Dear Friend, Greetings to you! I am contacting you with regards to a possible partnership in any viable project underway. I am Dr. Silas D. Hungwe the chairman of the Farmers Association of Zimbabwe. As a recap, this Association consists of white and coloured farmers that grows Tobacco, Maize, Cotton, Soybean and Rice in very large quantities and controls vast expanses of land for cultivation and farming purposes all over Zimbabwe. As you may be aware, in the recent times the Government of Zimbabwe under the leadership of Robert Mugabe has been forcefully nationalizing and exciting our members from their various farm holds and giving same out to political cronies. However, before the Government started their sinister and ill-advised vendetta against our members, our friends in government had tipped us off and we took proactive measures to protect our investments and money. With the assistance of friendly countries through their embassies we have been able to move a whole lot of cash running into Two Hundred and Fourthy-Five Million United States Dollars (US$245,000,000.00) through Diplomatic Bags into Madrid, Spain for safe keeping. Now, our members have been able to acquire up to 3.6 Million Hectares of land in Costa Rica, South America and Thailand to continue our business of large scale farming. However, our consultants informed us that it will take about 6 Years to get the lands ready for cultivation. That means that the funds in bank vault in Madrid will remain idle for the equivalent period. Hence we have decided to invest such funds for about 5 years pending when they are needed. We are willing to invest the funds in any good and viable business or projects underway for that period of time as long as you have a very good business ideas and plans. If this letter is agreeable and for any question, please do not hesitate to contact me for further information. Thanks for your anticipated cooperation. Dr. Silas D. Hungwe
