Dear Sir/Madam, 


                                               URGENT FOREIGN BUSINESS


Please do not think this is one of those scam or junk mails you receive in your
mailbox/fax machine, which I receive also, but I plead for your tolerance. 


I got your contact address from the network online while browsing through
website of business opportunities in your country. 


My name is MRS. PATRICIA NKOMO the wife of late MR. ADVENT NKOMO of Zimbabwe.
Let me quickly bring to your knowledge why I need your urgent assistance. 


During the current war against the farmers in Zimbabwe from the supporters of
our PRESIDENT MR. ROBERT MUGABE to claim all the white owned farms in our
country, he ordered all the white owned farmers to surrender all their farms to
his party members and his followers, my husband was among the rich black farmers
in the country who stand firmly against the way the white farmers were being
brutally maltreated, taking their farms without compensation. 


This land problem came when PRESIDENT ROBERT MUGABE introduced a New Land Act
Reform (NLAR), which wholly affected the rich white farmers. This resulted to
killing and mob action by the Zimbabwean war veterans. In fact many people were
killed because of the land reform act for which my husband was among the victims
and after his assassination, the same Government burned our farm and residential


The only thing left for us is the sum of US$22,500.000 (TWENTY TWO MILLION FIVE
HUNDRED THOUSAND UNITED STATES DOLLARS), which my husband deposited in one of
the private finance security company in Johannesburg South Africa before his
death, as if he foresaw the looming danger in Zimbabwe. 


This money is protected in a big metal box and was declared to the security
company at the point of deposit as precious valuables e.g., Gold, Diamond and
Germ Stone to avoid the security company knowing that the contents of the
consignment deposited with them contains cash. This amount was meant for the
purchase of new machines and chemicals for the farms and establishment of a new
farm in Swaziland. 


It is for this reason that I and my only son MR. ALEX NKOMO seek asylum in
South Africa so that we can invest this fund as well. But since our arrival
here, we have spent quite a fortune looking for how we can get through in order
to clear this fund out of the security company, but all our effort were abortive
due to the law of South Africa that prohibits a person with refugee status to
operate a bank account or do any banking transaction of this magnitude. As the
wife, I am saddled with the responsibility of seeking for a genuine foreign
partner that will assist us transfer this fund to his/her account for


I must also let you know that this transaction is100% risk free and my family
has agreed to give you 20% of the total money 5% will be for any expenses that
may occur during the time of this transaction and 75% is for the entire family
for investment in your country. 


Upon your acceptance to this offer, you are strictly advised to reply through
our family e-mail:   I will also like you to furnish me
with your private phone number, so that we can establish that mutual
communication. For more information, read on this website below: 


Thanks as I expect your soonest response. 



       (For the family)
