Dear Sir/Madam,

First of all, I would like to apologize for sending such significant proposal through this means (internet). You have to agree with me that many things have gone awful with the use of internet by some villains out there, and as a result of such act, many people are scared to accept business proposal through the internet. Meanwhile, I want to assure you that this proposal is not connected with any deceptive intent or evil proceed.

I am Mrs. Helen Marshall the wife of late Mr. Michael Marshall who was murdered by the Zimbabwean war veterans and irate black people. I am writing this mail from Harare, Zimbabwe. I got your contact address through South Africa chamber of commerce and industry. After due consideration of your profile, hence I decided to write to you. I write to solicit for your special assistance to my family shattered by a tyrannical government led by a dictator and his (ZANU-PF) ruling party, President ROBERT MUGABE.
Because of land and farmland crisis in Zimbabwe the government secretly sponsored the war veterans and some irate party members to dispose the land being occupied by the white farmers.

This action has led to killing of some members of opposition party including my husband who did not support this ill-fated action. But before the death of my husband, he anticipated some dangers and so he smuggled out the sum of Ten Million United States Dollars (US$10,000,000) to South Africa and deposited it in a Security Company with the intention of using it for the purchase of farm machinery and chemicals for agricultural Purpose in South Africa and establishment of a new farm in Swaziland.

This money was deposited in a box as family valuables to avoid much demurrage in the Security Company. On the 29 august 2006 the war veterans and some spotters of (ZANU-PF) ruling party trooped into our compound and axed my husband to death and my second son of 22yrs. Since then they have been terrorizing my son Phillip Marshall but he managed to escape to neighboring country South Africa as a political asylum seeker (refugee).His position in South Africa does not permit him to open an account or to operate any business.

That is why I want this fund to be transferred in your account so that you will assist him to invest the money in your country. If you accept to assist us, all I want from you is to arrange and come down to Johannesburg South Africa so that you can help him to open a non-resident bank account in your name which will aid us in transferring the money into your nominating account overseas.
I have two options for you, firstly, you can choose to have certain percentage of the money for nominating your account in this transaction or we can go into partnership with you for the proper profitable investment of the money in your country whichever the option you want fell free to notify with him. He will then furnish you with every detail you needed to know.

We have also mapped out 5% of the total sum for any expenses that might be incurred during the time of this transaction. If you do not prefer a partnership, we are willing to give you 25% of the money while the remaining 70% will remain for my family, if you are really capable and willing to assist us please contact him immediately in South Africa with this e-mail; [email protected], Finally please treat this mater as urgent as possible, I'm in dire him to leave that country soonest. Thanks for your mutual co-operation. I expecting you’re soonest and urgent response.

Best Regards,
Mrs Helen Marshall,

Dear Sir,

A lot of thanks for your response to my message, first I know that it is
hard to believe this kind of opportunity, but I want you to believe that is
God who bring us together to this opportunity for a reason. Your kind
response reconfirms all my trust and confidence to deliver this project to
you not minding that we have had no previous business relationship, most
especially the fund that my life and future depends on is involved.

Before we go further, I will like to re-introduce myself and reason of
consulting you to this transaction. As a matter of fact I want to transfer
this fund out of South Africa into your country on your name as my foreign
investor so that I will relocate to your country for business
negotiations immediately
we achieve the successful transferring of the fund. Please note that my
reason of consulting you to this transaction is that I cannot transfer this
fund out of the South Africa into your country on my names as I am
currently seeking for asylum in Republic of South Africa and the financial
laws of South Africa did not permit me the privilege to claims such
magnitude amount of fund as an asylum seeker. It is painful and sounds so
displeasing to let you know that I don’t want to involve any of my family
relation’s into this transaction due to since I lost my beloved father; no
one cares for my ware fare rather only fighting for my late father’s
estate. This is why I have made up our mind to relocate to unknown place
to start a new life where any of my family members will not locate us.
Please I want you to know that this transaction is 100% risk free and
legal if only we chose to be honest to ourselves to enable us to achieve
smooth transferring of the fund into your country.

For us to move forward, I have some few questions for you which I will like
to get the correct answers from you as a word of guarantee.

*The questions are these:*

(1) Please tell me if we are going to have any problem from you as a bridge
of contract after the successful transferring of the fund into your country?

(2) Do you have fax, telephone and cell phone numbers for faster
communication?

(3) Will you like to come to South Africa for you to see everything with
your eyes and for us to know ourselves in person before the transfer of the
fund to enable us build mutual trust for successful transferring of the
fund.

(4) I will want to go into a profitable business venture through your
advice according to the business atmosphere of your country, since I have
not been a businessman before because I will want you to guide me into a
profitable business venture as soon as we achieve the successful
transferring of the fund into your country.

As soon as I hear from you again, I will introduce to you the next step on
how we will achieve the hitch free transferring of the fund according to
the lay down arrangement.

Please feel free to ask me any question where you did not understand my
explanations (if)

Looking forward to your urgent response.

Yours truly,

Spamnesty

My Dear ,

Thank you for your kind response to my mother's proposal regarding an
urgent and confidential transaction. I do appreciate your interest and
willingness to offer a helping hand in this and more so your expressed
commitment towards the actualization of this project. I did note what
you said regarding the provision of your account and the transfer processes.

This is welcome but we have not gotten to that stage at the moment.For
purposes of clarity, I would like to give you a fresh explanation
on the purposes of this request. For your information again, we have a
family money which is secured in a private security company here in
South Africa; due to our political status here as asylum seekers, the laws
here do not give us the right to open an account or even
undertake any business enterprise.This is why we want to use a foreign
partner to get this money out; and then transfer to your account overseas.
After that, I will come over to your country for the sharing and where I
hope to reside and also invest our own part of the money with your
direction.

The funds are presently deposited in a private Security Company here in
South Africa and we need to retrieve the funds first before we talk
about transferring to your overseas account. This is the first step which
shall be followed by other steps.

The modalities for the completion of the business is also simple:

1.You will be required to come to South Africa during the final stages when
we will collect the money from the security company.

2.You will open an account in a Commercial bank here where we will deposit
the money before instructing the bank to transfer to your account abroad.

3.We will sign an investment agreement, before joining you to your country
for the sharing according to our agreed percentages.

All these processes will not take more than 10 days to be completed because
everything had been done to ensure a hitch free transaction.
All I want you to do is to furnish me with your full details such as name
and address, telephone and fax numbers and your profile. These
information will be sent to our family lawyer who will use them to start
the process of the changing of the ownership of the consignment
(Fund) to your name and the other necessary arrangements.

Please, I want you to reply immediately so that we will start processing
the release of the fund in your name, without any further
delay.
