Dear Sir,
Naturally, this letter will come to you as a surprise since we have not met,coupled with the fact that so many miscreants have taken possession of the Internet to facilitate their nefarious deeds,thereby making it extremely difficult for genuine purposes.Permit me however to introduce myself. I am a son to late Davies, a white Zimbabwean Farmer, the owner of Diary farms limited in Zimbabwe.My late father own three tobacco farms in Chipinge, and he was also majority owner of Glendevon Farm also situated in Chipinge, in Zimbabwe before is death.
Since the death of my parents,I am contacting you as the need to for me to have a foreign partner in your country has become necessary due to my plans to relocate to that country so that I can purchase some lands to start farming all over again as the present political instability in Zimbabwe, does not encourage financial investment as the environment is no longer condusive for farming investment and most of all security is not insured, just as reported by international media.
This problem started when the Zimbabwean government under the leadership of President Robert Mugabe announced a degree on May 31st 2000 to seize more than 849 white-owned farms. During these periods, as reported by international media and the CNN, more than 6 white farmers were killed in which my father was involved, the government is not stopping at this, as just recently the government have asked all white-farmers to give up their farms to black farmers or risk going to prison.
So far, more than 1,400 white owned farms have been invaded and confiscated, as well as claiming the properties of the farmers. Also, about 133 white farmers arrested for defying the orders to leave their farms under the controversial land reform programm of the government.(IT WAS DURING THIS STRUGGLE THAT MY PARENTS LOST THEIR LIFES).
Having lived in this country Zimbabwe with my late parents for more than 35 years, I have no other country to go to,Therefore, I decided to contact you, for your assistance, so that I can divert the property left behind for me from my parents in Zimbabwe to a more stable country as yours.
Also, I must re-iterate the importance of having a citizen of your country to front for me, since I intend to purchase some lands for farming, I do not know much about your land-ownership laws, I thought it wise to seek the help of a citizen to act as proxy for me.
For this purpose, I have put in an (INTERNATIONAL REMITTANCE VAULT) all monies from the sale of my parents farming equipments (including tractors etc) and also all financial profits which all in total amounted to US$8.5Million, I will upon receiving your consent prepare every document to enable you receive this money on my behalf, pending my arrival to meet with you in your country so that we can both make further arrangements with regards to the purchase of lands.

I am presently in a refugee camp.If you are interested and willing to assist me, you should please forward to me via my email address the following information so that I can reach you:
I am waiting urgently for your response, while also requesting that you treat this matter in strict privacy.Kindly get back to me on my private email address:
Cheers and God bless. 

Best Regards,
