Atten,SIR/MADAM I am Mrs Victoria Sipo the wife of Michael Sipo the slain Zimbabwean farmer. I got your contact email address while browsing through the website of business/investment opportunities in your country. The President of Zimbabwe, ROBERT MUGABE asked the wealthy mechanize farmers in the country to either financially support this brutal and dictatorial regime, or surrender their properties and flee the country. The farmers who refuted this order had their properties confiscated, chased away or killed. My husband happened to be one of the victims; his properties were invaded, the Presidentís loyalists looted his heavy-duty machineries and burnt down his structures. In the process that he was trying to defend his properties my husband was killed together with six other employees and security officers that worked for him. After my husband was killed, our lives were in danger and through the assistance of the United Nation workers that were assisting families in crisis; my so Mr Robert Sipo and I were taken across to the neighboring country South Africa as refugees. Before fleeing from my country I came along with a deposit agreement of US$10Million (Ten Million United States dollars) my husband deposited with a Private Security and Financial House in South Africa while he was alive, which he made me the next of kin/beneficiary. This fund was declared and deposited as family valuables with the security company. Due to security reasons, he did not want them to know the real content of the box since it is in cash form, he then deposited it under what is called Diplomatic Consignment of 100% non inspection origin which does not give the company right of inspection before acceptance for deposit. Being a refugee claimant here in South Africa, certain Immigration Law prohibits me from operating financial transactions and exchanges. A financial advicer therefore advised me to seek and negotiate for a reliable foreigner who could assist me to transfer this fund to their bank account in their country. I am therefore humbly asking for your assistance to help us to claim this funds on our behalf and also transfer it to any of your account you may wish overseas by acting as the trustee of the fund, which we will appoint you. The family has agreed that 30% of the fund shall be credited to you for your help. Another 5% will also be set aside for all transactional/out of the pocket expenses that will arise during the course of the transaction from you and us. If you may wish to go for a joint business venture with us since I intend to invest this money in your country that is also negotiable. Please show your interest by contacting me immediately through my son Robert either by telephone number or e-mail address as shown below. On behalf of my family, I thank you for your consideration. Best regards, 240 Mandela Square, Johannesburg, South Africa Mrs Victoria Sipo Email firstname.lastname@example.org contact my SON ROBERT SIPO Email:email@example.com TEL : +27 -82-361-6478
