Attn: Managing Director

Dear Sir/Madam,

I am Barrister Chidi Obi, the legal adviser to Mr.Mohammed Abacha, the heir apparent to the estate of the late Head of State of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, late General Sani Abacha. I am contacting you due to the present situation as regard the special panel set up by the new democratic administration (spearheaded by Chief Olusegun Obasanjo who was jailed by my client's father during his tenure for an attempted coup plot against his administration). An anti-corruption bill was recently passed in the country (apparently targeted on my client's family) to recover all supposed looted money kept by the Abacha's family both abroad and locally. This exercise has been going on for some time since the demise of my client's father.

The government has succeeded so far to recover the sum of $3.2 Billion US Dollars from Swiss Bank account belonging to my client's father. As at six
months ago, they recovered $565Million US Dollars and on the 11th of November 2000 another $395 Million US Dollars was recovered owing to the co-operation of the Swiss government. These facts you can confirm from the Nigerian Embassy in your country or you can request for newspapers or BBC publications for further proof. I am consulting you on behalf of my client Mr. Mohammed Abacha who demands me to "urgently" look for a foreign partner, who could help us immediately to move a certain amount of money outside Nigeria.

All I want you to do is to receive the said amount in your name and invest it on behalf of my client's family who shall be a partner (under anonymity) in whatever business venture you intend investing. The money in question is about $40 Million United States Dollars, kept in a security vault. All documentation regarding this are in my possession and a power of attorney to transact this business has been fully given to me by my client. In the light of above, I am soliciting your assistance and partnership to move this money out of Nigeria for as both of us can make a lot of profit.

After due consultation with my client, a 30% of the whole money will be given to you as commission/compensation for obliging the materials and channel to help us push this money abroad for investment purpose. This money was kept and lodged in a security vault in a crate marked antique. For the time being, it is safe and undisclosed. Therefore, contact me immediately, only, if you are able and interested in assisting me. Kindly contact me preferably using my email address at, as soon as possible.

Thanks for your co-operation.

Yours sincerely,

Barrister Chidi Obi
