ABACHA’S FAMILY ESTATE
ESTATE DEVELOPER & CONSULTANTS
I am Dr. (Mrs) Mariam Abacha, wife of the last Nigerian Head of State, General Sani Abacha who died on the 8th of June 1998 while still
on active duty. Iam contacting you in view of the fact we will be of great assistance to each other, likewise developing acordial business relationship.I currently have within my reach the sum of thirty-five million United States dollars($35,000,000.00) which I intended to use for investment purposes specifically in your country. This money came as a result of a pay-back contract deal between my late husband and a Russian firm in our country’s Multi-Billion Dollar Ajaokuta Steel Plant.
The Russian partner returned my late husband’s share of US$35,000,000.00 USD after his death, Right now, the new civilian government has intensified their probe on my late husband’s financial resources and has frozen our accounts. In view of these facts, I acted fast to withdraw the US$35,000,000.00 USD from the company’s vault and deposited it in a security safe . No record whatsoever exists concerning the money traceable by the government
because, there is no documentation showing that we received the money from the Russians.
Due to the current situation in the country concerning the Government’s attitude towards my family, it has become quite impossible for me to make use of this money, thus upon your consent, I shall expect you to contact my son Prince Abbas Abacha with the above No. urgently to enable us discuss in detail about this transaction. Bearing in mind that your assistance is needed to transfer this fund, I propose a commission of 20% (twenty percent) of the sum to you for the expected service and assistance. Your response is highly needed so as to stop further contact.
All correspondence must be by this email address I must use this opportunity to implore you to exercise the utmost indulgence to keep this matter extra ordinarily confidential as I waits to hear from you.
Dr. (Mrs) Mariam Abacha
