Compliments of the season. I write to you in good faith based on your contact address I got from my personal search on the internet.
I am Barrister MOHAMMED SULEIMAN, I solicit for Hajia Mariam Abacha, wife of the late Gen. Sani Abacha, who was the former military head of state in Nigeria. He died in 1998. Since his death, the family has been loosing a lot of money due to vindictive government officials who are bent on dealing with the family.
Based on this, the family has asked me to seek for a foreign partner who can work with us as to make claim of the total sum of US40.3M , presently deposited with a diplomatic courier company abroad.
This money was of course, acquired by the late president and is now kept secretly by the family. The Swiss government has already frozen all the accounts of the family in Switzerland, and some other countries will soon follow suit. This bid by some government officials to deal with this family has made it necessary that we seek your assistance in claiming this money and investing it on behalf of the
family. This must be a joint venture transaction and we must all work together.
Since this money is still in cash, extra security measures have been taken to protect it from theft or seizure, pending when agreement is reached and how to move it into any of your nominated Bank Accounts. I have personally worked out all modalities for the peaceful conclusion of this transaction.
As soon as I hear from you, I will give you all necessary details as to how we intend to carry out the whole transaction. Please, do not entertain any fear, as all necessary modalities are in place, and I assure you of all success and safety in this transaction.
Thanks and God bless you.
BARR. MOHAMMED SULEIMAN.
