    From Mrs. Susan Shabangu

    Minister of Social Development,

    Republic Of South Africa


    Good Day,

    First, let me start by introducing myself My name is Mrs. Susan

    Shabangu, I am visually impaired Widow, a mother of three children and

    former Deputy Minister for Safety and Security of the Republic of

    South Africa under the auspices of the former President of South

    Africa, Mr.Jacob Zuma, and was formerly elected as Minister of Women

    in the Presidency 03 June 2014 under the auspices of the new President

    of South Africa, Mr.Cyril Ramaphosa and now presently the Minister of

    Social Development from 2018-02-27. After due deliberation with my

    children, I decided to contact you for your a*s instance 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 my

    (// and read about me.

    THE PROPOSAL, after my swearing in ceremony making me the former

    Minister of Safety and Security, my husband Mr. Ndebele Shabangu died

    while he was on an official trip to Trinidad and Tobago. After his

    death, I discovered that he had some funds in a dollar account which

    amounted to the sum of US$30.5Million 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 your 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 security company 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 either by coming down to South Africa in person or provide

    your complete bank details information, so that these funds could be

    wired directly into your overseas account without any hitch. 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) and 5%

    will be for any expenses that both of us may Insure in this

    transaction. And another 5% will go for Motherless babes home.

    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.

    Also, I can give you my banker phone number so that you can contact

    him and discuss with him directly as he already promised to use his

    position to move this fund out of South Africa, it’s okay and fine by

    me. Please I do not need to remind you of the need for absolute

    Confidentiality of this transaction.

    My regards to your family,

    Mrs. Susan Shabangu.

Though I know that a transaction of this magnitude will make anyone apprehensive and worried, but I am assuring you that all will be well at the end of the day. I decided to contact you due to the urgency of this transaction.

I have been in this capacity working with the bank for the last 15 years and I joined this institution in 1983 as a junior clerk and worked my way up through the ranks. On assumption of duty in November 2002 I discovered a dormant account in my branch that was opened in 1985 in the name of Karl Henning and I have kept close tab on this very account for the last 15 years and it has remained dormant even from the day the first deposit of (US$37, 000,000,00)Thirty Seven Million United States dollars was made to this moment, we have been investigating this account for the past 15 years and discovered that Karl Henning was used as Pseudonym Name to open the account while the original owner of the funds in question was the late president of Philippines Ferdinand Marcos. The next of kin part was left blank hence it was impossible for them to have claimed the fund! s these past years or they have fo

    1.Beneficiary name and address

    2.Identification documents

    3.Direct Telephone and Private Email Address.

    These requirements will enable me make some internal re-adjustments and file your name in all the forms and other vital documents as next of kin to the Pseudonym Name Karl Henning which before now was left blank when the account was opened many years ago. Upon your reply, we shall then discuss the sharing ratio and advice you the detailed procedure to follow and achieve this once in a life time opportunity without any hitch. I must assure you that if you are serious and follow my lead religiously, these funds will be processed and released to you within 14-working-day period. If this proposal is acceptable by you, do not take undue advantage of the trust I have bestowed in you, I await your Immediate Reply.

    I want somebody that will use this fund according to the desire of my late.husband to help Underprivileged people, orphanages,widows and propagating the word of God. I took this decision because I don¢t have any child that will inherit this fund, And I don¢t want in away where this money will be used in an Ungodly way. This is why I am taking this decision to hand you over this Fund.

    I am not afraid of death hence I know where I am going.I want you to always remember me in your daily prayers because of my up coming Cancer Surgery.

    Write back as soon as possible any delay in your reply will give me room in sourcing another person for this same purpose, Hoping to read from you asap.
