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
