Due to my careful search for an honest, reliable and sincere business partner, I got your contact from internet and I ask if you can be trusted not to break an agreement? Still, it took me time to make up my mind to contact you and to offer you this proposal of mine of which my whole life depends on.
My name is Mrs. Deborah Mpenza , the wife of Late Mr. George Mpenza. A Zimbabwean business Man, politician and Farmer. During the current crises against the farmers in Zimbabwe from the supporters of President Robert Mugabe to claim all the white-owned farms to his party members and his followers, he ordered all white farmers to surrender all farms to his party members and his followers. My late husband was One of the most successful multi- farmers in our country and because he did not support Mugabes ideas, Mugabe's supporters invaded his farm and burnt everything in the farm, killing him and made away with a lot of items in my husband's farm. Before his death, my husband had deposited with a security company in South Africa the sum of (US$6 Million - Six Million United States Dollars)
After the death of my husband , I decided to move to Republic of South Africa where I re-located under political asylum as a refugee to seek for foreign partner overseas that will assist me to move this money out of the security company to his country for investment purpose.
As an asylum seeker I am not allowed to Invest or operate any Bank Account within South Africa. That is why I need this urgent help from you to assist me to transfer the funds out of South Africa and also to assist us in investing the funds in your country. I have agreed with my son-Lucas to compensate you out of the total sum for your assistance as soon as the money gets into your account. I want truth and honest to be our watch word in this transaction for the successful out comes of it.
Please reply me as soon as possible if you are willing to work with me. Thanks and God bless you.Sincerely Yours,Mrs. Deborah Mpenza
