Attn: Dear CEO,
PRIVATE AND CONFIDENTIAL
My names is Maxwell Dube Jnr. the first son of Mr.John H. Dube of zimbabwe. It might be a surprise to you where I got your contact address, i got it from the South African Chembers of Commence on my desperate search for a reliable and trustworthy person that will help me in this transaction and i was directed by the spirit of God to pick on you.
During the current crises against the farmers of Zimbabwe by the supporters of our President Robert Mugabe to claim all the white owned farms in our country, he ordered all the white farmers to surrender their farms to his party members and their followers.
My father was one of the best farmers in the country and knowing that he did not support the presidentʼs political ideology, the presidentʼs supporters invaded my fatherʼs farm burnt down everything, shot him and as a result of the wounds sustained, he became sick and died after two days.And after his death, My mother and I with two of my younger sisters decided to move out of Zimbabwe for the safety of our lives to South-Africa.
Before he died, he wrote his "WILL", which reads:
"(MY BELOVEED SON , I WISH TO DRAW YOUR ATTENTION TO THE SUM OF $38.7 MILLION U.S DOLLARS WHICH I DEPOSITED IN A BOX WITH A SECURITY COMPANY IN JOHANNESBURG (SOUTH-AFRICA). IN CASE OF MY ABSENCE ON EARTH CAUSED BY DEATH ONLY".
YOU SHOULD SOLICIT FOR A RELIABLE FOREIGN PARTNER TO ASIST YOU TO TRANSFER THIS MONEY OUT OF SOUTH-AFRICA FOR INVESTMENT PURPOSE.
I DEPOSITED THE MONEY IN YOUR NAME AND IT CAN BE CLAIMED BY YOU ALONE WITH THE DEPOSIT CODE. YOUR MOTHER HAS ALL THE DOCUMENTS.TAKE GOOD CARE OF YOUR MOTHER AND TWO SISTERS."
From the above, you will understand that the lives and future of my family depends on this money as much, I will be very grateful if you can assits us.We are now living in South-Africa as POLITICAL ASYLUM SEEKERS and the financial law of South-Africa does not allow ASYLUM SEEKERS certain financial rights to such huge amount of money.
In view of this, I cannot invest this money in South-Africa, hence I am asking you to assist me transfer this money out of South-Africa for investment pusposes.
For your efforts, I am prepared to offer you 20% of the total sum, while 5% will be set aside for local and international expenses and 75% will be kept for my family and investments in your country under your directives.
Finally, modalities on how the transfer will be done will be conveyed to you once we establish trust and confidence between ourselves.
Looking forward to your swift response.
Note: the key word to this transaction is absolute confidentiality and secrecy.This transaction is 100% risk free. Your urgent response will be highly appreciated.
