ASA List owner,
I hope that my email address was stolen and not intentionally sold to this
SPAMmer by yourself or an ASA rep. If ASA didn't sell my email address to
this Internet Scam, then you might want to check your security config. on
your mail server. Obviously a SPAMmer is using ASA - the question is
whether it was intended by ASA or not...

Mr. Jerry Adams
Federal Airport Authority
of Nigeria (FAAN)
Ikeja - Nigeria
I hope this message will reach you in the best of health and
eceive your prompt attention, even as we have not had any previous
correspondence before. Kindly reach me immediately for details should
you agree to its contents.
I am a principal accountant and the Chairman of the Federal
Tenders Board Committee to the Federal Airport Authority of Nigeria
(FAAN). This message isto solicit for your kindness in assisting me to
amount of fund from my country to your country.
The total amount of fund is US$29.5Million (twenty nine million,
five hundred thousand United States Dollars)which resulted from
awarded by my ministry to some foreign firms in which the
contract bills were slightly inflated by us members of the Tenders
Board Committee with the sole
aim of having the excess fund for our subsequent use.
Presently, all the foreign firms that executed the projects
concerned have been paid their bills accordingly and the projects
have been commissioned for use. At this juncture, we now want to
claim and transfer the excess fund using a foreign company since
foreign contractors originally executed the contracts. Also, we as
civil servants are not allowed to operate domiciliary nor foreign
account, therefore, we cannot claim this fund locally, hence the
necessity for this contact with you.
We have decided to embark on this transaction now that we have
new civilian administration. Our aim is to present your name as a
true beneficiary of the fund.
The total fund (US$29.5M) will then be remitted into any
designated bank account as shall be recommended by you. The relevant
authorities will be made to believe that your company executed some
contracts for my ministry to
which payment is due to be effected.
In this regard therefore, you will be required to present a
suitable bank account that will accommodate the total amount of fund.
The moment the bank account details are received from you, it will
only take a maximum duration of 7-9working days to have all documentations
the fund remitted to your account.
On completion of this transaction, we have resolved to give you
25% of the fund for your efforts and assistance rendered; 5% will be
used to settle any expenses that might be incurred on the process of
this transaction both from our end and your end while the remaining
70% will be for us.
I will be disposed to giving the details of this proposal as soon as I
receive your confirmation signifying your interest in this proposal and your
willingness to assist in its
Kindly reach me through the above email address or above stated
Telephone or fax number for more details on how we shall commence the
Permit me to stress the confidential nature of this transaction
and does not matter any particular field of trade to prosecute this
transaction. Above all, let trust and honesty be our watchword
throughout this business.
Awaiting your kind response.
Mr. Jerry Adams
