Another tale of woe forwarded to me by a reader. Usual tale of dastardly murder, missing millions and, oh yes, just needing my help to move the money. Don't fall for this scammer. He hasn't got millions and he certainly doesn't want your help. What he wants is your money. If you make the mistake of replying, the scammer will start asking you for money.

I know you will be surprised to read from me, but please consider this
letter as request from a family in dares need for your assistance.
Firstly, I must introduce myself, I am Mr. WILLIAM BUSO FROM ZIMBABWE, I am the first and only son of Mr. Anthony Buso. I am presently residing in South Africa. I got your contact from the South Africa Information Exchange (S.A.I.E) in Johannesburg and on behalf of my mother who is Widow Mrs. Angela Buso. I decided to solicit for your assistance to transfer the sum of US$21.5M (Twenty One Million Five Hundred Thousand United States Dollars) in your personal or company account.
Before my fathers death he was among the few black Zimbabwean rich farmers and he was poisoned by the agent of the ruling government Robert Mugabe for his alleged support and sympathy for the Zimbabwe opposition party controlled by the white minority. Before his death he had taken me to Johannesburg to deposit this money to security and finance company. This money was deposited in a box as a gemstone to avoid much demurrage from the Security Company. This money was earmark for purchase of new machinery and chemicals for the farms and establishes new farms in Lesotho and Swaziland. In this will he specially drew my attention to this sum US$21.5M (Twenty One Million Five Hundred Thousand United States Dollars) that he deposited in safe box of private security and finance company here
in Johannesburg, South Africa.
IN FACT MY FATHER SAID IN HIS WILL AND QUOTE:
My beloved son, I wish to draw your attention to this money, which I deposited in your name in a box with a security and finance company in Johannesburg, South Africa. In case of my absence on earth caused by death, you should solicit for a reliable foreign partner to assist you to transfer this money out of South Africa for investment purpose.
From the above, you will understand that the live of my family and I
depends on this money as much. I will be very grateful if you can assist us. We are now living in South Africa as Asylum seekers and financial laws of South Africa does not allow Asylum seeker certain right to such huge amount of money.
In view of this, I cannot invest this money in South Africa, hence I am
asking you to assist me to transfer this money out of South Africa for
investment purpose. For your efforts, I am prepared to offer you 25% of
the total fund. While 5% will be set aside for local and international
expenses and 70% will be kept by my family and me.
