Dear Sir:

I'm not sure I completely understand all the particulars as you have outlined them, but I am sure willing to give it a try. How much money are you talking about? You mentioned a credit card, but I can't figure out how you can make this proposition work.

I don't have a phone number that you can call, I am very hard of hearing, almost completely deaf as a result of an explosion at the silage plant. Are you familiar with TDD/TTY equipment? We could use that if you have it, otherwise we better stick with email.

Your Name: Raymond Merganser Azmina

Thank you, Ray Azmina

DEAR SIR,
I was contacted by Mr. Nnamani, who apparently is not sure of the true spelling of his surname, as he has signed his mail, "Nnamani" and also, "Nnamaani". This makes me wonder if he drinks on the job?

Is he of Finnish descent?--his name is very close to my wife's family name, Nnumaani.

The amount you state in your message to me, $2000.00 seems fair, but only if the amount of the credit card is considerably more than that. This was never made clear by Mr. Nnamani/Nnamaani.

If you will be so good as to solidify this matter, I will be most grateful, and will send this money to you by tomorrow latest.

Thank you very much, Ray Azmina



And a short note to Mr. Nnamani/Nnamaani/whatever...

RAYMOND MERGANSER AZMINA

Dear Mr. Nnamani, or Nnamaani,

I am in receipt of your mail, but apparently you are not sure of the true spelling of your surname, as you signed his mail, "Nnamani" and also, "Nnamaani". This makes me wonder if you drink alcohol on the job?

Is you of Finnish descent?--your name is very close to my wife's family name, Nnumaani.

I asked you how much money was involved, but you did not answer my question, so I am not clear how this deal will benefit me.

Thank you very much, Ray Azmina

DEAR SIR,


your mail refers,

i have been very busy here trying to resolve so many issues at stake doing my job sitting on my chair for 7 hours i must have worked much.

your observations are true i do not drink while working i dont even take alcohol i have a finnish descendant from my background but, that was a long time ago it is history over 4 centuries i cant think about this anymore.

concerning your payment i am using this meduim to assure you that between today and friday you should be in a position to start withdrawing from your account once you receive the swift card.

i am quite sure the paying bank must have contacted you, MR E. S. OKOYE of the RIMS MERCHANT BANK PLC in lagos .

please give him maximum cooperation for him to release the swift card to you on time i think from your obsevations it is free but the cost for processing is paid for by the beneficiary and cost for sending which the .bank knows much about .

my job is to screen and recommend that payment should be allowed which is what i have done.

the amount that you will receive is $38.6 million us dollars, please contact him today and cooperate with him as soon as possible .

congratulations.

Best regards

Ken nnamaani



RAYMOND MERGANSER AZMINA

Dear Ken Nunumaani,

Are you kidding me? Do you mean to say that your banking man will issue me a credit card worth over $38 MILLION dollars?

There has to be some mistake, the most I've ever had on a "Diamond-Card" is $10,000.00, and that's because my credit is perfect, and they did a lot of background checking on me.

You're telling me that this E.S. Oyokel is going to send me a card without even seeing me face-to-face? This doesn't make any sense, especially when all that is required from me is a paltry $2000. I can see a card worth several thousand dollars, but not many millions.

Tell me, is this a real deal, or is this just some of you wiseacres in the mailroom, trying to put one over on me? I admit, the prank I pulled on you bozos last April Fools Day was a corker, but this seems to top it. Is this just a trick by Beavis and Morey Butthead? If it is, I don't mind telling you, you guys had me going for a while.

I'm anticipating a reply from you.

Ray Azmina

DEAR SIR,
I HAVE JUST RECEIVED THE EMAIL YOU SENT TO THE SENATE PRESIDENT OFFICE. I AM IN A BETTER POSITION TO ANSWER YOUR QUESTIONS NOT HIM HE IS NOT A BANKER YOU SHOULD HAVE ADDRESSED THE ISSUE TO ME.
IT WAS NOT ONLY EMBARASSING AND DEBASING THE CONTENT, GOOD PEOPLE ARE HARD TO FIND WHEN IT COMES TO MONETARY MATTERS.
IN THE FIRST PLACE THE SWIFT CARD IS A NEW INNOVATION THAT ELIMINATES FRAUD AND DUE TO VARIOUS COMPLAINS RECEIVED IN THE PAST IT IS NOT MEANT FOR SLOTTING INTO AN ATM MACHINE NO YOU GOT THIS WRONG RATHER WHEN IT IS RECEIVED IT IS PRESENTED TO YOUR BANK AND IT GOES THROUGH PROMPT VERIFICATION THROUGH THE NETWORK IT TAKES LESS THAN FEW MINUTES FOR VERIFICATION IT IS AS GOOD AS CASH WHAT IS YOUR IS PAID TO YOU .
IT IS MEANING LESS DEDUCTING AND STEALING FROM YOU BECAUSE IT IS NOT THE BEST.
THAT IS HOW IT WORKS I HOPE YOU ARE NOW SATISFY WITH MY EXPLANATIONS I WILL ADVISE THAR DELAYS SHOULD NOT COME IN FROM YOU EXCEPT YOU WILL PREFER THE FUNDS COMING TO YOU IN TWO INSTALLMENTS THIS IS YOUR OWN IDEA IF YOU WISH BUT, NORMAL BANKING WE DO NOT DEDUCT OR STEAL WHAT DOES NOT BELONG TO US THE AMOUNT ON THE PAPER IS WHAT IS PAID OUT.

Dear Sir:

As I wrote to Mr. Nunumaani when he first contacted me:

I don't have a phone number that you can call, I am very hard of hearing, almost completely deaf as a result of an explosion at the silage plant. Are you familiar with TDD/TTY equipment? We could use that if you have it, otherwise we better stick with email.

If you think we could communicate better by phone, you are quite mistaken. I can't hear, so I would not be able to know what you are saying. Do you understand the word DEAF? For all intents and purposes, that is what I am.

If you have a problem with communicating by e-mail, we can say goodbye at this point, with no hard feelings. I was going to drive to the bank to withdraw the $2000 this afternoon, but I can stay around the office and catch up on some tax matters instead.

Sincerely, Ray Azmina



Stir the pot a little (even though I know they're both the same Lad)...

RAYMOND MERGANSER AZMINA

Ken Nunumaani,

I have heard from your banking official, but he doesn't appear to be too smart, he sends his messages to me twice, as if they are so important that I might not pay attention to the first one.

Are you sure he doesn't drink on the job? Very unprofessional, if you ask me.

Ray Azmina



Gotta try to shake him up a bit...

RAYMOND MERGANSER AZMINA

Dear Sir:

I have re-read your mail, and I think I understand what you are saying.

From what I can gather from your limited command of English, is that the entire sum of $38.6 million dollars is not mine, but only a portion of it? How much of a portion? 10%? 20%? 40%? More?

Please reply as soon as possible, my wife Sylvia is pestering me about the money, and especially the $2000 I'm supposed to send you.

The Senate President-Lad is kinda upset with me...

KEN NNAMANI

Received: from [196.1.176.50] Wed, 22 Feb 2006 08:14:46

DEAR SIR,


your reply has been received but, i must say that the content does not sound very realistic and it is very debasing why should you use the word smart for a person?

He was only trying to send the message across and the internet connections here are not so fast at times it will indicate that it has gone only to return back this i am quite sure must have made him to send it twice. On the issue of being drunk have you ever seen anybody drinking on duty? why have you chosen to call everybody a drunkard? this is very unfair we should learn to show sense of humor in all we do.

please he is the person paying not me i have explained this to you my job is to verify and be cerain that you are the beneficiary the money released so far for payment is the sum of $38.6 million us dollars and from all indications it has to be shared for the beneficiaires concerned , already he has commenced payment i think to a beneficiary in the uk MR PETER FINLAY he must have received is payment by now and remaining you and the last beneficiary.

My advice is for you to expedite action and conclude with him today rather than delaying. have a blessed and fun fill day.

Friday morning, I finally get around to answering the mail...

RAYMOND MERGANSER AZMINA

To Ken Nunumaani:

The word, "Smart" is used in reference to a person's intelligence.

The words are interchangeable, when I say your bank official does not appear to be too smart, I mean that he does not appear to be too intelligent (not too "swift", not too "bright", not the "sharpest tack in the box", not too knowledgeable, not the "brightest light on the marquee", a sandwich shy of a picnic, the "elevator doesn't go all the way to the top", I'm sure you get my drift by now!)

But I still think he probably drinks on the job. Watch him.

And, as far as "learning to show a sense of humor in all we do", there is no one in the world who has more fun than I, and sees more humor in all they do than I do! I believe that I feel a little insulted by that remark, Sir!

Thank you, Ray Azmina



And a little note to the Bank-Lad...

RAYMOND MERGANSER AZMINA

Dear E.S.Okoye:

Do you mean that for the paltry amount of just $200.00, you're going to send me a card that I can give to my bank, and they will automatically credit my bank account with over $14 MILLION dollars!????!!

This is just too good to be true! Man, I'm all over this like white on rice! I'm leaving for the Western Union office in a few minutes. I'm going to stop at my boss's office and tell him to take my job and give it to somebody who can use the $36,000 more than I can. I'll be on Easy Street for the rest of my life!

Expect to reeive the $200 soon.

It must have been someone who worked in the office about 6 months ago, by name of E.S.Okoye, whose assistant clerk is Emmanuel Obiozo. Does that ring a bell in your memory?

Personally, I got the strong impression that he drank liquor on the job, and was probably fired for it, but that's just my opinion.

The money you were referring to, it is $38.5 million dollars, correct? When will I get it?

RAYMOND MERGANSER AZMINA

Dear Sir:

Am I to understand that you are advising me to discontinue any communications with Mrs. Shola Davis?

And why are you, a man of such authority in your country, contacting a nobody like me? I should think that you would have one of your subordinates attend to such a tiny matter. Surely you have more important things to deal with than to write to me with the request of such a small amount of money. You must keep at least 5 times that amount in your wallet, to use for "walking-around money" in case you need to buy some Cuban cigars, or Whiskey?

Why don't you advance the fee of $975.00, and I will reimburse you out of my proceeds when they are transferred to my account?

Meanwhile, I will cease corresponding with anyone until I hear from you again.

A short note to Mrs. Davis...

RAYMOND MERGANSER AZMINA

Mrs, Davis:

I have been instructed by your country's president, Mr. Olesengu Osabanjo to NOT correspond with anyone but him.

Sorry for the delay in replying to your mail, but I haven't heard from him in a couple of days, so it is probably OK to tell you what's happening.

Apparently, Osabanjo is taking this matter out of your hands.

Raymond Azmina



And one to "Osabanjo"...

RAYMOND MERGANSER AZMINA

Dear Sir:

Am I to understand that you are advising me to discontinue any communications with Mrs. Shola Davis?

And why are you contacting a me using this woman's email address--Is she your secretary? Why don't you have your OWN email account?

Surely you have more important things to deal with than to write to me with the request of such a small amount of money. Why don't you advance the fee of $975.00, and I will reimburse you out of my proceeds when they are transferred to my account?

Meanwhile, I will cease corresponding with anyone until I hear from you again.

Sincerely, Raymond Azmina

Dear Mrs. Shola Davies,

Thank you for the warnings about this impersonator! He wanted me to send him nearly a thousand dollars for some documentation, but I suggested that he put up the money, and I would pay him back for it.

I even asked him why he didn't use his OWN email account, instead of some woman, a "Mrs. Nenadi Usman" who is supposed to be a "finance minster"--HAH, a likely story!!

"Her" address is: financeminster_fm@yahoo.com, in case you wish to get the authorities onto "her" scheme.

Now that I hear from you, I think this was very wise on my part, maybe he will give up, and go try to rip off somebody else.

RAYMOND MERGANSER AZMINA

Dear Shola Davies,

Thanks for your reply. I think I would rather do business with you, since you contacted me at first about this business.

Needless to say, I was quite suspicious about the imposter, I felt as you did that the head of a nation wouldn't be likely to contact somebody like me, I've never been involved in any political stuff, and if I ever DID have anything to do with a head-of-state like Mr. Osabanjo, I'd probably be so nervous I couldn't talk!

I'm going into the hospital this morning to have a little minor surgery done, and I expect to be home again tomorrow. I'll probably be sleeping a lot this afternoon and tonight, so don't bother to write today.

Contact me then with the procedure for getting this deal off the ground.

Excuses, always excuses, but this one's a dandy! I send it Sunday afternoon...

RAYMOND MERGANSER AZMINA

Mr. Shola Davies:

This has been a terrible weekend! I have been hospitalized since Wednesday, just as I was about to contact your Mr. Williams, I suffered a serious hemorrhage at the surgery wound, and when I was unable to staunch the blood-flow, I called the ambulance service, and they took me to the nearest hospital.

It's not my regular hospital, but a good one nonetheless, and it was determined that I had lost most of my blood--almost 12 pints--it's a good thing that I called when I did, I might have died there and then, in the middle of a letter to Mr. Williams! I had to have emergency transfusions, and the doctors just released me today, after being stable for the required 60 hours. All the new blood must be doing its job, at least it's staying inside me.

Finally I am home, but I must have round-the-clock nursing care for the next 3 days. (I chose this option, as it is cleaner at my own home--do you have any idea how filthy hospitals are? You are well advised to spend as little time as you can in any of them! When I think of the millions of germs flying around, it makes me sick! And the cost of 3 private-duty nurses is much less than a room at the hospital!)

I will nap now for a little while, then I will contact your Mr. Williams. He probably won't get my mail until start of business day tomorrow, anyway.

If you are "Mrs. Nenadi Usman", why do you sign your mail "osalungu osabanjo"?

Do you present yourself as president of your country? Do you think that pretending to speak for your Nigerian president, that I will be impressed? If so, you are mistaken.

If you had been honest with me from the beginning, and introduced yourself as who you are, instead of pretending that you are the head of your government, I would not have to even address this issue.

Furthermore, "Shola Davies" is not a woman, he told me he is a man, but when I attempted to write to him, the mail wasn't delivered. Perhaps he truly is a fraudster, as you said.

What is this $975.00? Is that all I have to pay in order to receive millions of dollars into my bank? Explain in detail what this charge is, and to whom I send it, so that I may present it to my people.

Are you a woman?

Shola,



RAYMOND MERGANSER AZMINA

I have been in correspondence with Nigerian President Osabanjo's assistant Mrs. Nenadi Usman, and they seen to think you are a WOMAN. They insist on addressing you as, "MRS. Shola Davis".

I tried several times to correct them, but I guess they have made up their minds.

Just a suggestion, have you considered undergoing a sex-change operation? I understand that they are quite painful, and you'd have to take female hormones for about a year, plus psychological screening twice a week, but the results can be quite satisfactory, especially after the breast implants are done.

I have a couple of friends who had the surgery, and they are very happy with their choice. They have beautiful clothes, and their wigs are just FABULOUS! You should see their shoes--to DIE for!

Now, understand, you wouldn't be able to have children, of course, (the "play pen" would be there, but no "crib") but they are a bother anyway. All that noise and dirty diapers.

The reason I suggest a sex-change is that if the President of Nigeria thinks you are a woman, perhaps you should become a woman! From what I know of the fellow, he'd probably force you to become a woman rather than admit he'd made a mistake.

Let me know what you think of this idea. I would be happy to refer you to a surgeon or two who could help you in this endeavor.

Dear Shola Daves,

I will take your advice and update on that site you mentioned. I suppose your messages will be there soon. The good folks there are very prompt and accommodating when it comes to updates, so our recent mails to each other will be available for viewing very shortly.

On the other note, have you given my suggestion (about the sex-change) any further thought? I really do think that if you became a woman, this anger you have inside will be somewhat alleviated, perhaps because of the female hormones, and also the breast implants--if you get really BIG ones, it will make you proud of yourself, and you will be nicer to everyone.

Think about it.

So what you will do for this Country is by making sure that you assist in tracking him.

Firstly,You will try to get in touch with him by any means either mail or phone or any means you know better and you should inform him that he has a packet to collect for his country independent celeberation Gift because Nigeria is 46 being Yesterday Sundau being 1st of October.

This will interest him much and you told him to send to you his house address so that you will send it to him and also his telephone number too.

RAYMOND MERGANSER AZMINA

Dear President Osabanjo and Mrs. Nenadi Usman,

Thank you for your warning about this Shola Daves character, and for the information on how to flush him out of his hiding place. The suggestion that he is to win a prize is very clever. It may be just the lure to catch such a criminal.

I will contact Shola Davis again, and see if I can get an address from him.

Thanks again, Raymond NMI Azmina



RAYMOND MERGANSER AZMINA

Dear Shola Daveis,

I have just been contacted by the office of President Osabanjo, and he tells me I am to give you this information:

"...You should inform him that he has a packet to collect for his country independent celeberation Gift because Nigeria is 46 being Yesterday Sundau being 1st of October.

Shola Daves is to send to you his house address, and also his telephone number too.

That he should send the Receiving name (his Real Name) and the real address where this gift will be send to..."


Please, Shola, write back to me and let me know your full name and your address, so that your prize can be delivered to you by courier from President's office. I understand they at the office would be grateful for your telephone number as well.

Sincerely, Raymond N. Azmina

RAYMOND MERGANSER AZMINA

Dear Mrs. Unsam &President Osabanjo,

I am ready to send the payment of $975 to you, but where to what address, and by what means? In a previous mail, I recall you wrote to send it to "Alexander" but no surname. That is just foolish.

Do you mean to say that just anyone can go into the wire office and say, "My name is Alexander!" and they will hand him nearly a thousand dollars? I don't think so. You'd better give me better instructions or we'll just say farewell to this deal.

Already it has taken longer than you said it would.

Raymond NMI Azmina



[A short note to Shola...]

RAYMOND MERGANSER AZMINA

Dear Shola Daves,

I'm surprised that I haven't heard from you since last week. Does this mean that our transaction is no longer viable?

I have heard from the office of the president, through his assistant, Mrs. Nenadi Usman, and they tell me that my charges amount to $975.00 to have the fund transferred to my nominated account.

This seems reasonable, so I have kept up communications with the office of the Presidency. They seem keen on finding and prosecuting you, though, so watch your step.

Let me know how you came out with the sex-change surgery, or if you decided to postpone it for a while. Don't forget, the President Osabanjo thinks you are a woman, so you must seriously consider becoming a woman.

Dear good friend,

I'm happy to inform you about my success in getting those funds transferred under the cooperation of a new partner from London, UK. Presently I'm in London for investment projects with my own share of the total sum.

Now contact my secretary, her name is MRS. grace kuku (Secretary) (gracekuku@jmail.co.za), tell her to send you the international cashier's Bank Draft I raised in your name worth $520,000.00USD as a compensation for all the past efforts and attempts to assist me in this matter .I appreciated your efforts at that time very much, so feel free and get in touched with my secretary Mrs. grace Kuku and advise her where to send the Draft to.

Please, contact NOW, my confidential secretary,
Mrs GRACE KUKU. (Secretary)
E-mail: (gracekuku@jmail.co.za )

Please do let me know immediately you receive it so that we can share the joy after all the pain we go through at that time. At the moment, I am very busy here because of the investment projects which I and the new partner are having at hand.

Finally, remember that I had forwarded instruction to the secretary on your behalf, so feel free to get in touch with her and she will send the Draft to you without any delay.

With best regards.
Dr Adams Goodwin.



[But it deserves the courtesy of a reply, however confused...]

RAYMOND AZMINA

Sir:
I am not certain who you are. Does this have anything to do with my correspondence with one President Osabanjo (through his secretary Mrs. Unsman) regarding the transfer of several millions of dollars?

I have been in negotiations with that office of Finance for several months now, and we are starting the transfer process.

Your input to this question would be greatly appreciated.

ADAMS GOODWIN

Received: from [80.255.41.170]
Date: Wed, 25 Oct 2006

Dear Raymond,

What I am about to tell you is strictly confidential. If you are wise, you will keep a closed lip and would not let it out of your heart. President Olusegun Obansanjo had opened an offshore payment centre in Europe. What the officials are doing is to use a foreigner like you to process the fund to a perfect end and divert the fund to their own personal account living you with nothing.

Honestly, I used your personal information to transfer out a reasonable sum of money and I decided to give you 520,000:00 USD for you through Mrs. Kuku as compensation.

I will transact other businesses with you from Europe through the offshore payment centre set-up by the president, provided you disregard all communication with Mrs. Usman and keep this arrangement with utmost secrecy. They want to use you to process the money and dump you without giving you anything. I believed that once you collect that money from Mrs. Grace, it will go a long way to establish trust between us in subsequent transactions.

Regards,
Adams Goodwin.

NOTE: MRS ESTHER NENADI USMAN IS THE MINISTER OF FINANCE AND NOT PRESIDENT OBASANJO'S SECRETARY. WHATCH OUT FOR IMPOSTORS.

Dear Mrs. Grace Kuku,

I apologize for this delay in replying to your mail of last week. I have been just inundated with work, to the point where I rise in the morning, go to work, I am busy at least 14 hours, and come home to sleep! I barely have time for eating and a shower.

When I took this job, I knew I would be challenged, but I never dreamed it would be this bad. It's a good thing they pay me well for my employ!

Please forward the draft to my bank. I will be happy to see it.

Thank you, Raymond NMI Azmina

I am waiting for your direction, already this transaction has taken far too long.

When I first became aware of it, I was told that the thing would be concluded in 14 working days, and we are entering the 10th month of negotiation! I'm beginning to wonder if I have made an error, in agreeing to partner with your banking firms and all the people I have had to correspond with. I can't figure out how you manage to stay in business!

[I'm afraid I'm going to have to injure Raymond...(I hate to, he's such a swell guy, but ya gotta do what ya gotta do.)]

HUGH JARDON

Dear Mrs. Grace Kuku,

I am Hugh Jardon, attorney for Raymond Azmina, the man you have been corresponding with for the past few weeks. I understand you and he are partners in some business involving a considerable sum of money.

Azmina is currently in the Hospital, he suffered some injuries last week when he was attending to some errands. HIs automobile was hit broadside by a runaway rendering truck, quite the messy situation! It took several hours to extract him from the wreckage.

He will be incapacitated for a while, he is in and out of consciousness now, and doesn't have any idea how seriously he was hurt. He told me to write to you with this information, so that you will not worry about him, he thinks he will be able to go home by the weekend. His doctors are not so sure, and I tend to rely on their expertise.

I will write again as soon as I know anything new that you should know about.

Sincerely,
Hugh Jardon, attorney-at-law

[Whee! This definitely gets my attention, and deserves an immediate reply...]

RAYMOND AZMINA

Dear Mrs. Unsman,

I have not heard from you in several weeks, and now you send me this gibberish? What school did you drop out of? This reads like it was written by an idiot! Are you drinking on your job?

"...How are you today and my sisters hope fine..."

I am in good health, thank you. But I do not know your sisters, Hope and Fine, nor do I care about them.

Write back when you sober up. I cannot make sense of this silly letter!

Does your boss know you drink on your job? Does he care that you send out such nonsense, and make his office look so foolish?

I have been willing and able to co-operate with you in this, even though Mr. Adams Goodwin, and his financial officer, Mrs. Grace Kuku tell me that you are a fraud, that I should not trust you.

Raymond Azmina
