Dear: Sir /Madam,
My name is Mr Fekeke Solomon from the republic of Zimbabwe, the first son of Chief Arnold Solomon It might be a surprise to you as to how I got your contact, I got your contact from the South African Chamber of Commerce in Johannesburg During the current war against the farmers in Zimbabwe, from the support of President Robert Mugabe, in his effort to chase the white farmers out of the Country, he ordered all the white farmers to surrender their farms to his party members and his followers.
My father was one of the best and successful farmers in the country then, and formerly finance minister of Robert Mugabe¢s administration, but he did not support the idea of dispossessing the white farmers of the land. Because of this, his farm was invaded and burnt by the Government supporters. In the course of the attack, my father fall a
Stroke, and the invaders made away with a lot of items from my father’s farm and our family house was totally destroyed.
My Mother almost pass away after a heart attack. Before the illness, he drew my attention to the sum of USD $ 16, 5 Million United States Dollars, which he had deposited with a security company in South Africa during his tenure as the finance minister of Zimbabwe .
My sister and I decided to move to South Africa for our own security, for our lives were in danger. The contents of the consignment were stored as important personal valuable by my father using his diplomatic impunity then.
