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.

The Managing Director,
You may be surprise to receive this letter from me since you don't know me
personally. I am Mr. Daniel Willson the son of Mr.Albert Willson who was
recently murdered in the landispute 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 among 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 white minority. Before his death he had taken to
Johannesburg - South Africa to deposit the sum of US$ 15 Million United
States Dollars with a Security and Finance Company as if he foresaw the
looming danger in Zimbabwe. The money was depositedin 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 Swaziland. This land
problem arose when President Robert Mugabe introduced a new land act that
wholly affected the rich white farmers and some few blacks 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 thirty-one (31) 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'splan.Subsequently, South African
Development Community(S.A.D.C) has continously 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's 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 an
"ASYLUM". As a business person whom I entrusted my future and that of my
family into his 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 20% of the total sum,75% for me and
my family while 5% will be mapped out for any expenses we may incure during
the course of this transaction.We wish to invest ourpart of the money on
commercial property based on your advice.
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
via the above TEL,FAX numbers or E-MAIL me.
Mr. Daniel Willson.
