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: STRICTLY CONFIDENTIAL
From: Mrs. Jenny Lumka
You may be surprised to receive this letter from me since you do not know me
personally; I am Mrs. JENNY LUMKA the wife of Mr. DAVID LUMKA, who was
murdered in the land dispute in Zimbabwe last Two Years. I got your contact
through world network online and your company profile, hence I decided to
write to you.
Before the death of my husband, he had taken my son DENNIS to South Africa
to deposit the sum of US$ 20m (twenty Million United States Dollars), in one
of the private security company, as if he foresaw the looming danger in
This money was deposited in a box as a family treasure to avoid much
demurrage from Security Company. This amount was meant for the purchase of
new machines and chemicals for the farms and established of new farm in
Swaziland. This land problem came when Zimbabwean President Mr. Robert
Mugabe introduces a new Land Act reform which wholly affected the rich white
farmers and some few blacks’ farmers. And this resulted to the killing and
mob action 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.
It is against this background that my son Dennis who is currently staying in
South Africa decided to transfer my husband money to foreign account 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 of South Africa.
I am saddle with the responsibility of seeking a genuine foreign partner who
can assist my son with his personal/company's account where this money could
be transferred without the knowledge of my government who are bent from
taking everything we had. 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.
Moreover, the South African Foreign Exchange policy does not allow such
investment as an asylum seeker. As a person, whom I have to entrust my
future and of my family in his hands, I must let you know that this
transaction is risk free. And upon acceptance of this proposal you are
advice to contact my son DENNIS LUMKA via this email
address:firstname.lastname@example.org, Telephone number :( 27-78-385-6135) For more
details of the transaction while I implore you to maintain the absolute
secrecy required in this transaction. I have two options for you; firstly
you can choose to have certain percentage of the money for nominating your
account for this transaction.
Or you can go into partnership with us for the proper profitable investment
of the money in your country. Whichever the options you choose, feel free
to notify me I have also mapped out 5% of this money for all kinds of
expenses incurred in the process of this transaction.
If you do not prefer a partnership I am willing to give you 15% of the money
while the remaining 80% will be for my investment in your country.
Best regards and God bless,
Mrs. JENNY LUMKA.
