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, and his desire to hold on to power for life,
my father forsaw the danger that came in Zimbabwe. Before he was
murdered, he withdrew all of our business foreign accounts in

(Fourteen million, Five Hundred thousand US dollars), in a private
security company. 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 and Swaziland.

is because the security company from South Africa, has a branch
here, and they have moved the deposit from their office in
Johannesburg here. I need to transfer this money to an account and
invest part of the money. Since the law of Netherlands prohibits a

Nigeria. Come on .. be a sport and send this unlucky Zimbabwean
farmer your bank account number so he can transfer his father's
hard earned millions into it .. he's going to give you ten percent
I did it for a Senegalese princess whose father had been deposed by
rebels. Unfortunately there was some hitch with my bank account
just before she transferred the 80m into it and we both lost all our
money, including my life savings .. but at least I tried to help.
This guy sounds genuine!
maybe someone could help him.Or you could form a syndicate from the
forum,and do it collectively.
I can not take part ,unfortunately, because a while back I helped out
a Nigerian Doctor to transfer some money,and my share was millions of
dollars.For tax reasons,I do not want to make any more money this
I am just going kiting everyday,I have so much new gear now,I can go
out in any conditions,except dead calm,in which case I shop for more
