419 scam targets Winnie to lure victims

In this case the scam uses Madikizela-Mandela's e-mail and claims that she has $45-million which she received as an "over inflated contract" that was awarded to her late former husband Nelson Mandela. The writer of the letter created two Gmail accounts under Madikizela-Mandela's name and her name is wrongly spelt. Her personal assistant, Zodwa Zwane, pointed out that Madikizela-Mandela didn't even have a Gmail account - from which the e-mail was sent - to start with. The e-mail further states that the funds are under an insurance company.
