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.
