Attn: Dear Sir/Madam,
Good day. This very confidential request should not come as a surprise to you.
But it is because of the nature of what is happening to me and my family urged me to contact you. I had already sent to you this same letter two weeks ago, but I am notsure if it did get to you since I have not heard from you.
My name is Frank Bongani, the second son of Mr.Thabo Bongani,of Beitbridge,Zimbabwe.At the height of the present political crises in our country, in which the white farmers in our country are being slained and ripped off of their belongings by the supporters of our president,Mr Robert G.Mugabe,in their efforts to reclaim all the white owned farms in our country.
My father and my elder brother were brutally slaimed to a painful death in their struggle to protect some white farmers who ran to take refuge in our farm. My father,during his life on earth was a prominent indigenous farmer and also trades on Diamond and Gold with some countries in Africa. He publicly opposes the crude policies and crime against humanity on the white farmers by Mr. Robert Mugabe and his followers.
After the death of my father and elder brother,I therefore decided to move my mother and younger sister to the Republic of South Africa for safety of there lives,while i am now hiding myself in Ukraine former Russia where i am presently seeking for Political Asylum,Temporarily.
During my fatherís life on earth, he had WILLED the sum of Fifteen million Six hundred Thousand United States dollars (US$15,600.000.00) to be shared between me and my elder brother before they met there untimely death on that faithful day.This he had deposited with a finance and security company in the Republic of South Africa from where he operates most of his Gold and Diamond trades to our country.
In view of this and as the only surviving son of my father,and with the present clamp down,killing and confiscation of assets of supporters of the white farmers presently in our country,I therefore humbly wish to notify you of my intention to use your name and address as my Trustee in lifting this money out of Africa finally,to the Europe office of the finance company,and also seek for your honest and trustworthy assistance to help me clear and accommodate this fund when it gets over there,before the money will be confiscated by the President Mugabeís regime.
My mother and myself have agreed to make the provisions;
1.That 30% of the total money will be given to you for your assistance in clearing and accommodating this fund.
2.That 10% of the total money will be set aside foraxation and any other expenses that might be incurred in the course of this transaction, while the remaining 60% will be for me and my family for our future investment purposes which will depend on your assistance.
Please I hope you will grant and view this very request with favour and much understanding of our situation now,also that you will be a very honest and reliable person to deal with.
Thanking you in anticipation of your urgent response!Emailme:
Best Regards
Frank Bongani
