New Scam From London?


This letter may come as a surprise because we have not
met nor had any
previous correspondences but was borne out of my
sincere burning desire
to establish a business/mutual relationship with you.I
got your contact
through my private search here in London and decidedto
write you since
I felt that this is the only medium to reach you for l
hope I will not
regret ever approaching you because this present world
is filled of dishonesty and mistrust.

My name is Mark Ford, the only son of Mr Terry Simpsom
Ford who was murdered by the agents of President
Robert Mugabe due to his opposition to the oppressive
and exploitative Land reforms Act. Though,
I do not know to what extent you are familiar with
events and fragile
political situation in Zimbabwe but i know it has
formed consistent headlines in the CNN,BBC news
bulletins.You can futher read about the death my late

pressure from the government forced me and my
family out of Zimbabwe into exile in New Zealand and
then down to London,United
Kingdom where we have been living under political
asylum for a few years now. Sadly, my mother died of
cancer some months ago and was buried here in
London.Prior to her death, she handed me over a
certified documents meant for Deposit,which my father
made with the bank.The deposit, which is worth
$16,000.000.00( Sixteen
Million United States Dollars),was deposited in the
bank before the
outbreak of war.

he deposit in his name with the hope of relocating his
family to the neighboring town of Tanzania but was
murdered when the conflict intensified as a result of
his opposition to the oppressive and depotic
government of Robert Mugabe.I have contacted the bank
to confirm the deposit and established an ownership
link as next of kin. with respect to the certified
document handed over to me by my mother
after the death of my father and followed by her death
and the continued hostility in mycountry Zimbabwe,I
have decided to remain here for now and solicit for
the assistance of an honest and trustworthy person who
will assist me in the business re-investment of the
said money. I cannot do this due to my present social
status as a refugee here and my total ignorance of the
business world.You will be given 30% of the said
money and a sharesholder base in the investment if
secured .If you are honest, trustworthy, capable of
investing this sum of money, contact me to give you
all the details you need to know about this
immediately.For my safety, you must maintain absolute
confidentiality to ensure success. Please, indicate
your personal Tel/Fax numbers when replying this mail
to my personal email address:

Best regards,

Mark Ford

Re: New Scam From London?

Yep, old scam, new twist. I've been getting those letters , almost everyday now, for about a year. The addressing to MY love, and all that other charming talk is new. They normally come as very business like, but portray themselves as some very important person, who somebody with very close financial ties someone very important. Normally they are from either Nigeria or Benin. I have seen them come from some other countries in that region. They are always in desperate need of assistance and offer you a cut of a very large sum of cash, but still you feel like your getting ripped off, even if the deal was not just an attempt to either have you take the fall, or get busted upside the head, robbed and stranded out in some foreign country. These countries are by no means sympathetic to you because you were going to take part in a plot to steal money from their country. The language in all of them is very broken and incorrect english. The way it reads though, it seems that the bothched English is deliberate, trying to make you think that the person is from a non-english speaking country. Don't do what I did, reply back with basically telling where to go. Any response at all makes you an automatic target to start getting spammed by them, no matter what you said in your reply.
