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.

Subject: hello dear
How are you and your work? I came across your profile as I was searching through the Internet for a reliable person to assist my family and me.
I am the only child to my father Mr. Khanya Zumali of Zimbabwe who died during the remote and current wars against the farmers in Zimbabwe from the supporters of our President Robert Mugabe to claim all the white-owned farms to his party members and his followers, he ordered all white farmers to surrender all their farms to his party members and his followers, which resulted in rampant killing and mob actions by the war veterans and some
political thugs; my late father was one of the best and richest farmers in my country and because he did not support Mugabe's dictatorial ideas, Mugabe's supporters invaded my father's farm and burnt everything in the farm, killing my father and his workers and made away with lots of item in my father's farm,
as If my father foresees the looming danger in Zimbabwe before his death' my father had deposited with one of the Security Company in Johannesburg South Africa the sum of US$15 million (fifteen Million United States Dollars) with my name as the next of kin.
After the death of my father, we (me and my mum) decided to move to the Republic of South Africa for safety and where he (my father) had deposited the money in the Security Company as a box containing Diplomatic valuables for security reasons, according to the instructions of my late father I wish to contact you
as an overseas/foreign business partner or beneficiary to the fund to assist me move or transfer this money out of South Africa.
On my arrival in SOUTH AFRICA I obtained refugee permit for security reasons. As an asylum seeker, I am not allowed to operate or run any form of bank account within South Africa because the refugee laws here does not permit asylum seekers certain financial rights such as running any form of account and that is the more reason why I need a foreign assistance
who is willing and capable of flying down to SOUTH AFRICA to open a non-resident/dollar investment account where the total sum will be deposited before onward transfer to the person's account overseas.
I spend a lot of time on the internet toiling almost every day to get some one who is kind that I can get tell my family's ordeal and probably get the person to assist me, if you are willing and capable of carrying out the transaction, We have agreed to offer you 20% of the total sum for your assistance, 5% has also been mapped out for any expenses that might be incurred in the course of this transaction and 75% will be for me and my family's investments in your country. All I want from you is sincerity and to furnish me with your personal phone and fax numbers if you prefer so' for easier and faster communication. Contact me on the above email address or my alternative email address: firstname.lastname@example.org
Please note that all information should be kept secret for us to have the 100% we desire
