With due respect, trust and humility, I write to you this proposal, which I believe would be of great interest to you. I find your contact while I was doing a private research on the Internet for a reliable and capable foreign partner that will assist my family and I to transfer fund to his personal or private account and for investment purpose. I am MRS.FELICIA DAN the wife of Late MR. OGELE DAN, who was the "Chairman" of the farmers co-operation in Zimbabwe .
My Late Husband was among the few blacks that were murdered in cold blood by the President Robert Mugabe Administration during the land dispute that just happened in Zimbabwe . After the death of my Husband, we decided to move out of ZIMBABWE because our lives were in danger because of the money that my husband kept in his hidden safe in our house. The amount contained in the safe is US $14.5M (fourteen million five hundred thousand US dollars).
This money was meant for the purchase of new machines and chemicals for the farms and establishment of new farms in Swaziland . Before his death, He is a Major Share Holder of companies in Zimbabwe . After my Husband died, we moved to South Africa and deposited this fund to his account oversea and for the safety of our family. This money in a security company in a box as valuables belonging to our foreign partner pending when we see somebody that will assist us transfer the said Fund.
We are presently in South Africa as Refugee (Asylum Seekers) and as such the law of South Africa does not permit us to operate or open any bank account here in South Africa or be involved in any financial transaction with the bank. That is why we contacted you to assist us in this transaction.
We are ready to compensate you with 30% of the total fund for accepting to assist us, contact me on the above phone number indicating your interest as soon as possible, on receiving your acceptance, I will be glad to give you more clarification on the modalities needed for smooth successful completion of this transaction.
I anticipate your quick response.
