Mr. Paul UGO
P. O. Box 32, Shaka,
Bulawayo, Zimbabwe.

Dear Sir/Madam

You may be surprised to receive this letter from me since you do not
know me personally. For the purpose of introduction, I am Mr. Paul
Ugo, the son of Dr. Matelo Ugo, a wealthy farmer/politician in
Zimbabwe who was recently murdered in the land dispute in my country.

I got your contact through the internet based on our urgent need for a
dependable and trustworthy foreign partner. Hence I decided to write
to you.
Before the death of my late father, he had taken me to Johannesburg to
deposit the sum total of US$20.5 million (Twenty million, Five Hundred
thousand United States dollars), in one of the private security
companies, as he foresaw the looming danger in Zimbabwe. This money
was deposited in two boxes as Family Treasures to avoid much demurrage
from the security company. This amount was meant for the purchase of
new machines and chemicals for the Farms and the establishment of new
farms in Swaziland.

The land problem, in our country came when our President Mr. Robert
Mugabe in a bid to win his re-election, introduced a new Land Act
Reform wholly affecting the rich white farmers and some few black
farmers who are members of the opposition party. This resulted in
killings and mob action by Zimbabwean war veterans and some lunatics
in the society. A lot of people have been killed because of this Land
reform Act for which my father was unfortunately one of the victims.
It is against this background that, I and my family fled Harare our
capital for fear of our lives and are currently staying in a remote
country side of Bulawayo. We are planning to leave the country and
seek political asylum in Europe and we have decided to move our family
wealth to Europe.

As the eldest son of my father, I am saddled with the responsibility
of seeking a genuine partner that could assist us without the
knowledge of my government who are bent on taking everything we have
got, and the South African government seems to be playing along with
them. I am faced with the dilemma of moving this amount of money out
of South Africa for fear of going through the same experience in
future, since both countries have similar political history.

I am now seeking for a partner whom I have to entrust my future and
that of my family in his/her hands. To this end, we need your
assistance to stand as the Beneficiary of the Consignments in Europe.
This is because we are under restricted movement and watch and hence
we want to be very careful in order not to lose this fund which we
have worked so hard for. I have a sufficient CONTACT person at the
Security Company in South Africa who can help us move this money to
Europe under DIPLOMATIC COVER to another Security Company in Europe
with your details as the Beneficiary. This is 100% legal and will not
pass through normal Customs/Airport Screening.

Thus, if you are willing to assist us to move this fund out of South
Africa, you can contact me through my email address above
with your telephone, fax number and personal information to enable us
discuss further details. I must let you know that this transaction is
risk free as far as we keep it as confidential as possible.

Thank you, many blessings to you.
Yours Faithfully,

Mr. Paul Ugo. paulugo@rediffmail.com
