After due deliberation with my children, I decided to contact you for your =
assistance in standing as a beneficiary to the sum of US$15 Million (Fiftee=
n Million United States Dollars Only) First, let me start by introducing my=
self, I am MRS. Susan van der Merwe, a mother of two children and the Deput=
y Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of South Africa since 29 Apri=
l 2004. Member of the Board of Directors of UMAC (Non-Governmental Organiza=
tion working in Westernand Eastern Cape) (1992 - 2002).Parliamentary Counse=
llor to the President (2001 - 2004).Visit this site for my profile.

After the swearing in ceremony making me Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs=
 of the Republic of South Africa since 29 April 2004. My husband Mr Merwe d=
ied while he was on a trip to KENYA in 2005. After his death, I discovered =
that he had some funds in a dollar account which mounted to the sum of US$1=
5 Million with SECURITY COMPANY. 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 it was over=
-invoiced by him. I am afraid that the government of South Africa might sta=
rt investigations on contracts awarded from 1998 to date and if they discov=
er this money with this security company, they will confiscate it and seize=
 his assets here in South Africa and this will definitely affect my politic=
al career in government.

I want you to assistance in clearing this money from the security firm As s=
oon as the fund is cleared; you are expected to move it immediately into an=
other personal bank account in your country.

I will see to it that the account is not traced from South Africa. As soon =
as you have confirmed the fund in your account, I will send my eldest son w=
ith my Attorney to come to your country to discuss on business investments =
For your assistance, I am offering you 3 Million (Three million United Stat=
es Dollars Only) However, you have to assure me and also be ready to go int=
o agreement with me that you will not elope with the money. If you agree to=
 my terms, kindly as a matter of urgency send me an email. susanmerwe@gmail= Due to my sensitive position in the South African Government, email =
to my private email. if you want to speak with my At=
torney, that is fine and okay by me.

His chambers will be representing my interest with you. All correspondence =
must be made through my Attorney. I don=E2=80=99t want you to call me on my=
 office phone for security reasons. I will also like you to give me your co=
ntact address of telephone, fax and email to enable my Attorney call or rea=
ch you from time to time. And I will call you as well .Please I do not need=
 to remind you of the need for absolute Confidentiality if this transaction=
 must succeed.

scontinue. Thanks for your anticipated co-operation and my regards to your =
