Dear Friend, It is out of desperation I am sending you this email. I would like to remain anonymous for now till I am able to trust your confidentiality in this matter. My husband and I need your help to front for us as owners of funds that are his which might come under investigation if the funds ownership is not changed soonest as my husband's finances are increasingly becoming the source of investigation by our detractors. The source of this fund, which my husbandís earnings would not validate, will further sink him into the cesspool dug by our enemies. It is because of the dire situation we find ourselves that we resolve to reach you and ask for your assistance in this matter. It is only customary in Africa when one occupies a high position like my husband did, to enjoy the privilege of being presented with gratifications sometimes through the award of contracts especially by companies that came into operation during his tenure. But due to the recent plot by our detractors towards my husband, hence we immediately wish to move some funds away that his income cannot account for and which came in form of gratification while he was in office. We are averse to letting those we know here in my country into this transaction because we are no longer sure who our friends are. You will be handsomely rewarded if you choose to help us in partnership in this deal. If you are willing to assist us, please do reply me through this e-mail address firstname.lastname@example.org I will be expecting to hear from you as soon as possible, and will disclose further details to you upon your response. Do well not to disclose the content of this mail to anyone please. Best Regards Mrs. Lindiwe Zuma.
