Jennifer Makosana Pius Anyim Version: “West African advanced fee” or “419” Email Scam
This is another version of the Nigerian email scam, now being sent out by “Jennifer Makosana.”
Miss Jennifer Makosana
You may be surprised to receive this letter from me since you don’t know
me personally. I am Miss Jennifer Makosana, the first daughter of Late
Joseph Makosana, who was murdered in a land dispute in Zimbabwe. I got your
contact through an internet trade directory here in Italy and I decided to
contact you. I do not know your person but I relied on faith to see me
Black war veterans claiming to be farmers, invaded my father’s house on
April 16, 2000 at about 6.32am in Macheke/Virginia district and murdered my
father because of his insistence that white farmers be allowed to retain
their farm lands despite the recently introduced land reforms “Act” in
Zimbabwe by the head of state, Sir Robert Mugabe. Until his death he was
the vice president of the Zimbabwean Farmers’ Union (ZFU). It took us so
long to contact you because we had to wait for the appropriate time to do
so. (The reason I will explain to you in details later on.)
Before his untimely death, he had deposited the sum of Nineteen Million,
Five Hundred Thousand Dollars (US$ 19,500,000.00) This money was deposited
in a box as family valuables for security concerns from me and my family.
This fund was meant for the purchase of new machinery and agro-allied
chemicals for the new farms acquired in Swaziland.
This land problem came when our President, Sir Robert Mugabe introduced a
new land act “Modus Operandi” reform which wholly affected the rich white
farmers. A lot of people were killed because of this land reforms “Act” of
which my late father was one of the main targets. My father was solely
targeted because of his support for the white farmers.
Based on this, my family had to spread out; I am now in Italy with my
brother as refugees while my mother and my younger sisters are living in
South Africa as refugees as well. We decided to contact you to assist us in
transferring this money to your account in your country or any part of
the world for investment as the monetary/investment laws of South Africa and
Italy prohibits refugees from running bank accounts or be involved in any
transaction/investment. Based on this, we contacted you hoping that you will
assist us with this transaction in the name of God.
As the only educated daughter, I am saddled with the responsibility of
seeking a genuine and an honest person who will assist us in transferring
this money out of South Africa without the knowledge of my
country(Zimbabwe) government who are bent on taking everything my late
father had after confiscating all his farmlands and investments in Zimbabwe
and Swaziland. We are absolutely left with nothing except the money I
talked about previously.
For your kind assistance, my mother and I are offering you 20% of the funds
after the successful transfer of the funds to your account .5% will be set
aside for any expenses that might result in the process of this transaction,
while 75% will be for my family which will be used for investment in your
country under your direction as we do not know anything about investments.
Please contact me through the e-mail addresses indicated above if this
proposal is of interest to you, while I implore you to maintain absolute
confidentiality required in this transaction. If not, then I humbly
apologise for this infringement on your privacy.
Miss Jeniffer Makosana.
