DOLLARS ONLY) which I want to invest in your country. For
your clarification with understanding,this money in a box
which my husband deposited in the finance and security
company dis-guise as a family treasure since 11th of

generated from my organisation FAMILY SUPPORT PROGRAM

company,also I will disclose to you the country and the
name of the finance and security company where this money
is being deposited.

finance company where this money is being deposited and
claim it as the bona-fide owner.It is very ideal you
forward to me your private telephone and fax numbers to
enable me send all relevant documents pertaining the

Bear in mind that this transaction demands absolute
confidentiality because properties and bank accounts both
local and international bearing the Abacha's family name,
are being ordered to be confiscated by the newly elected
civilian President of Nigeria (President Olusegun
Obasanjo)hence I will not want to be exposed.

Nigeria and abroad.

discuss in detail aboutthis transaction For your knowledge,
25% of this fund $25 000.000 (TWENTY FIVE MILLION U.S

this fund and another 5% has been set aside for all the
expenses you might incur during the process of securing
fund.Example: TELEPHONE BILLS, HOTEL BILLS,FLIGHT BILLS and
other mislenous expenses.
When you must have taken the agreed percentage, you will
use part of the balance to buy a living house for my family
there in your country, where we shall live in the future
and the remaining part will be kept for investment package
also in your country which will be under your supervision.
Contact me through my son (OMAR ABACHA) who recently
escaped from Nigeria to Johannesboug South Africa where he
is now staying as a refuge on his email address

money, since it is the only remaining fund for the survival
of my family.
