I am John Chiluba, the son to the former Zambian President (President Fredrick Chiluba). My father, President Fredrick Chiluba is presently on trial, accused of theft of millions of US dollars. Let me get straight to the point, due to the trial an investigation is also in progress to find my entire father's and all his aides' estates in Dakar Senegal. As such we need to sign all our funds and estates over to another person/company. Please take time to read more about the trial and our predicaments by visiting these sites.

If you are interested we would advice you further when you get back to us. Remember that honesty is the success of what we are about to embank on with you and trust is our watchword all through this process.

It's hard to believe that the old Nigerian 419 scam keeps popping up with new disguises.

I guess it's like spam; even if 99.9% of web users ignore or block it, that still leaves enough innocents to make it worthwhile.
