Dear Sir,

You may be surprised to receive this letter from me
since you do not know me personally. The purpose of my
introduction is that I am Mbeki Salingo, the first son
of MERIMBE TUTU SALINGO ,the most popular black farmer
in Zimbabwe who was recently murdered in the land
dispute in my country.

I got your contact through network online hence
decided to write you. Before the death of my father,
he had taken me to Johannesburg to deposit
the sum of US8.5 Million (Eight Million, Five Hundred
United States dollars)in one of the private security
company, as he foresaw the looming danger in Zimbabwe
this money was deposited in a box as gemstones to
avoid much demurrage from security company. This
amount was meant for the purchase of new machines and
chemicals for the Farms and establishment of new farms
in Swaziland. This land problem
came when Zimbabwean President Mr.Robert Mugabe
introduced a new Land Act Reform wholly affected the
rich white farmers and some few black farmers.And this
resulted to the killing and mob action
by Zimbabwean war veterans and some lunatics in the
society. In fact a lot of people were killed
because of this Land reform Act for which my father
was one of the victims.

It is against this background that, I and my family
fled Zimbabwe for fear of our lives and are currently
staying in Spain where we are seeking
political asylum and moreso have decided to
transfer my father^Òs money to a more reliable foreign
account. since the law of Spain prohibits a
refugee (asylum seeker) to open any bank account or to
be involved in any financial transaction throughout
the territorial zone of Spain, As the eldest son
of my father, I am saddled with the responsibility of
seeking a genuine foreign
account where this money could be transferred without
the knowledge of my government who are bent on taking
everything we have got. The South African
government seems to be playing along with them. I am
faced with the dilemma of moving this amount of money
out of South Africa for fear of going through the same
experience in future, both countries have similar
political history. As a businessman,I am seeking for a
partner who I have to entrust my future and of my
family in his hands, I must let you know that this
transaction is risk free. If you accept to assist me
and my family,all I want you to do for me, is to
arrangements with the security company to clear the
consignment(funds) from their afiliate office here in
Spain as i have already given directives for
the consignment to be brought to Spain from
South Africa.But before then all modalities will have
to be put in place e.g change of ownership of the
consignment and This money I intend to use for

I have two options for you. Firstly you can choose to
have certain percentage of the money for nominating
your account for this transaction.
Or you can go into partnership with me for the proper
profitable investment of the money in your country.
Whichever the option you want, feel free to notify me.
I have also mapped out 5% of this money for all kinds
of expensesincurred in the process of this
transaction. If you do not prefer a partnership I am
willing to give you 15% of the money while the
remaining 80% will be for my investment in your
country. Contact me with my private E-mail
address(mbekisalingo@zwallet.com) while I implore you
to maintain the absolute secrecy required in this


Yours Faithfully,
Mbeki Salingo
