Dear Friend,

Before you proceed reading my mail please do go through this webpage   
for more details You  
may be surprised to receive this message from me since you don't  know
me in person, but for the purpose of introduction,  I am MR.DAVID     
OLDS, a citizen of Zimbabwe, the son of late MR.MARTIN OLDS(A Farmer)  
who was murdered in a land dispute in ZIMBABWE.

I got your contact through the Thailand Information Exchange Online,   
and then I decided to write you. My late father was among the few   
black 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.

Before the death of my father, he deposited the sum of Five Million US
Dollars ($5M) with a security company during when he went to Thailand  
to purchase his farm machinery equipment, as if he foresaw the looming

danger in Zimbabwe. The money was deposited as a gem / precious stone  
to avoid seize and much demurrage from the security organization.

This money was earmarked for the purchase of new machinery and   
chemicals for the farms and the establishment of new farms in Lesotho  
and Swaziland. This land problem arose when President R. MUGABE   
introduced a new land Act, which wholly affects the white rich farmers
and some few blacks vehemently condemned the 'MODUS OPERANDI' adopted  
by the government.

This resulted to rampant killing and mob actions. I and my family who  
are currently staying in Bangkok Thailand as a refugee asylum seeker,  
have decided to transfer this money to a foreign country where we can  
invest it. You will read more stories about President Mugabe's brutal  
acts by visiting. This website:

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 view of this, I cannot invest the fund in Bangkok,   
Thailand. Moreover, the Thailand monetary policy/law does not allow
such investment by an asylum seeker or refugee.

I must let you know that this transaction is 100% 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 render the needed assistance, endeavor to contact me   
through the above telephone or email address. I also need your private
telephone and fax numbers for quick communication.

Please Remember that this transaction is highly confidential. Expect
your reply soonest.

Best regards.

For the family.
