Good day,

My name is Mr. Edward Taibu, the son of Mr. Terry Taibu of Zimbabwe. It might be a surprise to you where I got your contact address; I got it from the net. Don't be worried because I am contacting you in good faith.

During the crisis against the farmers of Zimbabwe by the supporters of our President Robert Mugabe to claim all the white owned farms in our country, he ordered all the white farmers to surrender their farms to his party members and their followers. My Father was one of the best farmers in the country and knowing that he did not support the President political ideology and was totally against President Mugabe act against white Farmers. Because his protest against Mugabe, the president supporters invaded my father's farm and burnt down everything, killed him and confiscated all his investments. Before this unpleasant incident, my mother and my father had already visited South Africa to deposit the sum of Seven Million, Five Hundred Thousand United States Dollars (US$7.5M) in the safe vault of a Security and financial company here in Johannesburg South Africa.

This action was taken because my father felt the growing tension on the farm issue but I guess he never anticipated the tragedy that brought his brutal and sudden death. At the time of deposition, the real content was not disclosed to the security officials; instead, it was deposited as Family Valuables? Valued for the real content in the consignment.

After the bloody incident, we all had to escape out of our country for the safety of our lives. We seek refuge in South Africa and we were permitted to reside here as Political Refugees under section (5.9). Because of our present and unpleasant status, my mother and I are seriously looking forward to having an overseas partner that will assist us with the convenient and legal transfer of the funds out of South Africa.

If my proposition is considered, for assisting us to transfer this money to your country, we will offer you 25% of the total fund, 75% will be for my family. We might wish to invest a large portion of our share in your country under your supervision.

For detailed information, you can contact me on my e-mail. I would appreciate confidentiality and honesty in our correspondence. Your immediate response will be highly welcomed.

I wait to hear from you. Be with God.

Best Wishes,
