URGENT FAMILY HELP NEEDED
Naturally, this letter will come to you as a surprise since we have not met, permit me however, I am CELESTINA BROWN wife of Zimbabwean Farmer Mr. PATRICT BROWN. I am contacting you as the need for me to have a foreign partner in your country has become necessary due to my plans to relocate and establish a private company in that region. As the present political instability in my country Zimbabwe, does not encourage financial investment, as the environment is not conducive for investment and most of all security is not insured, just as reported by international media.
This problem started when the Zimbabwean government under the leadership of President Robert Mugabe announced a degree on May 31st 2000 to seize more than 849 white-owned farms. So far, more than 1,400 white a. Therefore, I decided to contact you, for your assistance, so that I can establish a company in your country and relocate there with this money mine father kept for me in a security and trust company in South Africa.
Which amounted to US$11.5 Million, I will upon receiving this money on my behalf, pending my arrival to meet with you in your country so that we can both make further arrangements with regards to establishing the Company. As a partner you will be entitled to 25% of the total sum, and in whichever company that we both decide to establish, when I arrive your country we shall discuss that facially. You can contact my son; MR.ERIC BROWN, and email us through this Email; email@example.com
