My Client was one of the best farmers in the countryand knowing that he
did not support the President political ideology, the president supporters
invaded my Client's farm and burnt down everything, killed himand confiscated
all his investments incuding his bankaccounts. After the death my client,
instantly familytook this as taboo and they were were ostracized fromthe
society, the family lost all our friends for fearof the government of Robert
Mugabe;The wife of my client called me for immediate actionto see the funds
left in their home is taken away by a major top secret link.

Where I was shown underground basement and showed me a cleverly constructed
secretstore room, in which were 1 large iron box of about 3feet square each.
She produced the keys, and opened each box to reveal bundles and bundles
of US 100 Dollar bills! totally US $15 MILLON!. I demanded an explanation
and she said that my father hid the moneybefore the new 100 dollar bill
was introduce! that my client has made this money and stock it in this store
room, and has been making arrangement to move these money to Europe, America
or Asia for investing and relocation to where they can spend the rest of
their life before the death of client, because the government of Robert
Mugabe has been fighting him and other farmers that its not wise to invest
further hereor deposit large money with the banker in Zimbabwe.Presently
,the funds are been deposited in a security company for safe keeping until
we find a reputable person that will be able to make exchange of the old
dollar notes in his or her location. Obviously, my client made this money
from his lucrative farming job and I will never let his hard earned money
be taking away by this government or anybody.
