This attempt at fraud is especially despicable because of its attempt to associate itself with the suffering of farmers in Zimbabwe
MRS. JOYCE CHIWEWE
JOHANNESBURG SOUTH AFRICA
With due respect, I write to you this proposal which I believe would be of great interest to you. I find your contact while I was doing a private research on the Internet for a reliable and capable foreign partner that will assist my family to transfer fund outside of South Africa for investment purpose.
I am MRS. JOYCE CHIWEWE the wife of Late MR.ERIC CHIWEWE, who was the “Chairman” of the farmer’s co-operation in Zimbabwe. My husband was among the few blacks that were murdered in cold blood by the agents of President Robert Mugabe Administration during the land dispute in Zimbabwe. On one of my husbands many trips to abroad, he took me to Johannesburg to deposit the sum of US$30 Million (Thirty Million United States Dollars) with a private security company as his foresaw the looming danger in Zimbabwe. The money was deposited with a private security company on our arrival in Johannesburg largely for its safety.
This land problem arose when President Mugabe who according to my husband father in a desperate bid to hold on to power for life introduced a new land act, which wholly affected rich farmers who were mostly white and some blacks vehemently condemned adopted by the government. That resulted in rampant killings looting and white scare mob actions by the veterans and scone political thugs. Head of government from western world especially Britain and the United States of America have voiced their condemnation against Mugabe action.
After the death of my husband, we decided to move out of ZIMBABWE because our lives were in danger. We are now living in South Africa as political Asylum seekers and the financial laws and regulations of South Africa do not permit us certain financial rights. In view of this we cannot invest this money in South Africa hence my asking you to assist us to transfer it out of South Africa for investment purpose in your country. So please consider this as a request from a family in dire need of assistance.
For your assistance, we are prepared to offer you 20% of the total sum after transfer to your account while 5% will be set aside for expenses incurred during the course of this transaction. We intend to invest the remaining 75% in your country with your professional advice as we have not been to your country before. Please note that this transaction is risk-free and the major thing I ask of you is to assure me the safety of the money when transferred into your account.
My Son ELTON will be glad to give you more clarification on the modalities needed for smooth successful completion of the transaction. Please we will like you to get back to us either through my confidential email: email@example.com or contact my son on +27835199224 or email him on. firstname.lastname@example.org
