Kuhbeka Johanness - widow of dispossessed Zimbabwe farmer (yeah right)
Sabri - from Turkey - but not a turkey! (last name omitted)

Kuhbeka Johanness


My name is KUHBEKA JOHANNESS, the wife of Mr. INDLOVU JOHANNESS from Zimbabwe. This might be a surprise to you about where I got your contact address. I got your address when i was during a search in the internet AND COMPANIES profiles to find a liable person who will assist our family in this TRANSACTION. During the current war against the farmers in Zimbabwe from the supports of our President Robert Mugabe to claim all the white-owned farms to his party members and his followers, he ordered all THE white farmers to surrender all THEIR farms to his party members and his followers. My Husband is One of the best farmers in our country and because he did not support Mugabes ideas,Mugabes supports invaded my husband's farm and burnt everything in the farm, killing my husband and made away with a lot of items in my husband's farm.Before his death, my husband had deposited with the Security Company in Johannesburg, South Africa the sum of US$20 MILLION(TWENTY MILLION UNITED STATES DOLLARS).

After the death of my husband, we decided to move to the Republic of South Africa where he had deposited the money in the Security Company asvaluables. So I decided to contact overseas firm and companies that will assist me to move this money out of South Africa because as asylum seekers we are not allowed to operate any Bank Account within South Africa. We have agreed to offer you 25% of the total sum for your assistance,5% will be mapped out for any expenses that may be incurred in the course of this transaction while 70% will be for me and my family to invest in your country. All I want you to do is to furnish me with your entire personal phone and fax numbers for easy communication on my e-mail address above.
Note that this transaction is 100% Risk free and absolutely confidential.
Thanks and God bless.
Best Regards

[Your basic Son or Widow of Dispossessed Zimbabwe Farmer letter. But you knew that.]


I have got your e-mail.
For the Turkish government regulations, the transactions more than 50.000 USD per account is not allowed. On the other hand to be kept in an account of yourself, I can arrange 4 people so that makes 200.000 USD can be kept in your name. If you are interested and serious, we can invest this money to make production investments inside Turkey that will be %100 confidential with the regulations.
Establishing a company can be the first step.
Please write if you are interested. /Best regards

Furthermore, we went to the security company this morning to settle our outstanding charges with them, we had a brief meeting with the chief security officer and we requested from him if the security company can move our consignment to your country Turkey, fortunately, he told us that they don't have an agent or affiliated branch in your country, rather, he gave us the list of countries where their branches and agents are, he explained to us that it is very easy for the security company to move our consignment through their diplomatic courier services to any of their affiliated branch in Europe or Asia if we are ready to pay the freight cost of our consignment, he told us that they have agents and affiliated branches in the following Countries :- 1. Malaysia, 2. Greece, we asked him to give us some few days to decide on which country we can choose, Please, there is no time to waste at this moment, we prefer it easy and better for our consignment to be moved to Greece or Malaysia, please we need an urgent answer from you as to enable us go back to the security company and give them immediate notice about the country we want our consignment to be delivered.
According to the chief security officer, a change of ownership will be made when we decide which country we are choosing, he told us that this change of ownership of the consignment will enable the receiving agent or branch to deliver the consignment to you without any hesitation, he explained that the ownership of the consignment will be changed to your name as you will assist us to receive the consignment over there in Greece or Malaysia, we have discussed this matter with our financial adviser and he is much eager and ready to fly down to Malaysia or Greece in assisting you to receive our consignment, then from there, you will arrange with him on his arrival on how to safe guard and deposit these funds in a bank, then he will fly back, while we arrange and fly down to meet you for our settlement and investment.

I am willing to do some business for you in Turkey and I take it serious.
The relations between the Greece Government and Turkish Government are not so good.
It can create problems with two companies.
If it will be the process you can do it over Maleysia.
In any case we have a trouble, if more then 50.000 USD transfer per person is realised.
(Sorry for my repeating but I want to be secure ,and everything must be %100 confidential.)
I am always ready to meet you in Turkey in any of the Hotels, we can talk the rest of the investment that we will do.Afterwards a company established, we can buy areas,houses and flats with the name of the company. Thats %100 confidential.
We can talk the rst of the business afterwards
Hope to hear from you soon.

Dear Mrs.Kuhbeka Johanness;
Thanks for your wishes, I am married for 3,5 years and effording to follow an honourfull life.So my wifeis happy with your communications because she told me that she is happy that I have the first step to realise my business dreams in life.
I am really sorry for your husband who is unfortunatelly killed.I hope you covered it.
I hope all the family is OKEY and has a good way of living from the deepness of my heart.
Meeting at Dubai can be a good idea but we must obtain the time and provide the flight details and tickets.Do not understand me wrong but this project is still an utophia and it is not possible for me to buy the tickets by myself.
I look it as start costs for our company.We must think that is a kind of expense financially.
So I will be waiting for your information on the identifcation documents, and will send you the bank account numbers for the consignment afterwards.
Every step I go ahead must be in a manner that covers principles and must be logical, also worthy of doing that.
Thanks very much and take care.

I hope everything is fine with you and your family.

I also speak with my bookkeeper consultant to do everything everything official and with no riskAnyway, I am doing the business plans of the projects and after my meeting in Turkey with your finance adviser we will clearify everything.

I have spoken also with my consulter that we will carry no risk if we transfer 000 USD to myaccount as you wrote in your mailbecause the regulations are a little changed in Turkey because we are a country that needs investments from abroad and transferring is let free by the government.
But if you do not trust me for the first time, you can send 00 USD and after the company establishment you can transfer the rest.
I am open with that point.The transfer to the company can be unlimited!
On the other hand ,you agreed to give %5 to my two frends and I make them believe about the safety of this money, you can find their accounts below.

There is a name IVAN SCHOEMAN at the end and the telephone :0027.260.8781
Fax :0027.11.507.6687
I called the man and it is adirect line.The man says me that there is no rist to transfer Money to TR and he does it very often just needs to pay affical fee of 2.550 USD to the Money GRAM.
The mail comes from foreign_remittance_department@amalgametedbanksa.com and the absa bank mail adres is name+surname first capital @absa.co.za.

Dear Mr.Johanness ;
I will fill in the form, no problem.

But to send you 2.550,20 USD is not so easy because I do not have this money, If you have told me before I could have arranged that.So I must search it.

So also what happens if I send the money and the bank does not transfer?Please explain to me, this amount of money and thats a real risk for me.

I will try to find it but maybe not today ,I will do my best.

Dear Mr.Johanness ;

thats very clear that I can not find this money,and therefore I have the following questions to you to ben clearfied;

The transaction adress that comes from the ABSA bank that it seems is ;
But the internet adress of the bank is in the official website (Name+First letter of surname@absa.co.za)
In this case I trust you but I do not trust this e-mail adress.
Also the telephone numbers and the fax numbers that wr_tten on the top of the papers are not corresponding to the bank telephone and fax numbers.
This is a document I can NOT trust.
I want to trust you but please make me believe in you with some arguments.
I have called yesterday my uncle who is the President of xxxxxx bank in Turkey and told the story as one of my friends' is in my situation.
He told me that for the last 6 months people from your region require some money with western UNION or Money Gram to go out of Zimbabwe or South africa because of the dictatic behaviours of MUGABE.I do not approve the situation there but please know I am not a rich guy to help you.
I can help you with the case if your story is really correct and if you want to come to TR with your money.I can not efford to help you with 2.500 USD.

Please clearify :
1st RULE :Who sends me this bank papers, make them to be sent by a mail adress( @absa.co.za)
2nd advise :Please require this money from your adviser, and the 2.500 USD I can send back the same day I receive 500.000 USD, with Money Gram, I promise for that.
3rd advise :I am not a rich man and can not find this noney (even I believe in you) so pls try to borrow and I send it by Money Gram on the same day I take the money.

This is the limit of my help, and after this mail if you cut the conversation I can understand you because I have read many articles on how Mugabe behaves you there.I pray god for you that you can get out from there in the nearest time.

If your story is right and really have money and want to come TR, I promise again that I help you in Turkey but please do not require money from me, just find it from some friends and surely I sendd it back after thats in my account.
Best regards and GOD BLESS you and Zimbabwe
