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 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.

Sincerely Yours,

Hajia Mariam.
