Very Urgent From Mr.Roni Damba South Africa TEL: +27 73 6544811 My private email: email@example.com Attn Director / Ceo Dear Sir, With warm heart I offer my friendship and greetings and I hope this mail meets you in good time. However strange or surprising this contact might seem to you as we have not met personally or had any dealings in the past, I Humbly ask that you take due consideration of its Importance and the immense benefit it will be to you.After careful consideration with my family, we resolved to contact you for your
most needed assistance in this manner. I duly apologize for infringing on your privacy, if this contact is not acceptable to you, as I make this proposal to you as a person of integrity. For the purpose of introduction, I am Mr Roni Damba the son of Late Mr. Steve Desmond Damba who was the "Chairman" of the farmer's co-operation in Zimbabwe. During the current Crisis against the farmers of the Zimbabwe by supporters of our president Robert Mugabe to claim all the white owned farms in our country, he ordered all the white farmers to surrender their farms to his party members and their followers. My father was one of the best farmers in the country and knowing that he did not support the president's political ideology, thepresident supporters invaded my father's farm burnt down everything, killed him
and confiscated all his investments.Before the death of my father, he took me to South Africa to deposit the sum of
US$ 25.5 (Twenty Five Million and Five Hundred Thousand United States Dollars) with a Security &Finance Company, as he knew the looming danger in Zimbabwe. The money was deposited as gem of precious stones to avoid much demurrage from the Security Company. This money was meant for buying of new machineries and chemical for farms and establishment of new farms in Lesotho and Swaziland. I and my family are currently residing in Johannesburg South Africa as Asylum seeker (Refugee). Because of the strong relationship existing between the current South Africa Government and Zimbabwean Government it is increasingly becoming too risky for me and my family to remain in South Africa. As a result of this I am seeking your assistance to help us (me and my family) clear this funds which my late father deposited in the security company and deposit it in your personal account in your country for our investment. If you are willing to assist us, we are prepared to give you 30% of the total sum as compensation, and 10% is set aside to settle any expenses that we might incur during the cause of clearing and transferring this funds to your nominated account, while the remaining 60% will be for us (me and my family) for our investment in your country. For more information regarding this transaction, kindly give me a call on thisnumber: +27 73 654 4811 or send me a mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. PLEASE NOTE: If this is not of any interest to you, I apologize for disturbing you and wish you
success in all you. Thanks and God bless, Yours Faithfully, Mr.Roni Damba (For and On behalf of my family) TEL:+27 73 654 4811 ---------------------------------------------------------------- This message was sent using IMP, the Internet Messaging Program.
