It is my humble pleasure to write you this letter Irrespective of the fact that you do not know me.
However, I am in search of a reliable and trustworthy Person that can handle a confidential transaction of this nature.
I am KABIRU TAHIRU TURAK, a family lawyer to our former military ruler, General Sani Abacha who died Suddenly in power some years ago. Since his untimely demise, the family has suffered a lot of harassment from the regimes that succeeded him. The regime and even the present civilian government are made up of Abacha's enemies. Recently, the wife was banned from Traveling outside Kano State their home state as a kind of house arrest.
Although, a lot of money have been recovered from Mrs. Abacha since the death of her husband by the Present government, there's still huge sums of money in hard currencies that we have been able to move out Of the country for safe keeping to the tune of US$60 Million.
This money US$60 Million is in three trunk boxes already in Europe and if you are interested, we will prepare you as the beneficiary of the total funds, and you will share 30% of the total funds after clearance from the Security Company.
It may interest you to know that recently similar transaction was carried out with one MR. Paulo Zigalo of Milano Incorporated Italy who came to the security company after our agreement cleared one of the boxes containing $20million, on my arrival to Italy for our agreement this man was no where to be seen, this is how we lost one of the box. So I am being careful this time.
Note, there is no risk involved in this project because l am involved, as Abacaâs confident.
Please you should keep this transaction a top secret and we are prepared to do more business with you pending your approach towards this project. I await your urgent response.
