Goodday Friend, I am Mariam Hajia Abacha the wife of the late Nigeria head of state, General Sani 
Abach..Following the sudden death of my husband General Sani Abacha the late former head of state 
of Nigeria in june (1998), I have been thrown into a state of utter confusion, frustration and 
hopelessness by the present civilian administration, I have been subjected to physical and 
psychological torture by the security agents in the country.

My son is still under detention arraigned before the federal high court of Nigeria for an offence 
he did not commit. As a widow that is so traumatized, 
I have lost confidence with anybody within the country. You must have heard over the media reports 
and the internet on the recovery of various huge sums of money deposited by my husband in different 
security firms abroad, some companies willingly give up their secrets and disclosed our money 
confidently lodged there or many outright blackmail. In fact the total sum discovered by the 
Government so far is in the tune of ($700). Million dollars. And they are not relenting to make me 
poor for life. I got your contacts through my personal research, and out of desperation decided to 
reach you through this medium.I will give you more information as to this regard as soon as you 

I repose great confidence in you hence my approach to you due to security network placed on my day 
to day affairs I cannot afford to visit the embassy so that is why I decided to contact you and I 
hope you will not betray my confidence in you. I have deposited the sum of ($15)million dollars 
with a security firm abroad whose name is witheld for now until we open communication.I shall be 
grateful if you could receive this fund into your account for safe keeping. 

This arrangement is known to you and my son Mustapha alone, as security is up my whole being.I am 
seriously considering to settle down abroad in a friendly atmosphere like yours as soon as this 
fund get into your account so that I can start all over again if only you wish, but if it is 
impossible,just help me in diverting this fund into your account which will accrue you (30%) of 
this fund. Please honesty is the watch word in this transaction. 

I will require your telephone and fax numbers so that we can commence communication immediately and 
I will give you a more detailed picture of things. In case you dont accept please do not let me out 
to the security as I am giving you this information in total trust and confidence .I will greatly 
appreciate if you accept my proposal in good faith. Please expedite action.May the Almighty GOD 
grant you your heart desire as you are willing to help me and my family, Amen. 

Best Regards
Mariam Hajia Abacha.
