My name is Mr. Edos Afen a Central Bank of Zimbabwe employee,
During the last political disturbance by the Government held by president
Robert Mugabe, (I and my other colleagues worked out over US$14.5MuSD
(Fourteen Million Five Hundred United States Dollars Only) as an over
invoiced and inflated payment for election materials and the funds is now
with the security company in Netherlands for safe keeping.This opportunity
came because of our position as member of contract award and monitoring
committe during the electionary period.
Now that we are not sure of the future of this country, due to the cry of
sanction by world leaders in and around the world. For the brutal take over
of white people farm resident in Zimbabwe by the Mugabes Administration, and
the lack of purpose in the administration, my friends and I have decided to
invest this fund wisely.
We need the assistance of a foreign company/persons to push this money
into their accounts. You will do very well with what we have in mind. Your
share of whatever we succeed in putting into your account will be 20% of the
total sum, while 70% will be for us and 10% will be mapped out for any
expenses incurred by both parties in the process of the transfer, we require
you and expect your willingness to assist us.
I will refrain from giving out more operational details, until I receive
your reply. Since time is of the essence to us, reply this letter quickly so
as to know what next to do, even if this letter does not meet your approval,
please inform me. There is no risk involved, as we have done our homework
carefully. Looking forward to hearing from you.I can be reached on
this email address:firstname.lastname@example.org
