On 11th March 2018, telephone number +27748720472 was reported as being used by scammers to pretend to be Graca Machel Mandela using email address as part of an Advance Fee Fraud Scam.

I am Mrs. Graca Machel Mandela the wife of South African icon and freedom fighter late Nelson Mandela The former President of the republic of South Africa from 1994 till1999 who died on December 5, 2013. Actually, I managed to get your contact details online here in Johannesburg South Africa in my desperate search for a trustworthy person to assist me in this confidential business transaction. (

As the Third wife of late Nelson Mandela, he deposited cash in a trust account on my name here in south Africa, for self keeping, he did this because he knew that upon his death, his lioness x-wife Winnie Mandela might use all her structural contacts within the South African Government to deny me what is due to me as his wife who looked after him all this period he was on sick bed. As his instinct pre-informed him, his fears is ongoing right now, and as a Mozambican, all the family members have swooped on me, Opposing me that I should hand over the assets to them, and good of a thing that when my late husband deposited the money into the trust fund account on my hand we used my sons name, Mr. Malengani Machel, who is currently living here in Johannesburg South Africa, for security reason.
My late husband, Nelson Mandela, deposited US$20.5 MILLIONS (Twenty Million, Five Hundred Thousand United States Dollars) in a bank here in South Africa through diplomatic channel, After his death, I and my son being in Johannesburg South Africa, decided to transfer this money out of South Africa for my family use since it is the only confidential thing we benefited. I have relinquished and waved most of his assets /estate willed to me as we are married in community of property for the interest of peace. This is genuine and not of criminal origin. I must then emphasize that this transaction is highly confidential and it is to be kept as such confidential. You will have to tell me what percentage of the money you will want to get for your kind assistance i.e. for receiving the funds for me and my son.
