DEAR FRIEND, I am MR. ANGUS WEMBA, the only son of late MR. GUMARU WEMBA who was murdered in a land dispute in ZIMBABWE. My late father was among the few Zimbabwean rich black farmers murdered in cold blood by the agent of the ruling government of President ROBERT MUGABE for his alleged support and sympathy for Zimbabwean opposition party. Before the death of my father, he deposited the sum of Ten Million US Dollars ($10M) with a safe keeping company in Thailand when he went to purchase farm machineries, as if he foresaw the looming danger in Zimbabwe. The money was packaged in a box and deposited as family valuables to avoid seizure by the security organization. This money was for the purchase of new machinery and chemicals for the farms. I am currently staying in Thailand as a refugee asylum seeker, I have decided to transfer this money to your country where we can invest it. This transaction is 100% risk free.So if you are willing to assist me, I will give you 20% of the total money. Endeavor to contact me through the below email address. I also need your private telephone number for quick communication. Please this transaction is highly confidential. Expect your reply soonest. Best regards. MR. ANGUS WEMBA. Email: email@example.com
