Alhaji Mohammed Abacha 2/8 Gidado drive,Gra, kano - Nigeria. Tel: 234-80-755-22249 Dear , Please read this latter and kindly get back to me for more details. View the websites below for clarification:- http://www.thisdayonline.com/nview.php?id=29473 > http://www.vanguardngr.com/articles/2002/headline/f110032005.html http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/africa/845456.stm I write you this letter in good faith and to the glory of almighty who brought me out of detention safely after all the allegations levelled against me after the death of my Father late General Sani Abacha (former Nigerian military head of states).Since my father's death and my detention, my family has lost a lot of money due to vindictive government officials who are bent on dealing with us. I am contacting you on this private note based on some funds which my late father deposited in the central bank of Nigeria (CBN).I am looking for a trustworthy foreign partner who can assist me in receiving and accommodating the funds for investment purposes abroad. This money is presently in a Vault deposit in CBN. The funds was of course acquired by my late father, he deposited the funds as a foreign vault belonging to a foreigner who executed contract in Nigeria. The amount is US$66 million. He handed over the documents to me before his death. Considering my present condition with the government, I cannot make this claim on my own because if the government finds out that this money belongs to my father, it will be confiscated as they have confiscated all my late fathers' money within our reach both in Nigeria and in Swiss bank abroad. This fund US$66 million is our only hope to live on. I am contacting you because the foreigners name on the deposit certificate shares the same surname with you making it easier for you to make this claim as the beneficiary of the funds without any difficulty or suspicion. As soon as I hear from you, I will give you all necessary details as to how we intend carrying out the whole transaction. Please, do not entertain any fears; I am assuring you of success and safety of this transaction. If you are interested in assisting me please send me your consent to me ASAP. Please send also your telephone number for us to discuss further. But should you not be interested, you may also ignore this letter and respect my trust in you by not exposing this transaction to anybody for safety reasons. I look forward to working with you. Thank you very much and God bless. Alhaji Mohammed Abacha.
