Goodday to you. Dear friend. You may be surprised to received this letter from me because you dont know me in person , I am Dr mabo dagash, the first and only son of late Mr Mallam Dagash, who was murdered in the land dispute in Zimbabwe,I was furnished of your profile from your country web site I decided to contact you. Before the death of my father, he had taken me to HOLLAND to deposit the sum of US$25,000,000 (TWENTY FIVE MILLION US DOLLAR), in a private security and Finance company, as if he foresaw the looming danger in Zimbabwe. This amount was meant for the purchase of chemicals and tractors for the development of our new farms in Swaziland. This land problem came when the Zimbabwean President Mr ROBERT MUGABE introduced a new land reform act, which wholly affected the rich white farmers and some black farmers. This result to killing and mob action by Zimbabwean war veterans and some lunatics in the society, Alot of people have been killed because of this land-reform act, which my father is one of them. You can look up to CNN news every day for what ism happening in the country,if you are in doubt, you can also go to the internet to see: www.dailynews.co.zw, <http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/africa/2414713.stm,> <http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/africa/1870851.stm> <http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/africa/2568545.stm> <http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/africa/1966949.stm> it is against this backdrop that my family and I who are currently in Zimbabwe decided to transfer our fathers money to any foreign account since the Zimbabwe law prohibits refugees(asylum seekers) to operate any type of bank account or to be involved in any huge financial transaction. As the eldest child of my father, I am seeking for a genuine foreign partner who can help us transfer this money in to his or her oversea account. On the other hand,the Zimbabwe government seems to be playing along with them. We are therefore faced with the dilemma of investing this money in Zimbabwe for the fear of going through the same experience in future, As a business man whom I willentrust my future and that of my entire family in his or her hands,I must let you know that this business is completely 100% risk-free. As we cannot accept to venture into any dangerous deal with our fortune, if you therefore accept to assist us, which I know that you will. Please I will like you to contact me urgently. Feel free to ask all questions you deem necessary. For your assistance , we have proposed two options for you. (1)You may go into partnership with me for the proper profitable investment of the money in your country. (2)If you do not prefer a partnership, I am illing to give you 25% of the sum while the remaining 70% will be for my family prior for investment in your country, while the remaining 5% will be used to defray all the expenses that may incure during the process of this transaction. You are therefore required of absolute confidentiality of this matter. you can reply me in my private mail box: email@example.com God bless you.
