Some days I have to go and find examples of social and ethical issues related to this course. 

Other days, the examples come and find me. 

Below, I've reproduced the full text of a document I received by email just now (see attachment for original document). If you don't laugh, you'll cry.

Mrs. Shabangu, Wherever You Are, I Hope You Get The Help You Need...

My Dear,

STRICTLY FOR YOU & NEEDS URGENT RESPONSE PLEASE!

 

This Mail Was First Sent To You Before Two Months Ago, But Up till Now, I Have Not Heard From You. Based On This, I Decided To Re-send It Again To You. Though, I Know For Security Reasons, This Is Not The Safest Means To Reach You, But Was Left With No Other Viable Option Since There Is The Pressing Need To Reach You. I Am Quite Sure That This Letter Will Surprise You Since I Have Not Been Having Previous Correspondences With You. First, let me start by introducing myself as MRS SUSAN SHABANGU, a mother of three children and the Minister of Mineral Resources, since 11 May 2009 to date under the auspices of the President of South Africa MR .JACOB ZUMA. After due deliberation with my children, I decided to contact you for your assistance in standing as a beneficiary to the sum of (US$35.5 Million United States Dollars). You can view my profile at my website www.gov.za then click on contact formation, then also click at deputy ministers, then click on my office (Minister of Mineral Resources). www.info.gov.za/gol/gcis_profile.jsp?id=1066  

 

After the swearing in ceremony making me the Deputy Ministry, Safety and Security, my husband Mr. Ndelebe Shabangu died while he was on an official trip to a country Trinidad and Tobago in 1996. After his death, I discovered that he had some funds in a dollar account which amounted to the sum of US$35.5 Million 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 you a 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 1994 to date. If they discover this money in his bank 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 in opening an account so that this fund could be wired into your account directly without any hitch. As soon as the fund gets to your account, you are expected to move it immediately into another personal bank account in your country. I will see to it that the account is not traced from South Africa. As soon as you have confirmed the fund into your account, I will send my eldest son with my Attorney to come to your country to discuss on business investments. For your assistance, I am offering you 25% of the principal sum.

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. Due to my sensitive position in the South African Government, I would not WANT YOU TO CALL ME ON PHONE or send a FAX to me. All correspondence must be by email to my private email address, if you want to speak with my Lawyer, which is fine and okay by me. You will have to send down your private telephone /fax number so that I can forward it to him to reach you from time to time this is for security reasons.

Please I do not need to remind you of the need for absolute Confidentiality if this transaction must succeed.  If you do not feel comfortable with this transaction, please ignore this letter, and pretend you never received this information. Thanks for your anticipated co-operation and my regards to your family.

 

PLEASE DO NOT CALL ME ON THE OFFICE PHONE FOR SECURITY REASONS. Feel free to contact me on E-mail: susanshaba2009@gmail.com
