Dear Sir,

Assalamualaikum. warahmatullahi. wabarakatuh,

This letter might  surprise you because we  have met neither in person nor by  correspondence. But I believe it is one day  that you get to know Somebody either in  physical or through correspondence. We  searched out your contact today in the  internet and We decided to write this letter   to you. My aims of writing this letter is for  you to  assist our  family in saving our funds in your country   pending  our arrival in your country to invest  in business. I am Mrs. Mariam and my son is  Mohammed,  the  family of the late Gen.Sanni  Abacha former Nigerian Military Head of State who died mysteriously  as  a  result of  Cardiac Arrest. Ever Since  the death of my husband my family has  been   under restriction of movement . Following the  recent discovery of my husband's  Bank Account by the Nigerian  Government with Swiss Bank in  which more   than (US $618  Million) was lodged. We then decided  to  contact you in confidence that I  was able to move out the sum of US$7 Million ,  Which was secretly lodged in a bank.  We  therefore personally appeal to you seriously  and religiously for your assistance to move this (US$7  Million) into  your country where We believe it will  be safe  since We  cannot leave the country due to the  restriction of movement imposed on the members  of my family by the  Nigerian Government. We  desperately  want to safeguard these last  funds that remains for our family because the  Swiss government has  decided to hand over all  my family funds back  to the Nigeria  president.
However,our family have agreed to reward you  with 40% of the  total sum while 60% is to be  held on  trust by you until we decide on a suitable  business investment in  your country. We  hereby guarantee you that this is not a  government money, it is not drug money  and it  is not from arms  deal. Though
you have to maintain high degree of  confidentiality on this matter. I  will  give  you all proof of deposit and existence of  money once assured and fully satisfied with  your capability and honesty. I hope  this will be the beginning of a  prosperous  relationship between my
Nevertheless if you are for any reason not  interest, kindly inform us immediately so that we will  look for another  person.
