My Brethren ,
Calvary greetings in the name of our Lord
Jesus Christ, I am former Mrs Fatima Aisha Alamin, now Mrs Elizabeth Alamin, a widow to
Late Sheik Mohammed Alamin, I am 72years old, I am now a new Christian convert, suffering
from long time cancer of the breast. >From all indications, my condition is really
deteriorating and is quite obvious that I may not live more than six months, because the
cancer stage has gotten to a very severe stage.
My late husband was killed during the
Gulf war, and during the period of our marriage we had a son who was also killed in a cold
blood during the Gulf war. My late husband was very wealthy and after his death, I
inherited all his business and wealth. My personal physician told me that I may not live
for more than six months and I am so scared about this. So, I now decided to divide part
of this wealth,by contributing to the development of evangelism in Africa,America, Europe
and Asian Countries. This mission which will no doubt be tasking had made me to recently
relocated to Nigeria, Africa where I live presently. I selected your church after visiting
the website for this purpose and prayed over it, I am willing to donate the sum of
$10.000,000.00 Million US Dollars to your Church/Ministry for the development of
evangelism and also as aids for the less privileged around you.
Please note that, this fund is lying in a
Security Company in Netherlands and the company has branches, therefore my lawyer will
file an immediate application for the transfer of the money in the name of your ministry.
Please, do not reply me if you have the intention of using this fund for personal use
other than enhancement of evangelism.
Lastly, I want you/your ministry to be
praying for me as regards myentire life and my health because I have come to find out
since my spiritual birth lately that wealth acquisition without Jesus Christ in one's life
is vanity upon vanity. If you have to die says the Lord, keep fit and I will give you the
crown of life.

believe that you will meet our standard and that you will not take undue advantage of my
situation and that of my family.

with your Bank details (either private or companys account) where this money will be
deposited or come to South Africa to open a remittance account(non-resident account) in
your name or that of your company where we can pay in this money before it can be

this money is confirmed to be in your account, my mother and I will come over to your
country to invest it.
We urgently need your sincere
co-operation. Be assured that the transfer of this money into your account will be in a
matter of days by assurance of my lawyer. I assure that nobody knows about this

SOUTH AFRICA. PHONE: 27-83-46-76-111. FAX: 27-73-199-6412. email@example.com
APPEAL FOR ASSISTANCE
With due respect trust and humility, it
is my pleasure appealing for your assistance at this point in time.
I am HENRY MOLALA the eldest son of Dr.
Sam MOLALA, who was recently murdered with other whites in the land dispute violence in
Zimbabwe this year.
In my keen interest to invest in your
country. I got your contact through the South African Information Exchange (S.A.I.E) here
in Johannesburg, South Africa and decided to write for an ssistance.
My late father was among the few
black-Zimbabwean rich farmers murdered in cold blood by the killer-squad of the ruling
party Zimbabwean Government of President Robert Mugabe on the 6th of June 2002, for his
alleged support and sympathy for the opposition party controlled by the whites and this
crisis and cold blood-murdered reports.
Before his death, he had taken me to
Johannesburg to deposit the Sum of US$18,500 000.00 (Eighteen Million Five Hundred
Thousand United States Dollars) with a Security and Finance Company for safekeeping as if
he foresaw the looming danger that could erupt from the farm struggle in Zimbabwe. This
money was deposited in a box as a consignment labelled ''FAMILY TRASURE'' with the
This frame of mind was inform as not to
allow the company management have the knowledge of the real content of the box for obvious
security reasons. This money was earmarked for the purchase of machines and agro-chemicals
for the farms and the establishment of new farm settlements in Lesotho and Swaziland.
This land problem arose when President
Robert Mugabe introduced a new land acts the called (LAND EVICTION ORDER) which wholly
affected the rich white farmers and some objective blacks vehemently condemned the modus
operandi adopted by the government.
This resulted to forceful ejection of
whites from their lands, rampant Killings, arson and mob actions by the war veterans and
some political thugs. Precisely, more than one hundred and seven (107) people have been
killed and many others maimed for life in the past, and up till now, BBC and CNN have
reported of more killings in the farmland violence.
Heads of government from the western
world, especially Britain and the United States of America have voiced their condemnation
over Mugabe's obnoxious land acts. Subsequently, the Southern African development
Community (S.A.D.I) has continuously supported Mugabe's new land reform Acts. It is
against this background that my family and I who are currently staying in South Africa
have decided to transfer this money out of South Africa into a trusted foreign account.
As the eldest son of my late father, I am
saddled with the responsibility of seeking a genuine foreign account where this money
could be transferred to, without the knowledge of Zimbabwean government who have
tactically frozen my family's wealth.
Secondly, my mother is presently sick of
heart disease and the need to fly out for a medical operation on her is very important,
but how can we fly without this fund. Presently, we are residing temporarily in
Johannesburg pending the outcome of an appeal filed on our behalf by our attorney for the
department of Home Affairs to grant us asylum status. At the moment we are in dilemma to
the fiscal laws inhibiting South African Refugees on monetary policy.
We request that this proposal should be
granted so that we can be able to transfer this money to your nominated account outside
South Africa for investment purpose. As a businessman whom I wish to entrust my future and
that of my family in his hands, I must let you know that this transaction is 100% risk
free as far as you keep it secret.
The modalities to this transfer are ready
with the help of a banker (who has been assisting us)here in South African, who by his
help we have finished all the arrangement, the way this money should be transferred
easily. But the problem we are facing is how to get an honest and responsible person that
can keep this money safe and stand as the beneficiary.
I have two options, firstly you can
choose to have certain percentage of the money for nominating your account for this
transaction, or you can go into partnership with me for proper profitable investment of
the money in your country.
Whichever the option you want, feel free
to notify me. I have also mapped out 5% of this money for all kinds of expenses that might
be incured in the process of this transaction. If you do not prefer a partnership, I am
willing to give you 20% of the total money, while 75% will be for my family.
If you are really capable and willing to
assist me I am looking forward with a view to hearing from you soonest.
Mr. Henry Molala.

ASSISTANCE REQUIRED FOR INVESTMENT IN ANY
VIABLE BUSINESS IN YOUR COUNTRY
I write to inform you of my desire to
invest in any viable business in your country on behalf of the Director of Contracts and
Finance Allocations of the Federal Ministry of Power and Steel in Nigeria. Considering his
very strategic and influential position, he would want the transaction to be as strictly
confidential as possible. He further wants his identity to remain undisclosed at least for
now, until the completion of the transaction, hence our desire to have an overseas agent.
I have therefore been directed to inquire if you would agree to act as our overseas agent
in order to actualize this transaction.

you shall be considered to have executed a contract for the Federal Ministry of Power and
Steel in Nigeria for which payment should be effected to you by the Ministry, The contract
sum of which shall run into US$9.5Million, of which your share shall be 10% if you agree
to be our overseas agent. As soon as payment is effected, and the amount mentioned above
is successfully transferred into your account, we intend to invest our own share in any
viable business in your country. For this too, you shall also serve as our agent. In the
light of this, I would like you to forward to me the following information:
1. Your company name, address and
activities 2. Your company phone and fax number 3. Your personal telephone number for easy

FROM: MR ROBERT TOURE. AUDITING AND
ACCOUNTING UNIT. FOREIGN REMITTANCE DEPT. (BIAO) BANK ABIDJAN COTE D'IVOIRE
I am MR ROBERT TOURE Director in charge
of auditing and accounting section of (BIAO)Bank Abidjan Cote d'Ivoire in west Africa with
due respect and regard.
I have decided to contact you on a
business transaction that will be very beneficial to both of us at the end of the
During our investigation and auditing in
this bank,my department came across a very huge sum of money belonging to a deceased
person who died on 1 February 1997 in a plane crash on air Senegal on aircraft Name Hawker
Siddeley HS-748 This crash happened in Tambacoumba, Senegal, Africa and the registration
number of the aircraft is 6AV-AEO, and since his untimely death the fund has been dormant
in his account with this Bank without any claim of the fund in our custody either from his
family or relation before our discovery to this development.
Although personally, I keep this
information secret within myself and partners to enable the whole plans and idea be
Profitable and successful during the time of execution. The said amount was
usd$17.5M(Seventeen million Five Hundred Thousand united states dollars).
As it may interest you to know, I got
your impressive information through my good friends who works with chamber of commerce on
foreign business relations here in Abidjan Cote d'Ivoire. It is him who recommended your
person to me to be viable and capable to champion a business of such magnitude without any
problem Meanwhile all the whole arrangement to put claim over this fund as the bonafide
next of kin to the deceased, get the required approval and transfer this money to a
foreign account has been put in place and directives and needed information will be
relayed to you as soon
as you indicate your interest and
willingness to assist us and also benefit yourself to this great business opportunity.
In fact I could have done this deal alone
but because of my position in this country as a civil servant, we are not allowed to
operate a foreign account and would eventually raise an eye brow on my side during the
time of transfer because I work in this bank. This is the actual reason why it will
require a second party or fellow who will forward claims as the next of kin to the Bank
and also present a foreign account where he will need the money to be re-transferred into
on his request as it may be after due verification and clarification by the correspondent
branch of the bank where the whole money will be remitted from to your own designated bank
May I at this point emphasize that this
is 100% risk free as I have made
arrangements for a successful arrangement as an insider of the bank before contacting you.
On smooth conclusion of this transaction, you will be entitled to 30% of the total sum as
gratification, while 10% will be set aside to take care of expenses that may arise during
the time of transfer and also telephone bills, while 60% will be for me and my partners.
Please, you have been adviced to keep
this a top secret as we are still in service and intend to retire from service after we
conclude this deal with you.
I will be monitoring the whole situation
here in this bank until you confirm the money in your account and ask us to come down to
your country for subsequent sharing of the fund according to percentages previously
indicated and further investment, either in your country or any country you advice us to
All other necessary information will be
sent to you on your acceptance to champion this transaction with me.
Yours Faithfully, MR ROBERT TOURE.
