REPLY TO: email@example.com Dear Beloved. I am Hajia Mariam Abacha, wife of the late Head Nigerian of State,General Sani Abacha who died on the 8th of June 1998 while still on active duty. I am contacting you In view of the fact that we will be of great assistance to each other likewise developing a cordial relationship. I currently have within my reach the sum usd$30 Million United States Dollars in cash,which I intend to use for investment purposes specifically in your country.This money came as a result of a pay back contract deal between my a late husband and Russian firm on our country's Multi-Billion Dollars Ajaokuta Steel Plant. The Russian partners returned my husbands share of US$12.6m after his death and lodge it with my late husband's security company in Nigeria of which I was then a director. Right now the new civilian government have intensified their probe on my husband's financial resources and they have revoked our licenses that allows us to own a financial and oil company. In view of this,I acted very fast to withdraw the US$30 million from the company's vault and deposited it in a privately erected security safe company in Europe. I have since declared the security company bankrupt. No record ever existed concerning the money neither is the money traceable by the Government because there is no documentation showing that we received the money from the Russians.Due to the current situation in the country concerning Government attitude towards my family, for your eyes only http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/africa/845456.stm It has become quite impossible for me to make use of this money due to the fact that we are unable to travel out of our country and our travelling document has long be seized.thus I seek assistance to transfer this money into any country for investment. On your consent, I shall expect you to contact me urgently to enable us discuss details of this transaction. Bearing in mind that your assistance is needed to transfer the funds,I propose a commission to you for the expected services and assistance. Your urgent response is highly needed so as to stop further contacts. All correspondences must be on contact my son Mustpha.Abacha,who will give you more details on our transaction. I must use this opportunity to implore you to exercise the most utmost indulgence to keep this matter extraordinarily confidential whatever your decision while I await your prompt response, your Telphone and Fax Number.
