Attention: I am Mrs. Mariam Abacha, the widow of the late Gen. Sanni Abacha former Nigerian Military Head of State who died mysteriously as a result of Cardiac Arrest. Since after my husband?s death, my family is under restriction of movement and that notwithstanding, we are being molesting; policing and our Bank Account both here and abroad are being frozen by the Nigerian Civilian Government. Furthermore, my elder son is in detention by the Nigerian Government for more interrogation about my husband?s assets and some vital document. Following the recent discovery of my husband?s Bank Account by the Nigerians Government with Swiss Bank and which the huge sum of US$700 Million and Dutch 450 million was logged. I therefore decided to contact you in confidence that I was able to move out the sum of US$62.5 Million Dollars, into a bank in Europe. I personally therefore appeal to you seriously and religiously for your urgent assistant to move this money into your country where I believe it will be safe and be used for charity work since I cannot leave the country due to the restriction movement imposed on the members of my family by the Nigerian Government. Once you indicate your interest to assist me in this transaction I will give you my family Lawyer contact phone and fax numbers with the Chambers address who will arrange with you for face to face meeting outside Nigerian in order to liaise with you toward effective completion of this transaction for charity work since my movement is restricted and my telephone conversation is being monitored. However, you will be required to claim/receive this fund on my behalf from the Bank in Europe where this fund is deposited. Conclusively, we have agreed to offer you 30% of the total sum, while 70% is to be held on trust by you for charity work in your country or in any country of your choice. Please, reply urgently and treat with absolute confidentiality and sincerity. For further information and enquiries, get back to me so that I will direct you to my family lawyer. Best regards, Mrs. Mariam Abacha. --- This email has been checked for viruses by Avast antivirus software. https://www.avast.com/antivirus
