Telephone + 27 74 117 xxxx.
My name is James Udo, the elder son of Mr. Tami Moboyo Udo of Zimbabwe .
This might be a surprise to you about where I got your contact address. I got your address from the South African Chamber of Commerce in Johannesburg , South Africa .
During the current war against the farmers in Zimbabwe from the supports of our President Robert Mugabe to claim all the white-owned farms to his party members and his followers, he ordered all white farmers to surrender all farms to his party members and his followers.
My father is One of the best farmers in our country and because he did not support Mugabes ideas,Mugabes supports invaded my fathers farm and burnt everything in the farm,killing my father and made away with a lot of items in my fathers farm.
Before his death, my father had deposited with of the Security Company in Johannesburg, South Africa the sum of US$25,5 MILLION (TWENTY FIVE MILLION FIVE HUNDERD THOUSAND UNITED STATES DOLLARS). After the death of my father, we decided to move to the Republic of South Africa where he had deposited the money in the Security Company as valuables.
So I decided to contact overseas firm or a private Individual that will assist me to move this money out of South Africa because as asylum seekers we are not allowed to operate any Bank Account within South Africa . We have agreed to offer you 25% of the total sum for your assistance, while 75% will be for me and my family to invest in your country.You can reach my Mother on this number but please note that she does not speak much of English. Please do email us through the below email address.
