Yes, you read correctly – Earn 25% of US$33.5 million dollars. How much is that? It is about US$8.375 million dollars free cash, which means that you could be forever rich!
This is a scam, period.

Subject: STRICTLY CONFIDENTIAL
You may be suprised to receive this letter from me since you dont know me personally,but for the purpose of introduction I am ALI MAYO, the son of DR. JOSEPH MAYO, who was currently murdered in the land dispute in Zimbabwe.I got your contact from the International Trade Centre ,here in Johannesburg and decided to write to you.My late father was among the few black Zimbabweans rich farmers murdered in cold blood by the agents of the ruling Goverment of President Robert Mugabe for his alleged support and sympathy for the Zimbabwean opposition party controlled by white minority.
Before his death he had taken me to Johannesburg to deposit the sum of THIRTY THREE MILLION FIVE HUNDRED THOUSAND US DOLLARS (33.5 MILLION US DOLLARS)with a security and finance company,as if he knew the looming danger in Zimbabwe.The money was deposited in a box as a gemstone to avoid much demurrage from the security company.This money was earmarked for the purchase of new machinery and chemicals for the farms and the establishment of new farms in Lesotho and Swaziland.
The land problem arose when President Robert Mugabe introduced a new land act which,wholly affected the rich white farmers and few blacks vehemently,condemned the Modus Operandi,adopted by the goverment.This resulted to rampant killings and mob actions by the war veterans and some political thugs.Precisely,so many people have lost thier lives as a result of it.There is starvation in the land right now.It is all over the news.
Heads of Goverments from the West,especially Britain and the United States of America have voiced their condemnation of Mugabe’s plan.Subsequently,the South African Development Communities (SADC)has continuously supported Mugabe’s new Land Reform Act.It is against this background that my family and I who are currently living in South Africa have decided to transfer my father’s money into foreign account.As the eldest son of my Father,I am saddled with the responsibility of seeking for a genuine foreign partner who will help me transfer this without the knowledge of my Goverment who are tactically freezing our family’s wealth and South African Goverment seems to go along with them.
I am faced with the dilemma of investing this money in South Africa for fear of encountering the same experience in future since both countries have almost the same political history.More so,the South African Foreign Exchange Policy does not allow such investment here because I am seeking asylum.
As a businessman whom I entrust my future and that of my family in his hands,I must let you know that this transaction is 100% risk free and the nature of your business does not necessarily matter.Therefore if you accept to assist my family,we are willing to offer you 25% of the total sum of your assistance,70% for my family’s investment and mean while 5% is mapped out for all expenses that may occure in the course of this transfer.I would wish to invest in your commercial property based on your advice and I would also receive assurance that you wouldn’t sit on this money when transfered into your personal or company’s account.
If this proposal is acceptable to you,please do send to me your personal details:telephone and fax numbers.You should know that this business is highly confidential and shall be kept within you alone.
I hope to hear from you soonest.
May God bless you as you treat this matter with the urgency it requires.
MR. ALI MAYO (for the family)
