Dear Sir/Madam FAMILY ASSISTANCE.
My name is Mrs.Patricia Williams the wife of late Mr. Benjamin Williams of Zimbabwe. This might be a surprise to you about how I got your contact address. I got your contact address 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.
During the current war against the rich white farmers in Zimbabwe,From the supports of our president Robert Mugabe to claim all the white owned Farms to his own party members and his followers, he ordered all the white Farmers in Zimbabwe to surrender all their farms to his party members and his followers.
My late husband is one of the best farmers in our country, and because he did not support Mugabe's idea, Mugabe's supporters invaded my husband's Farmland and burnt everything in the farmland, killing my husband and made away with all the things in his farmland.
Before his death, my late husband had deposited with one of the Security Company in Johannesburg South Africa, the sum of $US25million (Twenty Five Million United States dollars). then after the death of my husband, my family decided to move to South Africa where my husband had deposited the money.
So I decided to contact an overseas partner that will assist me and my only son to move this money out of South Africa because as an asylum Seeker In South Africa, I cannot operate any account. We have agreed to offer you 20% of the total sum for your assistance, 10% has been mapped out for expenses and 70% for my family.
So Please, if you think you can be of any assistance to me and my family, Kindly furnish me with your private fax and mobile phone numbers for easy and smooth Communication with each other.And please I and my family will like to know more about you and your family.
You can contact me directly on my phone number +27 83 508 4603 for More details and clearifications.
Thanks and God bless you.
