Naturally this letter will come to you as a surprise since we have not met. However, permit me to introduce myself, I am TINA UBAH, until recently a very top aide to Alh. Mohammed Abacha, the embattled heir0 of late General Sanni Abacha the former Nigerian Head of State cum dictator. Mohammed Sanni Abacha is currently standing trial for the murder of Kudirat Abiola, the late wife of M.K.O Abiola. He has been in detention since last year. After the sudden death of his father, Mohammed started massive secret siphoning and shipment of the familys ill gotten wealth abroad. These include hard currency in dollars & Pounds Sterling, Gold billets and other precious stones. Now, just before his (Mohammeds) arrest and subsequent detention, I personally facilitated the transfer of US$40M (Forty Million United States Dollars) to a private security company, Oversea on his behalf. All documents in respect of this transfer are in my custody. Being a top aide to Mohammed,
I have been arrested, detained and released on two occasions. Presently my Passport and Travel Documents remain seized by the S.S.S. I am not allowed to leave my state of abode. This is also why I cannot go to Oversea to claim this money now. So, after watching the case against Mohammed drag on, there is no doubt in my mind. I am convinced that he will be convicted and sentenced. I have therefore decided to use this loot safely stowed away Oversea to settle myself. This is because my association with the government of Sanni Abacha has put me in bad light with the present civilian government. So I remain unemployed, redundant and restricted. This money will therefore help me start a new life.
This is why I seek your assistance if you permit. I need you to help me clear this money from the security company and keep in trust for me in an account you may nominate. With this done, I can now fight to secure the release of my travel documents to enable me come over for us to share the money. If you can help me, I will compensate you adequately, infact I am willing to give you 40% of the total sum.
If this is acceptable to you, please reply me on my direct e:mail address. Also include your phone and fax numbers (private/official for alternative contact).
Please I want you to know and note that this transaction must be kept in utmost confidentiality and secrecy as my future welfare largely depends on it. It is also absolutely risk free on your own part. Hoping to hear from you as soon as possible and looking forward to a very fruitful relationship with you.
I thank you in anticipation.
