Dear Sir,

I am contacting you in view of the fact that we will be of great 
assistance to each other  likewise developing a cordial business 
relationship. As I am interested in your kind of business and wishing to invest in 
your country.

I am Mrs. Maryam Abacha, wife to the late Nigerian military Head of 
State. General Sanni Abacha who died on the 8th of June 1998 still in 
office due to a protracted illness. I believe you must be aware of the  
face-off between my family and the present Civilian Government of 
President Olusegun Obasanjo who wants all my Late husbands foreign bank 
accounts and assets confiscated because of the monetary excesses of my late 
husbands Military regime. Currently, within my reach is the sum of forty 
Million  United States Dollars (US$  40,000,000.00) cash, which I 
intend to use for investment purposes especially in your country. 

This huge sum of money came as result of a pay back contract deal 
between my late husband and a Russian firm on our country's Multi billion 
Dollar Ajaokuta Steel plant/complex. The Russian partners had since 
returned my husband's share of US$40Million after his death and lodged it 
with a BANK. Right now the new Civilian Government have revoked all our 
licenses that allows us to own financial and oil companies and has 
frozen some of my late husbands bank account in Switzerland and America.

In view of these I acted very fast to withdraw this US$40M from the 
bank and lodged in a private security COMPANY'S vault well preserved and 
packaged in (1)trunk box as Family Deposits (FD) No record ever existed 
concerning the money neither is the money traceable by the Government 
because there is no documents showing that we received the money from 
the Russians.

However, due to the current situation in the country concerning the 
present civilian Government  hostile attitude towards my family, it has 
become quite impossible for me to make use of the money within the 
country. Thus I seek your assistance in moving this family Deposits (FD) into 
your account for safekeeping pending my arrival in your country for 
investment purposes.

Bearing in mind that your assistance is needed in this regards, I 
propose a commission of 20% (TWENTY PERCENT) of the total sum to you for the 
expected services (negotiable)and 10% for local and international 
expenses if any.

May I at this point, emphasize the high level of confidentiality which 
this business demands whatever your decision and hope you will not 
betray the trust and confidence which I repose in you. 

Please don't forget to indicate your convenient phone and fax number 
where we can always contact you.

However, you may need to give me sufficient assurance that you will not 
sit on this fund when it is finally remitted into your account I 
believe I can trust you and I am willing to accept from you any useful and 
profitable investment proposal advice in your country. please direct your 
response to this my private email

Best wishes,

Mrs. Maryam Abacha
