FROM: Kenneth NDLUVE 41,SMITH AVENUE,ROODERPORT JOHANNESBURG SOUTH AFRICA PHONE=27-73-544-0073INVITATION FOR PARTNERSHIP
Dear Sir,You may be surprised to receive this letter from me since you do not know me personally,I am Kenneth NDLUVE ,the first son of MR Charles NDLUVE, who was recently murdered in the land dispute in Zimbabwe. I was furnished with viable information from the INTERNATIONAL TRADE CENTRE here in Johannesburg and decided to contact you.
Before the death of my father,he had taken me to Johannesburg to deposit the sum of TEN MILLION FIVE HUNDRED THOUSAND UNITED STATES DOLLARS (USD10.5M) in a security company as if he foresaw the looming danger in Zimbabwe. This amount was meant for the purchase of new machines and chemicals for the farms and establishment of a new farm in Swaziland.
This land problem came when the President of Zimbabwe MR ROBERT MUGABE introduced a new Land Act which wholly affected the rich white and black farmers. This resulted to the killing and mob action by the Zimbabwean war veterans and some lunatics in the society.Infact, a lot of people have been killed because of this land-reformed act of which my father was one of the victims.
It is against this background,that my family and I, who are currently staying in South Africa decided to transfer my fatherís money to a foreign account since the law of South Africa prohibits a refugee (asylum seeker) to open any bank account or to be involved in any financial transaction.
As the eldest son of my father I am saddled with the responsibility of seeking a genuine foreign account into which this money could be transferred to, without the knowledge of my government who are bent on taking everything we have got, and South Africa seems to be playing along with them.
I am faced with the dilemma of investing this amount of money in South Africa for fear of going through the same experience in the future since both counties have the same political history. More so, the South Africa Foreign Exchange policy does not allow such investment as an asylum seeker.
As a businessman, I have to entrust my future and of my family in his hands, I must let you know that this transaction is risk free. If you accept to assist me and my family, all I want you to do is to make arrangements and come to Johannesburg, South Africa, so that you can open a non-resident account which will aid us in transferring the money into any account you will nominate overseas.
This money I intend to use for investment. I have two options for you, firstly, you can choose to have a certain percentage of the money for nominating your account for this transaction, or you can go into partnership with me for the proper profitable investment of the money in your
country.Whichever the options you want, feel free to notify me. Please you are interested to assist us,reply immediately by leaving your direct phone and fax numbers for better communication.I shall discuss with you the percentgae that due to you for this kind assistance,Contact me with the above phone and the email Adress + email@example.com, immidiate reply while I implore you to maintain secrecy required in this transaction. And no matter the level of transaction we are in, You must keep this business secret and confidential,Please.
God bless you for your assistance. Thanks for your Coperation Sincerely yours, Keneth NDLUVE _________________________________________________________________Fast. Simple. Personal. Visit the all-new MSN South Africa. http://za.msn.com/
