Dear Beloved..

Due to the sudden death of my husband General Abacha the former head of state of Nigeria in June 
1998, I have been thrown into a state of hopelessness by the present administration. I have lost 
confidence with anybody within my country. I got your contacts through personal research, and had 
to reach you through this medium. I will give you more details when you reply. Due to security  
network placed on my daily affairs I cant visit the embassy so that is why I have contacted you.

My husband deposited $12.6million dollars with a security firm abroad whose name is witheld for now 
till we communicate. I will be happy if you can receive this funds and keep it safe I assure you 
20% of this fund. I will need your telephone/mobile numbers so that we can commence communication.

Sincerely Yours,
Hajia Mariam.
