MR. EDWARD TAIBU
JOHANNESBURG.

GOOD DAY,

MY NAME IS EDWARD TAIBU, THE SON OF MR. TERRY TAIBU OF ZIMBABWE. IT MIGHT BE A SURPRISE TO YOU HOW I GOT YOUR CONTACT. I GOT IT FROM SOUTH AFRICAN CHAMBERS OF COMMERCE. I AM CONTACTING YOU IN GOOD FAITH.

DURING THE CRISIS AGAINST THE FARMERS OF ZIMBABWE BY THE SUPPORTERS OF OUR PRESIDENT ROBERT MUGABE TO CLAIM ALL THE WHITE OWNED FARMS IN OUR COUNTRY. HE ORDERED ALL THE WHITE FARMERS IN THE COUNTRY TO SURRENDER THEIR FARMS TO HIS PARTY MEMBERS AND THEIR FOLLOWERS. MY FATHER WAS ONE OF THE BEST FARMER IN THE COUNTRY AND KNOWING THAT HE DID NOT SUPPORT THE PRESIDENT POLITICAL IDEOLOGY AND WAS TOTALLY AGAINST PRESIDENT MUGABE'S ACT AGAINST WHITE FARMERS. BECAUSE OF MY FATHER'S PROTEST AGAINST MUGABE, THE PRESIDENT TUGS INVADED OUR FARM AND BURNT DOWN EVERYTHING, KILLED MY FATHER AND CONFISCATED ALL HIS PROPERTIES AND INVESTMENTS. BEFORE THIS UNPLEASANT INCIDENT, MY FATHER AND MY MOTHER HAD ALREADY VISITED SOUTH AFRICA TO DEPOSIT THE SUM SEVEN MILLION, FIVE HUNDRED THOUSAND UNITED STATES DOLLARS ( US$7.5M) IN THE SAFE VAULT OF A SECURITY AND FINANCE COMPANY HERE IN JOHANNESBURG, SOUTH AFRICA.

THIS ACTION WAS TAKEN BECAUSE MY FATHER FELT THE GROWING TENSION ON THE FARM ISSUE BUT I GUESS HE NEVER ANTICIPATED THE TRAGEDY THAT BROUGHT TO HIS SUDDEN AND BRUTAL DEATH. AT THE TIME OF DEPOSITION, THE REAL CONTENT OF THE DEPOSIT WAS NOT DISCLOSED TO THE SECURITY COMPANY'S OFFICIAL. INSTEAD, IT WAS DEPOSITED AS FAMILY VALUABLES. VALUED FOR THE REAL CONTENT IN THE CONSIGNMENT.

AFTER THE BLOODY INCIDENT. ALL MY FAMILY MEMBERS HAS TO ESCAPE OUT OF ZIMBABWE FOR SAFETY OF OUR LIVES. WE SEEKED REFUGE HERE IN SOUTH AFRICA AND WE WERE PERMITTED TO RESIDE HERE AS POLITICAL REFUGEES UNDER SECTION ( 5.9 ). DUE TO OUR PRESENT UNPLEASANT CONDITION AND STATUS, MY MOTHER AND I ARE SERIOUSLY LOOKING FORWARD TO HAVE AN OVERSEA PARTNER THAT WILL ASSIST US WITH THE CONVENIENCES AND LEGAL TRANSFER OF THE FUND OUT OF SOUTH AFRICA.

IF MY PROPOSAL IS CONSIDERED FOR YOU, ASSISTING US TO TRANSFER THIS FUND TO YOUR COUNTRY. WE WILL OFFER YOU 25% OF THE TOTAL FUND, 75% WILL BE FOR MY FAMILY. WE MIGHT WISH TO INVEST A LARGE PORTION OF OURS IN YOUR COUNTRY UNDER YOUR SUPERVISION.

FOR DETAILED INFORMATION, YOU CAN CONTACT ME ON MY EMAIL. I WOULD APPRECIATE CONFIDENTIALITY AND HONESTY IN OUR CORRESPONDENCE. YOUR IMMEDIATE RESPONSE WILL BE HIGHLY APPRECIATED AND WELCOMED.

I WAIT TO HEAR FROM YOU. BE WITH GOD.

BEST REGARDS,
EDWARD TAIBU FOR THE FAMILY.
