I got your contact address through the country search. My name is Mr. Solomon Ndebele the eldest son of late Mr. Martin Ndebele of Zimbabwe. My late father was the chairman of a farm and refinery company in Zimbabwe for 12 years before his untimely death.
He was among the few black that were murdered in cold blood by President Robert Mugabeâs administration during the land dispute that happened in Zimbabwe years ago, the reason why I need your urgent assistance, is because of the sum of US$11.5 Million (Eleven Million, Five Hundred United States America Dollars), that I inherited from my late father which he deposited in a private security company here in south Africa before his death, he was a very rich farmer and he owned a refinery co-operation company in Zimbabwe before he was killed by our president ROBERT MUGABEâS government, lf you listen to international news CNN or BBC you will know what is happening in my country Zimbabwe.
l am living as a refugee in South Africa and l cannot transfer this money myself because we are not allowed to operate a bank account or do any business, that is why I need your urgent assistance.
You and I will be in a partnership in business as soon as you received the total fund / l will tell you more when l hears from you. I also have a good friend of my late father here in South Africa who is a financial adviser here, he has promise to help us transfer this fund to any nominated bank account abroad when l get somebody l trust, he was the person that advised me to get an international partner to assist my family to avoid of loosing the total fund here.
