Dear Sir,

This message may be a Surprise to you because we have not communicated
before through email or phone. However,  It's Just our urgent need for a
foreign partner that made us to contact you for a future joint investment
with you in your  country. We got your contact when we were searching for
an European based business man who can partner with us to  invest our
funds .  My aims of writing this letter is for you to assist my family in
saving our funds and investing our  funds.
I am Mrs. Maryam , the family of the late Gen.Sanni Abacha former Nigerian
Military Head of State. My late husband  died  died  as a result of
Cardiac Arrest 10 years ago. Ever Since the death of my husband my family
has been under  restriction of movement.
The civilian government of Mr. Obasanjo made things difficult for my
family.The discovery of my husband's Bank  Account by the Nigerian
Government with Swiss Bank in which more our family funds was lodged did
not help  matters. The then government of Mr.Obasanjo insisted that my
late husband's funds in the swiss bank should be returned  back to him. I
refused to do it so we went to court. Although the funds were all
deposited right before my late husband  became the head of state, but the
court ruled that  part of the funds should be returned back to the
The court also ruled that $70 Million only should be left for me and my
family. It was a terrible moment for my family  because the then
government did not permit me to do business or do investment both in
Nigeria and outside Nigeria.  Now, another government has come in and my
family has been allowed to start our family business again.
We then decided to contact you in confidence so that the funds will be
transferred to your country and invested in your  country because of the
strong economy of your country.

in the economy of your country. All  investment will be done with by you

of this business will be reimbursed immediately the funds have been
remitted to your country.

We hereby guarantee you that this is our family funds, it is not illegal
funds and it is not from any illegal source.  Though you have to maintain
high degree of confidentiality on this matter because we want to be
successful in this  business.
I will give you all proof of deposit and existence of money once assured
and fully satisfied with your capability and  honesty. I hope this will be
the beginning of a prosperous relationship between my family.

plan will be forwarded to you as soon as we  receive your response.
