You may be surprise to receive this letter from me,since you dont know me personally,I am Peterson Mubah. The son of Dr Smith Mubah, Who was recently murdered in the land dispute in Zimbabwe. I got your contact as i was searching for a reliable and reputable person to handle a very confidential business which involve a transfer of fund to a foreign account and i decided to write you. My late father was among the few black Zimbabwean opposition party rich farmers murdered by the agents
of the ruling Government of president Robert mugabe,for his alleged support and sympathy for the Zimbabwean opposition party controlled by the white minority, Before my father death,he had taken to johannesburg and deposited the sum of twenty five million united state dollars (US$25,000,000)with a security and financial company,The money right now is in (EUROPE), as if he forseen the looming danger in zimbabwe. The money was deposited in a box as valuable items to avoid over taxed custom clearance. This money was allocated for the purchase of new machinery and chemical product for Agro-allied farms and for establishment of new farms in lesotho and swaziland.This land problems arose when president Robert mugabe introduced a new land act that wholly affected the rich white farmers
and some blacks vehemently condemned the "modus operandi"adopted by the
This result to rampant killings and mob action by the war veterans and some political Thugs,precisely more than three thousand( 3,000)people have so far been killed.Heads of government from the west, especially Britain and united states have voice their condemnation of Mugabe's plans.Subsequently, south Africa have development community(S.A.D.C)has continousy supported mugabe's new land act, it is against this background that my entire family who are currently
residing in South Africa have decided to ! transfer my father's wealth and south Africa's government
seems to be playing along with them.I am face with the dilemma of investing this money in south Africa for fear of encountering the same experience in the future, since both countries have almost the same political history. Moreso,the south African foreign exchange policy does not allow such
investment,Hence i am seeking for(political asylum) AS a business person whom i entrusted my future and that of my family into his hands, 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 we are offering you 20% of the sum ,70% for me and my family,while 10% will be mapped out for any expenses that we may
incurre during this transaction.We wish to invest our money on commecial properties based on your advice. Finally, i will demand for assurance that you will not sit on the money when it gets to your personally account or comp! any account in your country, If this proposal is accepted please confirm
your interest by sending this above to firstname.lastname@example.org
God Bless You,

Dear Mr. Mubah:
Thank you so much for your correspondence. No, I am
not familiar with you or your father, but I am quite
acquainted with that bastard Mugabe who swindled my
uncle and his son out of over $6 milllion in land
Needless to say, I am quite interested in pursuing
anything that would tarnish the reputation of that
political criminal. I vowed to never due business in
Africa again, but this deal of yours sounds too sweet
to pass up -- cash and revenge all at once!!! My heart
pounds mercilessly in my bosom.
As my refferneces doubtless contested, my credentials
are imppeckable and I am quite knowledgeable in these
transactions. Also, I have quite excellent real estate
professionals on my staff who can find appropriate
commercial properties to investe upon.
First, however, I shall need a show of good faith from
your end. What may you offer? I should think that $500
US dollars (please cash currency) would be sufficient
to establish my trust in you so that we may proceed
with due haste.
Please send such funds in cash currency to
PO BOX 13311
Hamilton OH 45013
He is a reliable fellow, but not very articulate, so
pleas do not contact him directly.
Your most trusted friend,
Ken Smith, O.U.T.S

Thanks for your prompt response.
I would have love to send you the $500 cash but i dont have it at the monent.
Maybe you think the proposal I sent to you that I am in possesion of the funds now,but the answer is no that is why I need your assistance to stand for me as my beneficiary because of my asylum status in the Nederlands which does not permit me to have my own private account or participate in any transaction in the country.Therefore ,though I am my late father's next of kin i cannot claim the funds myself from the finance company.
Hence i need your assistance to claim this money.
I hope you understand me.
I look forward to your urgent response
God bless you.

Dear Mr. Mubhah:
Do you think I was born on a turnip truck? I am a professional and not about to be taken in by flimsy confidence games. If you cannot send me a deposit, then tell me what assurances I have that this isn't some trick to take my money away from me. I won't be fooled again!!!
