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.

ATTENTION Miss Young!!
Date: Fri, 16 Jun 2006
From: Mr. Benson Border Gezi
Johannesburg, South Africa.
Dear Miss Young,
am Benson Border Gezi, the son of comrade Border Gezi, who was the
Zimbabwean Minister for youth, gender and Employment creation.
my father stood against seizure of white farms
and it's distribution to
blacks without compensation to
the white owners.
First and foremost, I apologized using this
medium to reach you for a
transaction / business of this magnitude,
but this is due to
and prompt access reposed
on this medium. In unfolding this proposal, I
on you, as a respected and honest person to handle this
with sincerity, trust and confidentiality. I have decided to seek a
confidential co-operation with you in the execution of the
described hereunder for the benefit of all parties
involved and hope you
will keep it as a top secret because of
the nature of this transaction.
Because of what is happening
in the world today and to verify my
predicaments as well as my
sincerity, I would like you to visit the site
below to read
more about my father.
Because of my father's sincerity, he was killed by a planned
along Harare-Masvingo Road near Mvuma Province
of Zimbabwe. But before
untimely death, my father told me
some few weeks earlier that he kept a
with a private
Security and finance Company in Johannesburg, South
which contains US$20.5 Million (Twenty million, five hundred thousand
States dollars). He warned that he only declared the contents
of the box
the Security and finance Company as family
treasure/ valuables, with
insurance values of the said amount. He
also told me that he used my
the beneficiary of this
money being his first child.
The original document that shows
the Deed of lodge, Proof of Deposit,
between my late father and the Management of the
Security Company was
kept with my mother.
After my father's death, mother, my
little sister and I ran to South
to seek asylum for
our lives. Because of the South African financial law
prohibits asylum seekers/refugees like my mother and I to open
account or involve in any financial transaction, I decided to write
to seek your assistance for this money to be
transferred into your
or personal bank account
while all arrangement for a hitch free transfer
fully taken care of. I have the authority of my family to
that should you be willing to assist us in this transaction your
compensation will be US$5.125m (25%), while my
family takes US$13.325m
and the balance of US$2.5m
(10%) for miscellaneous expenses that may be
incurred by either party
during the transfer.
I want to let you know that this
transaction is 100% risk free provided
treat it with
utmost confidentiality because the Zimbabwean Government
bent on collecting all assets / properties belonging to my late father.
Please endeavor to give me a call to acknowledge the receipt of
and for more confidential reason reply me via my
direct email address
Please, I do
hope that this money will be safe when finally transferred
your account and I do hope of establishing a good relationship with
your family after this transaction. I wait to hear
Regards & God bless,
(For and on behalf of my family)
