Fraud Example 2
FROM: MRS HELEN JOHNSON
You might be surprise to receive this letter from me since you don't know me
personally. I am Mrs.Helen Johnson the wife of late Mr Michael Johnson who
was murdered by the Zimbabwean war veterans and irate black people. I am
writing this mail from Harare, Zimbabwe.
I got your contact address through South Africa chamber of commerce and
industry. After due consideration of your profile, hence I decided to write
to you. I write to solicit for your special assistance to my family
shattered by a tyrannical government led by a dictator and his (ZANU-PF)
ruling party, President ROBERT MUGABE.
Because of land and farmland crisis in Zimbabwe the government Secretly
sponsored the war veterans and some irate party members to disposed the land
being occupied by the white farmers. This action has led to killing of some
members of opposition party including my husband who did not support this
ill-fated action. But before the death of my husband, he anticipated some
dangers and so he smuggled out the sum of US$25.5 million dollars (Twenty
five million five Hundred Thousand united state dollars) to South Africa and
deposited it in a Security Company with the intention of using it for the
purchase of farm machinery and chemicals for agricultural Purpose in South
Africa and establishment of a new farm in Swaziland.
This money was deposited in a box as family valuables to avoid much
demurrage in the Security Company. On the 29 august 2001 the war veterans
and some spotters of (ZANU-PF) ruling party trooped into our compound and
axed my husband to death and my second son of 22yrs. Since then they have
been terrorizing my son Anthony but he managed to escape to neighbouring
country South Africa as a political asylum seeker (refugee).
His position in South Africa does not permit him to open an account or to
operate any business. That is why I want this fund to be transferred in your
account so that you will assist him to invest the money in your country. If
you accept to assist us, all I want from you is to arrange and come down to
Johannesburg South Africa so that you can help him to open a non-resident

the money in your country whichever the option you want fell free to notify
with him. He will then furnish you with every detail you needed to know.
We have also mapped out 5% of the total sum for any expenses that might be
incurred during the time of this transaction. If you do not prefer a

70% will remain for my family, if you are really capable and willing to
assist us please contact him immediately in South Africa with this telephone
