Read more about the history of this scam.

Greetings,

Permit me to inform you of my desire of going into business with you.
I am Helen Stewart, the only daughter of late Mr. and Mrs. Peter
Taylor Stewarts. We are white Zimbabweans, my father was a very
wealthy Farmer, with three tobacco farms in Chipinge, and is also a
majority owner of Glen Devon Farm also situated in Chipinge, in
Zimbabwe.

The Zimbabwean government under the leadership of President Robert
Mugabe announced a decree on May 31st 2000 to seize more than 849
white-owned farms. During these periods, as reported by international
media and the CNN, more than 50 white farmers were killed. The
government did not stop at this, as just recently the government has
asked all white-farmers to give up their farms to black farmers or
risk going to prison. So far, more than 1,400 white owned farms have
been invaded and confiscated, as well as claiming the properties of
the farmers. Also, about 133 white farmers were arrested for defying
the orders to leave their farms under the controversial land reform
program of the government, among those arrested was my father who
later died in the hands of the prison officials, during my last visit
to the prison he had told me that he had a sum of U.S$55,000,000.00 US
DOLLARS (FIFTY FIVE MILLION US DOLLARS) kept in a Security Company in
South Africa.

He also said that the security company does not know the content of
the safe box. He used my name to Deposit the money being his next of
kin, he had advised me to leave the country since it was no longer
safe for us being whites, he also advised that should he be killed
that I should seek a foreign partner in a country of my choice where I
will transfer this money and use it for investment purposes, Your
assistance is required in the following ways:

(1) To assist me to clear this fund from the security company
successfully.

(2) To serve as the guardian of this fund since I am a 17-year-old
girl.

I am willing to offer you 18% of the total sum as compensation for
your effort and input after the successful transfer of this fund to
your nominated account believe that this transaction would be
concluded within 14 days from the day you signify interest to assist
me, I await to hear from you as soon as possible in my email address:
hstewart@universal.pt

Thanks and God bless you for your anticipated cooperation.

HELEN STEWART.
