Dear Friend,

Before you proceed reading my mail please do go through this webpage
for more details
You may be surprised to receive this message from me since you don't
know me in person, but for the purpose of introduction, I am MR.DAVID
OLDS, a citizen of Zimbabwe, the son of late MR.MARTIN OLDS(A Farmer )
who was murdered in a land dispute in ZIMBABWE.

I got your contact through the Thailand Information Exchange Online,
and then I decided to write you. My late father was among the few black
Zimbabwean rich farmers murdered in cold blood by the agent of the
ruling government of President ROBERT MUGABE for his alleged support and
sympathy for Zimbabwean opposition party.

Before the death of my father, he deposited the sum of Five Million US
Dollars (USD$5M) with a security company during when he went to
Thailand to purchase his farm machinery equipment, as if he foresaw the
looming danger in Zimbabwe. The money was deposited as a gem / precious stone
to avoid seize and much demurrage from the security organization.

This money was earmarked for the purchase of new machinery and
chemicals for the farms and the establishment of new farms in Lesotho and
Swaziland. This land problem arose when President R. MUGABE introduced a new
land Act, which wholly affects the white rich farmers and some few
blacks vehemently condemned the 'MODUS OPERANDI' adopted by the

This resulted to rampant killing and mob actions. I and my family who
are currently staying in Bangkok Thailand as a refugee asylum seeker,
have decided to transfer this money to a foreign country where we can
invest it. You will read more stories about President Mugabe's brutal
acts by visiting. This website:

I am faced with the dilemma of investing this amount of money in
Thailand but the financial law and Regulations of the Republic of Bangkok,
Thailand do not permit us financial rights to such huge sum of mone y. In
view of this, I cannot invest the fund in Bangkok, Thailand. Moreover,
the Thailand monetary policy/law does not allow such investment by an
asylum seeker or refugee.

I must let you know that this transaction is 100% risk free and the
nature of your business does not necessarily matter. So if you are willing
to assist us, I and my family have agreed to give you 20% of the total
money, 40% will be for a joint business venture I will be doing with
you and another 40% will be for the family, which we shall also invest
in your country. Therefore, if you are willing and interested to render
the needed assistance, endeavor to contact me through the above
telephone or email address. I also need your private telephone and fax numbers
for quick communication.

Please Remember that this transaction is highly confidential. Expect
your reply soonest as soon as you confirm your interest please reply me
through this email address: to enable me
recieve your massege.

Thanks for your understanding.
