FROM: MR. John Harwood


Attention: PRESIDENT/CEO. 

My name is MR. John Harwood, the elder son of MR. Williams Harwood of
Zimbabwe, I know that it might be a surprise to you where I got your
contact address, as you don't know me in person, I got your contact
address through a research I made here from South African Chamber of
Commerce and Industry. During the current crises against 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 to
surrender their farms to his party members and their followers. 

My father was one of the best farmers in the country and knowing that he
did not support the president political ideology, the president supporters
invaded my father farm burnt down everything, killed him and confiscated
all his investments, After the death of my father, my mother and I with my
younger brother decided to move out of Zimbabwe for the safety of our
lives. We took along with us the money my father kept in a safe in my
mother&#8217;s house, which amounted the Sum of (US$23M) Twenty Three
Million United States Dollars to the Republic of South Africa where we
have deposited it as personal valuables in a security company and seek for
political asylum. 

My self and my mother have decided to contact any reliable overseas firm
who could assist us to transfer this money out of South Africa, because we
as asylum seeker here in South Africa cannot open a non-resident account
through which this fund will be channelled out to your nominated overseas
account. If my proposal is considered, for assisting us to transfer this
money out of South Africa into your personal or company account in your
country, we will offer you 20% of the total fund based on negotiation and
5% of the total fund will be set aside to cover any expenses incurred
during this transaction both from your side and over here, then the
remaining 75% will be for me and my family to invest in your country under
your assistance. 

Confidential and trust is highly required for the completion of this
project. Fell free to reply me on the above contact details and please do
include your private contact details as well.

Kind regards,

MR. John Harwood
