From: Mohammed Abacha Dear , In a drive to ensure the safety of family Funds for safe keeping and investment, I wish to inform you that all necessary modalities have been concluded and the funds have left to Europe last week by Express Cargo Flight (Diplomatic Delivery Agency). Note carefully the content of the crates is money \"U.S Dollar $14 Million Cash\" but I did not disclose it to the Courier Services as Money, rather I informed them that the crates contains Vital \"DOCUMENTS AND EXPENSIVE AFRICA ART WORK\" belonging to a family friend and also business partner (that's you). On no account should you disclose the content of the crate (Two Trunk Box) with the Diplomatic Courier Services for fear of betrayal. So do not allow them to know that the content is money you have to bear in mind my family situation. Please note that the deposit papers are ready and will be forwarded in due course. Please send me your contact address and also full name and phone number immediately through my email address. Best Regards. Yours faithfully, Mohammed Abacha.
