FROM THE FAMILY OF LATE MR. SOLOMON MUJURU
You may be surprised to receive this message from me since you don't know me in person, but for the purpose of introduction, I am Mr. Joel Mujuru a brother to Late General Solomon Mujuru a citizen of Zimbabwe and our country's most decorated post-independence army general, who was blazed in his farm for a land dispute in ZIMBABWE.
My late brother was among the few black Zimbabwean rich farmers murdered in cold blood by the agent of the ruling government of President ROBERT MUGABE for his alleged support and sympathy for Zimbabwean opposition party(MDC).
Before the death of my brother, he deposited the sum of US$10.5Million (Ten Million Five Hundred Thousand United State Dollars Only) with one Security Company when he went to South Africa to purchase his farm machinery equipment, as if he foresaw the looming danger in Zimbabwe.
The money was documented and deposited as a consignment containing pre-history African artifacts to avoid any suspicion and security implications from government authorities here and also to avoid seized and much demurrage from the security organization.
The land problem arose when President R. MUGABE introduced a new land Act, which wholly affects the white rich farmers and some few blacks vehemently condemned the 'MODUS OPERANDI' adopted by the government.
This resulted to rampant killing and mob actions. I am currently staying in South Africa as a refugee asylum seeker, and on-behalf of our family, I have decided to transfer this money to a foreign country where I can invest it.
I am faced with the dilemma of investing this amount of money in South Africa because the financial law and Regulations of the Republic of South Africa do not permit us financial rights to such huge sum of money. In view of this, I cannot invest the fund in Johannesburg, South Africa. Moreover, the South Africa monetary policy/law does not allow such investment by an asylum seeker or refugee.
Also if you are willing to assist me, I have agreed to offer you 25% of the total money, while 75% will be for a joint business venture in your country. Above all, I must let you know that this transaction is 100% risk free and the nature of your business does not necessarily matter.

Remember this is just a brief detail of it, if you are interested I will send more details to you for us to proceed with the transaction. Please, this transaction is highly confidential for security purposes and your quick reply will be highly appreciated.
Mr. Joel Mujuru
