It might be a surprise to you where I got your contact address, I got your address from the yahoo people finder, please don't be worried. During the last crisis against the farmers of Zimbabwe by the supporters of our resident Robert Mugabe to claim all the white owned farms in our country, he ordered all the white farmers to surrender their farms to his party members and their followers,my father was the treasurer of the Farmer's Association and one of the biggest farmer in the country, though is a black indigene but did not support the president?s political ideology, the president supporters invaded his farm burnt down everything, killed him and and my mother who where at the farm during the riot while me and my only sister where in school. The present government confiscated all my family investments. After the death of my parents, I and my sister decided to move out of Zimbabwe for the safety of our lives. We took along with us my family only source of funds which is vital document containing my father's foreign account worth US$5.2million in Europe, but me and my sister came to seek a plitical asylum in London. The funds are presently being kept away with a security finance firm here in Europe, but we have not been able to claim this funds because i'm not allowed to open an account due to my present political status, so i have decided to contact any reliable overseas firm/person who could assist us to transfer this money out of the account, because we as asylum seeker here cannot open a non-resident account through which this fund will be channeled out to your nominated overseas account SO We could sneek out of here and move to your country where we would invest this funds.
