Dear Friend, Sorry to encroach on your privacy like this, but this is very important. Study this portion carefully if you will be able to handle the proposal I put before you. I am Mr. Asek Moni the first son of Mr. Mwuese Moni, a very successful Zimbabwean Farmer who was murdered along with two of his body guards by agents of the Zimbabwean government on 19th November 2003. I got your contact after carefully searching through Business directories for some honest individual to help us in this very important issue; hence I decided to contact you for your assistance. My father deposited the sum of seventeen million six hundred and fifty-five thousand United States dollars ($17,655,000) in a security and finance firm here in Amsterdam the Netherlands several months before his unexpected demise. For security reasons, this money was deposited as precious stones pending the cessation of violence that plagued my country due to the introduction of land reform decree act by the government of President Robert Mugabe. My father set this money aside for the purchase of modern equipment for a full mechanized farming. He had acquired large tracts of land and to equip it with modern tools due to the high product demands from his then registered farm products distributors. He could not realize this project due to his death. After the death of my father, we became apparent target and we received constant death threats hence the urgent need for an immediate secret relocation. My mother, little bother and I secretly fled to the Netherlands where we have currently sought a political asylum. With our current status here as refugee, we are under a strict restriction from any financial transaction of any sort and given our current precarious financial situation, we need to secure and invest this money my father left behind. For this reason I have decided to seek the assistance of a company or a genuine and honest individual who could provide us with the necessary assistance and a foreign account where this fund can be deposited without the knowledge of my government. We have contacted the security and finance firm and the fund is ready for release. That is why we are making you this proposal of fronting for us to have this money released to you. You, in turn, will then make the money available to us after deducting your percentage share or you could jointly invest the funds with us. We have also set aside 5% of the total sum for any expenses that might be incurred in course of this transaction. Should you choose to have a certain percentage, we would be willing to give you 22%. Please let me know what your decision is through the fax number +318-473-00-296. Please include your contact email address of choice. You may also include your fax and telephone numbers for further deliberations. Please keep this strictly confidential for the interest of myself and my family. Your urgent response would be appreciated. Kind regards. Asek Moni. P.S: You can also mail me at email@example.com
