Good Day, 
 With warm heart I offer my friendship, and my greetings, 
 and I hope this letter meets you in good time. It will 
 be surprising to you to receive this proposal from me 
 since you do not know me personally. 
 However, I am sincerely seeking your confidence in this 
 transaction, which I propose with my free mind and as a 
 person of integrity. 
 My name is Wolny  Olkusz, the first son of Paul Olkusz, 
 of the most popular black farmer from Zimbabwe, murdered 
 in the land dispute in my country. As led by my instinct, 
 I decided to contact you through email, after searching 
 for contacts via the Internet, as it is the only means 
 I can contact anybody since I am cutting off ties with 
 Zimbabwe for security and safety reasons. 
 However, I apologise if this is not acceptable to you. The 
 purpose of this letter is to seek your most needed 
 assistance in a business venture. Due to the land and 
 political problems in Zimbabwe, as a result of President 
 Robert Mugabe's introduction of new Land Act Reform wholly 
 affecting the rich white farmers and the few rich black 
 farmers, and his desire to hold on to power for life, my 
 father for saw the danger that came in Zimbabwe. 
 Before he was murdered, he withdrew all of our business 
 foreign accounts in dollars and sold up our shares in 
 major companies. We then went to SOUTH AFRICA to deposit 
 the sum of US$22.5 million (Twenty-two million, Five Hundred 
 thousand US dollars), in a private security company. This 
 money was deposited with this Private Security company for 
 safety and security reasons, and was to be used for the 
 purchase of land, new machines and chemicals establishment 
 of new farms in Europe. President Mugabe's support for the 
 violent Zimbabwean war veterans and some lunatics in the 
 society, led to the murder of my beloved father and other 
 innocent lives. 
 I was continually threatened to abandon my inheritance from 
 my father after he was murdered. I rested for a while, but 
 when the danger became unbearable, and I survived two murder 
 attempts, I fled Zimbabwe. I am currently staying in the 
 Netherlands where I am seeking political asylum. In fact my 
 decision to come here to seek asylum, is because the security 
 company from South Africa, has a branch in Holland and they 
 have moved the deposit from their office in Johannesburg down here. 
 I need to transfer this money to an account and invest part 
 of the money. Since the law of Nether land prohibits a refugee 
 (asylum seeker) to open any bank account or to be involved 
 in any financial transaction, this is why I am seeking a 
 genuine and reliable partner, whose account this money can 
 be transferred, hence this proposal to you.You have to 
 understand that this decision taken by me entrusts my future 
 and in your hands, as a result of the safe keeping of this money. 
 If you accept to assist me, all I want you to do for me, is 
 to assist with arrangements to claim the deposit from the 
 security company from their office in Netherlands, 
 as it has now been transfered from Johannesburg, South Africa 
 to their branch here. The company will be legally informed of 
 you representing me. For your assistance, I have two options for you. 
 Firstly you can choose to have 10% of the money for your 
 assistance, and helping me open an account for the money 
 to be deposited here, or you can go into partnership with 
 me for the proper profitable investment of the money in your 
 country. Whichever the option you want, please to notify me in 
 your reply. I have also set aside 1%($225,000,00) of this money 
 for all kinds of expenses that come our way in the process of 
 this transaction, and 4% ($900,000,00) for Charity donation. 
 If you prefer to accept the 10% for assisting with opening an account, 
 then 85%will be left in the account here for me. Please, I want you 
 maintain the absolute secrecy for the purpose of this transaction. 
 I look forward to your reply and co-operation, and I thank you in 
 advance as I anticipate your co-operation.You can reach me on via email, 

Wolny Olkusz
