Dear Sir,

Good day, my name is Mr. Nkosi Jonathan, the elder son of Mr. Patrick Nkosi, of Zimbabwe. This might be a surprise to you about where I got your contact address; I got your Address from your Country Telephone Directory.

During the current war against the farmers in my country Zimbabwe from the supports of our President Robert Mugabe to claim all the white-owned farms to his party members and his followers, he ordered all white farmers to surrender all their farms to his party members and his followers.

My father is one of the best farmers in our country, because he did not support Mugabe's ideas to claim all the white-owned farms, Mugabe's supporters killed My Father and destroyed all the items in my father's farm.

Before the death of my father, he deposited US$18,000,000.00 (Eighteen Million United States Dollars) to one of the Security & Finance Company in South Africa.

Then after the death of my father, I and my family decided to move to South Africa where my late father deposited the US$18,000,000.00 (Eighteen Million United States Dollars)in the Security & Finance Company as Valuable Property.

So, I decided to contact you to assist me move the money out of South Africa because as Asylum Seekers (REFUGEE) we are not allowed to operate any Bank Account or to do Investment in South Africa.

So please if you are interested to assist me in this transaction, you are required to come down to South Africa for us to meet and know each other and to transfer the US$18,000,000.00 (Eighteen Million United States Dollars) into your bank account.

Finally, please do not hesitate to contact me on: +27781026139 or on Email Address: immediately you receive this letter for more information in this transaction.

Thanks and may our Almighty God bless you and your family.

Yours faithfully,
