From: Dr.Kenn Tutu. Nigerian Railway Corporation Okpara Avenue, GRA Coal City - Enugu Enugu- state ATTENTION: CEO / PRESIDENT RE: NEED YOUR ASSISTANCE Well, I am Dr.Kenn Tutu. the Director, Nigerian Railway Corporation. I was appointed by the Late Head of State, Gen. Sani Abacha before his death. I write to seek your assistance for her Excellency Mrs. Mariam Abacha, the wife of the Late Head of State and her family. She is like a target in the battlefield surrounded by convictions. She is faced with the problems of property and account confiscation from our government. The family has lost almost all the legacies left behind by the Late Head of State. She needs help to survive the heat of democratic government. She has been misled inadvertently by the people she believed would help her. Our government having seized all their accounts in America and Europe, there?s some money deposited in our Local Bank by her late husband which she can not transfer out because she?s being monitored by security agents. She consulted me to use our Ministry?s account to transfer the money out. This is why we need your assistance, with the help of the bank director who is also a friend to her husband while alive. We will transfer the money through our account to your account. The bank director has assured us of his assistance after discussing with him. We want to know if you can receive the money into your account without any problem. The amount is fifty three million five hundred thousand United States Dollars (USD53.5M). If you can assist us by providing an account where the money will be deposited, or in the alternative, we can arrange for a suitable place where we can convey the money via diplomatic means for you to go there and claim the consignment. Her Excellency will be glad to welcome you and this will be a top-secret transaction. She offers USD3M for your assistance. The bank director has kept the account secret all this while from been seized by the government. Please consider the plight of this woman and signify your interest and willingness to assist her by sending me a fax immediately with the above fax # or send me mail. Her Excellency is loosing everything to our government all because her husband is dead. Her son Mohammed Abacha has been accused for stealing USD1.8b. BBC interviewed him over that. Note: We got your contact from America / Nigeria Chamber of Commerce and after going through your profile, we decided to contact you. Please we need your quick response to know the next thing to do. Best Regards and God bless. Dr.Kenn Tutu. (Dir. Nigerian Railway Corporation) __________________________________________________________________ Get Tiscali Broadband From £15:99 http://www.tiscali.co.uk/products/broadband
