You will be surprised to read from me, but please consider this letter as a genuine request from a family in dire need of your humble assistance. Firstly, I must introduce myself. I am Hadjia ( Mrs) Turai Yar'adua. Formal Nigeria's first lady and wife of Musa Yar'adua the late president of the Federal Republic of Nigeria. His excellency Musa Yaradua ( my late husband ) was having a running battle to be fit to continue as the president of Nigeria before his daeth. My late husband President Yar’Adua left Nigeria on 23 November 2009,where he has gone to receive treatment for pericarditis at a clinic in Saudi Arabia.Honestly speaking, the truth is that i knew my husband was not going to survive this ailment. It is also the reason why we have decided to return him to Nigeria from Saudi Arabia, Before he died my husband has asked me to contact a sincere foreign partner who would help secure a particular fund which he secretly deposited for our children's future.
My reason for contacting you is that my husband secretly deposited a huge sum of money with a financial institution Coutonou-Benin Republic. The amount in question is $66.6M USD (sixty Six Million Six Hundred thousand United States Dollars only).He made this deposit in the year 2007 when his doctors told him that his ailment is terminal. I want you and I to build a symbiotic relationship which you will never regret, his Deputy who is now President Federal Republic of Nigeria, the peoples democratic party and the Federal Executive council is about to probe my late husband's administration and conficate his estate and bank accounts because of internal wranglings at the seat of power.
Now my fear is how to secure this fund and move it to an offshore account in your home country for safe keeping. I and my husband got married in 1975 and we have 7 children ( 5 daughters and 2 sons).To be saddled with the responsibility of taking care of these children in the future is the reason I have confided in you to help secure this fund out of Affrica. This is the desires of my heart and the please of my late husband. You and I shall negotiate what percentage you will be willing to take for your efforts and contribution.
Please, let me know if you can assist me, so that I can give you more details on how we shall proceed. As I wait for your urgent Response, please treat this information as top secret.
Mrs Turai Yar'adua
