<*xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />
It is with heartfelt hope that I write to seek your co-operation and assistance in the context stated below: May I first introduce my self: I am Alima Abacha, the daughter of Late General  Sani Abacha (former Military head of state and Commander in Chief of the Federal Republic of Nigeria) who died suddenly on 8th June 1998.
I got your contact through the help of my sister-in-law who is A Tourist. Although I did not disclose to her my humble intention for a honest foreigner who will help save my family. Having noted the confidence reposed on your person by my sister in-law, I became convinced of your capability and good will to assist me in receiving the sum of U.S $ 40Million secret "will” of my late father written in favour of our family be got of me.

This money is kept in a Security Company in {<*xml:namespace prefix = st1 ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:smarttags" />London} United Kingdom; I have all covered documents with me. We have been deliberating on how to invest this fund abroad in a confidential manner. However, the former civilian administration of retired General olusegun Obasanjo and the new admonition now (The former President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria) sort for vengeance on our family because of the life prison jail sentence confirmed on him by my late father while in power.

In pursuit of this vendetta, He resolved to freeze all known assets of our late father {General Sani Abacha} including properties at home and abroad. He embarked on seizing the various bank accounts of our father in Switzerland, UK and Australia.

In fact, the attack on our family is so devastated to an extent of seizing our traveling passport, family accounts and even dragging some of our family members to court for offences allegedly imposed committed on our father, Because he is know more. My brother Mohammed Abacha who was arrested and incarcerated for the past 3years was just released from prison on the agreement to refund $1.5 Billion to the Federal Government of Nigeria allegedly embezzled by my late father. We are not ready to comply with this as most of the family assets and bank accounts abroad have been frozen by the Obasanjo regime.

In view of this grievous threat to our Economic and personal survival, our family trustee have secretly protected the {will},The Security Company has called us to do something about claiming this consignment now that Obasango is no more in office or power, because of the demurrage it is incurring and I told them we would come and claim it very soon but they seriously advised me to move the fund into an overseas amount, hence the reason why I have chosen to come in contact with you is that i hope you will come to my aid to render me your full assistance and unlimited co-operation. Meanwhile, there is a traveling embargo on us (the whole family members) and our local accounts are seized. We are currently living on goodwill of people who believe we cannot be held responsible for the sins of our late father.

In view of this plight, I expect you to be trust worthy and kind enough to respond to this distressed call to save me and our family from a hope less future. And if you agree to help, we will compensate you sincerely for your candid effort. In that case, when the money ($40Million) is moved into your discrete account, the money will be invested in your business in your country or any countries of your wish in a profitable business under your very cares.

My lawyer (Barrister Yengeni Tony) has perfected arrangements with the Trust Company concerned and has been assured 100% risk free and safe operation. What I demand from you now is to contact the Finance Company where this money is being deposited and apply to claim it as the bona-fide owner.

In view of all above details, I request you to keep this letter and co-operation highly confidential even if you are not interested.
