Good day,

                                                  URGENT BUSINESS PROPOSAL 
 After my official enquiry from the foreign trade office of the chambers of commerce & industry 
here in Johannesburg South Africa, I decided to contact you but I did not disclose the intention to 
anyone else because of the delicate nature of the project. I found your profile very interesting 
and decided to reach you directly to solicit for your assistance and guidelines in making a 
business investment and transfer of US$20,500,000.00(TWENTY MILLION, FIVE HUNDRED THOUSAND UNITED 
Please I must plead for your confidence in this transaction. I am a high placed official working 
with Department of (MINISTER OF PRESIDENCY ON WOMEN AFFAIRS)You can view my profile at the South 
African government on line, click on government leaders' click on ministers' by Name and 
finally click on Ms S Shabangu and read about me, 

 When I was inaugurated and sworn in as MINISTER OF PRESIDENCY ON WOMEN AFFAIRS of the Republic of 
South Africa, my late husband Mr. Ndelebe Shabangu; a successful businessman was awarded several 
contracts in my ministry and had direct dealings with foreign investors in this field all this was 
made possible with my knowledgeable assistance. Due to my position and direct involvement with my 
countries government I unfortunately could not and cannot participate or be associated in any of my 
late husbands' vast and successful business dealings. After my husbands' passing his secretary 
notified his business partners and financial advisers both nationally and internationally.  

I was then contacted by a private security firm in South Africa; regarding a safety deposit my 
husband had entrusted with them in their Vault in his name; The above mentioned deposit box has 
been evaluated and found to be valued at $20,500,000.00 (U.S dollars.) containing legal documents 
relating to his personal commerce and with the security firm, The above mentioned fund was 
generated from cash payments from his business associates in the diamond trade Mr. S Muller from 
Antwerp, Belgium. Though I had a limited knowledge of my late husbands' involvement in the diamond 
mining sub-sector, I was taken aback by his great involvement and income, which is why a decision 
was made by our children and myself to invest these funds; which is why I send this request of 
assistance and proposal to you.
Though I believe this transaction should be based on mutuality for your much appreciated help, we 
offer 30% of  the above mentioned funds. Upon hearing from you I will forward your contact to my 
financial advisers, who will be representing me, kindly be aware that under no circumstances will 
communications be made to or from my office by telephone, fax or e-mail as it is not advisable due 
to safety and security reasons. Kindly respond by sending me your contact details via my email or 
fax mail on top, if all is agreed upon. 

I await your response be it positive or otherwise for alternative arrangements to be made in case 
of disapproval.

Yours Faithfully,

Mrs. Susan Shabangu
