    My 1st 419 email in over 10 years!

    I have to say I'm disappointed in the pitch & the sloppy phrasing.

    Minister of Women in the Presidency,
    Email: -------------------
    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. Thabo Mbeki, and was formerly elected as a Minister of Mining, since 11th May 2009 under the auspices of the new President of South Africa, Mr. Jacob Zuma and now presently the Minister of Women in the Presidency from May 2014. After due deliberation with my children, I decided to contact you for your *** 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 (website by clicking (xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx ) 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
    Yours faithfully,

    Minister of Women in the Presidency,
    As a US citizen I have the right to criticize my government. My thanks for this is endless in magnitude.

    Fascism is here led by a hypersensitive psychopathic dictator having complete power, obsessively suppressing criticism, regimenting industry & commerce. Emboldening racism & aggressive nationalism.

    It is scary to think that scammers might some day have good grammar or at least be able to get someone to correct their grammar. All the scams I have seen are obvious scams since they have bad grammar. People claiming to be a bank or other large business make it obvious that they are not who they say they are. Unfortunately recipients that also have bad grammar of scams like that are likely to not know the grammar is bad.
