Minerals & Energy South Africa

From: Mrs. Susan Shabangu. Greetings to you, With warm heart I offer my friendship, and 
greetings,and I hope this mail meets you in good time. However strange or surprising this contact 
might seem to you as we have not met personally or had any dealings in the past, I humbly ask that 
you take due consideration of its importance and the immense benefit it will be to you.After 
careful consideration with my children, we resolved to contact you for your most needed assistance 
in this manner. I duly apologize for infringing on your privacy, if this contact is not acceptable 
to you, as I make this proposal to you as a person of integrity. First and foremost I wish to 
introduce myself properly to you. My name is Mrs. Susan Shabangu, mother of three and the Deputy 
Minister of Minerals and Energy of The Republic of South Africa for seven years running.  give you 
a general overview of the situation. When!
I was sworn in as Deputy Minister of Minerals and Energy in 1996, with my influence, my husband Mr. 
Ndelebe Shabangu a very successful businessman was awarded several contracts in my ministry and had 
direct dealings with foreign investors in this field. Due to my political status, I was not 
involved in my husband's business which was very vast and successful. My beloved husband died as a 
result of the recent bomb blast in london{uk} while on an official trip to the london in july{6th} 
2005.When my husband died, I was contacted as next of kin by his bank in Europe to come forth with 
the Certificate of Deposit and claim a safety deposit my husband has in their Vault in his name. At 
that time, my children and I did not have an idea where the Certificate might be. We then 
instructed the bank to continue holding the safety deposit until further instructions from me. 
While preparing for the funeral ceremony of my beloved husband, I was going through his library 
collection and to !
my astonishment I discovered a Certificate of Deposit for the safety deposit with this bank, and 
other documents relating to the safety deposit in a book. The safety deposit which is a trunk, is 
stocked with hard currency (US Dollars)totalling $18,500,000 which was generated from cash payments 
from his business associates in the diamond trade. Though I knew my late husband was in the diamond 
business, I did not have the knowledge that he moved funds in cash. This came as a shock to me and 
my children, and we have decided to have this fund invested immediately in commercial and 
residential properties abroad as well as profitable ventures, as any member of my family cannot 
hold such a huge amount in our name due to my political status, hence we sincerely propose to you 
to render us your most needed assistance in this regard. If you agree to render us your assistance, 
your role in this project will be to act on my behalf as a trustee to receive the safety deposit 
containing the!
funds from the Bank. Though I believe this transaction should be based on mutuality, my family's 
interest will be protected by a family associate, who is a diplomat. He is now aware of the safety 
deposit{certificate of deposit}, and I have informed him that I am locating one of my husband's 
business associates (you) to handle the funds and invest on our behalf, as he might be opposed to 
our decision if he found out that I barely know you. The part of services the diplomat is required 
to render is to assist you in claiming the consignments from the terminal of the Bank in europe and 
to set up a transit domiciliary account in your name of the prime bank he has contacts to carry out 
the exercise through the back door. The purpose of the account is to enable you deposit the funds 
for further transfer into your nominated bank For your reliable assistance, we are offering you 15 
%($2,775,000) of the funds. I thank you in advance as we anticipate your assistance in enabling us 
ach!
ieve this goal. On hearing from you, I will forward your contact to the diplomat who will be 
representing us, and also give you his contact for both of you to communicate and proceed with the 
transaction. He will be working with you for a mutual conclusion of the process and I look forward 
to a long lasting business relationship with you. As you may understand, due to my sensitive 
position in the present government, it is not safe to communicate with me via phone or fax. This is 
why I have communicated with you,please all your corespondence should be forwarded to my private
