Dear Friend, With due respect and humulity am send you this email, Please don't be offended or surprised to receive this mail which is sent without you prior permission since we do not know each other before now but we will meet soon because of my situation..I got your contact through network online hence decided to write you becausec of my desperate situation. I am Mrs.Liz.Benson, the wife of late Mr.Famous.Benson , a farmer in Zimbabwe who was murdered in the land dispute in my country. This land problem came when Zimbabwean President Mr.Robert Mugabe introduced a new Land Act Reform that wholly affected the rich white farmers and some few black farmers alike. This resulted to the killings and mob action by Zimbabwean war veterans and some lunatics in the society during political electioins in my country. In fact a lot of people were killed because of this Land reform Act for which my husband was one of the victims. Before the death of my h! usband, he made a secret but undisclosed deposit with a security Firm in Dubai U.A.E.He was a leading and successful Government Contractor who was blessed. This was done when he noticed the looming danger in Zimbabwe on land policies.This amount was meant for the purchase of new Agricultural machineries and chemicals for our Farms establishment in Swaziland. The consignment[3 sealed trunk boxes] was declared to contain Gem Stones and Family Valuables shipped on diplomatic cover to avoid customs detecting the actual contents. The actual content is 46.5M millions in $100 bills. It is against this background that all my family members fled Zimbabwe for fear of our lives. We are currently taking refuge outside my country where we sought political asylum. Uptill now there is no peace or safety in my country and the family have decided to have the boxes containing the funds moved out to a safer country by the Securitydeposit Agency so that the funds can! be banked and invested in some profit yielding venture or bu! sinessk2 E I must let you know that this transaction is free from risk because I have all the necessary documents. But we muist treat the issue with relative secrecy and confidentiality in the interest of my family for other reasons good reasons. If you accept to assist to invest part of the funds, do please contact our Lawyer , BARR Bar.Necholas Ngoy at: his mail email@example.com for details. of what is to be done to finalize all the arrangements with the security company for the delivery of the consignment to you after reaching a workable agreement with you. He would conclude all arrangements with you to clear the consignment[in which the funds are secretly packed ). He would also explain our desire to sharing of the funds on 70%/30% basis and, thesubsequent investment to be made in your country with our share as you may advise.
