From:Lewis Mswati
Amsterdam-The Netherlands

Good Day,

You may be surprise to receive this email from me since you do not know me personally am Mr. Lewis 
Mswati the first son of Dr. Steven Mswati who was recently murdered in the land dispute in 
Zimbabwe. I was furnished with viable information from the world trade centre here in Amsterdam, 
the Netherlands and decided to write you.
Before the death of my father, he had taken me to Johannesburg to deposit the sum of Ten Million 
Five Hundred Thousand United States Dollars (US$10.500.00) in a diplomatic security company that 
move the money diplomatically to the Netherlands, as if he foresaw the looming danger in Zimbabwe. 
This money was deposited in a box as diplomatic items of high value to reduce the cost of 
transportation and to avoid much demurrage from the security company.

This amount was meant for the purchase of new machines and chemicals for farms and establishment of 
new farm land in Swaziland. This land became problem when Zimbabwe President Mr. Robert Mugabe, 
introduced a new land reform policy that wholly affected rich farmers mainly white and some new 
black farmers. This resulted to the killing and mob action by Zimbabwe war veterans and some 
lunatics in the society. In fact a lot of people were killed because of this land reform program 
which my father was one of the victims.
lt against this background that i am currently staying in Amsterdam as a refugee and to seek for a 
trust worthy individual/firm to advice me in making the rightful investment as well as to provide 
foreign account(s) where the funds will be lodged into since the law of the Netherlands prohibit a 
refugee(asylum seeker) to open account or to be involved in any financial transaction.
As the eldest son of my father, I am saddled with the responsibility of seeking a genuine foreign 
account where this money could be transferred. l am faced with the dilemma of investing this money 
in the Netherlands since the since their policy does not allow such investment from asylum seekers.
As regards your commission/remuneration ,i and my immediate family have decided to offer you 25% of 
the total sum immediately we clear the consignment from the diplomatic security vault and also set 
5% for all your expenses (i.e. telephone bills, traveling expenses, hotel bills and other 
miscellaneous expenses)
Note: l shall commit half of my share of the total sum into a joint venture project preferably in 
the purchase of real estate or other profitable business. Be assured that you stand no risk of any 
kind, as soon as i get your consent i will furnish you with the details and the contact of the 
security company and a face to face meeting will be arranged in other to know each other better.
Please contact me with the  Email address below or with my telephone number ,while i implore you to 
maintain the absolute secrecy required in this transaction.

Yours faithfully,
Mr. Lewis Mswati
