Dear Sir,

I am Mrs. Miriam Abacha, widow of the late Gen. Sani Abacha former military head of state who died as a result of cordial arrest.

I got your contact through my relentless search for a good, reliable and well to do person or company that can handle this transaction properly.

I therefore decided to contact you in confidence so that I can be able to move out the sum of US$30,000,000.00{Thirty million United state Dollars only} which was secretly defaced and sealed in Two big metal boxes for security reasons.

I personally therefore appeal to you for your urgent assistance to move this money into your country where I believe it will be safe since I can not leave the country due to the rustication of movement imposed on me and members of my family by the Nigerian Government.

You can contact me through my email address. Upon the receipt of your response, my Lawyer shall arrange with you towards the effective completion of this transaction. However, arrangement has been put

In place to move this money out of the country in batches in the secret vault through a diplomatic security company to any of the the West African countries or possible Europe.

Conclusively, I have decided to offer you 25% of the total sum while 10% will be for whatever expenses that will be incurred while65%are to be held on trust by you subsequent to our free movement by the Nigerian Government.

Please reply urgently and treat with absolute confidentiality and sincerity.

Best regards.


NOTE; before you can decide to assist me I will prefer you go through this website first, because of people using my name of my family. Website: News from the BBC.
