Dear Friend,

I am interested in establishing and operating a very viable business as a means of investment 
abroad. I do not  
Know too well on how this is done in your country, so I will need you to help me in this regard.

My preference is any good profit yielding business and I would appreciate any viable ideas you 
could come up with.  
I will also need you to help me look for properties like homes and lands for sale as I am proposing 
to invest the  
Sum of Fifty Million United States Dollars ($50,000,000 USD) for this. I do not know if you can and 
will be of  
Help to me.

For a brief on my personality; my name is John Bredenkamp, a Zimbabwean based in U.K. I was into 
private tobacco  
merchant. I am 68 years of age, married with a wife and 4 lovely kids. I dropped my tobacco 
business because it  
wasn’t producing profitable income. I have had so much problems with the British Authority just 
because am a  
Foreigner I believe.

My need for this business proposition and to acquire these properties is very urgent as I am 
planning to move out  
of this country with my family down to your country. I want you to also help in finding a good home 
where my  
Family and I will live in ( Mini Estate ).

Please I expect your prompt reply so that we can proceed swiftly. I will need your phone and fax 
numbers for  
easier communication with you if I am unable to access my emails.

Best Regards,
