After due deliberation with my children, I decided to contact you for your assistance in standing 
as a beneficiary to the sum of US30.5M Thirty Million, Five Hundred Thousand United States Dollars 
First, let me start by introducing myself as Mrs. Stella Sigcau, a mother of three children and the 
Minister of Public Works in South African Government (17 June 1999)  to date 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 Minister of Public Works in South African Government 
(17 June 1999) , my husband Mr Edelebe Sigcau 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 South African bank which had her offshore House in the Europe
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 definetely affect my 
political career in Government.
I want your assistance in claiming this funds   through my Attorney who will take care of the 
documentation 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, I would not WANT you to call me on phone or send a fax to 
If you want to speak with my Attorney, that is fine and okay by me. His chambers will be 
representing my interest at the  BANK. All correspondence must be made either to my Attorney 
Barrister  Peter Parker, of Peterparker Chamber And Associates or send me an email. I will also 
like you to give me your contact address,telephone and fax 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,
Minister of Public Works, South Africa.
