Dear Sir/Madam,

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 Mr. PATRICK ZULU the son of Late Mr. Williams ZULU, who was the “Chairman” of the farmer’s co-operation in Zimbabwe.

My Father 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 Father, we decided to move out of ZIMBABWE because our lives were in danger because of the money that my father kept in his hidden safe in our house. The amount contained in the safe is US$28 Million 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, his is a Major Share Holder of companies in Zimbabwe. After my Father died we moved to South Africa and deposited 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 this fund to his account oversea and for the safety of our family.

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 20% of the total fund for accepting to assist us, I shall be glad to give you more clarification on the modalities
needed for smooth successful completion of this transaction.

I anticipate your quick response.

Best regard.


(For and On behalf of my family)
