From: Mr. Martin Nkosi, Johannesburg South Africa. Date: 08-06-2009 Good Day, This may appear a bit surprising to you but very beneficial as a matter of urgent, am desperately looking for a foreign partner whom I can trust to handle some Investment. I am Mr. Martin Nkosi, the son of late Mr. Felix Nkosi, who was murdered by the Zimbabwean veterans. I am writing from South Africa . I got your address from the Internet through the consultancy directory during my search for a reliable and honest person to transact this business with. I write to solicit for your special assistance to a family shattered by a tyrannical government led by a dictator and his (ZANU-PF) ruling party-president Robert Mugabe. Because of land and farm land crisis in Zimbabwe, the government secretly sponsored the war veterans and party members to dispossess the land being occupied by white / black farmers. This action has led to the killing of some members of opposition party including my Father (Felix Nkosi). But before the death of my Father, He deposited the sum of US$25.5m (Twenty Five million Five hundred Thousand United States Dollars) in my name, with the help of reputable security company in South Africa with the intention of using it to open fertilizer manufacturing company among other companies in our neighboring country (Swaziland) after my university education. On the 29th of June 2006, the war veterans and some supporters of (ZANU-PF) ruling party trooped into our compound and axed him (my Father) to death. Since then, they have been terrorizing my Family, but we managed to escape to a neighboring country, South Africa as a political asylum seeker (refugee) but our position in South Africa does not permit us to open an account or run any huge financial business. That is why I want this fund to be transferred into your private account so that you will assist us to invest this money in your country. Hence, you agree to assist us, we will offer you 30% while 70% will be for our family investment in your country under your close supervision. I need your urgent and confidential response. Thanks and God Bless. Best regards, Mr. Martin Nkosi,
