Widows of Deposed Leader General Sani Abacha Examples of Nigerian 419 Advance Fee Fraud ( Mariam, Maryam, Hajia, Aishat )


Avoiding Square One

FROM: HAJIA MARIAM ABACHA

A CRY FOR HELP.

Dear friend,

Following the sudden death of my husband, Late General Sanni Abacha, the former head of state of the federal republic of Nigeria in June 1998, I have been thrown into a state of utter confusion, frustration and hopelessness by the present civilian administration.

Security agents in Nigeria have subjected me to physical and psychological tortures. One of my sons is still under detention as well as arraigned before a Federal High Court of Nigeria for an offence he did not commit.

As a widow, that is so traumatized, I have lost hope and confidence in anybody within the country. You must have heard over the media and the Internet on the recovery of various huge sums of money deposited by my late husband in different security firms abroad.

Some willingly gave up their secrets and disclosed our money confidently lodged with them and many out-rightly declined lodgment. In fact the total sum discovered by the Government so far is to the tune of $700 million dollars.

And the government has not relented in its efforts to completely bring my children and I back to square one. This is why I deemed it necessary to act fast by contacting anybody abroad for assistance.

Furthermore, due to the security network placed on my daily activities I cannot afford to visit any embassy for a possible solution, hence I have decided to contact you and I do hope you will be the person God is going to use to rescue my family and I.

I have deposited the sum of $35 million dollars in a security firm abroad as whose name is withheld for now for security reasons until we fully commence communication. I shall be grateful if you could receive this fund on my behalf for safekeeping.

Adequate arrangement has been made for receiving the fund. It is totally risk free. This arrangement is known to you, my brother (who is contacting you and I only. This means that my brother will deal directly with you as surveillance is on me. My brother' name is ABDUL.

You are entitled to 30% of the total sum. I hope to invest a proportion of the balance in your country. Please forward your private Telephone and Fax numbers so that we can fully commence communication immediately.

I will quite appreciate, if you accept my proposal in good faith. I look forward to receiving your urgent reply to my plea. Reply through my e-mail.

Yours truly,

Hajia Mariam Abacha


Abacha Nigeria Scam

Subject: Need your cooperation.

Sir,

I would like to firstly send to you the best wishes of good health. With utmost confidence I am soliciting your immediate assistance or co-operation as to enable my family round up the remains of our life.

Following the sudden death of my husband General Sani Abacha, who was the former head of state of Nigeria in June 1998. I have been thrown into a state of utter confusion, frustration and hopelessness by this present civilian administration.

I have been subjected to physical and mental torture by the security agents or rather his followers in my country.

And believe me, I and my children have not done anything wrong, we were never part of my late husband regime. The new president has succeeded in turning the whole country against us.

This is just because, this present day President of Nigeria planned a coup d'etat against my husband in 1995 and was charged by the military headed by my late husband for treasonable offence. He was sentenced and jailed by my late husband's government before my late husband died.

It is rumored that my husband was secretly murdered by these same people ,"May his soul rest in perfect peace".

This same man was released and elected as the president of this country in 1999 and since then he has openly vowed that, he will frustrate my family and wipe out our entire family race and he is really doing that to us now.

My son was framed up and is still under detention, arraigned before the federal high court of Nigeria for an offence he did not commit. As a widow that is so traumatized, I have lost confidence with anybody within the country.

You must have heard over the media reports and the internet on the recovery and the freezing of various bank accounts both foreign and local, belonging to my late husband.

Some companies willingly give up their secrets and disclosed our money which he confidentially lodged there or many outright blackmail.

This present government have turned the people against my entire family and they are really out to suffer us and make my family poor for life. I can not really explain the measure of the kind of suffering my family is going through right now.

Come to think of it, I am a woman and I was not in any way part of my husband's military regime. My late husband may have stepped on toes during his tenure, he was a difficult soldier and I never had any control over him or his government. So I do not see why I and his poor children should be going through all these.

I have been looking for help and due to my previous experience I am afraid that if I contact any other embassy I might be exposed.

Please do not betray me.

Some time ago, I deposited the sum of [$40.3 million U.S. dollars] for my late husband in a security firm, whose name I cannot disclose now until I gain your trust and I communication with you .The money was deposited there in a form which I would explain later. I will be very grateful if you could receive this funds for safe keeping.

I never really intended to touch this money which is very safe and secure in the vault of this security firm. But due our present situation I do not have any other option. I need money to safe my son's life. All our accounts here have been frozen and all our properties apart from this only house which we live in.

We are badly in need of money. My son Mohammed is very sick in prison and his lawyers are ripping us off. We have almost resulted to state of begging. The problem is that I cannot lay my hands on this money due to the fact that all our international passports belonging to any member of my family has been seized by this government, pending when they finish dealing with us.

This arrangement is only known to you, myself and my son. Please if you are willing to help me collect this money, do endeavor to forward your private telephone or fax numbers so that we can commence action immediately, because my government does not know anything about this money, nobody knows anything, there is nothing to fear.

All I am bothered about is how this money could be kept safely or invested and most importantly use some of it to save my son's life.

If you are not willing to help me, please do not expose me, just assume we never discussed this matter. I will be most grateful and would show my appreciation if you can help to restore the life and hope in my family again.

Please treat as urgent and important.

Yours Sincerely.

Hajia Maryam Abacha.

Lynn Ronald sends along this sad tale from: Mariam Abacha <mrsabach\\yahoo.com

Attn: Lynn Ronald

Dear Sir,

It is with a heart full of hope that I write to seek your help in the context below. I am Mrs. Mariam Abacha. The wife of the former Nigerian Head of State, late General Sani Abacha, whose sudden death occurred on 8th of June, 1998.

Having gotten your particulars from the family's library, I have no doubt about your capacity and goodwill to assist me in receiving into your custody (for safety) the sum of US$30M willed and deposited in my favor by my late husband.

The money is currently kept with a West African Sub-Regional Finance & Security Company. As it is legally required, the administration of my late husband is under the authority of the family's lawyer named (SANNI AHMEED).

However, the new Democratic Government has, on assumption of office set up a panel of inquiry to probe the financial activities of my late husband (former Head of State) with a decision to freeze all his assets respectively. The investigative team has submitted their report.

Presently, some cash and assets have been frozen and seized. Fortunately, our family Lawyer had secretly protected the Personal will of my husband from the notice of the investigators and have strictly advised that the willed money be urgently moved into an overseas account of trusted foreign family without delay, for security reasons.

The Government had earlier placed foreign travel embargo on all our family members, and seized all known Local and International outfits of our business empire. My son is in prison custody being tried for a crime he is innocent of.

The situation has been so terrible that we are virtually living on the assistance of well wishers. In view of this plight, therefore, I expect you to be trustworthy and kind enough to respond to this call (S.O.S) to save my children and me from a hopeless future.

I hereby agree to compensate you with 15% of the total sum for your sincere and candid effort in this regard, when the fund is finally received into your local bank account. The Attorney has perfected arrangements with the manners to effect complete dislodgment of this money within a week of the receipt of your response through his email address;

They have equally guaranteed 100% risk free and smooth transfer. Please all contacts must be made through my Lawyer (SANNI AHMEED) of SANNI AHMEED Chambers via the e-mail:sanniahmeedschambers\\lycos.com Or fax: 234-1-7590153

I look forward to your quick response, may God bless you.

NOTE: The main assistant is after the money has been transferred into your account, you are going to assist us of investing the money into your country and supervise the total investment over there. For security reasons all other information will reach through my lawyer on email.

Best wishes.
MRS. MARIAM ABACHA

Dear sir,

I AM DR. (MRS) MARIAM ABACHA THE WIFE OF THE IMMEDIATE PAST MILITARY PRESIDENT OF THE FEDERAL REPUBLIC OF NIGERIA WHO DIED ON THE 8TH OF JUNE 1998. I GOT YOUR ADDRESS WHILE GOING THROUGH MY HUSBANDS CLOSET. I THEREFORE, DECIDE TO CONTACT YOU BECAUSE I BELIEVE YOU MUST HAVE BEEN MY LATE HUSBANDS FRIEND.

MY MAJOR REASON FOR WRITING THIS LETTER TO YOU IS THAT MY HUSBAND LEFT A LOT OF PROPERTIES AND HUGE AMOUNT OF CASH MONEY BEFORE HIS SUDDEN DEATH.

THE PRESENT GOVERNMENT OF THE COUNTRY THAT SUCCEEDED MY HUSBAND IS UNFAVORABLE TO OUR FAMILY AND INDEED HAS SHOWN THIS BY THE CONFISCATION OF MANY OF OUR LANDED PROPERTIES AND LARGE AMOUNT OF MONEY BELONGINGS.

FORTUNATELY WE HAVE DISCOVERED MY LATE HUSBAND WILL. THIS WILL STATES THAT THE SUM OF US$150MILLION HAS BEEN DEPOSITED WITH A SECURITY VAULT IN NIGERIA FOR THE ENTIRE FAMILY.

WE HAVE CONTACTED THE SECURITY VAULT AND IT HAS BEEN CONFIRMED THAT THE US$15 MILLION IS STILL INTACT AND THAT WE ARE ABSOLUTELY FREE TO COLLECT THE BOX CONTAINING THE MONEY ANY TIME WE WANT.

DUE TO THE DEATH OF MY HUSBAND AND THE ARREST OF MY ELDEST SURVIVING SON (MOHAMMED ABACHA) THE HANDICAP AT THIS MOMENT IS THAT THE PRESENT GOVERNMENT OF OUR COUNTRY WILL CONFISCATE THIS MONEY IF WE MAKE USE OF IT IN THIS COUNTRY.

WE NEED THE ASSISTANCE OF A FOREIGNER WHO WILL HELP TO INVEST THIS MONEY OUTSIDE OUR COUNTRY. THIS IS WHY I DECIDED TO CONTACT YOU TO ASSIST US.

NOTE I WILL PAY YOU 20% OF THE ENTIRE AMOUNT AND THE REST TO BE RELEASED TO ME. IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN GIVING THIS ASSISTANCE, PLS INDICATE YOUR INTEREST THROUGH MY CONFIDENTIAL EMAIL ADDRESS ABOVE.

I WILL THEN GIVE YOU THE ENTIRE MODALITIES FOR THE BUSINESS ON RECEIPT OF YOUR FAX MESSAGE.

IMMEDIATE ACTION NEEDS TO BE EXPEDITED BECAUSE WE ONLY HAVE SOME WORKING DAYS FOR NEGOTIATION. PLEASE KEEP THIS BUSINESS CONFIDENTIAL.

ATTENTION:

I got your contact from a close Associate of mine who works with the Nigerian Chamber of Commerce and Industry upon my quest for a trusted and reliable foreign business man or company. He however gave me the assurance that you can be trusted to handle a transaction of this magnitude.

Following the sudden death of my husband General Sani Abacha the late former head of state of Nigeria in August 1998, I have been thrown into a state of utter confusion, frustration and hopelessness by the present civilian administration, I have been subjected to physical and psychological torture by the security agents in the country.

My son is still under detention arraigned before the federal high court of Nigeria for an offence he did not commit. As a widow that is so traumatized, I have lost confidence with anybody within the country. You must have heard over the media reports and the internet on the recovery of various huge sums of money deposited by my husband in different security firms abroad, some companies willingly give up their secrets and disclosed our money confidently lodged there or many outright blackmail.

In fact the total sum discovered by the Government so far is in the tune of $700. Million dollars. And they are not relenting to make me poor for life.

I will give you more information as to this regard as soon as you reply. I repose great confidence in you hence my approach to you due to security network placed on my day to day affairs I cannot afford to visit the embassy so that is why I decided to contact you and I hope you will not betray my confidence in you. I have deposited the sum of 41 million dollars with a security firm abroad whose name is withheld for now until we open communication.

I shall be grateful if you could receive this fund into your account for safe keeping. This arrangement is known to you and my family lawyer who shall deal directly with you as I am still under house arrest.

I am seriously considering to settle down abroad as soon as this fund get into your account so that I can start all over again if only you wish, but if it is possible, just help me in diverting this fund into your account which will accrue you 20% of this fund.

Please honesty is the watch word in this transaction.
