From: Miss Patrice Nichole 508 Statice Avenue. Eersterust Johannesburg South Africa. URGENT RESPONSE! Dear friend, Due to my careful search for an honest, reliable and sincere business Partner, I got your contact from Internet and I ask if you can be trusted not to break an agreement? Still, it took me time to make up my mind to contact you and to offer you this proposal of mine of which my whole life depends on. My name is Patrice Nichole, I am 19 years of age and a College Student. I am the only surviving child of Late Mr. George N. Nichole a Zimbabwe business Man, politician and Farmer. During the current crises against the farmers in Zimbabwe from the supporters of President Robert Mugabe to claim all the white-owned farms to his party members and his followers, he ordered all white farmers to surrender all farms to his party members and his followers. My Father is One of the most successful multi- farmers in our country and because he did not support Mugabe`s ideas, Mugabe's supporters invaded his farm and burnt everything in the farm, killing him and made away with a lot of items in my Father's farm. Before his death, my father had deposited with a bank in South Africa the sum of (USD $15.5 MILLION). (The documents of which he only made me aware of it.) After the death of my father, I and my mother decide to move to South Africa where we re-located under political asylum as a refugee to seek for foreign partner overseas that will assist me to transfer this money out from Africa for possible investments. All I am asking you is to assist us to transfer this money out of South Africa for investment purposes. The reason being that I and my mother are living in South Africa as political asylum seekers and the financial laws of South Africa do not allow Asylum Seekers certain financial rights, hence I shall be very grateful if you can assist us. We have agreed to offer you 20% of the total sum for your assistance as soon as the money is transferred to your account. I want truth and honest to be our watchword in this transaction and please treat this transaction with strictly confidential for the successful out come of it. All I want you to do are to furnish me with your personal phone and fax numbers for easy and urgent communication. Note that this transaction is 100% Risk free and absolutely Confidential. Contact me at email@example.com Thanks and God bless you. Sincerely Yours, Miss Patrice Nichole
