From: Mrs. Rita Dominick 132, Bruce Street Santon, Johannesburg, South Africa Tel: + 27 78 1649 709 Email: email@example.com Good Day, My name is Mrs. Rita Dominick, the wife to the late Mr.PETER Dominick SNR of Zimbabwe . This might come as a surprise to you about where and how I got your contact address. It was a result of a trusted confident from the South Africa Chamber of commerce and industries in Johannesburg South Africa . 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 to his party members and followers. He ordered all white farmers to surrender all farm to his party members and followers. My Husband was one of the very best farmers in our country and was in partnership with a white Man. Mr. Lawrence Smith from England . He did not support Mr. Mugabe's ideas so his farm was burnt and invaded by Mugabe's supporters. Everything was burnt in which my Husband and his partner were killed during the invasion and they made away with lots of items. Before his death my Husband has deposited with one Security Company in Johannesburg , South Africa . The sum of US$25 Million dollars (Twenty Five Million United States Dollars) this money was meant for the purchase of some farming equipments and materials from a Company here in South Africa . After his death we decided to escape to South Africa . Where he has deposited this sum with the security Company as valuables (in a treasure box). I decided to contact the foreigner, from outside the shores of Africa or Companies that will assist my family to move the fund from here. Because of our present status as asylum seekers and also because South Africa and Zimbabwe have a bilateral agreement which can lead to the seizure of the fund, if we invest here in South Africa . Secondly our status has made it impossible to invest the fund or deal directly with the South Africa financial institutions. In the cause of moving the fund to any place my family has agreed to offer you 25% of the fund for your assistant, while 75% will be for my to investment in your Company/ country.

PETER DOMINICK Through the above telephone and email address .Please note that this transaction is 100% risk free and absolute confidentiality is required for the safety of my family and the fund, Thanks and God Bless Best regards Mrs. Rita Dominick (For the family).
