I am sorry for the embarrassment this letter might cause you as we have
not had any correspondence before this letter. I got your address through
my nephew who works with Nigerian Military Chamber of Commerce industry
and Mining during his interent research for a reliable and trustworthy partner
who l can do business with though l did not disclose the nature of the business
l intend to do with whoever he recommend for me.

I am DR. MRS MARIAM ABACHA, wife of the late Nigeria Head of State, General
Sanni Abacha who died on the 8th of June 1998 while still on active duty.
I am contacting you in view of the fact that we will be of great assistance
to each other likeness developing a cordial relationship. I currently have
within my reach the sum of Twenty - Five Million US Dollars (US$25,000,000.00)
cash which l intends to use for investment, like Real Estate Development
specifically in your country. This money came as a payback contract deal
between my late husband and a Russian Firm on our countries Multi-billion
dollars Ajaokuta Steel Plant. The Russian Partners returned my husband's
Share of USD$25,000,000.00 after the death of my husband and Lodged in my
husband's Security Company of which l am director right now, the new Civilian
Government have intensified their probe on my husband? Financial and oil

In view of these, l acted fast to withdraw the US$25,000,000.00 from the
company vault and deposited it in a Security Company. I have since declared
the Security Company bankrupt. No record ever existed concerning the money
traceable by the government because there is no documentation showing that
we received the money from the Russian. Due to the current situation in
the country concerning government attitude towards my family, it has become
quite impossible for me to make use of this money within. Let me refer you
to the front page of this day newspaper of 10th March 2001. You can check
it through their website www.thisdayonline.com the present government in
Nigeria had frozen and seized all our bank accounts both here in Nigeria
and abroad. Thus consent l shall expect you to contact me urgently to enable
us discuss in detail about this transaction. Bearing in mind that your assistance
is needed to transfer this fund, I proposed a percentage of 30% of the total
sum to you for the expected service and assistance, 15% for offsetting minor
expenses incurred in the course of this transaction. Your urgent response
is highly needed as to stop further contacts.

All correspondence must be by the email address above. I will give you my
Tel numbers where you can contact me when I hear from you. I must use this
opportunity to implore you to exercise the utmost indulgence to keep this
matter extraordinarily confidential whatever your decision while await your
prompt response.

NB: Because of the security being mounted on the members of my family, l
has decided that this transaction exist between you and my nephew Dr.Bello
Martin. Remember to include your private Tel/fax or mobile number for easy

Best Regards.
