FROM Mr. william morgan SOUTH AFRICA phone:27835537507 Reply to Dear Sir/Madam, I know you will be surprised to read from me, but please consider this letter as request from a family in dare need of your assistance. Firstly, I must introduce myself which you have known Mr. William Morgan from Zimbabwe, I am the first and the only son of Mr. Charles Morgan, I am presently residing in South Africa. On behalf of my Mother who is a widow Mrs.Grace Morgan. I decided to solicit for your assistance to transfer the sum of US$18M (Eighteen Million United States Dollars) in your personal or company account. Before my father's death he was among the few Black farmers in Zimbabwe who was poisoned by the agents of the ruling government of President Robert Mugabe for his alleged support and sympathy for Zimbabwe opposition party controlled by the White Zimbabweans. For more information,please view these sites. http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/africa/1063785.stm http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/africa/2414713.stm Before his death, he had taken me to South Africa to deposit this money in a Security and Finance Company. This money was deposited in a box as a gemstone to avoid much demurrage from the Security Company. It was also earmarked for the purchase of new machinery and chemicals for the farms and to establish new farms in Lesotho,Senegal and Liberia. In his WILL he specially drew my attention to this sum of US$18Million (Eighteen Million United States Dollars) that he deposited in a safe box in a private Security and Finance Company here in South Africa.
I am prepared to offer you 25% of the total fund, while 5% will be set aside for local and international expenses and 70% will be kept by my family and me. I assure you that this business is 100% risk free because our lawyer will provide all the necessary documents to back it up. Finally, modalities on how the transfer will be done will be conveyed to you once we establish trust and confidence between ourselves. Kindly get back to me on my private e-mail address . Best Regards Mr. william morgan
