This phishing attempt comes as a business proposal and is a complete scam, they couldn’t even get the wording right! It’s included below:
My name is Johnson Ndiovu, the eldest son of mr. akuga ndiovu of zimbabwe. it mighit be a surprise to you, where i got your contact address. i got it from international business directory. during the current crisis against the farmers of zimbabwe by the supporters of our president robert mugabe to claim all the white owned farmers in our country, he ordered all white farmers to surrender their farms to his party members and their followrs.
My father was one of the best farmers in the country and knowing that he did not support the president political ideology, the president’s supporters invaded my father’s farm and burnt down everything, shot him and as a result of the wounds sustaed, he became sick and died after two days.
After his death, my mother and i together with my younger brother decided to move out of zimbabwe for the sfety of our lives to south africa, where i, Johnson Ndiovu, later move to holland.
But before my father died, he wrote a will, which reads: my belovrd son, i wish to draw your attention to the sum of us$12.5 (milliom dollars) which i deposited with a security company in the netherlands in case i want to invest the money, i deposited the money in a security company with your name (johnson ndiovu) and it can be claim by me alone with the deposit code, my mother has the entire document. to take good care of my mother and brother.
From the above, you will understand that the lives of my family depend on this money. as such, I, Johnson Ndiovu, will be very grateful if you can assist us. i am now living in holland as political asylum and the financia laws of holland do not allow asylum seekers certain finacial rights to such huge amount of money.
In view of this, i cannot invest this money in holland hence i am seeking for your assistance to transfer this money out of holland for investment purpose. for your efforts, i am prepered to offer you 20% of the total sum, 10% for expeses that may be incurred in the course of this transction, while 70% will be kept for my family and i.
Finally, modalities on how the transfer will be done will conveyed to you once we establish trust and confidence between ourslves. looking forward to your urgent reply.
All the best,
(for the family)
