I recently received a scam email, rather than delete it i thought id go along with it, i am in deep now she has even booked a hotel room for me! she has yet to realise i am taking the piss, i will post up what i have so far, some of them are quite funny!
My name is as Maria Khumalo, the wife of Mr. Daniel Khumalo from the republic
of Zimbabwe. It might be a surprise to you where i got your contact address.
I got your contact from the South Africa Chamber of Commerce in
Johannesburg. During the current war against the farmers in Zimbabwe from
the supporters of our President Robert Mugabe, in his effort to chase all
the whit farmers out of the country, he ordered all the white farmers to
surrender their farms to his party members and his followers.
My husband, was one of the best andsuccessful farmers in our country and
formerly the Finance Minister of Robert Mugabe administration, but he did
not support the idea of dispossessing the white farmers of their and.
Because of this, his farm was invaded and burnt by government supporters. In
the course of the attack, my husband was killed, and the invaders made away
with a lot of items from my fathers farm.
And our family house was utterly destroyed. My husband died too out of heart
attack. he drew my attention to the sum of US$15.5 MILLION, Which he
deposited with a security company in South Africa during his tenure as the
Finance Minister of Zimbabwe. My son and I decided to move out of Zimbabwe
for our own security, because our lives were in danger. We decided to move
to the Republic of South Africa where my father deposited this money. Till
date, the security company is not aware of the content of the consignment
because my husband used his diplomatic immunity as at that time to deposit
the consignment as important personal valuables.
I decided to have contact with overseas person/firm who will assist me to
move the money out of South Africa. This becomes necessary because as
political asylum seekers, we are not allowed to own or operate a bank
account. If you accept this proposal, you shall receive 25% of the entire
amount for assisting us to move this money out, 70% of this amount shall be
for us, and the remaining 5% shall be mapped out for expenses incurred in
the course of the transaction. As soon as i get your response, I will give
you more details on how we can proceed. Thanks for your anticipated
cooperation. Urgent response waited.
