Attn: Request For Assistance

You may be surprise to receive this letter from me, since you don't
know me personally, I am JAMES WEMBA the first son of MOYO WEMBA who
was recently murdered in a land dispute in Zimbabwe.
I am writing this letter to request your assistance and
confidentiality to handle a transfer of fund into a Foreign account
and I decided to write you,my late father was among the few black
Zimbabwean rich farmers murdered in cold blood by the agents of the
ruling Government of President Robert Mugabe, for his alleged support
and sympathy for the Zimbabwean opposition party controlled by the
white minority.Before my fathers death, he has taken his fund to
Europe and deposited the sum of Thirty six Million United State
Dollars ($36million)with a Security and Finance Company as if he
foreseen the looming danger in Zimbabwe. This money was allocated for
the purchase of new Machinery and chemical products for Agro allied
farm and for the establishment of new farms in Lesotho and Swaziland.
These land problems arose when President Robert Mugabe introduced a
new land act that wholly affected the rich white farmers, and the
blacks vehemently condemned the modsoperandi adopted by the
This resulted to rampant Killings and mob action by the war veterans
and some political thugs,precisely more than three
thousands(3,000)people have so far been killed.Heads of government
from the west, especially Britain and United States have voiced their
condemnation of Mugabe's plans.Subsequently, South Africa Development
Community (S.A.D.C) has continuously supported Mugabe's new land act,
it is against this background that my entire family who are currently
residing in South Africa have decided to transfer my father's money
into a foreign account.

As the eldest son of my father, I am saddled with the responsibility
of seeking a genuine foreign account where this money could be
transferred without the knowledge of my government who are tactically
freezing our family's wealth and South Africa government seem to be
playing along with them. I am faced with the dilemma of investing this
money in South Africa for the fear of encountering the same experience
in the future,since both countries have the same political history.
Moreso, The South Africa Foreign Exchange policy does not allow such
investment, Hence I am seeking for political asylum in The
Netherlands. As a business person, I wannts to entrust my future and
that of my family into your hands, I must let you know that this
transaction is 100% risk free and the nature of your business does not
necessarily matter.For your assistance,we are offering you 15% of the
sum, 80% for me and my family, while 5% will be mapped out for any
expenses that we may incurred during this transaction.We wish to
invest our money on commercial properties based on your
advice.Finally,i will demand for a total assurance and sincerity on
your part when the fund gets to the account you are going to provide
in your country.If this proposal is accepted by you, Thanks and God
bless you. Awaiting your urgent response.
Kind Regards , JAMES WEMBA
