Pardon me for contacting you through this medium and 
in this manner without any prior introduction. This is

due to circumstances beyond my control. I had to bribe

the prison attendants to secretly allow me open an 
email address from the computer in their office. My 
name is Alhaji Mohammed Sani Abacha, the eldest 
surviving son of the late Nigerian Head of State, 
General Sani Abacha. I am currently in detention on 
the orders of the current Nigerian government at the 
Kirikiri Maximum Security Prisons, Lagos on what is to

me, on political grounds. 
You would have read some of the news recently of how 
the present government claims that my late father 
looted their treasury before he died. Well, you can 
see some of them at the following websites: 
Since the assumption of power by the present civilian 
government in Nigeria, my entire family has known no 
peace. The present government has set out to humiliate

and persecute my late father's family and associates 
for both real and imagined sins' of my late father. 
They have confiscated all the assets they could lay 
hands on, frozen the family's bank accounts both here 
and abroad and generally emasculate the members of my 
All these victimization and more have left me, my 
siblings and most especially my widowed mother in a 
very difficult situation in the battle for survival. 
In view of this experience and in order to avoid 
further decimation of the family's fortunes, my mother

and I have decided to entrust a reasonable part of the

family's hidden funds under the care of a trustworthy 
foreigner for safekeeping. 
Her major problem is that while I am in detention my 
mother's movements and access are restricted since she

is virtually under house arrest and constantly 
monitored. This explains my having to contact you 
through clandestine sources. 
Let me therefore inform you in the utmost confidence 
that before the freezing of certain key bank accounts 
in Nigeria, we were able through a technical 
arrangement to withdraw monies totaling 
US$45,000,000.00 (Forty Five Million U.S. Dollars 
Only) which was immediately moved out of the country 
through the help of some of my late father's close 
associates who are still serving in the present 
government. It is both my wish and my mother's that 
you assist us in the safekeeping of these monies. My 
mother will be able to discuss with you if the proper 
arrangements are made through our lawyer, Messr 
abdulsan and abdulsan & Co. (Legal Practitioners & 
Notaries Public). Note that all correspondence between

us shall be through the lawyer, contact directly the 
most senior partner.

I have arranged and agreed with my mother that 25% of 
the total sum will be for you for your kind 
assistance, while 5% of the total sum have been 
earmarked for expenses that might be incured both 
local and international in the course of the whole of 
the whole transaction, including calls made either by 
you or both. But please note that this request is 
contingent on your undertaking that you shall make the

funds available to my mother on demand as a primary 
condition prior to the commencement of this 
This email address is my only source of communication.

You can contact the attorney directly as all the 
information is already with him. Please keep me posted

via email as I will be looking forward to your 
favorable response.
