URGENT ASSISTANCE

Sir,

Compliment of the season. I am Fatimah Abacha,
daughter to the late President of Nigeria General
Sanni Abacha. I am writing not to embarrass you but to
seek for your assistance.

Since the death of my father, all my family assets and
bank account has been frozen and seized, at the same
time my mother and brothers were still kept under
house arrest. Please sir, if you can assure me with
utmost trust and confidentiality, we can go ahead and
be helpful to each other.

As I was free from the house arrest, my mother has
secretly sent message across for me to meet the
security company where a sum of $25.8 million Unites
State of America Dollar has been kept for transfer to
any foreign account abroad where it will be secured.
This is as a result of the information that reaches us
through a high-ranking government official to avoid
intervention.

Sir, your willingness in assisting me will lead into
arrangement and preparation where to meet you, before
contacting the courier service. The courier contacts
delivery route was noted to be Amsterdam, London and
Dubai. The trunk box will now take effects on your
name for easy delivery and claiming. Mind you that it
was kept and registered as jewelry with the Security
Company. So we would like you to send your full
particulars so that the beneficiary will now be in
your name for smooth and easy delivery.

I was told by my mother to assure you that this
courier service are specialist whom my dad was using
before with other top government officials. Please
sir, your urgency will save us from ruin, as this
money is our last hope. My mother promised to give out
20% of the total sum for your assistance and expenses.
As I would be travelling to meet you for our share,
part of our 80% can also be jointly put into
investment. I hope to see you face to face. Bye and
awaiting your reply.

Insha Allah.

You're sincerely,
Miss Fatimah

TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN : STRICTLY CONFIDENTIAL

I am Robert (Bob) Kambili, Bank manager of Delta
Trust Bank Nigeria Ltd, Enugu branch, Nigeria; and for
reasons which will become obvious to you as read on, I
obtained your address particulars from an Internet
address listing. Please exercise some patience and
read through my message. THIS IS NOT A SPAM MAIL!

I have very urgent and confidential business
proposition for you. On June 6th 1997, an Oil
Consultant/Contractor with the Nigerian National
Petroleum Corporation, Mr. Ahmed Youseff Mustafa , a
national of Iraq, made a numbered time ( fixed)
deposit for 12 calendar months, value USD30,000,000.00
in my branch.

On maturity, we sent a routine notification to his
forwarding address but got no reply. After a month, we
sent a reminder and finally, his contract employers,
the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation ( NNPC)
wrote to inform us that Mr. A Y Mustafa died from an
automobile accident; that he died without making a
WILL, and all attempts to trace his next of kin
through the Iraqi embassy were fruitless. At first I
was surprised that I did not receive much official
cooperation in my inquiries in order to trace his kin
in Iraq, and inform them about Mr. Mustafa's deposit
of USD30m plus accrued interest.

I therefore made further investigation and discovered
that Mr. Mustafa had actively opposed the Government
of President Saddam Hussein of Iraq, and was
consequently driven into exile. Being an Oil Expert,
he subsequently obtained a job with the NNPC, and
settled in Nigeria. Thereafter, he walked into my
Office to make the aforementioned deposit of USD30m.
He did not declare any kin in his application
paperwork, and when I asked him he informed me that he
wished it so. I accepted his application because banks
are conservative and will always honor a customer's
wishes, especially high net worth customers.

No one knows the source of his money because
apparently the time frame of his employment with the
NNPC does indeed preclude such a large amount of
money. It can be assumed that he brought his money
over from Iraq, but that is open to speculation.
However, the point is that his employers are not aware
of this money , and therefore it can be safely
assumed that no one will ever come forward to claim
this money. This money total USD31.5m ( inclusive of
accrued interests) is still sitting in my Bank in the
Dormant Account Portfolio. No one will ever come
forward to claim it, and according to Nigerian law,
after 5 years, the money will automatically revert to
the Federal Government Treasury if the Account owner
is a foreigner, is certified dead , and there is no
valid claim. This indeed, is the situation. My
proposal therefore is that I am looking for a
foreigner who will stand in as the next of kin to Mr.
Mustafa. It is not necessary to be a blood relation to
Mr. Mustafa, nor have the same name. It is not also
necessary to come from the same Country. I have worked
out the modalities to achieve my aim of appointing a
next of kin, and therefore also by this means transfer
this money total USD31.5m abroad for us to share.

The method of achieving the objective of transferring
this money abroad in a completely legal and proper way
is simple. I intend to use a n Attorney ( representing
you as BENEFICIARY) to execute a series of affidavits
in support of your claim. These will be approved. The
money transfer paperwork itself will include a
certificate of origin so that the receiving bank does
not ask questions or refuse the money as money
laundering. Also, the paperwork will include proper
certification that the funds being transferred are
from non criminal sources. In short this will be a
proper and legal money transfer and there is no risk!
I will have to process the initial paperwork to obtain
approval from the Probate Registry ( Ministry of
Justice ) to obtain the Letter of Administration
empowering you as Sole trustee/executor to the Estate
of Mr. Mustafa.

If you therefore agree to be the official Beneficiary,
then please note that you will not be required to sign
any Money Transfer Documents ( my Attorney will do all
that), you will not be required to come to Nigeria.
Only the following is required from you:
(1) Send to me immediately A bank account ( a bank
account with zero credit balance is ok)
(2) Complete name and address of the Bank
(3) Bank Account Number
(4) Name of Account Holder/Beneficiary
(5) Your address, phone and fax

Once you send me the requested information as above,
I will initiate the processing of the transfer and in
about 7 working days the money total USD31.5m will be
in your nominated bank account for us to share in the
ratio of 80% for me and 20% for you.

This transaction is guaranteed to succeed without any
problems. If you agree to assist me by sending me the
above requested information, I will give you my
complete address, including phone/ fax etc and any
further clarifications you may require.

Looking forward to your urgent reply.

Yours truly
Bob Kambili.

URGENT BUSINESS PROPOSAL

I write with high expectations of fostering a lasting business relationship with you.
Now, my name is Dr. Hassan Abubaka. I am a businessman with various interests in
Europe. I am
also a close associate of Mrs(Hajjia) Maryam Haddiya Abacha(Wife of the late
Nigerian Head of
state-Gen: Sani Abacha.) on behalf of whom I make this proposal.

You will recall that in the last couple of months the new Civilian Government of Nigeria
headed by
President Olusegun Obasanjo has made desperate efforts to liquidate the financial
empire built by
the late Gen: Sani Abacha. This has been done in conjunction with some international
collaboration. Needless to say Billions of Dollars stashed away in foreign accounts
by the late
General and his close aides have been or are in the process of being frozen.

However, in the confusion that followed the death of General Abacha,Mrs Maryam
Abacha aided
by some friendly foreign Governments was able to sneak away USD31.5Million in raw
cash out of
Nigeria to Europe.This money was part of the Cash Call due to the Major Oil
Companies in Nigeria
from the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation but was withdrawn from the Central
bank of
Nigeria by General Abacha to fund his political ambitions. Due to tight security/
surveillance on
the Abacha family in Nigeria(the son is currently in detention) I have been directed to
liaise with a
trusted businessman with a view of lodging the said USD31.5Million safely in a Bank
Account in
Europe or America.

This is where your assistance is required. To evade border and Customs control,the
money was
defaced with a coloring agent. The cash was then shipped via Diplomatic Courier
through
Morocco and Spain and as I write it resides safely in a security Company in one of the
Scandinavian countries. Your role basically would be to provide a SAFE ACCOUNT
where the
money shall be transferred to without a hint of suspicion. For your troubles you shall
handsomely
compensated.

I have deliberated left out the details of this transaction until we are convinced of your
interest
and commitment .Also you will agree with me on the need for ABSOLUTE
CONFIDENTIALITY in
a transaction of this nature and magnitude.Indeed you will be sworn to secrecy before
we unfold
the more crucial aspects of this business.

Do reach me on FAX:447092123578 and TEL:447950661541 so we can arrange a
preliminary
meeting
I look forward to hearing from you.

Sincerely

Dr. Hassan Abubaka
