Dear beloved ,
Due to the sudden death of my husband General Abacha the former head of state
of Nigeria in June 1998, I have been thrown into a state of hopelessness by
the present administration. I was browsing and I saw your e-mail,So i dicided
to write you  if your e-mail is real,I have lost confidence with anybody
within my country. I got your contacts through personal research, and had to
reach you through this medium. I will give you more details when you reply.
Due to security network placed on my daily affairs I can't visit the embassy
so that is why I have contacted you. My husband deposited $12.6million dollars
with a security firm abroad whose name is withheld for now till we
communicate. I will be happy if you can receive these funds and keep it safe I
assure you something good out of the funds in return for your assistance. I
will need your telephone/mobile numbers so that we can commence communication.

I will like you to acknowledge the receipt of this e-mail as soon as possible and
 treats with absolute confidentiality and sincerity.
Sincerely Yours,
Hajia Mariam
