I am contacting you with the greatest delight and personal respect. I am Mrs. Rosemary Egobia, the wife of late Dr. (chief) Daniel Egobia, who was murdered last year of June by the forces loyal to president
Robert Mugabe due to their support in acquiring his land and property during the crisis in Zimbabwe last year, which continued and led to the lost of several lives of foreign (white) farmers. For a clearer picture of my story please log on to
http://www.zimbabwesituation.com/may4_2002.html.

President Robert Mugabe has started destruction of houses that belongs to people opposing the Brutal Government in power President Robert Mugabe and there supporters. The demolition has left more than
9000,000.00( Nine hundred thousand) Zimbabweans homeless and destitute affected more than 2.4 million people there is massive violation of human right that

You may need to know how this fund originated. The sum was inherited from my late husband who was assassinated by Robert Mugabe's aides in view of acquiring his land and property. I got to know of this fund when our family lawyer, approached me few months ago with some documents that my late husband had filed with him in the file, I realized that my late husband (blessed memory) has written a "will" which he specifically pointed my attention and I quote.

My darling wife, I wish to draw your attention to the sum of US$11,500.000.00 (Eleven million five hundred thousand united states dollars)which I deposited with a security company in South Africa. All documents
concerning the fund is filed with our family lawyer and you can make lay claim to the fund in case of my absence on earth only by death. I made an agreement with the Security Company that my foreign partner will stand as a beneficiary to lay claim of the money. The beneficiary will come forward to make claim of the consignment.

Dr. (chief) Daniel Egobia, my late husband advised me through my lawyer that incase if he dies that I should look for a foreigner who will stand as the beneficiary of the fund so that the fund will be transfer to his or her account for partnership investment. From the above you can understand that my future especially that of my son depends strongly on
this money. I will like you to assist us in transferring this money into your account for investment.

You can contact my son James Egobia with his e-mail address: egobiajames@hotmail.com for more details or you can call him on +27-83-990-3569, as he is residing in South Africa as an asylum seeker he is
arranging with some bankers in South Africa who will assist in this transfer. For your assistance in this regard, it will interest you to know that we will be willing to come to terms with you regarding your reward for helping us actualize this matter. It is equally important to state here that considering the nature of this matter, we will required that

Sus Art World email still floating around. I got the message today, April 17, 2006. SCAM!! BEWARE!!


2006-04-17 17:40:31 - Phillip Petros
Hello to eyeoman:

Call your local FBI office and ask for the Task Force on Internet Fraud and Abuse.

If there is a corporate name from which the Money order is drawn from call them to confirm the validity of the money orders.

However I can tell you right now that if you received emails like we have received emails that are posted on this site, I can assure you that the money orders are fake.

If you apply to one of these companies and agree to their terms then you are asking for trouble. All they want to do is to rip you off. All they want is your personal to drain you of your hard earned money that you worked so hard to get.

They look for us on the job boards and a person who is not in the know and doesn't know to research whehter or not an email for employment like those posted on this site is real will get lured into their whirlpool of trouble.

Please protect yourself and don't answer them. Please don't be so foolish as to supply them with all your personal information. By coming to this site we give our stories not to follow up with these scams.

So word to the wise: If it sounds to good to be true then it is a scam, a fraud, a fake and it's all a pipe dream.

About the job:


We have sales representatives all over the world to distribute our products.You know, that it's not easy to start a business in a new market (being the US). There are hundreds of competitors, close direct contacts between suppliers and customers and otherdifficulties, which impede our sales promotion.We have decided to deliver the products upfront, it's very risky but it should push up sales on 25 percent.Thus we need to get payments for our products as soon as it possible. Unfortunately we are unable to open Bank Accounts in the United US without first registering the company name. Presently with the amount of Orders we have, we cannot put them on hold. For fear of loosing the customers out rightly. Secondly we cannot cash these payments from the US soon enough, as international Checks take about 14 working days for cash to be made available.We lose about 75,000 USD of net income each month because we have money transfer delays*


Your task is to coordinate payments from customers and help us with the payment process.You are not involved in any sales. Our makes direct contact for salesof products. Once orders are received and sorted we deliver the product to a customer (usually through FEDEX).The customer receives and checks the products.

I received two money by ups for $2500.00 - been trying to find out more information to so they can be investigated?


2006-04-17 12:20:55 - Semaj
I received a Cashier's Check for $9,800 issued by The Bank of America. I CALLED THE BANK AND THE NUMBER GIVEN FOR CASHIER'S CHECKS WAS WRONG. ALWAYS CHECK THE VALIDITY OF ANY CHECKS OR MONEY ORDERS BEFORE CASHING.
I WAS CONTACTED BY SUSAN BRYANT/HARRISON AT SUS ART WORLD IN THE UK TO BE A REP HERE IN THE U.S. LOOKS LIKE ANOTHER SCAM TO ME. THE CHECK CAME FROM GHANA WITHOUT A RETURN ADDRESS ON IT. BE CAREFUL!


2006-04-17 10:57:08 -
Please people, STOP putting those fraudulent money orders in your bank accounts. It's going to cost you $20 to $35 on each one for a returned check fee. Some banks may even put YOU in JAIL for trying to cash them.

With any of these probable frauds, call up the bank listed or in the case of Wal*Mart Financial money orders, call Wal Mart. They can tell you by the numbers on the check if they are valid. Most likely they will tell you it's NOT A VALID CHECK.

A Wells Fargo guy told me that is can take 6 weeks for a bad money order to finally clear as not valid. The Wells Fargo phone center is getting hundreds of calls per month on these fraudulent money orders.
