    Dear Sir/Madam,

    I am Mrs.Doyin Abiola, a God fearing person in sorrow, one of the widow of

    late M.K.O Abiola, Nigeria's foremost politician, businessman and

    philantropist.
    I sincerely need your assistance, but I want you to bear in mind that this has

    to be strictly confidential. I sincerely need your assistance to take custodian

    of the sum of Four million, three Hundred Thousand United States

    Dollars(U.S$4.3m) This money was given to me by my late husband [Chief

    M.K.O.Abiola]for safekeeping after the Presidential Election campaign.

    After his death in 1998, there was confusion in the entire Abiola family as

    regards sharing of the family assets and moreso, there is envy and jealousy

    as it was obvious that I was my husband's favourite wife, while he was alive.

    As soon as he passed away, coupled with the fact that, what I have and

    what is due to me might be taking away from me by greedy family relations

    whose reasons would be bothering on family tradition and ethics. I decided

    to deposit the money with a security company overseas. I want you to pose

    as the beneficiary of the these funds and all necessary documents will be

    put in place to ensure a smooth transfer of the funds to your nominated

    account.

    I am prepared to compensate you with 20% of the total sum after the

    successful completion of the transaction.

    My Attorney(David Oforka)will be in charge of this transaction He will be

    giving you more information as regards these transaction. He is my

    confidence Attorney and we share secrets. Please respond as soon as you

    get this mail and please it is important that you send your phone and fax

    number if you are willing to assist me. God will always be there for you at

    your time of need.

    Thanks and God Bless,

    Mrs.Doyin Abiola

    since i posted this message, i just got about 3 more of these similer scams. it gets kind of boring. i wonder if anybody really falls for this hogwash as it's been around for so long. ya know what we shoud start doing, e-mail these retards back & pretend to go along with them. i know this kind of scam involves them transferring large sums of money to your bank, so they will ask for your bank info, but they really want to rob you blind. so why not just string them along? give them fake bank account numbers. anything just to keep them busy chasing dead ends! lol! if a lot of these people were chasing dead leads they would not have any time to try to scam innocent people who might bite on this scam. it's almost like when a telemarketer trys to get me signed up for some large interest credit card. i give him false info & keep changing it on the phone! i drive them crazy & they know better than to bother me again! it's hilarious! when we just lash out at these people & call them scam artists when we get their e-mail, that's letting them off the hook too easily!
