Dear Sir/Madam.

In recent times over the radio in AMERICA or even in ASIA about my family regarding huge sums of money stacked in foreign banks on different names for business. I believe is a legacy we came to meet when we became the head of state. It does not matter whether you are small or big but your ability to help me sort our things in mostly needed not. You can as well reach my family lawyer Barrister Coker Williams on his personal Telephone line 234-1-7757381. I do not justify but it has happened so I need you to help me survive in life. Following the sudden death of my husband General Sani Abacha the late former head of state of Nigeria in August 1998 I have been thrown into state of utter confusion, frustration and hopelessness by the present civilian administration. I have been subjected to physical and psychological torture by the security agents in the country. My son 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 have know confidence with anybody within the country. You must have heard over the media reports and the internet on the recovery of various huge sums of money deposited by my husband in different security firms abroad, some companies willingly give
up their secrets and disclosed our money confidently lodged there or many outright blackmail. In fact the total sum $700 Million Dollars. And they are not relenting to make me poor for life. I got your contacts through my personal research and out of desperation decided to reach you through this medium.I will give you more information as to this regard as soon as possible you reply. I repose great confidence in you hence my approach to you due to security network place on my day to day affairs I cannot afford to visit the embassy so that is why I decided to contact you and I hope you will not let me out to security personal. I have deposited the sum of $ 286 Million with asecurity firm abroad whose name is Withheld for now until we open communication.I shall be grateful if you could receive this fund into your account for safe keeping. This arrangement is known to you and my son Mustapha alone. So my son will deal directly with you as
security is up my whole being. I am seriously considering to settle down abroad I and friendly atmosphere like yours as soon as this fund get into your account so that I can start all over again if only you wish.
But if it is impossible just help me in your account which will accrue you 30% of this fund.Please honestly is the watch word in this transaction.I will require your telephone and fax numbers so that we can commence communication immediately and I will give you a more detailed picture of things. In case you don't accept please do not let me out to the security as I am giving you this information I total trust and confidence.
I will greatly appreciate if you accept my proposal in
good faith.Please expedient action.

Sincerely yours.

Hajia Mariam Abacha.
For: The Family.
