It is with hope that I write to seek your help in
the context below.
I am Hajia Mariam Abacha, wife of Nigeriaís former
head of state; Late General Sani Abacha, whose
sudden death occurred on the 8th of June 1998. Since
my husband died, I have been thrown into a state of
utter confusion, frustration and hopelessness by the
present civilian administration. The security agents
in the country have subjected me to physical and
psychological torture. My son (Mohammed Abacha) is still under detention
arraigned before the federal high court of Nigeria for an offence he did not
commit. As a widow that is so traumatized, I am
hopeless with my present faith. You must have heard
over the media reports on the recovery of various
sums of money deposited by my late husband with
various security firms. Some companies willingly
gave up their secret and disclosed our money
confidently lodged there,
or many, outright blackmail. Infact the total sum
discovered by the
government so far is in the tune of $700 Million USD
and they are not
relenting to make me and my children poor for life. I came in contact
with your name and
address through my personal research
and would want to have faith and confidence in you
as I view you to be a responsible personality. I
have no doubt about your capacity and goodwill to
assist me in receiving into your custody( for
safety) the sum of $40.3 Million USD willed and
deposited safely in my favour by my late husband.
This money is currently kept in Safe Deposit Box
(SDB) at a security firm within Europe. As it is
legally required, the
administration of my late husbandís property is under
the authority of the familyís Lawyer (Attorney)Barrister
The investigative teams set up by my government have
submitted their report after freezing almost all our
account. Fortunately, our family lawyer had secretly
protected the personal will of my husband from the
notice of the investigators and have strictly
advised that the $40.3m USD be urgently moved to an
overseas account of any trust worthy but ANNONYMOUS
foreign family friend without delay, for security
reasons. All our traveling papers have been seized
by the government thereby preventing us from
traveling and all the local and international outfit
of our business empire seized. This sum of money is
our only hope to stay alive. I have therefore agreed
to compensate your goodself with 20% of the total
deposit when you finally recieve the deposit box
from the security firm and its contents safely
lodged in your account. They have equally guaranteed
100% risk-free and smooth transfer.Please reach me immediately and send to me
your confidential telephone and fax numbers so that I can reach you as soon as
For obvious security reasons, it is imperative that you keep all our
communication very secret. Do not mention my family,s name or disclose the
transaction to anybody.Please do not expose me to my government.

Hajia[Mrs.]Mariam Abacha
