Subject: EXPECTING TO HEAR FROM YOU.
FROM MRS. ANNA ISREAL
I am not surprise on the fear/confusion this letter might cause you coming from a widow that you do not know or have never met before but I decided to send you this letter irrespective of the above facts because I am desperately in need of your help.
As you might be aware of the recent problem in our country (Zimbabwe) regarding the ill treatment and silent killings of the white and black farmers who are against the farm invasion by President Robert Mugabe(a dictator, a killer and the worst ever ruling president alive in Africa), It happened that my husband was among the latest victims of silent killings by the war veterans armed by President Robert Mugabe which happened on the 9th February 2005.

But before this incident, my late husband brought to my attention the sum of US$7.5 million which he successfully took to the Republic of South Africa for safe-keeping. As if he knew that his final days was approaching, he asked my only son to move over to South Africa to secure the beneficiary ownership of the said fund which he kept in one of the biggest private security company there.
The main reason why I am contacting you through this medium is for you to contact my son Engr. Kerebua Isreal on his direct telephone no. as +27-84-324-2607 immediately in other to assist him in moving this fund abroad as our continuing stay in Africa might cost our life. The exact thing that you will be required to do according to my knowledge would be to provide him with your account details, your direct telephone/fax numbers and travel to meet him in South Africa for aiding him in opening an account where the funds will be deposited before its transfer as he is not allowed to operate any form of bank account or even do any investment because he is a refugee.
There is no risk involved in assisting us as all necessary legal documents that will be required by South African government for transfer of huge amounts will be available but you will have to ensure that you will keep this confidential as our life and security depends on this fund. Should you be willing to assist us in this endeavor, 20% of the total sum will be for you, 5% will be mapped out to cover all expenses while 75% will be for us.
Please feel free contact my son immediately and should you not be interested, please inform us as well so that we can scout for some one else.
MRS. ANNA ISREAL.
