Dear Sir,

It is with heartfelt hope that I write to seek your co-operation and assistance in the context stated below.

May I first introduce myself as Dr.(Mrs.) Mariam Abacha , the wife of the late general Sanni Abacha (former military head of states and president of the federal republic of Nigeria) who died suddenly on the 8th of June 1998 after the brief illness while still in power.

The sum of (us $ 33,400,000.00) thirty three million, four hundred thousand us state dollar only in his secretly willed in my favor by the late General (my husband).

This money is kept in a trust account with ecobanque international finance and security in Lome republic of Togo.

As it is equally required, the administration of my late husband's properties under authority of our family lawyer, however the current civilian administration of retired General Olusegun Obansanjo (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 during his tenure as military.

In pursuit of this vendetta, the present government has resolved to freeze all known assets of General Sanni Abacha (my late husband). Including properties at home and abroad and are presently embarking on sizing the bank account of my husband.

In fact, the attack on our family (the Abacha's) is so devastating to an extent of seizing our international passport; family accounts and even trying some members of our family in court for offence allegedly by my late husband.

In view of this grevious treat to our economy and personal survival, our family trustee have secretly protected the will, but seriously advised me to move (US $ 33, 400,000.00) thirty three million four hundred thousand dollars into an overseas account, hence the reason why I have choosing you I hope that you will come to my full assistance and unlimited co-operation.

In the mean time, there is a traveling embargo on us (the whole family members) and our local accounts are seized. We are corently living on good will of people who believe we can not be responsible for the sins of my late husband.

In view of this plait, I expect you to be trust wealthy and kind enough to respond to this distress call to save me and my children from hopeless future. And if you agree I will compensate you for your sincere and candid effort in this regard with 25% of the total amount of ( Us$33,400,000.00 ) thirty three million four hundred thousand united states dollars.

In that case, when the money is moved into your discreet account, you will be allowed to draw 30% in your favor, 10% of the fund will be set aside to reimburse miscellaneous expenses incurred by both parties before the conclusion of the transaction, while the remaining 60% will be invested meaningfully for my children future.

Our family lawyer has perfected arrangements with the Security Company consigned and has assured 100% risk free and safe operation.

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