PLEASE I NEED YOUR URGENT HELP
  
Good Day: 
  
First, let me start by introducing myself , i am MRS SUSAN SHABANGU, a mother of three children and 
the Minister of Mining of the Republic of South Africa since May 2009. To date under the auspices 
of the President of South Africa MR JACOB ZUMA. After due deliberation with my children, I decided 
to contact you for your assistance in standing as a beneficiary to the sum of US$30.5M (THIRTY 
MILLION, FIVE HUNDRED THOUSAND UNITED STATES DOLLARS) you can view my profile at my (website by 
clicking (www.info.gov.za/gol/gcis_profile.jsp?id=1066) and read about me. 
 
THE PROPOSAL:  After the swearing in ceremony making me the Minister of Mining, my husband LATE MR 
NDEBELE SHABANGU died while he was on an official trip to Trinidad and Tobago in 1996. After his 
death, I just discovered that he had some funds in a dollar account which amounted to the sum of 
US$30.5M (THIRTY MILLION, FIVE HUNDRED THOUSAND UNITED STATES DOLLARS) with a security and finance 
institution in South Africa of which I will divulge information to you when I get your full consent 
and support to go for a change of beneficiary and subsequent transfer of the funds into your 
comfortable and conducive overseas account of your choice. 
 
This fund emanated as a result of an over-invoiced contract which he executed with the Government 
of South Africa. Though I assisted him in getting this contract but I never knew that it was 
over-invoiced by him. I am afraid that the government of South Africa might start to investigate on 
contracts awarded from 1990 to date. 
  
If they discover this money in his bank account, they will confiscate it and seize his assets here 
in South Africa and this will definitely affect my political career in government. I want your 
assistance in coming down to South Africa by opening a new bank account through my banker so that 
this fund could be transferred into your overseas account directly without any hitch. 
  
I am offering you 20% of the principal sum which amounts to US$6,100.000.00 (SIX MILLION, ONE 
HUNDRED THOUSAND UNITED STATES DOLLARS) and 5% will be for any expenses that both of us may Incur 
in this transaction. And another 5% will go for Motherless babes home, while 70% will be for my 
family's investments in your country. However, you have to assure me and also be ready to go into 
agreement with me that you will not elope with my fund. If you agree to my terms, due to my 
position in the government I will not be speaking to you over the  office phone lines as my 
telephone lines are monitored but kindly provide me with your own private mobile number so that I 
can call you and as a matter of urgency please kindly contact me with the above email address and 
my private mobile number.
 
Please do inform me of your travel arrangements to travel down to south Africa for the completion 
of this transaction as I have already completed the transfer arrangements with the help of a bank 
director who I have explained my predicaments and he have agreed to assist me in this transaction 
as soon as I find a foreigner that will stand and act as the beneficiary of this money.   Please I 
do not need to remind you of the need for absolute Confidentiality of this transaction. 
  
My regards to you and your family,
 
Yours faithfully, 
 
 
  
 MRS. SUSAN SHABANGU
