What a kind chap, 20% for me, 1% for expenses, and 4% for charity, how kind.

Good Day,
with warm hearts I offer my friendship, and my greetings, and I hope this letter meets you in good time. It will be surprising to you to receive this proposal from me since you do not know me personally.

However, I am sincerely seeking your confidence in this transaction, which I propose with my free mind and as a person of integrity. My name is PEDRO MULETE , the son of Zhiri Mulete, a farmer from Zimbabwe, murdered in the land dispute in my country. As led by my instinct, I decided to contact you through email, after searching for contacts via the internet, as it is the only means I can contact anybody since I am cutting off ties with Zimbabwe for now. I apologize if this is not acceptable to you. The purpose of this letter is to seek your most needed assistance in a business venture. Due to the land and political problems in Zimbabwe, as a result of President Robert Mugabe's introduction of new Land Act Reform wholly affecting the rich white farmers and the few rich black farmers, all white farmers were asked to surrender their farms to the government for re-distribution and infact to his political party members and my father though black was the treasury of the farmers association and a strong member of an opposition party that did not support the president's idea.

He then ordered his party members and the police under his pay row to invade my father's farm and burn down everything in the farm. They killed my father and took away a lot of items from his farm. After the death of my father, our local pastor and a close friend of my father handed us over will documents with instructions from my father that we should leave Zimbabwe incase anything happen to him. The will documents has a certificate of deposit, confirming a cash deposit totaling twelve million five hundred thousand united state dollars. [12.5m] Kept in custody for us in a security company unknown to the company that the content is money hence it was deposited as personal belongings. This money was deposited with this Private Security Company for safety and security reasons, and was to be used for the purchase of land, new machines and chemicals establishment of new farms in Botswana.

This violent and barbaric act by Mugabe has since led to the death of my beloved mother and kid sister and other innocent lives. I was continually threatened to abandon my inheritance from my father after he was murdered. I resisted for a while, but when the danger became unbearable, and I survived two murder attempts, I fled Zimbabwe with the help of my father's close friend Mr. John Casahans from Australia also a farmer who was leaving in Zimbabwe with us but left with his family following this ugly development I have tried to reach him but all to no avail.

I am currently staying in the Netherlands where I am seeking political asylum. In fact my decision to come here to seek asylum, is because the security company from South Africa, has a branch here, I have contacted them to move the safe deposit from their office in Johannesburg here, which they have since done. I need to transfer this money to an account and invest part of the money. Since the law of Netherlands prohibits a refugee (asylum seeker) to open any bank account or to be involved in any financial transaction, this is why I am seeking a genuine and reliable partner, whose account this money can be transferred, hence this proposal to you.

You have to understand that this decision taken by me is a very big and brave one, and it entrusts my future in your hands, as a result of the safe keeping of this money. If you accept to assist me, all I want you to do for me, is to assist with arrangements to claim the deposit from the security company from their office here in The Netherlands, as it has now been transferred from Johannesburg, South Africa to their branch here. The company will be legally informed of you representing me.

For your assistance, I have two options for you. Firstly you can choose to have 20% of the money for your assistance, and helping me open an account for the money to be deposited here, or you can go into partnership with me for the proper profitable investment of the money in your country. Whichever the option you want, please to notify me in your reply.

I have also set aside 1 % of this money for all kinds of expenses that come our way in the process of this transaction, and 4% for Charity donation. If you prefer to accept the 20% for your moral and financial assistance then the balance will be left in the account here for me.

Please, I want you to maintain absolute secrecy for the purpose of this transaction.
You can reach me on this mobile phone number most of the time 0031-630233861
Your reply should be sent to my private email address only tranpoda@netscape.net
I look forward to your reply and co-operation, and I thank you in advance as I anticipate your co-operation.


My reply, 25th Apr - 10 mins after email received:

Hi Pedro,

Please send more details. I am interested.
20% ? What about 25% - forget the 1% expenses, and 4% charity.
Give me 25%.


Game on, a reply at last!

Dear brian

Thanks for your willigness to assist me.I want you to understand that i'm making you the beneficiary to this fund, and as the beneficiary you will have to travel to Holland to meet with the security company, this will be an opportunity for us to meet, know each other and go to the security company together.

The fund in question is not deposited in any name but with a security code which is only known to me and the officials of the security company in Holland. Based on this, a Certificate of Deposit was issued which I intend to handover to you when the time comes for you to go for the collection of the consignment.

I will also like to inform you that the consignment was labelled Family Valuables and the contents not known to any other person except me. In otherwords, the security company and it's officials do not know the actual contents of the consignment. Therefore, I will require of you a high degree of confidentiality in this matter. Time is not on our side Endeavour to send me your fax numbers to enable me put accross the deposit certificate and other important relating documents regarding the collection of the consignment.

Please let me know your opinion regarding this arrangement.

Awaitting your urgent response,

pedro mulete

My reply, same day:

Hi Pedro,

Travel to Holland? Are you serious? I am a man of modest means (ie. broke) - can't afford to travel to Holland.
Can you pay for me to fly out there? There's a lot of money riding on this.

Failing that, any chance of meeting me in sunny Wigan? If you do decide to come to Wigan, let me know because I would like you to buy me some cheap ciggies at European prices.
