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. Please read and reply back ASAP with
your telephone number.

Sincerely Yours,

Hajia Mariam
