It is with hope that I write to seek your help in the context below.I am Hajia Mariam Abacha, wife of Nigeriaís former head of state; Late General Sani Abacha, whose sudden death occurred on the 8th of June 1998. Since my husband died, I have been thrown into a state of
utter confusion, frustration and hopelessness by the present civilian administration. The security agents in the country have subjected me to physical and sychological torture. My son (Mohammed Abacha) has
just been released from detention arraigned before the federal high court of Nigeria for an offence he did not commit. As a widow that is so traumatized, I am hopeless with my present faith.
You must have heard over the media reports on the recovery of various sums of money deposited by my latehusband with various security firms. Some companies willingly gave up their secret and disclosed
our money confidently lodged there, or many, outrightblackmail. Infact the total sum discovered by the governmentso far is in the tune of $700 Million USD and they are not relenting to make me poor for life. I came in contact with your name and address through my
personal research and would want to have faith and confidence in you as I view you to be a responsible personality. I have no doubt about your capacity and goodwill to assist me in receiving into your custody( for safety) the sum of $40.3 Million USD willed and deposited safely in my favour by my late husband. This money is currently kept in Safe Deposit Box (SDB) at a security firm within Europe.
As it is legally required, the administration of my late husbandís property is under the authority of the familyís
Lawyer(Attorney)Barrister Abdulrahman Bubatrafa(SAN).The
investigative teams set up by my government have submitted their report after freezing almost all our account.
Fortunately, our family lawyer had secretly protected the personal will of my husband from the notice of the investigators and have strictly advised that the $40.3m USD be urgently moved to an overseas account of any trust worthy but ANNONYMOUS foreign family friend without delay, for security reasons.All our traveling papers have
been seized by the government thereby preventing us from traveling and all the local and international outfit of our business empire seized. This sum of money is our only hope to stay alive.I have therefore agreed to compensate your goodself with 30% of the total deposit when you finally recieve the deposit box from the security
firm and its contents safely lodged in your account. They have equally guaranteed 100% risk-free and smooth transfer. If you are interested in assisting me,please reach me immediately or send to me your confidential telephone and fax number(s) so that I can reach you
as soon as possible.
For obvious security reasons, it is imperative that you keep all our communication very secret. Do not mention my family,s name or disclose the transaction to anybody. I know a lort of Nigerians have been using this Name for SCAN, beleive it this is not SCAN BUT REAL.
If you are not interested in assisting me,still get in touch so that I can make alternative arrangement as timeis of the essence.Please do not expose me to my government.
