Urgent Request for Business Partnership ;
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 to transfer funds to his/her personal or company bank account for investment purposes. I am John Garange, 27 years old, the first son of Late Mr. Peter Garange of blessed memory and the “Late Chairman” of the farmer’s co-operation in Zimbabwe .
My late father was among the few blacks that were murdered in cold blood by the President Robert Mugabe’s autocratic administration during the land dispute that just happened in Zimbabwe . After his death, we decided to move out from Zimbabwe because our live were in danger and insecure as my father was the target and we reasoned that our continued stay in Zimbabwe would eliminate our dear lives, thus we flew the country to South Africa.
Before his death, he went to South Africa and deposited the sum of Forty million United States Dollars (USD40m) in a private security company in Johannesburg . This money was meant for the purchase of new machines and chemicals for the farms and establishment of new farms in Swaziland and Lesotho . Before his death, he was also a major share holder of companies in Zimbabwe .
After he died, we moved to South Africa with all the necessary documents related to this fund. We are here now as asylum seekers and as such the laws of South Africa do not permit us to operate or open any bank account here or be involved in any financial transaction with any bank. That is why we contacted you so that we would transfer the money (now in security company) to your bank account as we have planned for the successful transfer.
We are ready to compensate you with 10% of the total funds for accepting to assist us, 5% will be used for any unforeseen situation during the transfer while 85% will be for my family’s investment in your country.
Should you be ready to assist us as explained, kindly contact me on the above phone number or email me on firstname.lastname@example.org
On receiving your acceptance,we shall be glad to give you more clarification on the modalities needed for smooth and successful completion of this transaction.
Thanking you in advance for your cooperation.
(For the family).
