copy/paste from my mail:

From: Bobi Ladawa Mobutu
Mobutu Family Villa
Democratic Republic Of Congo.


My name is Bobi Ladawa Mobutu, the wife of the late Ousted
Zairian President Mobutu Sese Seko, now known
as Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). I was informed,
some months ago by a security/finance company in South
Africa that my late husband left a deposited consignment
with them, since the late nineties. I then sent my brother
Mr Franco Bongo to go there and check it out and he went
and confirmed that the consignment was there.

After that we searched my late husband?s files and found
some of the documents he used in depositing same
consignment with an attached letter, which showed that all
he deposited in the security/finance company was cash of
$30 million U.S.Dollars and some share certificates.

Since our findings, my brother Mr Franco Bongo has
relocated to Johannesburg, South Africa to see if he can
arrange with one of my late husband?s friend, who was a top
banker in South Africa, for the moving out of these funds
from S.Africa.So you can contact my brother Franco on this
telephone number:+27-723-534-943 immediately.

My reason for contacting you is that we will like you to
assist my family in receiving this money for investment in
your country which you will equally manager and control, on
behalf of my family for a period of 5 years. These funds
will be moved out of South Africa in your name or company?s
name; you will be my family?s trustee/investment manager.

You will be allotted some percentage from these funds after
you receive them and the rest will be used for my family?s
investment in your country.

If you agree to the above and will like to negotiate with
us, please forward your telephone numbers, fax and full
contact name by email for further discussions.

Awaiting your response.

Best Regards
Bobi Ladawa Mobutu

Dang, I can't believe that this email is still floating around. There was an artice a few months ago in the Readers' Digest about this scam.

Apparently, there were a few people who actually fell for this!
