South Africa

Dear Friend,

Complements of the season.
I am delighted to contact you after coming across your contact in the
internet business page hence I have no doubt in your ability to handle a
transaction of this dimension which requires maximum confidentiality to
complete with a strong believe that you are not going to let me down.

I wish to introduce myself as Mrs. Muna Zulu Iyama, wife of the Late
General Zulu Iyama who was murdered in the heat of the tribal war in my country
(Somalia). May his soul rest in perfect peace. Amen.

Until his death; my husband was in charge of Ammunition Importation department
of the Fara Idid led rebel group.

It was in the event of our parking out of the military quarters that I found
in my late husband’s room a vault contain money valued at Twenty Two Million
United States Dollars(us$22,000,000.00) which I immediately shifted out of
my country to a private security company in South Africa as family
belongings for safe keeping.

Today, I am in the refugee camp here in South Africa while my Vault(money)
is stocked in the security company hence I seek your consent in clearing
this consignment on my behalf since my movement is restricted within the
Camp and this has to be done in the following directions;
1. Standing on my behalf in clearing the vault base on the documents I will
make available to you
2. Helping me in banking the fund in your name and country or where ever you
may consider comfortable and possibly move it into investment.
3. Securing traveling documents for me so that i will come out of the camp
to meet you where ever we can as soon as the fund have settled in an
account.
Also, I have decided to compensate your much needed assistance with 25% of
the total sum while 5% will be to take care of all your expenses in the
course of this transaction.
When I hear from you, I will be in a very good position to let you into a
clearer picture of this transaction expecting you to keep this transaction
confidential.
Best regards,
Mrs. Muna Zulu Iyama
NOTE: BASE ON THE AGREEMENT BETWEEN ME AND THE SECURITY COMPANY, THE
CONSIGNMENT CAN BE SHIFTED TO ANY OTHER COUNTRY OF OUR CHOICE WHERE SOUTH
AFRICA IS NOT COMFORTABLE WITH YOU

Two things:

Could someone please shed some light on how anybody with a basic understanding of life’s realities, could ever conclude that co-operating with this might be a good idea? And:

Does anyone know where one might send one’s application for the recently vacant position of Head of Ammunition Importation Department, Fara Idid Led Rebel Group, Somalia? I hear it’s a great little earner…

Geoff, at least it’s a change from the usual Nigerian suspects. Expect a raft of emails from the Solomons any day now.

My favourite was the one I received from a ‘Madame Mobutu’ re the inconveniently sequestered millions of her recently deceased hubbie – ‘the great African leader and philanthropist’.

I advised ‘her’ to contact the Congolese Treasury in Kinshasa who, I assured her, would be only too happy to assist as agent in recovering the loot.
