Dear Friend, My alternative emailaddress:email@example.com PROPOSAL FOR URGENT BUSINESS ASSISTANCEI know you will be surprise to read from me, but please consider this letter as a request from a family in dare need of assistance.I am Mr. JOHN PATRICK the only son of late Mr. RICHARD PATRICK of Zimbabwe, presently residing in Burkina Faso.
On behalf of my widowed mother RITA PATRICK,I decided to solicit for your assistance to move the sum of $10.5million Dollars (Ten million five hundred thousand United States Dollars)inherited from my late father to your country for an onward investment under your kind control.
My father and his foriegn partner was killed during the current war against farmers in Zimbabwe from the support of our present HEAD OF STATES President ROBERT MUGABE to claim all the white owned farms to his NPF PARTY MEMBERS.
He ordered all the white farmers to surrender all their farms to his party members and followers. My father was one of the best farmers in our country and because he did not support Mugabes ideas, Mugabes supporters invaded my fathers farms and burnt down every thing in the farm, killed my father and his partner and made away with a lot of items in my fathers farm.
Before my fathers death, he had deposited with one of the security and finance companies in Burkina Faso, Africa the sum of US$10.5 million (Ten million five hundred thousand United States Dollars).After the death of my father, we decided to move to the Burkina Faso where he had deposited the money with Security Company as valuables.
We decided to contact an oversea firms and companies that can assist us to move this money out of Burkina Faso, because as asylum seekers we are not allowed to operate any bank account within Burkina Faso.
We have agreed to offer you 20% of total sum for your assistance, 5% has been mapped out for any expenses that may be incurred in the course of this transaction and 75%will be for me and my family to invest in your country.
Note that this transaction is 100% risk free and absolutely confidential. Waiting for your urgent responds. Thanks and God bless.
