Attention: The President / Managing Director
Season's greetings to you and your family and more especially complement of the New Year, new millenium and new century.
I am Abdul Jamal Umar the personal assistant (PA) to Mohammed Abacha the eldest son of the late head of state of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, General Sani Abacha.
Presently, my boss and key officers that served under his father are presently standing murder charges in the high court and for the past few months have been incarcerated in the country's maximum prison pending the determination of the suit, but from all indication, it appears he will be convicted for murder. Before his incarceration, I have in custody the total sum of US$40.5m (forty million, five hundred thousand United States Dollars) only in cash of which I planned together with my boss to convey abroad before the ugly incidence. I hope that you must be aware that the present civilian government of Olusegun Obasanjo has been recovering all the money stashed in foreign accounts by the late General Sani Abacha.
On this note, I am requesting for your assistance to convey this money abroad through a secret channel. Meanwhile this money is in defaced form for security reasons. We propose you have 30% for your efforts and assistance.
Finally, I will like this arrangement to be concluded as soon as possible to enable me leave the country before the end of March this year. Further, information will be provided to you on request. Considering the circumstances of my boss now that he is standing trial, I want this transaction to be of absolute confidentiality. Please reply to my personal email address and telfax number.
Thanks for your anticipated co-operation.
Abdul Jamal Umar
TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN.
PLEASE MAKE SURE THIS MESSAGE IS DELIVERED TO THE ATTENTIONED PERSONS.

RE. NEED FOR URGENT ASSISTANCE.
I AM MR. SIMON KUNBORU, PERSONAL FINANCIAL MANAGER TO LATE PRESIDENT LAURENT DESIREE KABILA OF REPUBLIQUE DEMOCRATIQUE DU CONGO, WHOSE BACKMAN SHORT TO DEATH IN A SHORT MEETING WITH HIS GUEST.
FEW DAYS BEFORE LAURENT KABILA`S DEATH, HE REALISED IN CASH FLOW, THE SUM OF ONE HUNDRED AND SIXTY FIVE MILLION UNITED STATES DOLLARS (US$165,000,000.00) ONLY FROM HIS EXPORT PROCEEDS ON PRECIOUS STONES (GOLD AND DIAMOND) EXPORTED TO HIS BUSINESS PARTNER IN UNITED STATES, NAME WITHELD.
INSTANTLY, LAURENT KABILA COMMITTED HIMSELF OF A DEPOSIT OF ONE HUNDRED MILLION UNITED STATES DOLLARS TO A RUSSIA FIRM FOR THE BALANCE PAYMENT OF THEIR SUPPLIED AMMUNITIONS. THE BALANCE OF SIXTY FIVE MILLION UNITED STATES DOLLARS (US$65,000,000.00) ONLY WAS RESERVED IN HIS PRIVATE SAVE BOXES IN CASE OF IMMERGENCY.
SINCERELY AND TO THE BEST OF MY KNOWLEDGE, THE TOTAL FUND WAS NOT OFFICIALLY RECORDED TO HIS GOVERNMENT AND WAS NOT MADE KNOWN TO ANY BODY IN HIS CARBINET, INCLUDING HIS FAMILY. THE FUND WAS SAFELY KEPT PURPOSELY FOR HIS PERSONAL SECURITY. UNFORTUNATELY, HE RAN INTO DEATH THROUGH HIS BACKS MAN.
MAY HIS SOUL REST IN PERFECT PEACE, IN JESUS NAME, AMEN.
SHORTLY AFTER LAURENT KABILA`S DEATH, I INTENTIONALLY TOOK THE TWO BULLION CRATES THAT CONTAINS THE OUTSTANDING SIXTY FIVE MILLION UNITED STATES DOLLARS TO AN ECOWAS SECURITY BANK IN COTONOU AS AN OFFICIAL DIPLOMATIC TREASURE ON TRANSIT, FOR SAFEKEEPING. WHILE OTHER OF HIS VITAL FINANCIAL DOCUMENTS WERE DEPOSITED IN THE GOVERNMENT LOT AFTER DUE DECLEARATION OF THE DOCUMENTS TO THE FAMILY AND TO THE GOVERNMENT GENERALLY.
AFTER ALL SET AND DOWN, I HEARD SECOND THOUGHT ON THE DEPOSITED FUND AND DECIDED TO BOLT AWAY WITH IT AFTER MY LENGHTY YEARS OF SERVICE IN THE GOVERNMENT WITHOUT BENEFIT, COMPARE TO THE CURRENT STANDARD OF LIVING IN THE COUNTRY. INFACT, THIS IS GOD`S GIFT OPPORTUNITY FOR THE REST OF MY LIFE.
BASED ON THE ABOVE, YOU ARE STRONGLY ADVISED TO ASSIST ME IN RECEIVING THIS BULLION CRATES ON YOUR NAME, IN ANY POSSIBLE FOREIGN COUNTRY AND PROVIDE A RELIABLE FOREIGN ACCOUNT FOR THE SAFE KEEPING OF THE FUND FOR INVESTMENT BETWEEN BOTH PARTIES. THE NATURE OF MY JOB AND THE SENSITIVITY OF MY POST IN THE GOVERNMENT COULD NOT PERMIT ME TO OPERATE ANY FOREIGN ACCOUNT FOR SUCH TRANSACTION HENCE THE NEED FOR A RELIABLE FOREIGNER. I OUGHT TO OFFER YOU TEWNTY PERCENT (20%) OF THE TOTAL FUND FOR YOUR ASSISTANCE.
I WILL ARRANGE FOR THE DESPATCH OF THE BULLION CRATES THROUGH A RECOMMENDED DIPLOMATIC CARGO TO ANY OF OUR AGREED DESTINATION WHERE BOTH OF US WILL MEET FOR RECEIVING THE BOXES FOR FURTHER PROCEDURES UPON THE RECEIPT OF YOUR EXPRESSED INTEREST IN THIS PROPOSAL. I MUST ALSO ADVICE YOU ON THE CONFIDENTIALITY AND SECRECY OF THIS PROPOSAL FOR A GOOD CONCLUSIVE END OF THE ENTIRE ARRANGEMENT. I WILL PROVIDE YOU WITH MY CONTACT NUMBERS IN MY NEXT RESPONSE. YOUR QUICK RESPONSE WILL BE HIGHLY APPRECIATED.

ATTN: THE PRESIDENT/CEO
RE: TRANSFER FOR US$30,000,000.00 INTO YOUR ACCOUNT.
It is with trust and confidence that I write to reveal this urgent business proposal to you. I was assigned by two of my colleagues to seek for a foreign partner who will assist us in providing a convenient account in a designated bank overseas for the transfer of US$30,000,000.00 (Thirty Million United States Dollars Only) pending our arrival in your country for utilization and disbursement of the fund with the owner of the account where the fund would be transferred into.
On the 23rd of January 1996, our corporation, the Nigeria National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) awarded a contract of $120,000,000.00 (One Hundred and Twenty Million United States Dollars) but I and my colleagues being members of the contract award committee inflated the contract sum to the tune of US$150,000,000.00 with the intention of sharing the remaining balance of US$30,000,000.00 among ourselves.
The contract has been successfully executed and the actual contractors have been paid their US$120,000,000.00 (One Hundred and Twenty Million United States Dollars) in full. But what we want to transfer out of the country in our favour for disbursement is US$30M.
My colleagues and I have agreed that if you / your company can act as the beneficiary of this fund US$30M we will transfer the fund to your account and you will retain 30% of the total fund for assistance rendered, while we will retain 60% of the total fund and the balance 10% of the fund will be set aside for the off setting of all expenses that might be incurred by both parties during the fund transfer process.
We request you cooperate with us and provide a convenient account number in a designated bank where this fund can be safely transferred to, we intend to come over there on the completion of the fund transfer to secure our own share of the fund.
Please note that we have been careful and have worked out all the modalities for a smooth transfer of the fund to your designated Bank Account before contacting you. We would therefore not want you to expose this proposal to anybody for the purpose of SECURITY and its CONFIDENTIALITY. We also believe you would not sit on our money when it is transferred eventually into your account as you get your 30% share.
Please, be rest assured that this transaction is 100% risk free, if this proposal is accepted please contact us through the above Telephone and Fax numbers, by indicating your interest and sending us your full banking information (Bank Name, Bank Address, Account Holder’s Name and Number, Telephone and Fax numbers of the bank where you want this money transferred to.
I advise you furnish us with your private telephone, mobile and fax lines for confidential reasons.
Note that the particular nature of your company’s business does not necessarily matter in this transaction.
Your favourable reply is urgently needed.
Yours faithfully, ENGR. MICHAEL CHIKWAS
