Dear Intending Partner,
This may appear a bit surprising to you but very beneficial as a matter of urgency, I am desperately looking for a foreign partner whom I can trust to handle some investment or fund movement .I am Mrs. MARIA PFEBVE wife of late MR.PETER PFEBVE, who was murdered by the Zimbabwean veterans and irate black people in early 2000. I am writing from South Africa. I got your address from the internet through the Consultancy directory during my search for a reliable and honest person to transact this business with.
I write to solicit for your special assistance to a family shattered by a tyrannical government led by a dictator and his (ZANU-PF) ruling party-president Robert Mugabe. Because of land and farm land crisis in Zimbabwe, the government secretly sponsored the war veterans and some irate party members to dispossess the land being occupied by white farmers. This action has led to the killing of some members of opposition party including my husband (Mr. Peter Pfebve).But before the death of my husband, he anticipated some dangers and so he deposited the sum of US$15.4M(Fifteen Million Four Hundred Thousand United States Dollars)in the name of our only son JAMES PFEBVE, with the help of reputable security company in south Africa with the intention of using it to open fertilizer manufacturing company among other companies in our neighboring country(Swaziland) after his university education. On the 29th of June 2002, the war veterans and some supporters of (ZANUF) ruling par
(my husband) to death. Since then, they have been terrorizing my only son, JAMES PFEBVE, but we managed to escape to a neighboring country, South Africa where given political asylum status (refugee). Our position in South Africa as refugees does not permit us to open an account or run any huge financial business that is why I want this fund to be transferred into your private account so that you will assist him to invest it in your country.
Hence, if you agree to assist us, we will offer you 20% of the money for your assistance, 80% will be for our family investment in your country through your assistance.
I need your urgent and confidential response. Please you can contact our financial adviser Mr. Grant Sisulu currently in South Africa with my son JAMES PFEBVE on: email@example.com for more details
(For The Family).
Upon your immediate response, I will immediately arrange and send to you all the information that will empower your good self in finalizing the transaction with the security company here in South Africa I will also send to you the agreement that will protect both interest .And also further
Information about you is necessary for I can not play on this. Waiting for your prompt and positive response. Please read about Problems in Zimbabwe from the link below.
