15TH GRAYSON DRIVE & KATHERINE,
STREET SANDTON , JOHANNESBURG,
With due respect, trust and humility, I write to you irrespective of the fact that you do not know me, but please do consider this letter as a request from a widow and family in dare need of assistance. I am Mrs. Grace Mazwai Mayo, the widow of late Sir Jonathan G Mayo, the renowned Zimbabwean Wine and Cattle Ranch farmer and owner of MAYO FARMS in Zimbabwe. In our search for a trustworthy individual or companies to work with us on this very important and confidential project, I am writing because is an opportunity that will be of immense benefit to both of us.
During the war waged against the farmers in Zimbabwe by the supporters and cohorts of President Robert Mugabe to claim all the white owned farms in our country, my late husband belonged to one of the classes of farmers targeted by the ZANU-PF armed group, because he did not support their ideas and policies. In the course of the revolution in the country, the ZANU-PF armed group attacked and invaded my husband's farms, burning, destroying and eventually killing him. After my husband's death last year, I managed to escape the boundaries of Zimbabwe into neighboring South Africa with my only surviving son and daughter , because our lives were threatened and Zimbabwe was no longer safe for us. We escaped safely into South Africa with my husband's lifetime fortune of US$10.3M(Ten Million Three Hundred thousand US dollars) cash, important documents of property title and other valuables, which were concealed and secured in treasure box, and transported to Johannesburg through diplomatic means. The consignment box is currently safely lodged and secured in the vaults of a reputable security and brokerage firm here in Johannesburg.
Presently, I am residing temporarily with my children in Johannesburg, as political asylum seekers, and in recognition of your personal executive powers and investment opportunities that abound in your country; I solicit for your assistance in moving my family money into your bank account for safekeeping pending our future arrival in your country for investments. We shall require your presence here in South Africa, as soon as possible to assist us in the transfer of our money to your account. The family has resolved to compensate you adequately by offering a brokerage commission of 20% of the money for your assistance. I have in mind to establish a good business and friendly relationship with you in the nearest future if you are able to assist us.
Please let me receive your approval or reply through my son, Patrick K Mayo Jr, on TEL: +27-73-995-6682 or you can reply to any of this mail: email@example.com,

GRACE MAZWAI MAYO, (MRS)
