Deputy Minister of safety and security
South Africa
Dear Friend,
After due deliberation with my children, I decided to contact you for your assistance in standing as a beneficiary to the sum of US$4.5M ( four Million, Five Hundred Thousand United States ollars Only)  First, let me start by introducing myself, I am MRS USAN SHABANGU, a mother of three children and the Deputy Minister of safty and security since 1st April 1996 to date under 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 , my husband Mr Ndelebe Shabangu died while he was on an official trip to Trinidad and Tobago in 2002. After his death, I iscovered that he had some funds in a dollar account which mounted to the sum of US$4.5M with FINANCE SECURITY HOUSE .
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 1998 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.
want your assistance in clearing this money from FINANCE SECURITY HOUSE. As soon as the fund is cleared, 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 haveconfirmed 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 $1,000,000 (one million United States Dollars nly)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 me. All correspondence must be by email to my private email.
If you want to speak with my Attorney, that is fine and okay by me. His chambers will be esenting my  interest with you. All correspondence must be made either to my ttorney Barrister oki nzeagali of oki chambers or send me an email to my private email box on   I will also like you to give me your contact address of telephone,fax and email 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
Yours faithfully,
Deputy Minister of safety  and security
