Subject: RSA Deputy Minister of Safety and Security


This email with the subject "RSA Deputy Minister of Safety and Security" was received in one of Scamdex's honeypot email accounts on Sat, 30 Dec 2006 01:48:15 -0800 and has been classified as a Advance Fee Fraud/419 Scam.

The sender was, although it may have been spoofed.

First, let me start by introducing myself as MRS SUSAN SHABANGU,a mother of three children and the 
Deputy Minister of Safety and Security since 29th April 1996 to date under the auspices of the 
President of South Africa MR THABO MBEKI.

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 Only) You can view my profile at the South African government on line,  click on, Contact Information, then click on  
Deputy Minister, and finally, click on Safety and Security  and read about me. THE PROPOSAL, after 
the swearing in ceremony making me the Deputy Minister of Safety and Security, my husband 
Mr.Ndelebe Shabangu died while he was on an official trip to Trinidad and Tobago in 1996.

After his death, I discovered that he had some funds in a dollar account which amounted to the sum 
of US$30.5M 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 you a comfortable and conducive 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 opening an account with bankers through 
my banker 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.

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 to your country to 
discuss on business investments. For your assistance, 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 Only) 

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, kindly as a matter of urgency send me an email. Due 
to my sensitive position in the South African Government, PLEASE DO NOT CALL ON THE OFFICE LINE, 
me an email than calling. All correspondence must be by email to my private email address,  if you want to speak with my Banker that is fine and okay by me. You 
will have to send down your private telephone /fax number so that I can forward it to him to reach 
you from time to time this is for security reasons. 

Please I do not need to remind you of the need for absolute Confidentiality of this transaction 
must succeed. 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 Safety & Security,
South Africa
