Subject: Nigerian Astronaut Wants To Come Home
Dr. Bakare Tunde
Astronautics Project Manager
National Space Research and Development Agency (NASRDA)
Plot 555
Misau Street
PMB 437
Garki, Abuja, FCT NIGERIA

Dear Mr. Sir,


I am Dr. Bakare Tunde, the cousin of Nigerian Astronaut, Air Force Major Abacha Tunde. He was the first African in space when he made a secret flight to the Salyut 6 space station in 1979. He was on a later Soviet spaceflight, Soyuz T-16Z to the secret Soviet military space station Salyut 8T in 1989. He was stranded there in 1990 when the Soviet Union was dissolved. His other Soviet crew members returned to earth on the Soyuz T-16Z, but his place was taken up by return cargo. There have been occasional Progrez supply flights to keep him going since that time. He is in good humor, but wants to come home.

In the 14-years since he has been on the station, he has accumulated flight pay and interest amounting to almost $ 15,000,000 American Dollars. This is held in a trust at the Lagos National Savings and Trust Association. If we can obtain access to this money, we can place a down payment with the Russian Space Authorities for a Soyuz return flight to bring him back to Earth. I am told this will cost $ 3,000,000 American Dollars. In order to access the his trust fund we need your assistance.

Consequently, my colleagues and I are willing to transfer the total amount to your account or subsequent disbursement, since we as civil servants are prohibited by the Code of Conduct Bureau (Civil Service Laws) from opening and/ or operating foreign accounts in our names.

Needless to say, the trust reposed on you at this juncture is enormous. In return, we have agreed to offer you 20 percent of the transferred sum, while 10 percent shall be set aside for incidental expenses (internal and external) between the parties in the course of the transaction. You will be mandated to remit the balance 70 percent to other accounts in due course.

Kindly expedite action as we are behind schedule to enable us include downpayment in this financial quarter.

Please acknowledge the receipt of this message via my direct number 234 (0) 9-234-2220 only.

Yours Sincerely, Dr. Bakare Tunde
Astronautics Project Manager


Abacha Tunde has been in space 14years! Poor guy needs your help!

I've always wondered what they'd do if I gave them the data of my bank account... after all, I'm broke all the time, so nothing there to get robbed!  Laugh out loud

Dear Richter,

I am Barrister FRANK WILLIAMS,a Solicitor. I am the
Personal Attorney to ENGR.FREDRICK RICHTER,a national of your country,who used to work with PANALPINA SHIPPING COMPANY in Nigeria. On the 2nd of April 2000, my client, his wife And their three children were involved in a car accident. All occupants of the vehicle unfortunately lost thier lives.

Since then I have made several enquiries to your embassy to locate any of my clients extended relatives, this has also Proved nsuccessful.After these several unsuccessful attempts, I decided to trace his relatives over the Internet, to locate any member of his family but to no avail, hence I
contacted you.

I have contacted you to assist in repartrating the money and property left behind by my client before they get confisicated or declared unserviceable
by the bank where this huge deposits were lodged.Particularly, the Bank where the deceased had an account valued at about 8.6 million dollars has
issued me a notice to provide the next of kin or have the account confisicated within the next ten
official working days.

Since i have been unsuccesfull in locating the relatives for over 2 years now I seek your consent
to present you as the next of kin of the deceased
since you are from the same country and bears the same surname as his so that the proceeds of this account valued at $8.6 million dollars can be paid
to you as his next of kin and then you and me can share the money. 65% to me and 30% to you,while 5% should be for expenses or tax as your government may

I have all necessary legal documents that can be used to back up any claim we may make. All I require is your honest cooperation to enable us see this
deal through. I guarantee that this will be executed under a legitimate arrangement that will protect you from any breach of the law.Please if you have accepted in transacting this deal with me.

Get in touch with me through my Telephone Number--234
803-3437592 and as well email me through my alternative email address which
is:frankwilliams02@702mail.co.za indicating your interest and also to discuss further so as tell you the necessary proceedings to follow to get this fund transfered to your bank account. It is 100% risk free.

Thanks and God bless
