Protect Yourself and Report the Latest Frauds, Scams, Spams, Fakes, Identify Theft Hacks and Hoaxes
Have you received an email from "Jude Miller", who says "You may be surprised to recieve this letter from me since you do not know me personally"? And what follows is a convoluted sob story of one misery after another, along with a healthy dose of gibberish, spelling errors, terrible gram, syntax and punctuation, not exactly befitting an extremely wealthy person. And now, poor bereaved "Jude Miller", needs YOUR help to make arrangements and come to Johannesburg-South Africa,so that you can open a non-resident account which you will aid us in transferring the money into any account which you will nominate overseas. Odd that they'd pick a total stranger, in a foreign country to trust their money to, don't you think?
Of course, it is a scam. Don't reply to it. But it is an entertaining read. This scammer is apparently a real moron. Note the money deposited in a box as "germ stones", numerous misspellings and gibberish speak.

Off Loius Botha Str,
Republic Of South Africa.
You may be surprised to recieve this letter from me since you do not know me personally, the purpose of my introduction is that, I am Mr.Jude Miller. the first son of Robert Miller who was recently murdered in the land dispute in Zimbabwe. I got your contact through network online
hence decided to write you,to seek for your coperation,assistance and understanding. Before the death of my father, he had taken me to Johannesburg to deposit the sum of US$25M (twenty five Million United States Dollars), in one of the private security companies, as if he foresaw the looming danger in Zimbabwe. This money was deposited in a box as germ stones and family antiques to avoid much demurrage from the security company.
This amount was meant for the purchase of new machines and chemicals for the farms and establishment of new farm in Swaziland.This land problem came when Zimbabwean President
Mr.Robert Mugabe introduce a new Land Act reform which wholly affected the rich white farmers and some few blacks farmers. And this resulted to the killing and mob action by Zimbabwean war
veterans and some lunatics in the society.
Infact,a lot of people were killed because of this land reformed Act for which my father was one of the victim. It is against this background that, I and my family who are currently staying in South Africa decided to transfer my father's money to foreign account since the law of South Africa prohibits a refugee (asylum seeker) to open any bank account or to be involved in any financial
transaction throughout the territorial zone of South Africa.
As the eldest son of my father,I am saddle with the responsibility of seeking for a genuine foreign account where this money could be lodged/ transferred without the knowledge of my government who are bent on taking everything we have got. The South African government seems to be playing along with them.I am faced with the dilemma of investing this amount of money in South Africa for fear of going through the same experience in future since both countries have similar political history.Moreover,the South African Foreign Exchange Policy does not allow such
investments for political refugees.As a business man,who I have to entrust my future since both my future and of my family are in his hands,I must let you know that this transaction is risk free.If you accept to assist me and my family all I want you to do for me is to make arrangements and come to Johannesburg-South Africa,so that you can open a non-resident account which you will aid us
in transferring the money into any account which you will nominate overseas.
This money we intended to use for investment. I have two options for you, firstly you can choose to have certain percentage of the money for nominating your account for this transaction.Or you can go into partnership with us for proper profitable investment of the money in your country either in your area of expertriate or according to your directives. Whichever the options you want, feel free to notify me we have also mapped out 5% of this money for all kinds of expenses we mighty incurred in the process of this transaction.If you do not prefer partnership I am willing to give you 15% of the money while the remaining 80% will be for my family's investment in your country.
Contact me with the above Telephone number+27834334507 while I implore you to maintain the absolute secrecy required in this transaction. Best regards while hoping in recieving your confirmention soonest for the speedy takeoff of this project.
(For My Family).
