FROM: Mr. Mac Makuleke Johannesburg, South Africa. TEL: +27-78-257-1528. UREGENT BUSINESS PROPOSAL Dear Sir//madamWith due respect, trust and humility, I write to you this proposal, which I believe would be of great interest to you. I find your contact while I was doing a private research on the Internet 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. Mac Makuleke the son of Late Mr. Ernest Makuleke, who was the "Chairman" of the farmer’s co-operation in Zimbabwe.
During the current `Crisis against the farmers of the Zimbabwe by supporters of our president Robert Mugabe to claim all the white owned farms in our country, he ordered all the white farmers to surrender their farms to his party members and their followers. My father was one of the best farmers in the country and knowing that he did not support the president’s political ideology, the president supporters invaded my father’s farm burnt down everything, killed him and confiscated all his investments.
Before the death of my father, he took me to South Africa to deposit the sum of US$13.5 Million United States Dollars with a Security &Finance Company, as he knew the looming danger in Zimbabwe. The money was deposited as gem of precious stones to avoid much demurrage from the Security Company. This money was meant for buying of new machineries and chemical for farms and establishment of new farms in Lesotho and Swaziland.
my family and I moved to South Africa where we are currently residing as asylum seekers. Of late, when we decided to invest this money here in South Africa, we discovered that the laws of this country prohibit asylum seekers the right to investment or to operate any form of bank account. Hence I contacted you to assist us in transferring this money out of South Africa to your overseas account for our investment.
I must let you know that this business is 100% risk-free. The nature of your business does not necessarily matter in this transaction. So, if you are willing and interested to assist us, my family and I have agreed to give you 20% of the total sum for your assistance, 75% will be for my family investment in your country and the remaining 5% will be mapped out for all expenses we may incur during the course of the transaction. Note that you would also assist us in investing our own share of the money in your country.
If you are interested to assist us in this business, we need your urgent reply through the above Telephone and Fax numbers. Do not forget to include your private telephone and fax numbers for easier communication.
Please, treat this business proposal with absolute confidentiality. Best Regards, Mac Makuleke _________________________________________________________________Get the ultimate real-time chat experience - Windows Live Messenger! http://messenger.live.com
