I am highly compelled upon strict recommendation, to write you this very urgent and confidential letter.
I am BARRISTER HARBART PHILIP, the Lawyer to MRS. MARIAM ABACHA the wife of the late Nigerian Head of State General Sani Abacha who died of heart - attack on Monday, the 8th of June,1998.Upon the sudden and tragic death of her husband, General Abacha, there has been an intensive but secret exercise by the present civilian government to close/freeze all his bank accounts both home and abroad as he was confirmed to have directed a certain percentage of oil proceeds totalling over US$ 500M (FIVE HUNDRED MILLION U.S.DOLLARS) into private bank accounts scattered in several countries of the world; accumulated during his 41/2 years of military rule. An issue that was already on press before his sudden death. Since this exercise started few month ago, my client who is still in confinement has been in a very seriousagony and mental stress as the entire family have virtually lost every including landed properties and major investments both home and aborad.
Luckily, there happens to be a special security account which my client deposited a sum of US$ 51,375,000. 00 (FIFTY ONE MILLION, THREE HUNDRED AND SEVENTY FIVE THOUSAND U. S DOLLARS). This fund in mycompanys name and is lodged in a Company Security Account Deposits (CSAD) with a West AfricanSub-Regional Bank.
The fear there is that my client is one of the directors and invariably a major shareholder in the company, there exists a possible trace of this fund when once they finish with the accounts/assets principally owned by her husband, the Late Head of State himself.It is therefore on this note that my client have taskfully delegated me to quickly source a trustworthy and reliable person/company in your country who will kindly help us to accommodate and safeguard this fund into his account to save us from he calamities of the present clamp on her husband (the ex president) bank accounts/assets all over the world.
Note that we have concluded arrangements for the release of the aforementioned sum to your bank account within the shortest possible time as soon as we concluded talks. As a result of this and other higher levels of financial transaction which I would want to enter with you as made possible by the death of my client's husband, I am suggesting that we schedule ameeting immediately.
Please endeavour to contact me immediately through my private and confidential email address above. whether or not this offer is acceptable to you, so as to enable me make other alternative contacts, on thecontrary.
I await your urgent reply while believing you do understand the confidential nature of this transaction.
BARRISTER HARBART PHILIP.
