Mr Joshua Nkoma,

Good Day,
First and foremost, you can view and have a good look on this Website:
You will be surprised to read from me, but consider this letter as a geniuine request from a
family in dire need of your humble assistance. Firstly I must introduce myself, Iam Mr Joshua Nkoma. A Citizen of Zimbabwe, but Iam contacting you from Bangkok, Thailand where iam now sickening a political asylum.I got your contact from a Business Directory in Bangkok, Thailand Chambers of Commerce and industry.
Iam the Son of John Nkoma, a Wealthy Farmer and Senior Politician with the Opposition Political Party in my Country,Movement For Democratic Change (MDC).Our Wicked President Robert Mugabe Murdered my father, before I ran away from my country because I have become his next target to eliminate. My Father was a Freedom Fighter For  and a moving Force in the MDC, a party wanting to end the several years of Brutal Dictorship Government of President Robert Mugabe.
My Father was accused of assisting the white Farmers in fighting the Government. Few weeks after his arrest, he was reported Dead. The Government claimed he died of Heart Attack and his Body was never seen for proper Autopsy, they buried him in the Government cementry.My father"s associate Mr Martin Olds A White Farmer From Britain assisted me in fighting my Father"s Death through the Court and Media.
The Government saw us as a big treat to them and decided to eliminate us. Mr Olds was attacked and murdered in his House, but fortunately they came looking for me.I received the news and I left the country through the Boarder of South Africa to save my life before my arrival here in Bangkok Thailand.
Here is my reason for contacting you.My Father deposited a huge sum of money in the total sum of US$5.5m(Five Million Five Hundred Thousand United State Dollars) presently with a Private Security Company in Bangkok, Thailand. My Father Kept this Money in a Trunk Box in Disguise as family treasures and could not Bank them because of the  Situation in my country.
The government seized my father"s Farms and Banks Account before before his arrest and murdered.He told me everything concerning the funds while he was still in detention.This is why I need your assistance in securing the Funds there in your country, so that I can arrange on how to come over to your country, for investment of the Fund.Iam willing to Offer You 20% of the US$5.5M for assistance, 40% is for the Family, and the remaining 40% is for both of us, (You and I only), to enable us invest in any lucrative business of your choice in your country, base on your good advised and my True follow up.
Please, Sir/Madam, let me know if you can assist me, so that i can give you more details on how we shall proceed.
I await your urgent response.
Yours Truly,
Joshua Nkoma  (For the Family).
