maltreated and humiliated along side with my kids for no just reason.

inheritance from a security company in London .  I will send you detail of
my investment plans in my next correspondence to you. I solely want to
invest this money in your country with all legal backs. We are suffering
under the leadership of the bad government and this is why I want to run
away from my country to settle in your country for high security reasons.

I am sending this proposal with a broken heart and I believe that you are
going to give me a sympathetic attention. I regret the inconvenience it
might cause you based on the condition that we have not met before,  But I
so much believe that Allah is in total control.

I am Hajia . Munirat Fatima Abacha, the wife of Mohammed Abacha, son of
the late head of state of Federal Republic of Nigeria - General Sani
Abacha.I am contacting you in view of the fact that we will be of great
assistance to each other like wise developing a cordial relationship as
true Islamic families.

My husband along with his late father and top officials of their past
administration has been accused of looting several Billion United States
Dollars from the Nigeria Government. The current attitude of the present
government towards my family has indeed made life quite unbearable and sad
to us trying to leave us on empty handed.  Make reference to this BBC

for us. Fortunately, Mohammed my Husband has Eighteen million and Six
hundred thousand and United States Dollars (US$18.6 million) cash, which
he intended to use for investment purposes in an Islamic nation abroad for
hotel and recreation reservation centre, while part will be diverted into
charity and destitute  homes to assist the life of the needy and helpless.
This money is kept in a private security company in London now. This money
was deposited for safe keeping in the security vault of a freighting
agency here by my husband preparatory to being air lifted abroad for
investment purposes before his arrest leaving a clause that it could only
be claimed by an expatriate partner. It is only my husband and myself that
know where the money is kept with full information on documents with our
trusted family lawyer.

Due to the current situation in the country concerning government’s
vendettas towards my family, we seek your assistance to transfer this
money out of London for the purpose of investment as intended by my
husband. Note that my family is currently being probed by this present
government for alleged involvement in misappropriation of public funds
during my father-in-law's regime. Towards this effect, an embargo
restricting my family members from traveling or carrying out financial
transactions without their express permission is in force.

Right now, my husband (Mohammed) is under arrest and is being detained in
connection to the above and other activities of his late father. However,
I have an arrangement on how to freight this money to you after receiving
some assurances from you of the safety our own share and that you will
only take the commission that we will offer you. This money personally
belongs to my husband and he intends that it still be used for investment
in Islamic nations only.

The freighting company to be used has now been introduced to me and as
soon as we receive your readiness to assist us receives this fund we shall
formalize the deposit documents in your name and reach an agreement with
them to air lift the consignment for your pick up in your address. Bearing
in mind that your assistance is needed to transfer this fund, wepropose a
commission of 15% (Fifteen Percent) of the total sum to you for the
expected services and assistance. While extra 5% is mapped out for
miscellaneous expenses.

enable us discuss about this. Your urgent response is highly needed. I
must use this opportunity to implore you to exercise utmost indulgence to
keep this matter extraordinarily confidential, while I await your prompt
response.  I have to remind you that this information should be on a top
confidential level. Please make out time to reply me privately.
