My Dearest In Heart,
i have build trust on you that is why i am giving you all this information, I have informed the bank about my plans to transfer this money and the only thing they told me is to look for a foreign partner who will stand on my behalf due to my refugee status here and the laws of this country. You will have 15% of the total money for helping me and the remaining money will be managed in any business of your choice. i attached my photos and i want you to try yourself to call so we speak on the phone +221776680756 and also try to write a mail to the bank.

In this regard i will like you to contact the bank immediately with this information, tell them that you are my foreign partner and that you want to know the possibilities of assisting me in transferring the ($7.5 Million US Dollars) deposited by my late father of which i am the next of kin to your account in your country.
The contact information of the bank is as follows,

Information about the deposit code are as follows.

The name of the transfer officer is Mr Steven Hester.
Mobile Telephone number....+447 508725022‏

Rosalyn is the name my parents called me when they were alive and Miss Rosalyn is the name that people and friends know me with .Contact them now on how to transfer the $7.5 million Dollars deposited by my late father of which i am the next of kin. I have mapped out 15% for your assistance and 5% for any expenses that might come up in this transfer. My dear i am glad that God has brought you to see me out from this situation and i promise to be kind and will equally need you in every area of my life plus investing this money since i am still too young to manage this amount of money.

As i told you before, this camp is just like a prison and my prayers is to move out from here as soon as possible. Please make sure that you contact the bank so that after the transfer is done, you can send some money from that money for me to prepare my traveling documents to meet with you in your country.
Awaiting to hear from you soonest!.
Yours forever in love,

Rosalyn Abdul Zuma

Visa in South Africa
Good day to all!
I have a Russian passport.
Now I am in Egypt, and I have a tourist visa in Egypt.
Can I get a visa to South Africa in the Consulate of South Africa in Cairo?

Hi all, i had my friend coming to South Africa on a student permit. he gave his visa in and was told it would take a week or two by the lady on the counter. When he received no calls he spent 3 weeks going once a week to check at the embassy if it was ready. He lost his patience on the 4th week and requested his passport back. Upon receiving his passport he saw that he had received the visa the week after he gave it in and ended up spending another 4 extra weeks waiting for nothing. Had he not asked for his visa he would not have known. The same egyptian guy at the counter always checked and said not ready meanwhile all along he knew that my friend had already received his visa. I don't know why he did this but please always get different people to help if possible at the embassy or you might end up having a bitter person lying to you for no apparent reason. He spent 3 weeks paying for a hotel stay in which he didnt have to had he known his visa was ready. As a South African i was disappointed as it does not reflect how South Africans represent themselves
