This might be a surprise to you where I got your contact address.I got your address from South African Information Exchange in Johannesburg.During the current war against the farmers in Zimbabwe from the supports of our President Robert Mugabe to claim all the white-owned farms to his party members and his followers, he ordered all the white-owned farmers to surrender all their farms to his party members and his followers.
My father was one of the best farmers in our country and because he did not support his idea, supporters invaded my father’s farm and burnt everything in the farm, killing my father and made away with a lot of items in my father’s farm.After the death of my father, i and my family decided to move out from Zimbabwe because our lives are still in danger with the money my father kept safe in my mother’s care. The amount is US$ 9.Million(Nine Million United States Dollars)and we decided to move to the Republic of South Africa where we deposited the money in a Security Company as valuables. So, I decided to contact overseas Firm that will assist me to move this money out of South Africa, because we are asylum seekers here in South Africa.We have agreed to give you from the total sum 20% for helping us to move this money to your country and 5%:will be mapped out for expenses both of us might incured during this transaction while the balance will be for my family investment in your country.
