    JAMES THABO:



    REPUBLIC Of SOUTH AFRICA.

    Tel; +27-83-727-4915.

    E-mail: [email protected]

    ATTN: THE MANAGING DIRECTOR C E O.

    DEAR: Sir/m.

    My name is JAMES THABO, the son of MR.COSMAN THABO of Zimbabwe. It
    might be
    a surprise to you where I got your contact address, Don't be worried
    because I am contacting you in goodfaith.During the current crisis
    against
    the farmers of Zimbabwe by the supporters of our\ President Robert
    Mugabe
    to claim all the white owned farms in our country, he ordered all the
    white
    farmers to surrender their facer8communications.co.ukrms to his party
    members and their followers.

    My father was one of the best farmers in the country and knowing
    that he
    did not support the President political ideology, the president
    supporters
    invaded my father's farm and burnt down everything, killed him and
    confiscated all his investments. I was studying when my father died and
    I
    was forced to return to the funeral.My mother notified me about my
    father's Will. When I was going through the will,I discovered that my
    late
    father had used his position then to make some money, which he
    brilliantly
    transferred and deposited it with a private Security Company here in
    johannesburg, Republic of South Africa.He deposited this consignment
    as
    Family valuable Treasures. The Security Company does not know that
    this
    consignment contains cash money except me.
    The amount is Twenty Five Million United States Dollars(USD 25
    MILLION).However, my aim of contacting you is to help me and take this
    sum
    into your nominated account in your country or any other part of the
    world.

    Secondly, you will also help us to look for a profitable investment
    overseas because I don't have knowledge of International investments.
    As a
    result of my present situation, I won't be able to conclude this
    transaction alone.

    After the death of my father, my mother and I with my younger sister
    decided
    to move out of Zimbabwe for the safety of our lives to the Republic of
    South Africa.Because of our present status (Political Refugees), my
    mother
    and I are seriously looking forward to having an overseas partner
    that
    will assist us with the convenient and legal transfer of the funds out
    of
    South Africa. If my proposition is considered, for assisting us to
    transfer
    this money to your country, we will offer you 20% of the total fund,
    and 5%
    of the total will be set aside to cover any expenses incurred during
    this
    transaction. 75% will be for my family to invest in your country under
    your
    supervision.

    For detailed information, you can contact me on my direct line:
    +27-83-727-4915. I would appreciate confidentiality and honesty in our
    correspondence. Your immediate response will be highly welcomed.

    Best Regards,
    THABO
