A Scam Email with the Subject "REPORT FOR 07-066-2007-06" was received in one of Scamdex's honeypot email accounts on Sat, 07 Jul 2007 04:50:41 -0700 and has been classified as a Advance Fee Fraud/419 Scam. The sender was "John Fitchpatrick" <firstname.lastname@example.org>, although it may have been spoofed.
You may be surprised to receive this letter from me since you do not know me personally. I am thfirst son to late Mr & Mrs. Simon moore who was murdered in the land dispute in Zimbabwe.
I got your contact through network online as i am searching for a reliable and reputable person as partner in a very confidential transaction that involves transfer of fund overseas.
My parents were among the few black Zimbabwean rich farmers murdered in cold blood by the agents of the ruling government of President Robert Mugabe for their alleged support and sympathy for the Zimbabwean opposition party controlled by the entire minority. Before their death they had come to EUROPE as one of the most peaceful to deposit the sum of US$15 MILLION (fifteen million united states dollars) with a security and finance company as they foresaw the looming danger in zimbabwe.
The money was packed in a trunk box as valuables/family treasures for security reasons and deposited with this security company for safe keeping. This money was embarked from the purchase of new machinery and chemicals for the establishment of new farms in Lesotho. The land problem arose when President Robert Mugabe introduced a new land act that wholly affected the rich white farmers and some few blacks vehemently condemned the "Modus Operandi" adopted by the government. This resulted to rampant killing and mob action by the war veterans and some political thugs.Precisely, more than 131 people have so far been killed and unforunately my parents were among the lot.
The european union,Heads of government from other African countries,the western world especially Britain and United States of America have voiced their condemnation of Mugabe's recent plan. Subsequently,South African Development Community (SADC) has continually supported the Mugabe's new land act,it is against this background that I and my family who are currently residing in Europe have decided to transfer this money to your country where we would want to relocate withyour assistance for the safety and future of our three children.
I am saddled with the responsibility of seeking for a genuine foreign partner who would help me in the transfer of this
money without the knowledge of my government who have tactically frozen all my father's wealth and South African government seems to be playing along with them.
I am faced with the dilemma of investing this money in South Africa but for fear of encountering the same experience in future since both countries have almost the same political history.
As a christian, I am entrusting my future and that of my family into your hands hoping that you will not betray the trust. I must let you know that this transaction is 100% risk free and the nature of your business does not necessarily matter.
For your assistance,I offer you 20% of the total sum, 75% for my family while 5% will be mapped out for any expenses we may incure during the course of this transaction.We wish to invest our part of the money on commercial property based on your advice. Finally, all we need from you is assurance that you will not sit on this money when it finally gets into your personal or company account in your country.
If this proposal is acceptable by you, please confirm your interest via email for further details.
Thank you and God bless.
Victor I. Moore.
