new scam letter or not

here's how it goes seems like they moved to zimbabwe instead

Dear Friend

Iam Mr. Larry Smith son of late Sir John Smith, the
renowned Zimbabwean, wine and catle farmer. I know it
might surprise you how I got your contact. I got it
courtesy of U.A.E.Yellow Business Pages.
During the war waged against farmers in Zimbabwe by the
supporters and cohorts of President Robert Mugabe to claim
all the white owned farms in our country, my late Father's
farms were among those targeted by the ZANU-PFarmed
group.In the cause of revolution in Zimbabwe, the ZANU
farmed group attacked and invaded my Father's farms,
burned and destroyed his farm and eventually killed him.

After my father's death last year, I managed to escape to
South Africa because my life was threatened and Zimbabwe
was no longer safe for me. I escaped safely into South
Africa with my father's life- time fortune of US$25Million
[Twenty Five Million United> States Dollars] in cash and
other important documents of property title and other
valuables as he instructed before his death.

The money and the valueables were concealed and secured
in one Treasure Box and was transported through Diplomatic
means. The Box is currently safely secured in the vaults
of a private security firm in South Africa.
Presently, am residing temporarily in South Africa pending
the outcome of an appeal filed on my behalf by my attorney
to the South African Ministry of Internal Affairs to grant
me a political assylum.

I am in a dilemma of how to move this money safely out of
the security deposit company for investments.Moreover, due
to the government's stringent monetary
policies/regulations and the sensitive and volatile
political situation, it would be most dangerous to attempt
investment here, as such an attempt will jeopardise my

In recognition of your personal Executive Power and the
investment opportunities that abound in your country, I
solicit for your assistance in moving this money out of
South Africa.I will also like to use this money for
investment in your country.

You will guard all my future investments in your country
and it will be operated in a partnership level. You will
be getting 20% of the investment capital moved to your
country as your share for your assistance, The balance
will be plunged into investment projects Upon receipt of
your indication of interest to go into co-operation with
me, we will open up discussions on the best ways to
reclaim the consignment containing the cash and other
valueables and ways to invest in your country.Reply me at
[email protected]

Waiting for your urgent reply.

Yours faithfully,
Larry Smith

I will go through a short period of time where I will have about a dozen long lost close family members that I never heard of and all left me $millions. When I get those letters and they have a good e-mail link, I forward ALL the spam I get from my real e-mail and even my yahoo account. It is usually about 1000 letters sent to their inbox. (too much time on my hands?)

I think it is real. After all he is the son of the renowned catle (sp?) farmer Sir John Smith. I don't think someone with credentials like that would lie. Besides, the most you can lose is 20%. Go for it and be sure to let us know how you make out.
