URGENT AND CONFIDENTIAL ASSISTANCE .
You may be surprised to receive this letter from me since you do not
know mepersonally.I got your contact through the NETHERLANDS CHAMBER OF
COMMERCE AND INDUSTRY, hence i took the initiative of writing you.
Please accept my apology for intruding into your privacy or for any
inconvineces that my letter might caused.
I am LESLIE MUSHASHA, the son of MAWA MUSHASHA, one of the few black
farmers in Zimbabwe who was recently murdered in the land dispute in
This land problem arose when the Zimbabwean President Mr. Robert Mugabe
introduced a new Land Act Reform wholly affecting the rich white farmers
and some few black farmers, and this caused a rampage and indiscriminate
killing by some Zimbabwean war veterans and street urchins in the
society,as a result of this a lot of people were killed and my father
happened to be one of them.It is against this background that my family
and I fled Zimbabwe for fear of our lives and out of fear of been sent
to one of Mugabe’s military camp against our will by Mugabe’s militial
men and inventually turtured and kill that we decided to seek asylum in
the Netherlands where we are currently staying as political refugee.
Before the death of my father, he deposited with a security company here
in the NETHERLANDS the sum of US $ 18.6 million Dollars (Eighteen
million,Six Hundred thousand United dollars) and I am his next of Kin
which is the more reason why my wife and myself have choosen to seek
asylum here in the Neherlands to futher enable us to lay claim to this
funds. This money was deposited by my father in a box as family
valuables to avoid much demurrage and sundry charges from the security
company. This money according to my father was meant for the purchase of
new machines and chemicals for the Farms and also the establishment of
new farms in Swaziland.
My family and I have decided to seek for a viable partner that will help
us to invest this funds profitably in a viable business venture since
the law of Netherlands prohibits anyone applying for refugee status ( or
seeking asylum) to open any bank account or be involved in any financial
transaction throughout the territorial zone of The Netherlands,until
such time as the application is deemed successful or granted by the
Relevant Dutch Authorities. I am saddled with the responsibility of
seeking a bussiness partner who will front for us and take charge of
this funds. The dutch authority are not aware that we have such funds
with the security company and we intend to keep this as top secret as it
will affect our asylum status. please note that this transaction is 100%
risk free as I am in possesion of all the relevant document relating to
the funds. i.e THE CERTIFICATE OF DEPOSIT AND PERSONAL IDENRIFICATION
CODE OF THE FUNDS. Please be inform at this stage that my family and I
have also decided to give you 25% of the tottal funds for your
assistance and 70% will be invested for us in any profitable business
that you think is viable and 5% will be for any cost incurred in the
cause of this transaction. please note that if this percentage is not
agreeable to you we are still open to suggestion and further discussion.
If you accept to assist me and my family please contact me through this
e-mail adress email@example.com immidiately for more
Thanking you in anticipation of your co-operation.
