Dear Friend,
I hope that this email will find you in good health and sound mind. As we progresses,it is relevant that I tell you more things about  myself and my family so that you will become acquainted with us.I am the only child of late Mr.David Gomani, a big time farmer from Zimbabwe.Due to the political problems in Zimbabwe and as a result of president Robert Mugabe's introduction of new 'land act reform' that is wholly affecting the rich white farmers and the few rich black farmers, all white farmers were asked to surrender their farms to the government for re-distribution,in fact to his political party members and my late father though black was a big time farmer  and a strong member of an opposition party that did not support Mr Mugabe's policies.
President Robert Mugabe then ordered the police under his pay row to invade my father's farm.They killed my father and took away a lot of items from his farm and our house. After his death ,the Reverend of our church handed over an envelop which contains some documents with instructions from my father that I and my mother should leave Zimbabwe in case anything happen to him.Also found in the envelop was a deposit slip - confirming a cash deposit totaling ten million United States dollars [US$67m] deposited in a security company here in cote d`ivoire west africa.
This violent and barbaric act by Mr Mugabe has since led to the death of many innocent people.We were continually threatened after my father died.We resisted for a while, but when the danger became unbearable,we fled Zimbabwe with the help of my father's close friend from England also a farmer who was living in Zimbabwe but left with his family following this ugly development.We have tried to reach him through the contact he gave us but so far to no avail.To ascertain the authenticity of my claims,I would like you to have a look at information pertaining this political crisis from Internet on the following websites below.
Actually, it took me a great courage before I was able to make up my mind to write you this proposal because I considered this medium as not being the most suitable especially as we have not met before but considering our condition of stay here, this means became the only avaliable option.I would like you to know that it is my family's desire that this  transaction when completed shall be of benefit to all the parties involved.We have affinity for the improvement of the less privileged having passed through a lot of difficulties associated with our exit from Zimbabwe to arrival here in Senegal for a temporary asylum and also to work towards retrival of this deposit to your care for a joint investment in any business which will be of benefit to every party concerned since this deposit is now the only thing left for us out of all my late dad's possessions - having lost all to the political crisis.
It is my family's interest to invest  through your guardiance US$67 million.As to what we are exactly seeking from you,we just need your unflinching support and assurance that you will not disappoint or let down the trust which we are about reposing on you.This is going to be our first experience in the fields of international transactions and investments.  Therefore,we shall rely solely on your advise and guidance as you well know the business environment within your country. Also,we will want you to understand that it will be our joy to set up a foundation in memory of my late father which shall be for the assistance of the needy.
As you may like to know, it is our wish that  70% of this fund be invested with you in the form of a joint investment  while 10% shall be set aside for us so as to help in our comfortable stay when we eventually relocate to your country, 15% shall be for you for your assistances in receiving the fund on our behalf and it's investment while 5% shall be set aside for any expenses,if any in executing this transaction.Finally,if you accept to assist us in this project,we will forever remain grateful to you On hearing from you,you will be updated with next step.Till then, I await to read from you very soon to enable us discuss further. Till then,do have a nice day.
Mr.Jones Gomani
