From: "munirat abacha"
I am Mrs. Munirat Abacha, the wife of Mohammed Abacha, son of the Late head of state of Federal Republic of Nigeria - General Sani Abacha.I am contacting you in view of the fact that we will be of great assistance to each other like wise developing a cordial relationship.
My husband along with his late father and top officials of their past administration has been accused of looting several Billion United States Dollars from the Nigeria Government. The current attitude of the present government towards my family has indeed made life quite unbearable for us. Fortunately, Mohammed my Husband has six million and eight hundred thousand United States Dollars(US$6.8 million) cash, which he intended to use for investment purposes overseas. This money is kept with a private security company here.. It is only my husband and myself that know the company where the money is kept.
Due to the current situation in the country concerning government‚s vendettas towards my family, we seek your assistance to transfer this money out of Nigeria for the purpose of investment as intended by my husband. My family is currently being probed by this present government for alleged involvement in misappropriation of public funds during my father-in-law's regime. Towards this effect, an embargo restricting my family members from traveling or carrying out financial transactions without their express permission is in force. Right now, my husband (Mohammed) is under arrest and is being detained in connection to the above and other activities of his late father.
However, I have an arrangement on how to freight this money to you after receiving some assurances from you. The money personally belongs to my husband and he intends that it still be used for investment. No record ever existed concerning this money, neither is the money traceable by the government because there is no documentation concerning the funds in the Federal Treasury. The freighting company to be used has now been introduced to me.
Bearing in mind that your assistance is needed to transfer this fund, we propose a commission of 10%(Ten Percent) of the total sum to you for the expected services and assistance. While 5% is mapped out for miscellaneous expenses.
On your positive consent, I shall expect you to contact me urgently to enable us discuss about this.Your urgent response is highly needed. I must use this opportunity to implore you to exercise utmost indulgence to keep this matter extraordinarily confidential, while I await your prompt response.
MRS. MUNIRAT ABACHA
