May the peace of All Mighty Allah be with you, This letter may come to you as a surprise since it is coming from someone you have not met before, However, I got your contacts through my personal research, and out of desperation I decided to reach you through this medium, I am MOHAMMED ABACHA, the second Son of General Sanni Abacha, the late Military Head of State of Nigeria.
When my father was alive I used to move funds in cash, running into millions of United States dollars to Brazil, Lebanon and other parts of the world, for safe keeping on behalf of my father. However, on the eve of my father's death in June 8,1998,he gave me the sum of $30,000,000.00 (THIRTY MILLION UNITED STATES DOLLARS) in cash to move to Lebanon as usual, But immediately my father died I had to divert the funds to a private security firm abroad whose name is withheld for now until we open communication.
I shall be grateful if you could receive this $ 30 million into your account for safe keeping. This arrangement is known to you and my mother Hajia Mariam Abacha alone. You will be entitled to 25% of the total sum involved for your assistance. I repose great confidence in you hence my approach to you due to security network placed on my day to day affairs I can not afford to visit the embassy, that is why I decided to contact you and I hope you will not betray my confidence in you.
I will give you more detailed picture of things as soon as I hear from you. In case you don?t accept please do not let me out to the security as I am giving you this information in total trust and confidence, I will require your telephone and fax numbers so that we can commence communication immediately and I will greatly appreciate if you accept my proposal in good faith. Honesty is the watch word in this transaction.
Please expedite action and get back to me so that we can proceed.
Alhaji Mohammed Abacha
