STRICTLY CONFIDENTIAL/URGENT

FROM: MRS. MARIAM ABACHA
C/o BARRISTER



ATTN: THE DIRECTOR

I am Mrs. Mariam Abacha, the widow of the late Gen.
Sanni Abacha former Nigerian Military Head of State
who died mysteriously as a result of Cardiac Arrest.
Since after my husband's death, my family is under
restriction of movement and that notwithstanding, we
are being molesting; policing and our Bank Account
both here and abroad are being frozen by the Nigerian
Civilian Government. Furthermore, my elder son is in
detention by the Nigerian Government for more
interrogation about my husband's assets and some vital

document.

Following the recent discovery of my husband's Bank
Account by the Nigerians Government with Swiss Bank
in which the huge sum of US$700 Million and Dutch 450
Million was logged. I therefore decided to contact you

in confidence that I was above to move out the sum of
US$15Million Dollars, which was secret and is
sealed in two Metal Boxes for security reasons.

I personally therefore appeal to you seriously and
religiously for your urgent assistant to move this
money into your country where I believe it will be
safe since I cannot leave the country due to the
restriction movement imposed on the members of my
family by the Nigerian Government.

You can contact me through my family Lawyer who will
arrange with you for face to face meeting outside
Nigerian in order to liaise with you toward effective
completion of this transaction.

However, arrangements have been put in place to move
this money out of the country in the secret vault
through a security company to any of the West African
State and as soon as you indicate your interest, my
Lawyer shall send you the Air Bill of the Luggage and
other related documents so that you can help to claim
the Luggage.

Conclusively, we have agreed to offer you 30% of the
total sum, while 60% is to be held on trust by you
until we decide on a suitable business investment in
your country more also 10% is mapped out for internal
and external expenses. Subsequent to our free movement

by the Nigerian Government. Please, reply urgently and

treat with absolute confidentiality and sincerity.

Best regards,

MRS. MARIAM ABACHA




..... or similar [:D]

I tend to get a few a week but beleive it or not a woman in America actually replied to one and eventually parted with $2,500,000 dollars of her firm's money in the hope of getting rich in return. Needless to say the transaction never actually went through and she is on bail awaiting a court appearance [8D]

Hmm I must give off some strange repelling vibes then cus I've never had one of these before, not even one that comes close.
I receive a lot of stuff from serif on software and that's about all. Am I lucky or should I not speak too soon? [:D][:D]

I usually get 2 or 3 a week, from the ex-president/prime minister or his wife etc.

The best one was when i replied to one once, they replied within minutes asking for my bank details etc, i told them i was going to use my scillian account & my family would be in contact pretty soon concerning the signing over etc of the money & even arranging safe passage out of the country using one of our planes.

Funny how the next reply informed me they had done the deal with another person but thanking me for offering the help [:D]

Hi Ian

They get your addresses the same way as a junk mail company does.

they apply for a list of mail addresses from a company that you have "ticked" a box with it could be any company from fishing stuff to freebies, check out some of the small print & it will say "if you do/ do not want to recieve mails from other companies please tick/ untick this box"

The box will be so small you'll miss it if you blink.
