Another Scam: from Mrs. Rose E. Lubisi

Good Day
I know how surprise this letter will come to you, But i would advice that you consider it
as a request from a family in dare need of assistance. I am Mrs. ROSE E.LUBISI the wife of Mr. DAVID LUBISI of Harare in Zimbabwe. Your contact information came to me from your country's trade journal during my search for a reliable and God fearing person that can assist me and my only son, and I quite believe on my own that you can be of great help in this regard even if i am not acquainted to you before. 
The business involves the transfer of NINETHEEN MILLION FIVE HUNDRED THOUSAND U.S. DOLLARS ONLY (US$19,500,000.00) into your account for safekeeping. This fund is inherited from my late husband who was assassinated by the president's (ROBERT MUGABE) aides in view of taking his lands and property during the crisis which lead to the killing and banishing of foreign (white) farmers. After the death of my husband (A day I can never forget) I was approached by our family lawyer who told me that my late husband had filed a document with him which stipulates his "WILL"..In the "WILL" he specifically pointed and I quote,

Darling, I wish to draw your attention to the sum of NINETHEEN MILLION FIVE HUNDRED THOUSAND U.S. Dollars (U.S$19.5M) which I deposited with a Security Company in Johannesburg South Africa with all the documents filed by our lawyer.
