Save Our Soul This might seem very deplorable for a person that you do not know, but as the title implies, I am Miss Zainab Abacha, the daughter of the late Head of State of the Federal Military Government Nigeria, late General Sanni Abacha. I am contacting you due to the present situation as regards the special panel set up by the present democratic administration under the Anti-Corruption Law passed mainly to recover what they termed "Abacha's looted money". This law is yet another smear campaign aimed mainly to frustrate, humiliate,dismember and widen the scope of hatred mated to our family. A personal vendetta by Obasanjo who was jailed by my father for plotting a coup d'eta against his administration. This highly calculated attempt by this administration cum Swiss government through bilateral relationship has taken away from us over US$3.4billion in Switzerland. The rampaging situation in our accounts abroad has yielded to this barbaric pressure another US$565m and just last month we were squished out of another US$395m and all these facts can be ascertain independently. This government is bent on destroying our family. You may be aware that my Elder brother, heir to the family, was languishing in prison but later released . Right now my mother has also been indicted for the same offence. Therefore, I am soliciting for genuine partners that I can invest the family fortune that is scattered all over the world. According to my estimation in West Africa alone, we still have about US$300m which have been coded and defaced in cash for security reasons. We intend to siphon abroad through your assistance for the purpose of investment in area of your interest. Should you find this interesting, contact me as a handsome reward of 30% of the total sum awaits you subject to our negotiation and agreement. Looking foreward to hearing from you. please contact me on my private E-mail adress: firstname.lastname@example.org
