During the current crisis against the farmers in Zimbabwe by the Supporters of president ROBERT MUGABE, to claim all white owned farms in the country, he Ordered all white farmers to surrender their farms to his party members and his supporters. My father was one of the black farmers that worked along side with the White farmers and opposed the president action towards the white farmers. My father being well known for his relationship with the white farmers, the president supporters invaded my fatherís farm and destroyed everything my father was at the same time killed on the process of fighting back the invaders. The president gave order to confiscate all our properties including the farms. After the incident, my mother and my younger sister decided to move out of Zimbabwe for the safety of their life. I was working in Sierra Leone when my father died, I was forced to return home for the funeral my father's attorney notified me and my mother about my fathers will with his chambers. When I was going through the will, I discovered that my late father had used his position as the treasurer of farmer's cooperative society of Zimbabwe to make some money, which he brilliantly transferred and deposited with a reputable security company in South Africa. He deposited this money as consignment / family valuables; the security company does not know that this consignment contains cash money except my father's attorney. The amount involved is US $15MILLION UNITED STATES DOLLARS, my mother and I have agreed and decided to transfer the money in question to a reliable and humanist person /company for investment, as we do not have Intention of going back to Zimbabwe, secondly, we do not have knowledge of international investment. Why I have solicited your assistance is because of the nature by which we entered in to South Africa we do not have the right to operate or maintain a foreign dominated account as refugees. I have in mind to compensate you with 20% of the money and 10% for expenses in the cost of the transaction. Then 70% will be for my family, for investment in your country, which you will be the supervisor and me.
