60 Cannon Street
London EC4N 6JP,
I am Mrs Janet Elizabeth Smith A National of Bermuda
an accountant with a bank here in London.There is a
of £150,000,000.00 (One Hundred and Fifty Million
Pounds Starling) made
to this bank since 1994 which ten years now and since
then no clam or withdrawal have been made on that
Fortunately, I have been the person working the
interest from the day of
deposit to date. The interesting part of it is that
the fixed deposit
to the late Nigerian dictator General Sani Abacha,
this means that the
may have been abandoned by the surviving family
members or that they are
not even aware of the existence of the deposit.
However, I just finished updating the interest of the
deposit this January,
and it has come up to £105,000,000.00 at the 7%
interest rate per annum.
It is this interest that I am interested in because I
know very well that the family will care less on what
happens to the
interest,if they want to redeem the deposit, they will
be interested on the main money,that is if they are
able to claim it at all because all the money lodged
into different banks here in Europe and United States
are now been claimed by the Nigerian government.
Meanwhile, my plan is to withdraw just some amount
from the accumulated
interest, which will not even affect the main fixed
deposit. I will give you the details of procedure when
I receive your reply and your readiness to co-operate
with my attorney who will be the principal actor of
the entire transaction but i will guide both of you
The involvement of my attorney is because of my
matrimonial affairs and i dont want my husband to be
aware of this transaction because it might jeopardise
our matrimonial relationship. Your reward depends on
the amount to withdrawn for transfer and will be on
our mutual agreement to avoid any
We have nothing to lose, we only need courage to do
this and i assure you there is no risk involved
because i have taking every pre-cautionary measures as
it affects the entire process.
Mrs Janet Smith.
