Good day Dear, You may be surprised to receive this letter from me,since you do not know= me personally, but for purpose of introduction. I am Mr.Pascal Kawenza, the first son of late Dr.George Kawenza, who was recently murdered in the land disputed in our country Zimbabwe. I got you= r contact through my personal search for a honest and trustworthy individua= l,who can help me and my family in receiving this fund, for proper investment a= nd safe keeping, Before the death of my father, he told me about the deposit that he made = in Security Company through dipolmatic means,the total amount my late father deposited is(US$16,Million United States Dollars ), in a security company= , as if he foresee the looming danger in Zimbabwe. The money was deposited in a box as gem stones to avoid demurrage from th= e Security Company. and the money was made for establishment of an industr= y company before he was murdered. This land problem came in when Zimbabwean President Mr. Robert Mugabe, introduced a new Land Act which wholly affected the rich white farmers an= d some few black farmers. This resulted in killing and mob action by Zimbabwean= war veterans and some lunatics in the society. In fact, Million of people ha= ve been killed because of this Land Reform act. Heads of Governments from the western world especially Britain USA have condemned Mugabe's new Land Reform Act and for this reason, SADC(Southern African Development Community) heads of states have met and voiced their support for Mr.Mugabe. South African President Thabo Mbeki and President = of Malawi have been sent by SADC to Britain to support Mugabe's new Land Ref= orm Act. It is against this background, that I and my family who are currently sta= ying in Cotonou Repubilc of Benin , we have decided to transfer my late father's = money to a foreign account. As the eldest son of my father, I am saddled with t= his responsibility of seeking a genuine account where this money could be transferred into. I am faced with the dilemma of investing this amount of money in Africa f= or fear of going through the same experience in future since most of the countrie= s have lost similar political history. However, your compensation for this noble assistance will be negotiated u= pon your acceptance to help me as a foreign partner, since you are to provide= an account for the claim.Meanwhile,5% will be set aside for reimbursement of= any expenses made by you and me during the curse of the transaction. If this proposal is acceptable by you, reoly us immediately to enable us = give you more informtions, Reply me back through my Alternative email(email@example.com) Thanks and God Bless. Regards, Thanks and God Bless. Mr. Pascal Kawenza, (for the family.)
