Dear: Sir/ Madam,=20

I know you will be surprised to receive this proposal. Actually I got your =
contact address from the Internet here in South Africa when I was making an=
 intensive research for my investment in your country then I decided to con=
tact you directly. First, I must introduce myself. My name is Mrs. Maria S =
Osborne, the Wife of Mr. John S Osborne of Zimbabwe.=20
=C2=A0
During the current crisis against the farmers of Zimbabwe by the supporters=
 of our President Robert Mugabe to claim all the white owned farms in our c=
ountry, he ordered all the white and rich black farmers to surrender their =
farms to his party members and their follower. My husband was one of the be=
st farmers in the country and a major financier/sponsor of the opposition p=
arty [Movement for Democratic Change MDC, and knowing that my husband did n=
ot support the president Political ideology, the president's supporters inv=
aded my husband's farm, kill him and took over it.=20
=C2=A0
After the death of my husband, my sons and I decided to move out of Zimbabw=
e for the safety of our lives. Before the death of my husband he deposited =
(USD$7Million) we get from the auctioning of our estates, farms and other b=
usinesses belonging to our family. The funds are presently being kept away =
in security Company firm based here in Johannesburg South Africa. I am look=
ing for any reliable person overseas who is willing to help me and my two s=
ons Prince and David to transfer this money out from South Africa and use i=
t for investment in his/her country because we are asylum seeker here in So=
uth Africa and we can not open a non-resident account through which this fu=
nd will be channeled out to nominated overseas account.=20
=C2=A0
If my proposition is considered, for assisting us to transfer this money to=
 your country, we will offer you 30% of the total fund, and 5% of the total=
 will be set aside to cover any expenses incurred during this transaction. =
65% will be for me and my family to invest in your country under your super=
vision.
