Below is information about the Hajia Turai Yar’Adua scam and what to expect. I received this email today which claims to be from the wife of a late Nigerian president who packed away 45 million dollars and is willing to give you 40% if you help her get it.
Of course, it’s all a big scam, so don’t fall for this! The email is below:
I am Hajia Turai Yar’Adua, the Wife of the Late President of Nigeria Umaru Musa Yar’Adua. I want you to please help me and invest the sum of ($45 Million USD) which my Husband deposited in a security firm in Oversea before he died recently. Note, the funds where deposited as security bonds worth ($45 Million USD) before he went to a hospital in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia in November 2009.
I will send to you all the necessary documents that will mandate you to claim the security deposit bonds, as the sole beneficiary of the security deposit bonds. Please if you are willing to assist me, kindly email me back so that we will proceed immediately. After all is been done, you will take 35% out from the total sum while 5% is been set aside for any expense.

It seems that this \woman\ is still trying to do business even from her grave. I just received an email this afternoon. Content is below. I sent a response and corrected all of the spelling, punctuation and grammatical errors. It would seem if these people were actually \trying\ to get $$ from us they would learn how to write a proper letter and not handle it like they are scammers…which they are!!
P.S. ~ It’s good to know we can still do email after we are in our graves.

God Bless You.
Hajia Turai Yaradua
I am afraid for you Musa, your way of thinking is abnormal and you are confused. Such scams as the Hajia Turai Yar’Adua do not target just rich men, they target everyone such as the truly kind person living in poverty trying to move up, this only keeps them down. You should see a doctor again.
But if u ask an average man to help a poor person he will feel too big to act such so why not we allow them to elevate poverty by falling as victims. …
I received this email today…..m in USA…..yeah it seems like they are sending it everywhere…..
I think I actually got this one myself, once, when I lived in England. They must have sent it everywhere.
