Dear friend,Patti Herington

I am contacting you to front as a co-owner of my late husband's
company and beneficiary of funds (US$15,500,000.00) due to the
company. I am currently a high ranking government official in the
ruling cabinet of President Thabo Mbeki (South Africa). I am a widow
and mother of two children.My late husband Mr Ronald Tshabalala died
1996. After his death, I recently discovered that an over-invoiced
proceeds of a contract I helped his company secure is yet to be paid
out by the Reserve Bank of South Africa. Presently the funds can
also be paid out by South Africa's offshore bank in netherland. This
funds emanated as a result of an over-invoiced contract which my
husband's company executed with the Government of South Africa.I am
afraid that the government of South Africa might start to
investigate on contracts awarded from 1995 to date. If they discover
this money yet unclaimed with my husband's name linked to it, the
government will confisticate the money and seize his assets here in
South Africa and this will definitely affect my political career in
