Dear Friend,
l know that You may be surprise to receive this letter from me since you do not know me personally. 
First, let me introduce myself, I am MR JOHN IBEH the son of Tshepo IBEH , who was recently 
murdered in the on-going political dispute in ZIMBABWE.
I got your contact through my intensive Internet search here in Johannesburg when I was making 
inquiries of investment in your country,then I decided to write you directly. Before the death of 
my father, he had taken me to Amsterdan the Ntherlands to deposit the sum of US$21.5 Million 
companies as if he foresaw the looming political dangerin ZIMBABWE.
The money was deposited in boxes to the security company. This amount was meant for the purchase of 
new machines and farmland in SWAZILAND. This political problem came when ZIMBABWEAN president MR. 
ROBERT MUGABE introduced and conducted an election without an opposition party and also the new 
land act reform,which affected the rich white farmers and some few black farmers. 
This resulted in killing and mob actions by the Zimbabwean war veterans and some lunatics in the 
society. In fact alot of people were killed which my father was one of them because of this 
political misunderstanding.I am afraid of establishing here in South Africa for the fear of going 
through the same experience in future since both countries have similar political history. 
Moreover, The South African foreign exchange policy does not allow such investment for an asylum 
seeker and my age factor.
As a businessman whom i have to entrust my future and that of my family in his hand, I must let you 
know that this transaction is risk free. If you accept to assist me and my family, all I want you 
to do for me is to arrange and come to Amsterdam the Netherlands , so that you can open a non 
resident account which will aid us in transferring the money into any account you will nominate 
overseas, and to enable us see face to face and discuss investment opportunities. This money I 
intend to use for investment.
I have two options for you, first, you choose to have certain percentage of the money for 
nominating your account for this transaction, or you can go into partnership with me for the proper 
investment of the money in your country, which ever the option you want, be free to notify me. I 
have also mapped out 10% of this money for all kinds of expenses incurred in the process of this 
transaction, If you do not prefer a partnership, I am willing to give you 20% of the money while 
the remaining 70%will be for my investment in your country. Contact me through my email while you maintain the absolute secrecy and gentility required in this
Yours faithfully,
(For the IBEH family)
