Johannesburg,south africa


You may be surprise to receive this letter from me since you do not know me personally. I am MR.JOHN GEZI. the first son of MR. PETER GEZI, who was recently murdered in the land dispute in Zimbabwe. Before the death of my father, he had taken me to Johannesburg to deposit the sum of US$25Million {Twenty Five Million United States Dollars}, in one of the security companies, as if he foresaw the looming danger in Zimbabwe.

This money was deposited in a box as germ stones to avoid much demurrage from the Security Company. This amount was meant for the purchase of new machines and chemicals for the firm and establishment of a new farm in Swaziland. This land problem come when Zimbabwean president Mr. Robert Mugabe introduced a new Land Act reform which wholly affected the rich white farmers and some few black farmers. This resulted to the killing and mobaction by Zimbabwean war veterans and some lunatics in the society. In fact, a lot of people were killed because of this land reformed Act for which my father was one of the victims. It is again this back ground that, my family and I who are currently staying in South Africa decided to transfer my fathers money to a foreign country since the law of South Africa prohibits refugees open any bank account or to be involved in any financial transaction throughout the territorial zones of South Africa. As the eldest son of my father, I am saddled with the responsibility of seeking a genuine foreign account where this money could be transferred into without the knowledge of my government who is bent on taking everything. All I seek for is an honest businessman, whom I can entrust my future and that of my family, I must also let you know that this transaction is 100% risk free. This money I intend to use for investment growth in your country. I have two options for you, First you can choose to have certain percentage of the money for nominating your account for this transaction, Or you can go into partnership with me for the proper profitable investment of the money in your country. Which ever the option you want, feel free to notify me. I have also mapped out 5% of this money for all kinds of expenses we might incur in the process of this transaction. If you do not prefer being a partnership I am willing to give you 20% of the money while the remaining 75% will remain for me and my family. If you are capable and willing to assist me please contact me immediately with the above Tel,or this E-mail address with which I have sent you this massage. Finally, please treat this matter as urgent as possible, Iæm in dire need to leave this country soonest. Thanks for your mutual co-operation, I expect your soonest response.

Best Regards,


Dear Mr. Gezi:

I am very much interested in your proposal, but am a bit concerned over your having concealed the money as "germ stones." What type of germs are you speaking of? Aren't you concerned, with all the news about biological agents, that you'll arouse the suspicions of authorities? Finally, why didn't you disinfect the stones before putting them in the box? I am hopeful you can answer my questions satisfactorily because I am capable and willing to help you. I would prefer the option in which we would invest the money in my country, the Kingdom of Fredonia. As a representative of Arizona, which is one of Fredonia's six states, I am held in high regard by Groucho Marx, the kingdom's leader.

Hello,Mr.Brad.I received your email and I tried to
call you so we can have a better understanding of the situation,what I meant by Gem stones was that my father deposited the box containing this money and declared it to be Gem stones,the contents of this box is the money I told you about,this was done in this way so that the Security company will not know the contents of the box,you will arrange for a short trip of only 3 working days here to Johannesburg in order to open a non-resident account that will be used to transfer this money,I am not able to open the account here because I am an asylum seeker and it is only yourself as an overseas businessman that can arrive here,open the account and the money will be transferred from here to your Country,there is no risk whatsoever and I want to assure you that your comfort,well being,security and safety will be guaranteed for your 3 days stay here,if you confirm your date of arrival,then I will give you further details of the processes.

Thank you,Mr.Brad as I expect your reply as soon as possible.

Yours truly,



Dear Mr. Gezi:

It was a pleasure speaking with you today, but I still am somewhat concerned about whether you are talking about "germ stones" or "gem stones." Why would you label a box of money as "gem stones" if your goal was to avoid interest in the box? I am thinking that you actually did label the box "germ stones" to scare away people. But don't you undertand that tack might arouse the suspicion of authorities?

As for me, I would have labeled the box "dirty socks" to ensure nobody gets within ten feet of it. As a precaution, can you please re-label the box "dirty socks" or, if you prefer, "old fruit cakes?" Once you take care of this small request, I will plan the three-day trip to Johannesburg.

Dear Mr. Gezi:

Again it was an honor and unsurpassed pleasure to speak with you on the phone not once, but twice today, and I'm sure your long-distance carrier feels similarly blessed. We are becoming quite adroit at communicating, for now I can understand nearly two-thirds of what you are saying. Sorry you had to repeat your phone number so many times before I got it right. Well, maybe I didn't because I later tried calling and never got through.

What I must tell you is that my homeland, the Kingdom of Freedonia, is on the verge of war with our rival country, Sylvania. If war erupts before mid-March, I will have to postpone my trip because I serve as an officer in the militia. Sylvania also has a militia, but we are confident we'll prevail because General Electric is on our side. Our disagreement involves disputed land in Montana, which is valued for its supply of sane cows. Matters took a turn for the worse last week when Trentino, the ruler of Sylvania, called our president, Groucho Marx, an "upstart."

However, I am confident there will be a regime change in Sylvania, rather than war. That is because we have a clearly superior battle cry -- "Lights Out, Sylvania" -- a War Department led by Chico and his deputy Harpo, plus an enormous supply of PUN weaponry remaining from the 1933 "Duck Soup" conflict waged in Hollywood. Sylvania's only defense against PUNs is well-placed duct tape. However, our troops have been trained in the use of rapid-fire quips and barbs, and they know how to bob and weave in close combat. Sylvania soldiers may have all the duct tape in the world, but I guarantee they'll fall to the ground in stitches before getting one clear shot at our boys. That is why I believe my trip to Johannesburg will NOT be delayed, but I felt it necessary to inform you of all possibilities.

Lights Out, Sylvania!

Dear Mr. Gezi:

My problems with e-mail were attributed to a computer problem, which has been corrected. Thanks for the fax you sent on Feb.26, but unfortunately faxing is not a very confidential means of communication. About six or seven other members of the Freedonia militia read the fax before it finally found its way to me on March 4. Some thought the fax was a joke and one even folded it into a paper airplane. Actually it flies quite nicely, but from this point on, please communicate through e-mail ( so my messages are timely and confidential.

It is looking very likely that I'll be able to make the trip to South Africa somewhere near the end of next week. I could have made it sooner, but an innocent comment on Monday enraged Trentino, who is Sylvania's ambassador. Actually Trentino intended to end hostilities when he arrived at our palace. But when Mrs. Teasdale announced, "The ambassador is on a friendly visit - he's had a change of heart," I responded: "A lot of good that'll do him. He's still got the same face." A furious Trentino immediately declared war.

Already, Sylvania's forces are retreating, no match for our PUN weaponry. We've also hired the Monty Python research team, which has just developed the world's most devastating quip, a jape so lethal it must be delivered in pieces by at least two of our soldiers, who themselves would expire if it were not for earplugs. The end appears very near for Sylvania, and thank goodness for that - we rented the battleground for only a week.

Hopefully all matters concerning the bank officials, security company and the consignment will be ready to be finalized by March 13, for that is when I am planning my arrival. How much money should I bring with me to cover all expenses?

All the best,

Brad Christensen


Dear Mr. Gezi:

The good news is that I have scheduled my flight, but I have had to delay my departure until Friday, March 14, due to a request from President Groucho Marx. To celebrate our stunning victory in the territory of Montana, a Parade of Sane Cows has been scheduled for Thursday through the streets of the conquered Sylvania. My president has asked me to represent him on the lead cow.

That means I will be arriving in Johannesburg on Saturday, March 15, at 3:30 p.m., rather than earlier in the week. My flight is Delta Airlines Flight 7794, operated by South African Airlines. I will be flying back to Freedonia on Thursday, March 20. Mr. Gezi, please be sure to revise those hotel reservations you made for me at the City Lodge at Kempon Park.

You mentioned on the phone that I will need to bring at least $8,000 with me. That is no problem - I already have withdrawn exactly $8,500 in Freedonia Shekels, which I trust will be sufficient even with our currently deflated rate of exchange. See you on Saturday. All the best,

Brad Christensen
