Scam Exposure

I have a few things to blog about today, but I want to start off by posting the text of two more "Nigerian scam" type emails I've received this week. I could just delete them, but it's much more fun to publish them on the web so everyone can see what these idiots are trying to pull. Here they are:


I am an Accountant and the chairman of the tender
committee which awards contract in the department of
the petroleum Resources of Nigeria . I sent you a
letter by post office sometime ago informing you of
our plan to transfer the sum of US$20.5million (Twenty
�million, Five hundred thousand US Dollars only) to
your account. I have been waiting to hear from you,but
up till now, nothing has been heard from you hence
this particular message.
In any case, I guess that you may not have received
the letter after all due to the shortcomings of our
postal system. I want you to know that this fund
originated from an Over-invoiced contract sum which
was awarded to a foreign firm in 1999. I and my three
(3)other colleagues in the tender Board purposely
inflated the actual cost of the contract to the tune
of US$20.5 Million.
However, the original contractor has fully executed
the contract, the project commissioned and the
contractor paid his actual contract worth, leaving
behind the over-invoiced sum. So, it is based on this
that we now want you / your company to come forward to
claim this sum on our behalf. We are Civil Servants,
and we are not allowed to operate foreign account
while still in office, so you are therefore to act as
one who had executed a contract worth the sum of
US$20.5million for my Department and you now want your
payment. This deal is 100% risk.We are perfectly in charged and had worked out
modalities that would guarantee a perfect
�transfer of this fund to your account. We have also
mapped out 30% of the total sum for you for your help
and assistance while the remaining is for me and my
If you are interested in the proposal, and you are a
trustworthy person who would not sit on this money� if
it is transferred to your account, kindly indicate by
contacting me through my private telephone or via my
This deal must be kept absolutely confidential till we
succeed. Thank you as we look forward to your
anticipated co-operation.
NOTE=After a successful transfer, 30% for you, 60% for
us, 10% mapped out to settle expenses incurred by both
parties in the process of transfer.We will also visit
you immedaitely we conclude this transaction to
collect and invest our shares of the total sum into
any viable business you may advise us in your country.
Contact me urgently through my Telephone
or my E-mail address.234-8023353203,Best regards,
Abu Galadima

And now, the second one:
Naturally, this letter will come to you as a surprise since we have not
met permit me to introduce myself. I am kolawole Abiola, the first son
of the late M.K.O. Abiola, the acclaimed winner of the annulled
presidential election of June 12th 1993 of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
Before my Fathers death, he willed all his assets and wealth in my name
(as the first son) because my family is a polygamous one, my father has
many wives.
My father transferred a lot of money in United States dollars
domination abroad. And also his assets worth billions of dollars abroad. Presently, (US$81million) eighty-one million united states dollars
only, is� in a security company in europe and asia countries
that�s why I am soliciting for your urgent assistance to safely transfer
this money in to your account on your behalf and myself.
For your assistance, 30% of the total sum will be given to you, 10% to
offset local or foreign expenses that may be incurred in the course� of
this remittance.
I shall be meeting with you, if you accept to assist me.remember all
modalities have been worked out to ensure a clean remittance of this fund
into your account hitch free. Your expertise has been taken into
