    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

    Dear Sir,
    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
    transfer some
    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
    various contracts
    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
    complied and
    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
    whole transaction.

    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.

    Yours faithfully,
    Mr. Jerry Adams
