FROM: Mr. PETER THEMBA Tel: 27- 78-1649709 Fax: 27-11 219 7036 (JHB) SOUTH AFRICA ATTENTION! SIR / MADAM INVITATION FOR PARTINERSHIPWith due respect, trust and humility, I write to you this proposal, which I believe would be of great interest to you. I am looking for a reliable and capable foreign partner that will assist my family and I to transfer fund to his personal or private account and for investment purpose. I am Mr. PETER THEMBA the son of Late Mr. JOHN THEMBA, who was the "Chairman" of the farmer's co-operation in Zimbabwe.
My Father was among the few blacks that were murdered in cold blood by the President Robert Mugabe Administration during the land dispute that just happened in Zimbabwe.
After the death of my Father, we decided to move out of ZIMBABWE because our lives were in danger because of the money that my father kept in his hidden safe in our house. The amount contained in the safe is US$28.9 Million Dollars (TWENTY EIGHT MILLION NINE HUNDRED THOUSAND UNITED STATES DOLLARS). This money was meant for the purchase of new machines and chemicals for the farms and establishment of new farms in Swaziland. We moved to South Africa and deposited this money in a security company in a box as valuables belonging to our foreign partner pending when we see somebody that will assist us, for the safety of ours.
We are presently in South Africa as Refugee (Asylum Seekers) and as such the law of South Africa does not permit us to operate or open any bank account here in South Africa or be involved in any financial transaction with the bank. That is why we contacted you to assist us in this transaction.
We are ready to give you 30% of the total amount for the inconveniences this we cost you and for accepting to assist us, contact me on the above phone numbers. Indicating your interest as soon as possible, on receiving of your acceptance, I shall be glad to give you more clarification on the modalities needed for smooth successful completion of this transaction.
I anticipate your quick response MR. PETER THEMBA (For and on Behalf of the Family) _________________________________________________________________The average US Credit Score is 675.
