Details of Scam Report
Received a message from the one of the members of "opportunity" website, naming himself as Mr. Siyabonga Motlanthe, one of the cabinet minister in south Africa. He is a member in LinkedIn. IThe first e-mail was a type of enquiry if I need business loan. When I answered yes and explained the amount would be INR 50,00000 he immediately accepted. I got a doubt but decided to know what type of scam this would be. I am pasting his reply below for the reference. In the beginning he said he will send his son for a closed door meeting to India but later said he has changed his plan since his wife his sick. He wanted his son to be with his wife and that we can get into business agreement directly. He send an letter of Intent to be signed and sent to him through e-mail. At last he said that he cannot transfer the amount to my account in India and that I need to open an account in his country and demanded the amount accordingly. Non-Resident Savings Account - Opening fee is USD 3,000 2) Non-Resident Current Account- Opening fee is USD 5,000 3) Non-Resident Fixed Deposit - Opening fee is USD 10,000 4) Non-Resident Corporation Account- Opening fee USD 15,000 I did not oblige and that is the end.

Earlier email from Siyabonga Siyabonga Motlanthe Jan 18 to me Salaam-Alaikum Thanks for the email and I do hope this email finds you in good health. I have gone through the document you sent and i must say that i am impressed but what worries me is just that the capital required is very infinitesimal. However, you seem to have canal knowledge of the business and I believe putting more fund will widen your horizon to expand the business. I do understand your plight in regard to if i will provide the whole fund or if you will provide some. I need to assure you that I am willing to provide the whole capital and in short a total sum of USD 18.9 Million.. All that i need from you is a total discretion/confidentiality. First of all like I said in my earlier email, I am a politician, the political terrain where I made this money from and I do believe you understand that we African Politicians makes our money through the government via contract Inflations which does not have proof of fund... I am in position to move the fund mentioned in my previous email and am willing to pay any upfront expenses you render during the course of this business Investment... Kindly provide me with your mobile to ring back, and discuss details on how or where to meet with my Son for closed door details of the funds..I will plan for my son to travel and meet with you but before than, let discuss and agree on a single term and principle.
