PLOT 102 RUE 12 KOUMASSI 32
ABIDJAN, IVORY COAST.

ATTN: THE PRESIDENT/CEO

Dear Sir,

I am writing this letter out of a genuine desperation to find a reliable partner in the unfolding transaction. I have been unjustly treated by my employer so, I seek your help, attention and genuine co-operation to our mutual benefit and I believe that you will not let down the trust and confidence I am about to repose on you.

My name is Mr. Onkuku Namiyu, I am 35 years old and for the past ten years, I have been working in a Public Relations firm that pays me about two hundred dollars each month.

On the 21st of February 2000, our company made a very big financial breakthrough when we made contact with MALAM BAGUGU BAKOU and began to supply him cow medicine.

MALAM BAGUGU BAKOU is the PRESIDENT OF THE BAGUDU GROUP. He is a millionaire farmer with cattle farms in MALI, SENEGAL, GUINEA, BURKINA FASO, CHAD REP, and a new one located at ZIMBABWE. Moreover, he is the greatest supplier of cattle, beef and other dairy products to the whole of West Africa.

He informed us about the huge amount of money he has been spending on the purchase of a particular and very important cattle medicine. Precisely, he buys this product at US$5000 per carton. He asked if our organisation can source for a cheaper supplier.

We did market research and discovered that we can buy this medicine in Europe/Asia at US$2,000 per carton. We moved a proposal to THE BAGUDU GROUP, to supply them at US$4,800 per carton, which they accepted. As this supply progressed and our company is doing fine, I requested to my boss for an increase in my salary. He was so upset that he sacked me without benefits after ten years of dedicated service.

I was so desperate that I went to the BAGUDU GROUPS and informed MALAM BAGUGU BAKOU (the president) that I have a foreign contact that will be willing to supply him this same product at US$4,200 per carton. MALAM BAGUGU in turn confided in me that he is about to place an order for One thousand two hundred (1,200) cartons following a suspected outbreak of disease in his farms. I assured MALAM BAGUGU that my foreign contact will be in position to manufacture and supply to him, infact I convinced him that my former boss usually buy from my foriegn contact and that is why he sales to him at a higher price.

HOWEVER, I INFORMED MALAM BAGUGU THAT HE WILL HAVE TO PAY CASH IN ADVANCE BEFORE MY FOREIGN CONTACT WOULD SUPPLY TO HIM. For the moment he has stopped all contacts with my boss.

Please consider on how to handle this profitable project and kindly contact me immediately on my direct yahoo email address for further discussions and negotiations as regards my commission from the total profit after receiving your final payment.

Note: We will buy One thousand two hundred cartons at US$2,400,000. We sell to them at US$5,040,000, our client pays cash before lifting of the goods. (They must not know our purchase point).

My personal contact mailing address for your reply is .

Respectfully yours,
Onkuku namiyu

Dear friend,

LETTER OF ASSISTANCE
====================
I write this letter of assistance with a great sense
of honour and
responsibility in care of ALHAJI HAMZA AHMED, The decision
to write to you was
arrived at after a critical consideration of its
urgency and the severe
pain/terror my entire family had gone through with the
present Civilian
Government of Nigeria after the death of my husband.

I am Dr. (Mrs.) Mariam Abacha, wife of the late
Nigeria Head of State, General
Sanni Abacha, who died on the 8th of June, 1998, while
still on active duty. I
am contacting you in view of the fact that we will be
of great help to each
other and also develop a cordial business
relationship in the near future.

Since the strange and unfortunate death of my husband
(may God's mercy be upon
him), the government has turned against my family and
myself. At first, I
thought it was a normal interrogation from my
husband's enemies but I was proved
wrong. My eldest son, Mohammed is being detained at
the Kirikiri Maximum
Prison, Lagos and most of our bank accounts known to
the Government have been
frozen to frustrate us. It has dawn on us now that it
is a serious battle
between General Olusegun Obasanjo's Government and my
family. As my husband's
regime put him in jail before he was released, he now
wants to get back at us.
My husband's closest associates have betrayed and
deserted us and I no longer
trust anyone of them. Therefore, I am requesting for
your urgent assistance to
help my family and myself have hope through my nephew
to handle this
transaction.

We are going through severe hardship, my son, Mohammed
is in jail and the
remaining ones and myself are under restricted
movement by the Federal
Government of Nigeria. The new democratic President,
General Olusegun Obasanjo
has seized more than US$700,000,000.00 million Dollars
already including landed
properties and investment in Nigeria. You can find
this out in news watch of
7,8,15,21 of year 2000 on website http://
www.newswatchngr.com or Tell of 24th
july 2000 on website http:// www.tell.com.org.

I very much know that I am under surveillance by the
Federal Government of
Nigeria, so I have been making all my contacts through
my nephew without the
Government agents' knowledge.

I currently have within my reach the sum of Fifty-five
Million United States
Dollars ($55,000,000.00), which I intend to use for
investment, like Real Estate
Development specifically in your country. This money
came as a payback contract
deal between my late husband and a Russian Firm on our
country's multi-billion
Dollars Ajaokuta Steel Plant. The Russian Partners
returned my husband's share
of US$55,000,000.00 before his death and was lodged in
my husband's Security
Company of which I am a Director, the new Civilian
Government have intensified
their probe on my husband's financial and oil company.
In view of these, l
acted fast to withdraw the US$55,000,000.00 from the
Company's vault and
deposited as family treasure in a Security Company in
foregn cuntry for safe
custody. I have since declared my husband's Security
Company bankrupt. No
record ever existed concerning the money traceable by
the government because
there is no documentation showing that we received the
money from the Russian.
Due to the current situation in the country concerning
government attitude
towards my family, it has become quite impossible for
me to make use of this
money within, thus consent I shall expect you to
contact me urgently to enable
us discuss in detail about this transaction.

Bearing in mind that your assistance is needed to
transfer this fund, I proposed
a percentage of 30% of the total sum to you for the
expected service and
assistance, 5% for offsetting minor expenses incurred
in the course of this
transaction and 15% wil be used for investment
probably in your company. Your
urgent response is highly needed as to stop further
contacts.

All correspondences must be by the Telephone and Fax
numbers or e-mail address
above. I must use this opportunity to implore you to
exercise the utmost
indulgence to keep this matter extraordinarily
confidential whatever your
decision while await your prompt response.

May the Almighty Allah bless you.

Best regards,

DR. (MRS.) MARIAM ABACHA

that's it for now. Gnite.
Thought you might find this international comparison of Modern World attitudes interesting. It's a laugh! __________ On a group of beautiful deserted islands in the middle of nowhere, the following people were suddenly stranded by a shipwreck:2 Italian men and 1 Italian woman
2 French men and 1 French woman
2 German men and 1 German woman
2 Greek men and 1 Greek woman
2 English men and 1 English woman
2 Bulgarian men and 1 Bulgarian woman
2 Japanese men and 1 Japanese woman
2 Chinese men and 1 Chinese woman
2 Canadian men and 1 Canadian woman
2 American men and 1 American woman
2 Irish men and 1 Irish woman
One month later on these same absolutely stunning, deserted islands in the middle of nowhere, the following things have occurred:

One Italian man killed the other Italian man for the Italian woman.

The two French men and the French woman are living happily together in a ménage-a-trois.

The two German men have a strict weekly schedule of alternating visits with the German woman.

The two Greek men are sleeping with each other and the Greek woman is cleaning and cooking for them.

The two English men are waiting for someone to introduce them to the English woman.

The two Bulgarian men took one long look at the endless ocean, and the other long look at the Bulgarian woman, and started swimming.

The two Japanese men have faxed Tokyo and are awaiting instructions.

The two Chinese men have set up a pharmacy, a liquor store, a restaurant and a laundry, and have impregnated the woman in order to supply employees for their stores.

The two Canadian men and the Canadian woman were too busy trying to create a multicultural diverse and unified society to think about having sex, while politely trying to not to offend anyone or have any strong opinions.

The two American men are contemplating suicide because the American woman keeps endlessly complaining about her body; the true nature of feminism; how she can do everything they can do; the necessity of fulfillment; the equal division of household chores; how sand and palm trees make her look fat; how her last boyfriend respected her opinion and treated her nicer than they do; and how her relationship with her mother is improving.

The two Irish men have divided the island into North and South and set up a distillery. They do not remember if sex is in the picture because it gets sort of foggy after the first few pints of coconut whisky. But they're satisfied because at least the English aren't getting laid either.

PRIVATE E MAIL- kel569@yahoo.com
Greetings sir,

This letter might surprise you because we have not met neither in
person nor by correspondence. But I believe it is one day that you
get to know somebody either in physical or through correspondence. I
got your contact through some discreet inquiry from the chamber of
commerce and industry, you and your organization were revealed as
being quite astute in private entrepreneurship, one has no doubt in
your ability to handle a financial business transaction.

However,I am the first son of His Royal Majesty, WIWA DUKE and the
traditional ruler of Eleme Province in the oil area of Rivers State
of Nigeria. I am making this contact to you in respect of US
25,000,000.00 (TWENTY FIVE million United States Dollars) which I
inherited from my late father. This money was accumulated from
royalties paid to my father as compensation by the oil firms located
in our area as a result of oil presence on our land which hamper
agriculture which is our major source of livelihood. Unfortunately my
father died from protracted diabetes. But before his he called my
attention and informed me that he lodged some funds on a two boxes
with a security firm with an open beneficiary status. The lodgment
Security Code Number was also revealed to me, he then advised me to
look for a reliable business partner abroad, who will assist me in
investing the money in a lucrative business as a result of economic
instability in Nigeria.

So this is the main reason why I am contacting you for us to move this money from the security firm to any country of your choice for investment purposes.
So I will like you to be the ultimate beneficiary, so that the funds can be moved in your name and particulars to any country of your choice where it will be claimed and invested. Hence my father have had intimated the security firm personnel that the beneficiary of the Box is his foreign partner
whose particulars will be forwarded to the firm when due.

But I will guide you accordingly. As soon as the fund reaches, I will
then come over to meet you in person, so that we can discuss
physically on Investment entials.
Based on this instance I and my family have unanimously decided to give you 20% of the total money,2% for charity homes and 3% for expenses, which may arise during the transaction, fax and phone bills inclusive. The balance of 75% you will invest and manage for my family. I hereby guarantee you that
this is not government money, it is not drug money and it is not money from arms deal. Though you have to maintain high degree of confidentiality on this matter.

I will give you all proof of deposit and existence of money once urged and fully satisfied with your capability and honesty. I hope this will be the beginning of a prosperous relationship between my family and your family.
Nevertheless if you are for any reason not interest, kindly inform me
immediately so that I will look for another contact.
I am waiting for your quick response.

Yours faithfully,
WILLIAM DUKE

LAGOS, NIGERIA


ATTN: The President.
Dear Sir,

URGENT BUSINESS PARTNERSHIP.

First, I must solicit your strict confidence in this transaction. Through some discreet inquiries from my local chambers of Commerce, you and your organization were revealed as being quite astute in private enterpreneurship. One has no doubt in your ability to handle a financial business of considerable amount, which will form the bedrock of an extensive business partnership in due course. In unfolding this proposal, I want to count on you, as a respected executive of your company to handle this transaction with all maturity and confidentiality it deserves.

I am a member of the Federal Government Contract Award and Monitoring Committee in the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC). Sometime ago, a contract was awarded to a foreign firm by my committee in NNPC. This contract was over invoiced to the tune of US$10,500,000.00 (Ten Million, Five Hundred Thousand USD). This was done deliberately. The over-invoicing was a deal by my committee to benefit from the project. Specifically, the contract was for the; Construction of Heavy Duty Drilling Pipelines Network and Calibration for Crude Oil and Down Stream Products Distribution and Subsequent Evacuation for the Kaduna, Port Harcourt and Warri Refineries and Petro-Chemical Companies which are subsidiaries of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation.

We now desire to transfer this money which is in the NNPC Suspense Account with the Central Bank of Nigeria to any overseas Account which we expect you to provide for us.

Needless to say, the trust reposed in you at this junction is enormous, we have agreed amongst ourselves to offer you 30% of the transferred sum while 10% shall be set aside for incidental expenses during the course of the transaction. It is our intention therefore, having your understanding and cooperation to invest our 60% share of this fund in importation of agricultural and oil prospecting equipment to sub-Sahara Africa, as it will be virtually impossible to retrieve our share in cash.

I would require from you by return fax and phone confirmation as a matter of urgency the following:

1) Beneficiary/ Account Name and or Company Name, Address, office and home phone and fax #.
2) Name, Address, Phone and Fax # of your Bank.
3) Account # of Beneficiary, Routing, Swift or Telex # of your Bank.

The above information would be used to make formal applications as a matter of procedure for the release of the money for onward transfer to your account.

It does not matter whether or not your company does contract projects of the nature described here. The assumption is that your company won the major contract and subcontracted it out to other companies. More often than not, big trading companies and firms of unrelated fields win major contracts and subcontract to more specialized firms for execution.

We have strong and reliable connections and contacts at the Apex Bank (Central Bank of Nigeria) and the Federal Ministry of Finance and we have no doubt that all this money will be released and transferred if we get the necessary foreign partner to assist us in this deal. Therefore, when the business is successfully concluded we shall, through our same connections withdraw all documents used from all the concerned Government Ministries for 100% security.

We are civil servants and we will not want to miss this opportunity .We want this money to be transferred to the overseas Account for us.

Please contact me immediately through my FAX #: 234 1 759 2911 whether or not you are interested in this deal. If you are not, it will enable me scout for another foreign partner to carry out this deal.

Again we look forward to doing business with you and solicit your atmost confidentiality in this transaction.

Yours truly,

DR.ABUBAKAR AHMED .

* Stop E-Mail Hoaxes in Their Tracks

Last week I was kvetching about receiving way too many e-mail hoaxes.
Friends forward them to either keep me informed (yeah, right, Bill
Gates is going to send me $100 if I say something nice about him), or
ask me if it's a true story. Talk about gullible: One guy, a member of
the users group, actually sent me that silly one from the Nigerian
king who's itching to deposit 5 million bucks in my bank account.
(Although after the deposit, I'll bet I'd get a little bit more
respect from my bank.)

In this newsletter I'll tell you about hoaxes that can harm your
PC--never mind your ego--and a few ways to sidestep being duped.

Want to feel a little dazed and confused? A bunch of unhinged kids are
sending e-mails that pretend to help you remove a worm or virus, or
provide a terrific hack, but actually plant a virus or worm on your
system. On top of that, there's one virus that may--or may not--really
be able to infect you.

Klez.E Worm Immunity Hoax

You've heard of the Klez worm, right? (Hell, you should have--it seems
millions of computers have been infected with Klez...) Just in case,
read "Klez Worm Continues to Spread," at:
http://www.pcworld.com/news/article/0,aid,96923,tk,sbx,00.asp

What's happening now is some miscreant created an antivirus *scam*--an
alleged immunity for the Klez worm. The message (see it below) has
"Class.bat" attached to it, which isn't a batch file at all. It's a
Visual Basic program with the Klez Worm built in. Click on "Class.bat"
and zap, you're infected with Klez.

I want to make sure you understand what's happening. So, folks, read
this carefully: The "free immunity tool" *is* the scam because the
free tool actually contains the Klez worm. The message is made to look
authentic, which is why I said it's an antivirus *scam.*

---------start of antivirus *scam* message---------
Subject: Worm Klez.E immunity
Date: Thu, 09 May 2002 05:17:17 -0700

Klez.E is the most common world-wide spreading worm. It's very
dangerous by corrupting your files. Because of its very smart stealth
and anti-anti-virus technic [sic], most common AV software can't
detect or clean it.

We developed this free immunity tool to defeat the malicious virus.
You only need to run this tool once, and then Klez will never come
into your PC. NOTE: Because this tool acts as a fake Klez to fool the
real worm, some AV monitor maybe cry when you run it. If so, Ignore
the warning, and select 'continue'. If you have any question, please
mail to me.
---------end of antivirus *scam* message---------

The above message is a *scam.* If you get it, don't follow the advice.
Just delete the message and its attachment.

If you do happen to pick up Klez, it's not all that difficult to
disinfect your computer. Grab a copy of Symantec's W32.Klez Removal
Tool from its site:
http://securityresponse.symantec.com/avcenter/venc/data/w32.klez.removal.tool.html

Cool Spot

You know how much I like Google, right? You say you don't? Read my
raves at:

"Tips for Super Smart Web Searches"

"Home Office: The Skinny on Web Searching"
http://www.pcworld.com/features/article/0,aid,52344,tk,sbx,00.asp

Google is opening new search doors with a variety of cool tools. A
Google "set" lets you type two or three related words, say, lettuce,
cucumber, and tomato, and Google's Set feature gives you a list of
predicted items--a long list of vegetables. Click any item to begin a
traditional Google search. There's also a voice search that lets you
call Google by phone (really), and a series of keyboard shortcuts.
Check out the new features at Google Labs:

site that found on the new $20 bills (otherwise known as Yuppie food
stamps) hidden pictures of the World Trade Center and Pentagon

http://www.glennbeck.com/news/05172002.shtml

More Hoaxes. Or Not

* W32.Perrun virus: It's a virus. It's not. No, it is. Well, uh, maybe
it might be. McAfee said the virus was embedded in JPEGs--image
files--but there's been lots of controversy. My take? Even with about
5000 people on assorted private lists I moderate, I haven't had one
report of it. Read the hullabaloo in "Veracity of JPEG Virus
Questioned." It's a virus-free click away:
http://securityresponse.symantec.com/avcenter/venc/data/w32.perrun.html

* EMU_xbox.exe: Want a way to emulate an Xbox game on your PC? Easy
enough-just download the emulator and you're good to go. Oops, wait,
nothing happened when you tried loading the emulator! Read "Fake Xbox
Emulator Hid Trojan Horse" for the whole story. An emulated version
exists here:
http://www.pcworld.com/news/article/0,aid,99586,tk,sbx,00.asp

Hoax Protection

Over the years, I've doled out advice to help keep user group members
from falling for hoaxes. Here are a few of my best tips.

* Watch for forwarded messages with warnings, proclamations,
dreadfully worrisome stories, or financial giveaways.

* If a message has lots of words in capital letters and you see more
than one or two exclamation points, it's a sure sign the message is a
hoax.

* It's as inevitable as a Win 98 crash that you'll receive a message
warning you of a virus or worm. Some of these warnings sound so
plausible--especially with so many new viruses popping up--that'll
you'll be tempted to act on the message's instructions. Or you'll
forward it to EVERYONE YOU KNOW!!! (Forward the one you saved for me
directly to my editor. Thanks.)

If you suspect that a message is a hoax, the best thing to do is to
check any antivirus site--or one of the sites listed below--to see if
your message is mentioned.

http://urbanlegends.about.com/library/blhoax.htm?PM=ss11_urbanlegends

Snopes.com: Urban Legends Reference Page
http://www.snopes2.com/info/whatsnew.htm

You could also take one or two key words from the message and search
on Google. Chances are good that Google may find that it's a hoax or
urban myth. For instance, go to:
http://www.google.com

and type "Christopher John Mineo" (with the quotes), or "nigerian
government official." Really, try it--you'll be surprised.

Dig this: Did you like that last conspiracy site? I have another, and
it's a doozy. Basically, the site provides an amazing display of how
powerful people appear to run the country. Check it out ... unless
you're already experiencing paranoid delusions, in which case avoid
the site, okay?

can have their own copy, earning me brownie points with my bosses.

Deep Linking
Deep Linking: The Latest
Our friend and co-author, Chris Sherman, has provided access to two excellent articles for SearchDay about this important topic. Yesterday, Chris wrote "Deep Linking Lunacy" where he shares several thoughts about the topic, specifically, about a recent court decision in Denmark. Chris writes that if deep linking is found illegal, search engines, phone directories, and tv listings better watch out. He also adds this warning for the academic world and librarians, "But why stop with the web? How about those sneaky academics, citing the work of fellow scholars with footnotes to specific articles using exact page numbers in the journals that published them? And just think of the worst offenders of all -- librarians, who not only help patrons find books, magazines and other materials but often even show them where to find specific information within the works?" Today, guest author Eric Ward has authored, "Linking Legalities: What You Need to Know". Ward writes, "In my opinion, there are only two specific instances where linking to someone else's content could be seen as illegal. First, if a link on your site when clicked loads someone else's content into a frame on your site, so that the user has no idea where that content came from, then you're on thin ice legally. Don't do it. Second, if the site you are linking to has stated on their site that linking is strictly prohibited, or requires permission first then don't link to them unless you have it." Make sure to share these articles with others. Must read stuff!

Dear Sir, I am Wanga Mobutu Sese-Seko, son of the late President Mobutu Sese-Seko of former Zaire, now Congo Democratic Republic. My family and I now live in exile, in Morocco. I believe you are aware through the International press how the European Government froze my late father bank accounts. Recently the French Government confiscated my father's Chateaux in Southof France. In view of this, my family and I are afraid to make any investment without a front. In this line, therefore, it is the wish of my family to solicit for a trustworthy and sincere person who will invest these fund under trusteeship. I am interested in making an enormous investment worth US$50Million in some parts of the world of which will be beneficiary to bothparties SOURCE OF FUND. Before the death of my father, he deposited the above stated funds with a security Firm here in Amsterdam. Hence I am in asylum here in lome. Therefore, I intend to have a front who will manage this funds and invest it into property development, buying of sharesstock in Multinational Companies and engage in non speculative investments and other relatedventures. As soon as I hear from you I will then aarrange a face-to-face meeting for us to deliberate on this investment. It will also give me the opportunity to assess your capability of handling this investment. Please, I will like you to send me your private telephone/fax numbers to allow me discuss privately. Meanwhile, reach me on the above email address. Kindly treat this matter with utmost confidentiality. Best Regards, Wanga Mobutu Sese-Sekocontact me via my e-mail wanga101@mail.com
