Rip Deal Refugee Scam

Rip-Deal in South Africa-Scammer poisoned by ZANU-PF in Zimbabwe

The scammers leave nothing out, neither one nor the other.

Years after Robert Mugabe died and ZANU-PF now realises the mistakes of the past, scammers from South Africa are trying an adventurous story, a murder as a springboard for their hare-brained story.

The question, “why don’t you go to the transport company and collect your cash from the security company yourself”, is simply ignored.

For good reason, they want to lure the victim to Johannesburg to rob her there. It is a bit reminiscent of the death of the jeweller Heisler in South Africa.

This murder, too, is still unsolved.

No motive has been found and neither has the body.

This kind of scam is a rip-off and very dangerous. Do not answer. Do not send any documents, they would be used for other crimes. The story is the overture to brutal murder and robbery. Do not send money for notaries, they do not exist. The contact with our reader, who sent us these mails, broke off. That is how it should be with you too. No contact, move this and similar mails to the rubbish bin.

Dear Friend,

I am LUCIA MAKAZHU, a partner to late Mr. AMOS MIDZI, Zimbabwean former ambassador to the USA, former minister of energy and mining, who was a member of the ZANU-PF party before his expulsion in 2015 on allegations of fanning factionalism. He was also a cabinet minister and was alleged to be aligned to a faction led by former vice president JOICE MUJURU and that led to his death on the 09 June 2015 through poisoning allegedly by Robert Mugabe led ZANU-PF party.

Due to the fact that I was not legally married to him, his wife ALICE MIDZI (who was appointed the executor of his estate) and her children sidelined me and my daughter from his estate. I tried fighting them legally in Zimbabwe and when it became life threatening, I was advised to let go.

Just recently, I received a notification from an attorney in South Africa that Mr. AMOS MIDZI moved US$15 Million United States Dollars to South Africa intended for the establishment of a new farm in South Africa. The fund was deposited in a private security & finance company in the name of my daughter Ms. CHIDO MAKAZHU as the beneficiary. On getting this information, I sent my brother Mr. JULIUS AUGUSTINE MAKAZHU to accompany my daughter to South Africa to meet with the attorney who had already handed over the documents showing that Mr. AMOS MIDZI, the father of my daughter Ms. CHIDO MAKAZHU left an inheritance for her in South Africa after all, this was concealed from his family. Due to the situation of things I cannot do much or go anywhere from where I am presently.

Would you be interested to assist my brother in moving this money out from South Africa since his status as asylum seeker (Refugee) does not allow the transfer of the funds in his name, the family will offer you 30% of the total amount, 1% will be mapped out to balance any expenses incurred, while 69% will be for my family and will be invested in your country under your management. Due to my ill-health and age, I would suggest you to please contact my brother in Johannesburg, South Africa on the below Email Address for details and procedure.

Please contact my brother Mr. JULIUS AUGUSTINE MAKAZHU on email:
Telephone number: + 27-789139839

I look forward to your positive reply.

For purposes of clarity, I would like to give you a fresh explanation on
the purposes of this request. For your information again, we have a
family money which is secured in a private security company here in
South Africa; due to our political status here as asylum seekers, the
laws here do not give us the right to open an account or even undertake
any business enterprise.

This is why we want to use a foreign partner to get this money out and
then transfer to your account overseas. After that, we will come over to
your country for the sharing and where I hope to reside and also invest
our own part of the money with your direction.

The funds are presently deposited in a private Security Company here in
South Africa and we need to retrieve the funds first before we talk
about transferring to your overseas account. This is the first step
which shall be followed by other steps.

The modalities for the completion of the business is also simple:

1.You will be required to come to South Africa during the final stages
when we will collect the money from the security company.

2.You will open an account in a Commercial bank here where we will
deposit the money before instructing the bank to transfer to your
account abroad.

3.We will sign an investment agreement, before joining you to your
country for the sharing according to our agreed percentages.

All these processes will not take more than 10 days to be completed
because everything had been done to ensure a hitch free transaction.All
I want you to do is to furnish me with your full details such as name
and address, telephone and fax numbers and your profile. These
information will be sent to a lawyer who will use them to start the
process of the changing of the ownership of the consignment(Fund) to
your name and the other necessary arrangements.

Please, I want you to reply immediately so that we will start processing
the release of the fund in your name, without any further delay. God
bless you.

 Good Afternoon and how are you? Thank you for your urgent respond. In your e-mail, you didn’t let us to know if you will be able to come to South Africa in person to sign the change of the beneficiary Right to the fund in your name and also to do some of the things that will be required of you to do here, example, opening of the bank account which must be in your name here which is where the fund will be deposited for onward transfer into your nominated bank account in your Country. But if you can not be able to come in person, then the service of an attorney will be secured to represent all your interest till the fund gets into your nominated bank account in your Country. I hope you read this my last e-mail which i sent to you. I made everything very clear and i want you to understand that this fund is the only future of my entire family now and i would want you to know that all the process that will be taken will be very legal.  I hope to read from you to know if you can be able to come here in South Africa or should we acquire the service of an attorney. Thank you and God bless you.

 Best Regards,Mr.Julius Augustine Makazhu

Thank you for your reply.

At the moment we need to make sure that we have a meeting with the Security company where the consignment is being kept and the beneficiary right to your name has to be prepared before your arrival so that you will not spend so much time here in South Africa. To start the process, you need to immediately send through attachment a copy of your identity , your full address ,telephone number and your profession. As soon as we receive this information, we shall commence the process and tell you exactly when you will be coming for the conclusion of the project. I await your urgent co-operation. God bless you. 

Best Regards,Mr.Julius Augustine Makazhu
