Just in: Latest Nigerian Scam Letter - Posted by Hank FL

Now this one looks differnt from the others, but I gotta believe it’s from Nigeria. Not real estate related, but what the heck.

For your enjoyment:


Dear Sir,

We are a team of Government officials that belong to an eight-man
committee in the Presidential Cabinet as well as the Senate. At the
moment, we will be requiring your assistance in a matter that
involves
investment of monies, which we intend to transfer to your account,
upon
clarification and a workable agreement reached in consummating the
project with you. Based on a recommendation from an associate
concerning
your integrity, loyalty and understanding, we deemed it necessary to
contact you accordingly.

All arrangements in relation to this investment initiative, as well
as
the Initial Capital for its take off has been tactically set aside
to
commence whatever business you deemed fit, that will turn around
profit
favourably. We request you immediately contact us if you will be
favorably disposed to act as a partner in this venture, and possibly
will afford us the opportunity to discuss whatever proposal you may
come
up with. Also bear in mind that the initial capital that we shall
send
across will not exceed $13,731,000,00USD (Thirteen Million Seven
Hundred
and Thirty One Thousand United States Dollars) so whatever areas of
investment your proposal shall cover, please it should be within the
set
aside capital.

In this regard, the proposal you may wish to discuss with us should
be
comprehensive enough for our better understanding; with special
emphasis
on the following:

1.The tax obligation in your country
2.The initial capital base required in your proposed investment
area,
as well as;
3.The legal technicalities in setting up a business in your country
with foreigners as share-holders
4.The most convenient and secured mode of receiving the funds
without
our direct involvement.
5. Your ability to provide a beneficiary/ partnership account with a
minimal deposit, where we shall transfer the funds into subsequently.

Another area that we wish to explicitly throw more light on, is the
process we have conceived in transferring the funds into the account
you
shall be providing. Since we are the owners of the funds, and the
money
will be leaving the apex bank of my country, we shall purposefully
fulfill the legal obligations precedent to transferring such huge
amount
of funds, without arousing suspicion from any quarter as a drug or
terrorist related funds; and this will assist us in the long run to
forestall any form of investigations. Remember that, on no account
must
we be seen or perceived to be directly connected with the transfer of
funds. You will be the one to be doing all these, and in the course
of
transfer, if for any reason whatsoever, you incurred some bills, we
shall adequately retire same, upon the successful confirmation of the
funds in your account.

The commencement of this project is based on your ability to convince
us
of the need to invest in whatever business you have chosen, and to
trust
your personality and status, especially as it concerns the security
of
the funds in your custody.

I await your response.

Sincerely,

Mr. James Morgan

(Chairman Senate Committee on Banks and Currency)

How ironic that the falsified “yellow cake” uranium documents came from Nigeria as well.

Never trust a document from Nigeria.

click on “Hall of General Fraud”

Also, if you see a link for the “Adkinson Anylisis” , go there too.

Good reading if you are into that kind of stuff.

Nigeria is supposed to be West Africa’s most stable country. But half the country is Muslim and under Shari’a law, and the other half is Christian, and riots are common. Nigeria seems to be home to the greatest number of scammers in the world. I heard that engineers traveling to Nigeria to repair a radio transmitter were met at the airport not by the radio station’s reps but by scammers who stripped them of everything including the clothes on their backs and left them in the bush to die. Voice of Nigeria, the country’s official shortwave radio station, had to install a fax for reception reports because their mail was always being stolen and responded to by scam letters. Nigerians, like the Cargo Cultists of the South Pacific, must think that the great wealth of the West appears by magic and that all Westerners are rich.

By the way, my phone book lists telephone country code 234 as belonging to-you guessed it-Nigeria.
