My Junk Email Exposed

The idea of this series is to show the rubbish that gets sent too my email account daily. And thats it really. Hopefully some comment and humour can be derived from it.

#1 A Friend In Need?

Dear Friend,
I am wife of sacked deputy president of south africa, jacob zuma. It is out of desperation that i am sending you this mail. my husband and i need your help in fronting for us as owner of funds that are his which might come under investigation soon if the fund's ownership is not changed soonest. as my husband's finances are increasingly becoming the source of investigation by our distractors. the source of these funds which my husband's earnings would not validate, will further sink him into the cesspool dug by our enemies.

It is because of the dire strait we find ourselves that we resolved to reach you and ask for your assistance in this matter. we are averse to letting those we know here into this deal because we are no longer sure of who our friends are. you will be rewarded if you choose to help us in partnership in this deal. I will be expecting to hear from you via my personal email account( and will disclose further detail to you upon your response. do well not to disclose the content of this mail to anyone.

Best Regards,
Lindiwe Zuma

Comment : The wife of the sacked deputy president of South Africa, I didnt know I had friends in such high places. Jacob Zuma is the current president of the governing party ANC. He admits to being a polygamist and has been married 4 times. Though I cant see Lindiwe listed anywhere as his wife.

He is being investigated by the National Prosecuting Authority for corruption surrounding an arms deal, including tax evasion, money laundering, and racketeering. And Lindiwe wants me to front ownership of his funds. Well I won't be emailing her just yet...
