But it did not say a thing about cheese

Wow, it seems that Bird Brain has been doing well with answering emails on this blog. He gets a lot of emails, though. I do not get so many. I think maybe more Parrots read blogs than mice. Still, I did get an email today, so I thought maybe I could do what Bird Brain does and post it here and answer it. Unlike the short emails that Bird Brain gets, however, I got this:

Dear Mr Mouse,

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 Mbeki Salingo, the first son of MERIMBE TUTU SALINGO ,the most popular black farmer in Zimbabwe who was recently murdered in the land dispute in my country.

I got your contact through network online hence decided to write you. Before the death of my father, he had taken me to Johannesburg to deposit the sum of US8.5 Million (Eight Million, Five Hundred United States dollars)in one of the private security company, as he foresaw the looming danger in Zimbabwe this money was deposited in a box as gemstones to avoid much demurrage from security company. This amount was meant for the purchase of new machines and chemicals for the Farms and establishment of new farms in Swaziland. This land problem came when Zimbabwean President Mr.Robert Mugabe introduced a new Land Act Reform wholly affected the rich white farmers and some few black 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 reform Act for which my father was one of the victims.

It is against this background that, I and my family fled Zimbabwe for fear of our lives and are currently staying in Spain where we are seeking political asylum and moreso have decided to transfer my father^s money to a more reliable foreign account. since the law of Spain prohibits a refugee (asylum seeker) to open any bank account or to be involved in any financial transaction throughout the territorial zone of Spain, As the eldest son of my father, I am saddled with the responsibility of seeking a genuine foreign account where this money could be transferred without the knowledge of my government who are bent on taking verything we have got. 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, both countries have similar political history. As a businessman,I am seeking for a partner 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 arrangements with the security company to clear the consignment(funds) from their afiliate office here in Spain as i have already given directives for the consignment to be brought to Spain from South Africa.But before then all modalities will have to be put in place e.g change of ownership of the consignment and This money I intend to use 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 option you want, feel free to notify me. I have also mapped out 5% of this money for all kinds of expensesincurred in the process of this transaction. If you do not prefer a partnership I am willing to give you 15% of the money while the remaining 80% will be for my investment in your country. Contact me with my private E-mail address (mbekisalingo@zwallet.com) while I implore you to maintain the absolute secrecy required in this transaction.


Yours Faithfully,
Mbeki Salingo

Oh goodness, Mbeki, that is a very sad story. My condolences for the loss of your father. Your situation sounds very involved and much too complicated for my little mouse brain to comprehend. What do you mean by modalities?If I understand correctly, you want my assistance with transferring a large sum of dollars in some manner. Mice have no understanding of money matters nor do we have any real need for money. All mice of my acquaintance simply forage for whatever they need, being cheese or other delicious repast. Money might be beneficial for purchasing large quantities of cheese, but the humans in my local area have shown to have no understanding of mouse speak. I fear that I can be of no help to you.
