Dear friend, DISTRESS APPEAL My name is sanjay abacha the Brother of the former President of Nigeria. I am writing you this letter to propose a business that will be of mutual benefit to you and me. After the death of my brother in 1998 most of his funds in Banks in Europe were confiscated by the Nigerian government. However, before his death he had deposited the sum of $26,000,000.00 US dollars with a Security and finance company in Europe. This fund was transferred via Diplomatic means to the office of the Security firm in Europe to be secured in a Bonded safe vault. I need your assistance to claim this fund from the security firm and invest part of it into a profitable business in your country under your supervision and control. As soon as the fund gets into your country you will then assist me and my family to come over to your country where we hope to start a new life. For your assistance you will be entitled to 20% of the total amount and 5% will set aside for miscellaneous purpose excluding any expenses incurred. Respond back to me immediately so I can give you more details and necessary documentations regarding this transaction. Note also that you must keep my contact with you secret and confidential because the lives of my family are not safe in Africa.
