You may be surprise to receive this letter
from me since you don't know me personally but please take this mail into
consideration as me and my family really needs your assistance and we
contacted you with good intentions.
I am Tony Kumba, the son of Dr.
John Kumba who was recently murdered in the land dispute in Zimbabwe. I got
your contact through Network on line in my search for a reliable and reputable
person to handle a very confidential transaction which involves a transfer of
fund to a foreign account and I decided to write you, my late father was
amongst the few black Zimbabwean rich farmers murdered in cold blood 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
Before his death, he had taken to Johannesburg -
South Africa to deposit the sum of US$ 5.5 Million (Five Million and Five
Hundred Thousand United States Dollars) with a Security Company which I will
inform you in due course as if he foresaw the looming danger in Zimbabwe. The
money was deposited in a box as "Valuables" to avoid much demurrage from the
Security Company. This money was embarked from the purchase of new machinery
and chemical for farms and the establishment of new farms in Lesotho and
This land problem arose when President Robert Mugabe
introduced a new Land act that wholly affected the rich white farmers and some
few blacks who vehemently condemned the "modus operandi" adopted by the
Government. This resulted to rampant killing and mob action by the war
veterans and some political thugs. Precisely, more than Eighty-one (81) people
have so far been killed. Heads of governments from the west, especially
Britain and United States of America have voiced their
condemnation of Mugabe's plan. Subsequently, South African development
Community (S.A.D.C) has continuously supported Mugabe's new land act, it is
against this background that I and my family who are currently residing in
South Africa have decided to transfer my Father's money into a foreign
account. As the eldest son of my Father, I am saddled with the responsibility
of seeking a genuine foreign account where this money could be transferred
without the knowledge of my government who are tactically freezing our family
wealth and South Africa Government seems to be playing along with them. I am
faced with the dilemma of investing this money in South Africa for fear of
encountering the same experience in future since both countries have almost
the same political history.
More so, the South African Foreign
Exchange policy does not allow such investment hence we are seeking for
"Asylum". As a business person whom I am about to entrust my future and that
of my family into his/her 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 25% of the total sum, 70% for me and
my family while 5% will be mapped out for any expenses we may incur during the
course of this transaction. We wish to invest our part of the money on
commercial property based on your advice.
Most importantly, I and my
family desire the following from you immediately we conclude this transaction:
i) To assist me continue my education
(ii) To assist us get a
nice and comfortable house in your country where we shall stay when we arrive
(iii) To assist us with the immigration process of residing in your
Finally, all we demand from you is assurance that you will not
sit on this money when it finally gets to your personal or company's account
in your country. If this proposal is acceptable by you, please confirm your
interest by replying immediately through this email address
view the websites below for more understanding regarding what has been
happening in my country Zimbabwe.
If you received a similar letter, please ignore it. Do not answer it.
If you do, you will end up on more of the mailing lists used by the
criminals behind this fraud. Read more....
