I currently have the sum of Twenty four Million US Dollars (US$24,000,000.00) cash in a vault of a certain security company which l intend to use for investment, like Real Estate Development specifically in your country. This money came as a payback for the Failed Debt buy back contract deal between my late husband and some foreigners. I must inform you that the foreigners tried what they felt was good for the deal they had with my Late Husband and at the end of the present government says it was scam on our countries multi-billion debt to IMF, world bank and Paris Clubs.

In view of these, l acted fast to withdraw the US$24,000,000.00 from the company's vault and deposited it in Eurolite Services BV, Amsterdam The Netherland.
No record ever existed concerning the money traceable by the government because there is no documentation showing that we received the money from the foreign partners who did the business with abacha and the fund was paid cash, so it has no traces from the bank.
