Sent:     Monday, March 22, 1999 8:39 AM
Subject:  Helping hand needed!!!!

My Dear Beneficiary,
It is with heartfelt hope that I write to seek your
co-operation and  assistance in the context stated
below:May I first introduce my self: I am DR.(MRS.)
MARIAM ABACHA,the wife of Late General Sani Abacha (former
Military head of state and President of the Federal
Republic of Nigeria) who died suddenly on 8th June
1998. I got your contact through the help of my
sister-inlaw that works  with the Canadian Chambers of
Commerce and Tourrism,due,I did not disclose
to her my humble intention for a honest foreigner who
will help save my life and my children. Having noted the
confidence reposed on your person by
the sponsor of the recommendation, I became convinced of your
capability and goodwill to assist me in receiving the sum of
US$20 Million secretly willed in my favour by the late general
(my husband).

This money was kept in a Security Company in Amsterdam Holland and
I have  all documents with me as of when it was deposited in a
Security Vault for  safe keeping.This money has been defaced for Security
reasons and also to  avoid it been spent by unauthorized persons.We have
been deliberating on  how to invest this fund abroad in a confidential
manner until we came to a  conclusion to use it to buy houses and part
of it will be used for non-speculative investments in your
country.However,the current civilian  administration of retired General
Olusegun Obasanjo(The President of the  Federal Republic of Nigeria) is
seeking vengeance on the Abacha family because of the
life prison jail  sentence confirmed on him by my late husband while in
office. In pursuit of  this vendetta,the present Government have resolved to
freeze all known  assets of General Sani Abacha including properties at
home and abroad and  are presently embarking on to seize the various bank
accounts of my husband  in Switzerland,UK and Australia. In fact, the attack
on our family (The  Abacha's) is so devastated to an extent of seizing our
travelling  passport,family accounts and even trying some members
of our family in  court for offences allegedly committed by my late
husband..My first son Mohammed Abacha who was arristed
and incacerated for the past 3years was just reliesed
from prison on the agreement to refund $1.5 Billion to
the Federal Government of Nigeria allegedly stollen by
my late Husband.We are not ready to comply to this as
most of the family assets and bank accounts abroad
have been Freezen by the Obasanjo regime.

In view of this grevious threat to our Economic and
personal survival,our  family trustee have secretly protected the will,The
Security Company has  called me to do something about claiming this
consignment because of the demurrage it is incurring and I told them we
come and claim it very soon but they seriously advised me to move the fund
into an overseas  amount, hence the reason why I have chosen you and
hope that you will come  to my full assistance and unlimited
co-operation.In the meantime,there is a travelling embargo on us(the whole
family members) and our local accounts are seized. We are currently living
on goodwill of people who believe we cannot be held
responsible for the  sins of my late husband. In view of this plight, I
expect you to be  trustworthy and kind enough to respond to this
distressed call to save me  and my children from a hopeless future. And if
agree to help, we will  compensate you sincerely for your candid effort in
this regard with 25% of  the total amount of $20 Million US Dollars.
In that case, when the money ($20 Million) is moved
into your discrete account, you will be allowed to withdraw 25%
in your favour,while 10% has been set aside for any
expenses you might incure  (There are demurrage to pay before the fund is
and claimed by you.)during the process of securing this fund.
The remaining 65% will be invested meaningfully for my
children's future. My cousin (DR.FEMI MARTIN) has perfected arrangements
with the Trust  Company concerned and has been assured 100% risk free
and safe operation.What I demand from you now is to arrange to
visit the Finance  Company where this money is being deposited and claim
it as the bona-fide owner.

And in due course, please all contacts must be made through DR FEMI MARTINS
through this E-mail address:
femimartins@ecplaza.net  or  femimartins@breathe.com  Tel:234-803-7160531.

I look forward to your quick response while thanking
you for your co-operation. In view of all above
details, I request you to keep this letter and
co-operation highly confidential.

Best wishes,
