Hello dear,

Compliments of the season. I am Mrs. Margret Saleeby, a widow and a former civil servant from 
Zimbabwe. I got your contact from Chamber and Commerce office as I was searching for someone who 
will help me out of my present predicament,My late husband, Mr.Icheke Saleeby was the co-owner of 
an Agricultural firm and his partner happens to be among the white farmers that the dictator 
President of Zimbabwe, Robert Mugabe took over their farmlands and handed over to the blacks, 
despite all the pleas from the International Community, and members of the commonwealth country's 
Most of the company's assets, animal farms and milk industry were seized and confiscated by the 
tyrant President.
My late husband was a British citizen of African descent and we both lived in the company's staff 
quarters but our lives were threatened by agents of President Mugabe. Since then, my husband and I 
have been living in exile in Dakar - Senegal. My husband died last August as a result of cardiac 
arrest. A substantial amount of money was deposited in the finance house by my husband before his 
death through the help of the International Red Cross staff, because President Mugabe, placed order 
for the closure of the accounts of all the white farmers and no one is allowed to transfer more 
than ten thousand dollars abroad but luckily enough, I and my late husband along with some other 
farmers were assisted through diplomatic means with the help of the International Red Cross to send 
our money abroad.
The total Sum is Six million five hundred thousand United states dollars (US$6.500.000.), the money 
is part of our savings and what my husband inherited from his late father, from whom we took over 
the family business. The money was deposited safely in Dakar Senegal by my late husband before his 
death. All the documents to the deposition of the money are with me here in Senegal and with the 
finance firm also for Security reasons. I would like you to assist me to relocate the money to your 
country into any account of your choice or keep it for me in your safe custody until I am able to 
come to your country. I would like to invest the money into any lucrative business, you deem 
profitable and your assistance is highly needed in the areas of investment feasibility studies.
Hence I need your cooperation to secure this deposit which is as it stands now, the only hope of my 
survival as I have already lost my husband, coupled with my sickness and the situation of 
insecurity. Life is no more the same with me after all the lot I have gone through. Moreover, I 
wouldn't mind paying you some amount you will charge me up to 20% of the total money for your 
assistance in relocating and keeping the money for me as well as helping me to carry out proper 
investment. You keep 80% for me pending execution of the investment.
As a sick person, it will be difficult to handle this alone, hence I need your immense help, 
coupled with your distinguished business acumen and track record. Please, I would like you to come 
to my assistance, I am a lonely widow and in utter confusion and distress.
This business is solely between two of us and should there be any need for a third party, I want 
you to urgently contact me so that i will know the next person you have chosen as there is every 
needed necessity for me to be fully aware of any ongoing improvement regarding this matter as this 
money stands for my only source of financial survival now. I am scared that if any one gets to know 
about this, he might take advantage of my helpless situation. to diverted this fund or sit on the 
money without helping me to manage it as planed, so please if your willing to help kindly contact 
me very urgently,
Best wishes and have a nice day.

Mrs. Margret Saleeby
