Another Nigerian Scam letter

Thought you would enjoy this one. Notice how they get all belligerant about scams and frauds

OFFICE OF CHIEF MUSA UMARU YA'RADUA (GCFR)
PRESIDENT& COMMANDER IN CHIEF OF THE ARMED FORCES
FEDERAL REPUBLIC OF NIGERIA

ATTENTION: BENEFICIARRY,

I Chief Musa Ya'radua, President and Commander-In- chief of the Armed Forces Federal Republic of Nigeria wish o bring to your notice that the members of Federal Executive Council office of the Presidency Federal Republic of Nigeria in conjunction with the members of National House of Assembly have unanimously agreed and signed into law that all outstanding contract payments, inheritance and accrued interest payments the Federal Government of Nigeria owed to our foreign contractors and next of kinĒs must be paid through swift ATM CARD. In this payment procedure
your funds will be loaded and configured into the ELECTRONIC COMPUTERIZED AND CUSTOMIZED ATM PAYMENT PREPAID CARD.

All the payment instructions on how you will be withdrawing this funds $10,000 to $20,000 daily from the ATM CARD will be packaged and send to your designated address in your country or you come down to Nigeria by yourself to receive your ATM CARD hand to hand from the office of my Special Adviser on Economic Matters and Foreign Contract payments whom I have appointed to oversee this payment on behalf of Federal Government of Nigeria due to his past proven records as very honest, perfect and GodĒs fearing gentleman.

This occurred due to series of reports and complains we have received from our respected foreign contractors and fund beneficiaries that they are unable to pay bank charges, handling charges, cost of transfer (COT) etc they are required to pay by our paying banks before they will receive heir funds and also to pay for procurement of some clearance certificates like Drug and Money Laundering certificate Anti Terrorist clearance certificate, IMF international Fund clearance certificate etc they are mandated to procure before they will receive their funds in their nominated bank account.

Furthermore in a bid to ensure that I maintain my word and keep the promises I made to President W. BUSH of United States of America and other World Leaders, which I promised that before my tenure in the office elapses by 29th of May 2007 I will do everything humanly possible to see that the Federal Government of Nigeria clears all the debts we owed to world bank, London club of creditors, Paris club, next of kinĒs and all foreign and local contractors that executed contract with the Federal Government of Nigeria. in light of this I have instructed the SWIFT CARD PAYMENT CENTER to issue in your favor a part payment of $10M by ATM CARD and it has been successfully issued in your name and it is presently in custody of my Special Adviser on Economic Matters and Foreign Contract payments CHIEF SOLOMON UGOH.

Therefore for the successful conclusion of this payment and to enable you receive your already issued $10m ATM CARD you are advice to contact MY Special Adviser on Economic Matters and Foreign Contract payment CHIEFSOLOMON UGOH upon the receipt of this fax today on his hot line 234 8025836693 or you send him email on email: atm.atm_nigeria@hotmail.com to discus with him when you will be coming to Nigeria to receive your $10M ATM CARD from his office or you may request that the ATM CARD should be send to you by courier service if you are unable to come to Nigeria as quickly as may be demanded.

This order supersedes any other order or arrangements you have been previously given or told regarding your payment, therefore it must be strictly observed by you if you wish to receive your entitlement from the Federal Government of Nigeria. So you should contact CHIEF SOLOMON UGOH immediately you receive this and tell him that you receive a message from MUSA UMARU YA'RADUA the President of Federal Republic of Nigeria, which you were instructed to contact him for collection of your $10M ATM CARD through his good office.

On A Serious Note If You Refuse to Adhere Strictly to this Instruction and keep on communicating with imposter's, crooks and fraudsters that have deceived and misled you in the past i shall stop and cancel your atm card and you will not receive $1 red cent from the Nigerian Government and i shall not be held responsible for any diversionary tendencies that may occur in your payment if you fail strictly to these directives. I expect to meet you when you come to Nigeria or to hear good news from Chief Solomon Ugoh that you have receive your ATM CARD by courier service.

Yours faithfully,

Best Regards.
DR. DAVE JAMES
FOR THE PRESIDENT.

A former co-worker of mine recieved an e-mail about cashing cheques and he actually replied. He then received another e-mail with instructions and was actually going to respond to start the process, thats when I found out. He started going on about how it was going to be great on the side income etc etc. I asked him for a copy of the e-mail....and within 5 minutes proved that the whole thing was bunk.

As many of these that have circulated over the years, I thought it was common knowledge by now that they were scams...I'm surprised anyone nowadays thinks they have a potential opportunity here!!
