Subject: MY CLIENT
GOLDEN BUSINESS OPPORTUNITY
I am an Attorney and close confidant of MRS. MARYAM ABACHA, the former first lady and wife of the late GEN. SANI ABACHA, the former head of state and commander in chief of the armed forces of the Federal Republic of Nigeria. She (MRS. M. ABACHA), has as a result of the trust and confidence she has in me mandated that I search for a reliable and trustworthy foreign partner, who will help receive some funds which she had in cash totaling US$45m (Forty Five Million United States Dollars Only) into a personal, company or any reliable foreign bank account for safe keeping for a short period of time, since her family bank accounts within and outside the country have all been frozen by the authorities. (I would refer you to the website of http://www.transnationale.org/anglais/sources/tiersmonde/dirigeants__aba http://allafrica.com/stories/200203180074.html http://www.time.com/time/europe/magazine/2000/27/swiss.html, for further information about these monies and the ABACHAS)
This money in question has however, been carefully keptin defaced form and deposited with a security company that has branches in Europe and America. You may therefore be required to travel to any of the branches to collect the money on behalf of my client for safe keeping. It may also interest you to know that she (MRS. ABACHA) and her family have, since the inception of the present democratic government, been placed under partial house arrest, with their international traveler's passports withdrawn pending the resolution of current fund recovery face-off between them and the present RTD GEN. OBASANJO-led Federal Government, which from all indications will not exceed this year.
She has decided to offer anybody who will be willing to render this tremendous assistance 20% of the total sum, while 5% shall be set aside for incidental expenses. Note that this transaction involves no risks whatsoever, as you will have no dealing with my Country, Nigeria. Rather, you will deal directly with the security company, which is based where the money is right now. Let me have your confidential Tel/Fax Numbers in your response to this proposal. I shall let you into a complete picture of this mutually beneficial transaction when I have received your anticipated positive reply. This matter should be treated as urgent and confidential. This is very important.
