Dear Friend;
I am Dr. (Mrs.) Mariam Abacha (GCFR), wife to the late Nigeria Head of State, General Sani Abacha, who died on 8th of June 1998 of heart problems while still on active duty. I am contacting you because of my need to deal with persons whom my family had no previous
personal relationship. Since the death of my husband,my family has been subjected to all sorts of harassment and intimidation with lots of negative reports emanating from the government and the press about my husband.
The present government has also ensured that all bank accounts are frozen,and all assets seized. It is in view of this that I seek your assistance in the transfer of the sum of Eighty Five Million United Dollars, which my family and I intends to use for investment purposes specifically in your country, being the very last of my family funds in my possession and control unknown to the government.
An earlier attempt in the physical movement of the sum of U.S$55,000.00 was to no avail as the money was confiscated and my passport impounded at Murtala Mohammed International Airport Lagos, in August
1998.This money now in question came as a result of a
pay-back contract deal between my Husband and Russian Firm in our country's Multi-Billion Dollars Ajaokuta Steel Plant.
The Russian's returned my Husband's share of U.S$85,000,000.00 after his death, and lodged it in my Late Husband's Security Company of which I am a director.
Right now, the new civilian Government has intensified their probe on this family's financial sources; frozen all our foreign & local account,revoked our oil licenses, and even detained my so (Mohammed) on alleged financial misappropriation,pending the outcome of their investigation.
 In view of these facts, I acted fast to withdraw the U.S $85,000,000.00 from the Company's vault and deposited it in a privately owned security safe in Europe of which I alone know of it's existence. I have since declared the Security Company bankrupt. No record whatsoever exists concerning this money traceable by the Government, because there is no documentation showing that we received the money from Russians.
I wish to discretely handed the money into your care with your help, to be invested in your country's oil and energy sector (under your professional guidance),and to help start operation in an Oil Refinery which my Late Husband built in Brazil.
Bearing in mind that your assistance is needed to transfer this money into your account ,I propose a commission of 10% (TenPercent) of the total sum to you/your company for the>expected services and assistance. Your urgent response is highly needed soas to stop further contact. Note:All correspondence must be by this security e-mail
address: which personally and privately belongs to me and please address me with my full name including the initials.
I must also use this opportunity to implore you to exercise the utmost indulgence to keep this matter extraordinarily confidential, whatever your decision, while I wait your prompt response.
Best Regards,
DR. (MRS.)Alhaja Mariam Abacha
