FROM THE DESK OF HAJIA(MRS)MARIAM.S.ABACHA
#26,ABUBAKAR RIMI WAY,
OFF MNAMDI AZIKIWE ROAD,
Compliments of the season.I did like to send to you the best wishes of good health and success in your
pursuits particularly through my proposal as contained
in this letter.
I am Mrs.Mariam Abacha,the widow of the late Gen.Sani Abacha former Nigerian Military Head of State who died mysteriously as a result of Cardiac Arrest. Since after my husband?s death my family is under
restriction of movement and that not withstanding,we are being molested,policed and our Bank Account both here and abroad are being frozen by the Nigerian
Civilian Government.Furthermore,my elder son is in detention by the Nigerian Government for more
interrogation about my husband?s assets and some vital documents.Following the recent discovery of my husband?s Bank Account by the Nigerian Government with
Swiss Bank in which the huge sum of US$700 Million and DM450 Million was logged.I therefore decided to contact you in confidence that I was able to move out the sum of US$43.3Million Dollars,sealed in two Metal Boxes for security reasons.
I therefore personally,appeal to you seriously and religiously for your urgent assistance to move this money into your country where I believe it will be safe since I cannot leave the country due to the restriction of movement imposed on the members of my family by the Nigerian Government.
You can contact me through this my private email address (email@example.com)and I shall ask my son MUSTAPHA to contact you,He will funish you with the effective and logical movement of the money.
However,as soon as you indicate your interest my son shall send you the Air-Way Bill of the Luggage and other related documents so that you can help to claim
the Luggage and subsequently transfer to your personal or company?s account.
Conclusively,we have agreed to offer you 20% of the total sum,10%will be for expenses incurred during the cause of this transaction,while 70% is to be held
on trust by you until we can decide on a suitable
business investment in your country subsequent to our free movement by the Nigerian Government.
Please reply urgently and treat with absolute
confidentiality and sincerity.
