I have arrived....

From: Mrs. Susan Shabangu.

Compliment of the season.

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.
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

I will now 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 Simon Shabangu a very successful businessman was
awarded several contracts in my ministry and had direct dealings with
investors in this field. Due to my political status, I was not involved
my husbands business which was very vast and successful. My beloved
husband died whilst on an official trip to Trinidad and Tobago
in February 2001.



When my husband died, I was contacted as next of
kin by a private security firm 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
security firm to continue holding the safety deposit
until further instructions from me. Whilst preparing
for the second remembrance of my beloved husband, I
was going through his library collection and to my
astonishment I discovered a Certificate of Deposit for the safety
with this private security firm, and other documents relating to the
safety deposit in a book. The safety deposit which is a trunk, is
with hard currency (US Dollars) totalling $20,000,000:00 which was
generated from cash payments from his business associates in the
trade from Antwerp, Belgium.

Though I knew my late husband was in the diamond
business, I did not have the knowledge that he moved
funds in cash. This has 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
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 Security firm. Though I believe this
transaction should be based on mutuality, my family's
interest will be protected by a family associate, who
is a lawyer(attorney) attached to the South African
Embassy in Ghana, where the funds were originally
deposited, before it was moved to Europe, where the
security firm is located. He is now aware of the
safety deposit, and I have informed him that I am
locating one of my husband's business associates (you) to handle the
and invest on our behalf, as he might be opposed to our decision if he
found out that I barely know you.

For your reliable assistance, we are offering you 20%
of the funds. I thank you in advance as we anticipate
your assistance in enabling us achieve this goal. On
hearing from you, I will forward your contact to the
gentleman lawyer who will be representing us, and also give you his
contact for both of you to communicate and proceed with the

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 nderstand,
due to my sensitive position in the present government, it is not safe
communicate with me via phone or fax.

This is why I have communicated with you with my
private email address, and I like us to keep this way,
for the safety of this transaction.

whether or not you are interested in assisting us
please let us know.This will enable us make alternative plans, in the
event of non-interest on your part.

With warm regards,
Mrs. S. Shabangu.

So, what do you think? Should I help her out and make millions for myself?!?!
