Hi All ,
I just received ths is my e-mail through the NACHI mail server. It seems that the scam artist will try anything to rip people off and get to their money.

maintenance . In view of this, we have started awarding new contracts
to that fect.
As an incentive to do a good job and finished promptly, the Federal
Government makes 75% upfront payment to successful bidders. Looking at
what has been happening in Nigeria and other African Countries, every
wise businessman and Government Official is trying to push out any
money he can lay his hands on so that incase anything happens, they
will have something they can fall back on and be rest assured overseas
on retirement. Based on this, we wish to transfer US$85.050 for
disbursement that we have just secured access to push out. But because
we are citizen and still working civil servant, we cannot move this
money out ourselves.

movement of US$800 million that was disrupt at the Murtala Mohammed
International Airport On August 12, 1995 by the Nigerian Customs and
port Security Officials, hence we decide now to carry out this project
via TELEGRAPHIC TRANSFER. At this point in time we therefore need an
honest, trustworthy and reliable assistance of a foreigner who will be
a kind and honest person to us and will not disappoint us at the end of
