From Mrs. Mariam Abacha

Sir,

I am Dr. Mrs. Mariam Abacha, wife to the late Nigerian Head of state, General Sani Abacha who died on the 8th of June 1998 while still on active service for our Country.

I am contacting you with the hope that you will be of great assistance to me, I currently have within my reach the sum of 30 million U.S dollars cash which I intend to use for investment purposes. This money came as a result of a payback contract deal between my husband and a Russian firm in our country's multi-billion dollar Ajaokuta steel plant. The Russian partners returned my husbands share being the above sum after his death.

Presently, the new civilian Government has intensified their probe into my husbands financial resources which has led to the freezing of all our accounts, local and foreign, the revoking of all our business licenses and the arrest of my first son.

In view of this I acted very fast to withdraw this money from one of our finance houses before it was closed down. I have deposited the money in a security company here in Nigeria (with a coded name) as family treasure in two trunks with the help of very loyal officials of my late husband. No record is known about this fund by the government because there is no documentation showing that we received such funds.

Due to the current situation in the country and government attitude to my family, I am closely monitored and cannot make use of this money, hence I seek your help in receiving these funds and pay into your account for the family safety. Bearing in mind that you may assist me,

l have decided to part with 20%, my personal Barrister olive ngwu, has been mandated to handle this entire matter with you. Therefore feel free to contact him at alhabu@lawyer.com or barr_abu@yahoo.com Tel: 234-1-4709258 for more clarification and further discussion. Note that all correspondence should be directed to my lawyer.
Kind Regards,

Dr. Mrs. Mariam Abacha
