Dear Friend,

You may be surprised to receive this letter from me since you do not know
me personally. The purpose of my introduction is that I am Kenneth
Muponda,the first son of Isaac Muponda one of the most popular black farmer
in Zimbabwe who was recently murdered in the land dispute in my country. I
got your contact through network online hence decided to write you.

Before the death of my father, he had taken me to Johannesburg to deposit
the sum of USD$19.5 million (Nineteen million, Five Hundred thousand United
States dollars), in one of the private security company as he foresaw the
looming danger in Zimbabwe this money was deposited in a box as gem stones
to avoid much demurrage from security company. This amount was meant for the
purchase of new machines and chemicals for the Farms and establishment of
new farms in Swaziland.

This land problem came when Zimbabwean President Mr. Robert Mugabe
introduced a new Land Act Reform wholly affecting the rich white farmers and
some few black farmers, and this resulted to the killing and mob action by
Zimbabwean war veterans and some lunatics in the society. In fact a lot of
people were killed because of this Land reform Act for which my father was
one of the victims.

It is against this background that, I and my family fled Zimbabwe for fear
of our lives and are currently staying in the Netherlands where we are
seeking political asylum and moreso have decided to transfer my fathers
money to a more reliable foreign account. since the law of Netherlands
prohibits a refugee (asylum seeker) to open any bank account or to be
involved in any financial transaction throughout the territorial zone of
Netherlands, As the eldest son of my father, I am saddled with the
responsibility of seeking a genuine foreign account where this money could
be transferred without the knowledge of my government who are bent on taking
everything we have got. The South African government seems to be playing
along with them.

I am faced with the dilemma of moving this amount of money out of South
Africa for fear of going through the same experience in future, both
countries have similar political history. As a businessman,I am seeking for
a partner who I have to entrust my future and that of my family in his
hands, I must let you know that this transaction is risk free. If you accept
to assist me and my family, all I want you to do for me, is to make an
arrangements with the security company to clear the consignment(funds) from
their afiliate office here in the Netherlands as i have already given
directives for the consignment to be brought to the Netherlands from South
Africa.But before then all modalities will have to be put in place like
change of ownership to the consignment and more importantly this money I
intend to use for investment.

I have two options for you. Firstly you can choose to have certain
percentage of the money for nominating your account for this transaction Or
you can go into partnership with me for the proper  profitable investment of
the money in your country. Whichever the option you want, feel free to
notify me. I have also mapped out 5% of this money for all kinds of expenses
incurred in the process of this transaction.If you do not prefer a
partnership I am willing to give you 10% of the money while the remaining
85% will be for my investment in your country.

I implore you to maintain the absolute secrecy required in this

Yours Faithfully,
Mr Kenneth Muponda
