Ogbemudia Olonga. Phone No: +31659034022. Email: email@example.com, Attention, BENEFICIAL BUSINESS PROPOSAL. You may be surprised to receive this letter from me since you don't know me personally. I am Ogbemudia Olonga , the Son of late Nwayenga Olonga, who was Murdered in a land dispute in Zimbabwe. I got your contact via the internet here in The Netherlands and I decided to contact you. I do not know you personally but I rely on faith to see me through. Black war veterans claiming to be farmers invaded my father's house on April 15, 2004 at about 6.32 am in Mach eke/Virginia district and murdered my father because of his assistance that white farmers should be allowed to retain their farm lands despite the recently introduced land reform "Act" in Zimbabwe by the head of state Sir, Robert Mugabe. Until his death, he was a leading member of Zimbabwean farmers union (ZFU). It took us so long to contact you because we had believe that Robert Mugabe will soon be pulled out of power, in order for us to return home and invest our inheritance, but with the recent development, crisis and mayhem emanating from the recent presidential election held a couple of months ago, it is certain he will still remain president for long, hence I don't have a choice than to solicit for your assistance. Before His on timely death, he had deposited the sum of Twenty Million Six Hundred Thousand United States Dollars (US$20,600,000) with a Security firm in South Africa but has been moved to Netherlands via an affiliate security firm in Amsterdam; this money was deposited in a Box as family valuables to avoid suspicion or seizure, so the officials of the firm believes they are helping us in keeping our personal Valuables, not realizing that it is money. These funds were meant for the purchase of new machinery and agro-allied chemicals for the new farms acquired in Swaziland. This land problem came when our president, Sir Robert Mugabe introduced a new law act" Modus Operandi" reform which wholly affected the rich white farmers. A lot of people were killed because of these land reforms "Act" of which my late Father was one of the main targets. My father was solely targeted because of his support for the white farmers. Based on this, my Family had to spread out, I am now in Holland with my Little Brother as refugees while my Mother and younger Sisters are living in South Africa as refugees as well. We Decided to contact you to assist us in making claim of this Box as the new Beneficiary to the deposit and to assist in investing the funds in your Country or any part of the world, the monetary/investment laws of South Africa and The Netherlands prohibits refugees from running bank accounts or be involved in any transaction/investment. I am saddled with this responsibility of seeking a genuine and honest person who will assist us in transferring this Money out of Holland without the knowledge of my country's Government whom are bent on taking everything my late father had after confiscating all his farm lands and investments in Zimbabwe and Swaziland. We are left with nothing except the money I am talking about now. For your assistance, my Mother and I are offering you 20% of the funds after the successful transfer of the funds to your account. 5% will be set aside for any expenses that might result during the process of this transaction,while 75% will be for my family which will be used for investment in your country under your own supervision. Please contact me through telephone, or email address indicated above if this proposal is of interest to you. While I implore you to maintain absolute confidentiality requiredin this transaction. If not, then I humbly apologize for this infringement on your privacy. Yours Truly, Ogbemudia Olonga. Phone No: +31659034022. Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
