<DIV><STRONG><FONT size=3D3>You may be surprised to receive this message fr=
om me since you don't know me in person, but for the purpose of introductio=
n,&nbsp; I am MR.DAVID&nbsp; OLDS, a citizen of Zimbabwe, the son of late M=
R.MARTIN OLDS(A Farmer ) who was murdered in a land dispute in ZIMBABWE.<BR=
&nbsp;<BR>I got your contact through the Thailand Information Exchange Onl=
ine, and then I decided to write you. My late father was among the few blac=
k 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.<BR>&nbsp;<BR>Before the death of my fathe=
r, he deposited the sum of Five Million US Dollars ($5M) with a security co=
mpany during when he went to Thailand to purchase his farm machinery equipm=
ent, as if he foresaw the looming danger in Zimbabwe. The money was deposit=
ed as a gem / precious stone to avoid seize and much demurrage from the sec=
urity organization.<BR>&nbsp;<BR>This money was earmarked for the purchase =
of new machinery and chemicals for the farms and the establishment of new f=
arms in Lesotho and Swaziland. This land problem arose when President R. MU=
GABE introduced a new land Act, which wholly affects the white rich farmers=
 and some few blacks vehemently condemned the 'MODUS OPERANDI' adopted by t=
he government. <BR>&nbsp;<BR>This resulted to rampant killing and mob actio=
ns. I and my family who are currently staying in Bangkok Thailand as a refu=
gee asylum seeker,&nbsp; have decided to transfer this money to a foreign c=
ountry where we can invest it. You will read more stories about President M=
ugabe's brutal acts by visiting. This website: </FONT></STRONG><A href=3D"h=

nbsp; <BR>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 v=
iew of this, I cannot invest the fund in Bangkok, Thailand. Moreover, the T=
hailand monetary policy/law does not allow such investment by an asylum see=
ker or refugee.<BR>&nbsp;<BR>I must let you know that this transaction is 1=
00% 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 re=
nder the needed assistance, endeavor to contact me through the above teleph=
one or email address. I also need your private telephone and fax numbers fo=
r quick communication. </FONT></STRONG></DIV>
