I wish to introduce myself to you and the reason for my reaching out to you.I
am Muhammed Abacha the the son of the late military head of state General Sani
Abacha who died mysteriously on the 8th of June 1998.

Following the death of my father Gen. Sani Abacha,elections were successfully
held in the country and a civilian administration was sworn into power with the
assistance of the American Government under the leadership of President
Clinton. With the advent of the new democratic administration, a decision was
taken by the new president of Nigeria, Olusegun Obasanjo to probe and
ultimately prosecute all past military officers and their cohorts that served
in very strategic capacities in the last military regime of my father.I was
among those singled out to to be punished after a makeshift trial,for the
supposed deeds of my dad,ever since I have been in detention(the
past 3 years).

On monday the 24 September 2002,I was released,on the condition that I will
release the rest of my fathers money in my care,to the tune of $I.6b,which I
agreed. Now I have been released but kept under severe house arrest,I had
amassed monies running into hundreds of millions of dollars stashed in various
private foreign accounts around the world,most of wishhave been frozen.

Presently, I am confined under house arrest after my recent release from
detention and I am now constrained into seeking for this assistance today
because I cannot afford to let this goverment know that I still have funds
stashed away. Shortly, before my detention I hurriedly deposited the sum of
USD105 million with a security deposit firm for safekeeping,hence my seeking
your assistance to receive this fund.

I have since had this amount stashed away in a private security company in
Europe. I cannot send this money to any of my Bank Account abroad for reasons
mentioned earlier.

I hereby seek your assistance in moving and securing this money in your account
abroad. I will adequately compensate you with 15% of the total sum for your
assistance and co-operation with me to move this fund to your account for safe
keeping where I can easily utilise it.

The present administration has beamed their search light on any body remotely
related to me and my family and you strongly know for certain that I am under
surveillance and I cannot operate any of my bank accounts any more, due to
their being frozen.

I intend to safe guard and invest this amount of money abroad, but with a
reliable foreign business partner so that we can invest the funds in doing
business in your country. That is why I am soliciting your assistance and
cooperation as regards this business.Arrangements are being concluded with the
Security Company which has branches in Europe to receive the money in cash.

I cannot tell the full story of my predicament on this letter.
However you can get more information by checking the following web links.


Please note that I have a relocation plans for me and my family immediately you
have cleared and received this funds in your account. Please indicate your
willingness to assist me by sending to me the following information, your
company name and address,your private phone and fax numbers so that I can
contact you and commence the transaction in earnest.

I am waiting to hear from you very soon.

Best regards,

Muhammed Abacha
