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 Philip
k GARBA, the first son of Mr. Pedro Garba, who was recently murdered in the
land dispute in Zimbabwe. I got your contact through network online hence I
decided to write you. Before the death of my father, he had taken me to
Johannesburg to deposit the sum of US$10Million (Ten Million United States
Dollars), in one of the private security company, as if he foresaw the
looming danger in Zimbabwe. This money was deposited in a box as germ stones
to avoid much demurrage from Security Company. This amount was meant for the
purchase of new machines and chemicals for the farms and established of new
farm in Swaziland. This land problem came when Zimbabwean President Mr.
Robert Mugabe introduce a new Land Act reform which wholly affected the rich
white farmers and some few blacks 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 reformed Act for
which my father was one of the victim. It is against this background that, I
and my family who are currently staying in South Africa decided to transfer
my father's money to foreign account since the law of South Africa prohibit
a refugee (asylum seeker) to open any bank account or to be involved in any
financial transaction througout the teritorial zone South Africa. As the
eldest son of my father, I am saddle with the responsibility of seeking a
genuine foreign account where this money could be transferred without the
knowledge of my government who are bent from taking everything we have got.
The South African government seems to be playing along with them. I am faced
with the dilemma of investing this amount of money in South Africa for fear
of going through the same experience in future since both countries have
similar political history. Moreover, the South African Foreign Exchange
policy does not allow such investment as an asylum seeker. As a businessman,
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 make arrangements and come to
Johannesburg - South Africa, so that you can open a non-resident account
which will aid us in transferring the money into any account you will
nominate overseas or you have all rigths to suggest any avenue you deem fit
for this transfer if you can not come down. This I intend to use this money
for investment. 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 options
you want, feel free to notify me I have also mapped out 5% of this money for
all kinds of expenses incurred in the process of this transaction. If you do
not prefer a partnership I am willing to give you 25% of the money while the
remaining 70% will be for my investment in your country. I implore you to
maintain the absolute secrecy required in this transaction. Yours
Faithfully, PHILIP .K. GARBA. (For the Family)
