Dearest one,

I know this letter may come to you as a surprise considering the fact that we  have not had any 
formal acquaintance before. We would want you for the sake of God to give this an immediate 
attention in view of the fact that the security of our lives and future are at stake.

I am Felix Basil 23 years old from ZIMBABWE but presently domiciled in Red
Cross VALENCIA- SPAIN with my younger sister Rita Basil who is 20 years old.  My father Mr Mulage 
Michael Basil who before his untimely assassination by the ruthless government forces of Robert 
Mugabe was a renowned Farmer in Bulawayo Town in Zimbabwe. He was killed in our home town 
residential house at Bulawayo along side two of my other brothers, two house maids, because my 
father joined the international community in condemning and speaking out  against this uncivilized 
and bizarre policy of Robert Mugabe's government. As a result of my father firm and upright 
position on this matter, a group of  assailants suspected to be government sympathizers attached 
and killed my father in cold blood in February last year. Fortunately for Me, my younger sister and 
mother, we were at our house in Harare the capital city were we reside as our mother decided that 
we stay with her while others go the weekend with my father. As we got the news of the tragedy. We 
immediately managed to ran into neighbouring country (Johannesburg) in South Africa for refugee. 
Unfortunately, As fate would have it, we lost our dear mother (may her soul rest in peace) as a 
result of what the Doctor called cardiac arrest. 

As we were coming into Johannesburg, we had some documents of a deposit of $ 20.7m (Twenty Million 
seven hundred thousand USD) deposited by my late father in a security and trust company here in 
Spain . According to my late mother our father had, sensing the rising hostilities, sold some of 
his farm lands including those of some of his white farmer associates who had transferred ownership 
of their farm lands to my father to forestall the government acquiring them he intends to use this 
fund for his international business. Right now we are in Spain through the help of the Red Cross 
society and the catholic church in Johannesburg.

We had located the security company where the money is deposited with the help of an attorney we 
were able to establish ownership in my name as the next of KIN. Please right now, with the bitter 
experiences we had in our country we can not go back because we don't have any body to stay with, 
Coupled with the incessant political upheavals and hostilities in our country today and African sub 
regions, we desire seriously to leave here and live the rest of our life into a more peaceful and 
politically stable country like yours. Following the misfortune that has befallen our future. We 
therefore wish that you can help us in the following regards:

1) To adopt us as your own children as we do not wish to go back to Africa.
2)   To provide us with a good bank account to transfer the money into when claimed from the 
security company.
3)   To help us invest the money into a lucrative business.
4)   To assist us get a college admission to further our education as it was the wish of our 
parents before there death.
5)   To assist us in getting residential permits for formal and comfortable stay in your country 
after the money must have been transferred into the account you will provide if you would not adopt 
us as your children.

Please I know that, this letter may sound strange and incredible to you, but the CNN and the BBC 
African bulletin always have it as their major news features even till date. Therefore for the sake 
of God and humanity give an immediate positive consideration and reply to me through my e-mail

suitable percentage of the money you will propose as your compensation for your assistance with 
regards to the above if you would not have us as your own children, as we don't intends to share

still conscious of our father's enemies. I would like you to give this a highly confidential 
approach. If you are willing to assist us in this send an Email to
