FROM: MRS MARIAM ABACHA ....TEL:234-8023205052
How are you and your family? Hope fine. How is your business? I guess
everything is fine. I am MRS MARIAM ABACHA, the widow of the late
Gen.Sani Abacha who was the former Nigerian Head of State and who died
in office as a result of cardiac arrest. Since the death of my husband
my family has been under restriction of movement and our bank accounts
both Local and Foreign has been frozen by the present civilian
government in Nigeria. Also some money in both Foreign and Local
currencies about $250 million United States Dollars and 150 million
Dutch mark all in cash were recovered from our apartment. When my late
husband (Gen. Sani Abacha) was in power with the help of some
British businessmen he was able to move some suit cases (4) containing
foreign currency totaling US$60 million United States Dollars to a
security company in Europe for safe keeping and the security company in
Europe has spoken

I get a couple of these a week. Usually they don't have a
Christian facade but
are supposedly from some relative of a former government minister or
some such & offer
several million for, in some nebulous way, assistance in getting the
money out of some
account. Most are from Nigeria but some have been from the Congo or
Frankly, I think that anyone who falls for one of these scams
shouldn't, for his
or her own safety, be let out on the street alone. & I can be a sucker
for a sob story
