Hello, I am Miss Young. I received the following email. It is a socalled
"Advance Fee Fraud" letter, where I am promised millions for
my assistance. These stories are all lies, and if I respond, sooner
or later I will be asked to pay a fee. If I pay, another fee will quickly
come up, and it will continue that way until I give up or run out of
money. I will never see the millions, because they never existed.

A PLEADS FOR ASSISTANCE:
You may be surprised to receive this letter from me hence you do not Know me
personally; please may I use this medium to introduce myself;
I am Mrs. Sandra Dumas Komo, the wife of Mr. Clifford Mbofana Komo, Former
President Zimbabwean Mechanized Farmer’s Association (ZMFA) and also Former
Leader Zimbabwean Anti- Farm Reforms (ZAFR) until his death. Who was
recently murdered due to the land dispute in Zimbabwe our country.
I got your contact through network online hence decided to write you and
seek for your assistance and co-operation.
Before the death of my Husband, he had taken me to Johannesburg to deposit
the sum of US$20.5 Million (Twenty Million, Five Hundred Thousand United
States Dollars), in one private security company, as if he foresaw the
looming danger in Zimbabwe.
This money was deposited in a box as germ stones to avoid suspicion from the
Security Company. This Fund was meant for the purchase of new machines and
chemicals for the farms and an establishment of another new farm in
This land disputes/problem came up after Zimbabwean President Mr. Robert
Mugabe’s Introduction of a new Land Act reform which wholly affected the
rich white farmers and Some few black rich farmers. And this resulted to the
killings and mob actions by Zimbabwean war veterans and some lunatics in the
society. In fact, a lot of people was killed because of this land reformed
Act for which my Husband was one of the victim, as the President of the then
Zimbabwean Mechanized Farmers Association (ZMFA), he was one of their mobile
target as induced by the President Mugabe’s government, until they
apprehended him and murdered him cold blooded.

It is against this background that, I and my only son Gerald who are
currently staying in South Africa decided to transfer my Husband` s money to
offshore for investment, since the law of South Africa prohibit a refugee
(asylum seeker) to open any bank account or to be involved in any financial
transaction throughout the territorial zone South Africa.
As a Single mother and a widow, I am saddle with the responsibility of
seeking a genuine foreign partner or personnel who would avail his/her
account where this money could be transferred without the knowledge of my
government who are bent from taking everything we have got.
The South African government seems to be playing along with them. I am faced
with the dilemma of investing this amount of money in South Africa for fear
of going through the same experience in future since both countries have
similar political history. Otherwise South Africa also does have a good
investment portfolio based on my few findings considering the upcoming 2010
World Cup in South Africa.
Moreover, the South African Foreign Exchange policy does not allow Such
investment with an Asylum seeker status holder.All these strategic points
lowered us into directly seeking for a foreign Investment partner or a
company whom we as a family would have to entrust our future and that of our
I must let you know that this transaction is risk free and has no illegality
involved from beginning to the end. Vibrant and transparent proposal from a
true mother and a widow whose true situation deserves an honest
consideration, Should you accept to assist me and my family, please consider
any of these two options;
First, you can choose to have only 20% percentage of the total amount for
nominating and using your foreign account for the transfer of the total
amount out of South Africa, while 70% percent will be for my family’s
investments in your country.
Secondly you can go into partnership with me for the proper profitable
investments in your country for a period of Six (6) years.
Whichever options you may choose, feel free to notify me I have also mapped
out 10% of the total amount for all kinds of expenses to be incurred during
the process of this transaction.
Please kindly contact me or my son on Gerald: +27 83 592 4415 or you may
email us on (email@example.com) or (firstname.lastname@example.org)
I implore you to please maintain the absolute secrecy required in this
Mrs. Sandra Dumas Komo.
