Hello Villanueva


Compliments and Greetings to you. Sequel to a meeting with
my family and after due deliberation with my children, I am
contacting you for your utmost assistance in a delicate
matter that involves the sum of US$8.5M (Eight Milion,
Five Hundred Thousand United States Dollars Only) and by
you, standing as a beneficiary to this sum on our behalf.

Firstly, let me start by introducing myself, I am MS. SUSAN
SHABANGU, a mother of three children and the former Deputy Minister 
of Minerals and Energy, and presently the Deputy Minister for safety 
and security under the auspices of the President of South Africa MR 
THABO MBEKI. You can view my profile at my website

After the swearing in ceremony making me the Deputy Minister of 
Minerals and Energy in 1996, my husband Mr Ndelebe Shabangu died 
while he was on an official trip to Trinidad and Tobago. After his 
death, I discovered that he had some funds in a dollar account which 
amounted to the sum of US$8.5M with a finance Company Abroad.

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 and If they discover
this kind of money in his bank account, it will raise eyebrow which 
may leed to the account confiscated and other assets seized here in 
South Africa and this will definetely affect my political career in 

I want your assistance in opening an account with this
Finance Company through my Attorney so that this fund could
be wired into your account directly without any hitch. As
soon as the fund gets to your account, you are expected to
move it immediately into another personal bank account in
your country or else where. I will see to it that the
account is not traced from South Africa. As soon as you have 
confirmed the fund into your account, I will send my eldest son with 
my Attorney to come over to your country to meet and discuss on 
possible business investments.

For your assistance rendered , I am opened to negotiation
with you on the percentage of the total sum that will go to
you, However, you have to assure me and also be ready to go
into agreement with me that you will not elope with my fund
when it gets to your account.

If you agree to my terms, kindly as a matter of urgency send me an 
email. Due to my sensitive position in the South
African Government, I would not WANT you to call me on phone or send 
a fax to me. All correspondence must be by email to my private and 
secured email address,

If you want to speak with my Attorney, that is fine and okay by me. 
His chambers will be representing my interest at the Finance 
Company. All correspondence must be made either to my Attorney, or 
send me an email. I will also like you to give me your contact 
address, telephone, fax and mobile (if any),to enable my Attorney 
call or reach you from time to time.

Please I do not need to remind you of the need for absolute
Confidentiality if this transaction must succeed. YOU MUST
NOT CALL ME! If you do not feel comfortable with this
transaction, do not hesitate to discontinue.

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

Yours faithfully,

Deputy Minister of Minerals and Energy
South Africa
(For The Family)
