MR JOHN THEMBA
JOHANNESBURG, SOUTH AFRICA.
I am MR JOHN THEMBA, First and only son of late CHIEF FELIX THEMBA who was murdered by the Zimbabwean veterans and irate black people. Before the death of my father on the 1st of Oct 2003, he was a Prosperous Tobacco and Coffee farmer in Zimbabwe and one of the major sponsor/ Financier of the opposition party - Movement For Democratic Change (MDC)in Zimbabwe . He
I am writing you from Johanessburg , South Africa . I got your co ntact email address through the South African International Information Exchange Centre and decided to write you. I write to solicit for your special assistance to a family shattered by a tyrannical government led by the President dictator ROBERT MUGABE and his(ZANU-PF) ruling party.
I am probably of the conviction that you are aware of the present situation in my country Zimbabwe sequel to the land and farm land crisis in Zimbabwe, the government secretly sponsored the war veterans and some irate party members to disposes the land being occupied by whites and some rich farmers who are opposed to his consistent stay in power and his radical and unnecessary reforms targeted at his political opponents.
This action has led to the killing of some members of the opposition party including my beloved father (CHIEF FELIX THEMBA),who did not support this ill-fated action. But before the death of my father and the consistent threats to his life, he anticipated some danger s and so he smuggled out the sum of US$9.5m(NINE MILLION, FIVE HUNDRED THOUSAND UNITED STATES DOLLARS), to South Africa since it is the nearest neighboring country and deposited it in a security/finance company with the intention of using it for the purchase of New farm machinery and chemicals for Agricultural purposes in South Africa as well as a purchase of some hectares of land in Swaziland.
On the 1st Oct, 2003, the war veterans and some supporters of (ZANU-PF) ruling party trooped into our compound and axed him(my father) to death. Since then, they have been terrorizing me and my widowed mother, but we succeeded to work for our escape to a neighboring country, South Africa as a political asylum seeker (refugee).
But our position in South Africa does not permit me to open an account or normalize this fund for any meaningful business transaction in South Africa since I doesn't have a south Africa Identity Card. That is why I want this fund to be t ransferred into your Nominated account so that you will assist me to invest it in your country.
Hence, if you agree to assist us, we have two options for you, we have agreed to go into partnership with you and your family or in the alternative, we offer you 20%of the money for your assistance, 5%will be for the possible expenses incurred in the process of this transaction, while 75%will be for our family investment in your country, through your assistance.
I want you to understand that this fund is purely a family fund/ money and not drug money, nor could it be classified as government fund or Money Laundering affairs and it could be substantiated by relevant authorities by our attorney. It is Family fund but termed confidential because I do not want myself to be traced to where I'm presently. If you are interested in assisting us, kindly contact me with this email address, and phone number above. Right now, I am presently in south Africa with my widowed mot her and my younger sister and the whole of my family sequel to the tensed political situation and the fear for our lives in Zimbabwe . I need your urgent and confidential response.
MR JOHN THEMBA
(For the Family)
