N.B:This email address is more confidential and private.
Thank you for replying to my message. What a nice name you have Sunny. Your name counjers up images of a fine summers day - of orange and yellow colour schemes in the kitchen of a grand Victorian house.
Please allow me to introduce myself. My name is Iama Wayne Kerr, but I don't much like my first name so I go by my middle name Wayne. I am aged 53 and live in London UK. Like I told you before I am a property developer and quite a successful one at that - I have ammassed a small fortune in the property business and could help you to to the same once you come to England.
My personal phone number is +44 7005 860165
My personal fax number is +44 7005 980752
I would prefer it if you call me, as I have had international call barring placed on my phone due to my secretary running up huge phone bills calling her boyfriend in Australia. I will be available to take your call anytime.
What type of property are you thinking about investing in? Commercial or residential? Vacant posession or tenanted? Please let me know so I can better understand your position and begin sourcing properties for you. I know where all the up-and-coming location hotspots are and also where all the best property auctions are held. The trick to investing in property is buying at the right price to begin with.
I look forward to hearing from you again soon.
I am and my colleagues are members of the Contract Award Committee, our duties amongst others is verify and approve for payment contracts awarded and that have been executed since 1999 by foreign contractors with Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (N.N.P.C), we will after due verification approve them for payment. It was in the course of our assignment that we discovered the amount $14.3million which was as a result of over-invoiced contracts by top government officials, the contract in question has been executed and the contractor in question fully paid. We agreed that if we return the funds to government coffers, top government officials will divert it for personal purposes which now necessitate us to transfer it abroad for long term investments in properties, and in the nearest future reinvest the profits back to develop our country in telecommunications with you still acting as our partner although we intend to fulfill all this within the ambits of our laws and yours.
This is where you come in, to act as the end beneficiary of funds via this following procedures.
1)Furnish me with your bank details for the funds.
2)Recommend an attorney for you here to incorporate a company in your name with the Corporate Affairs Commission (CAC), and register you with the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (N.N.P.C) as a foreign contractor in category "A".
3)As soon as he is able to incorporate and register the company in your name, we will proceed to write application to the N.N.P.C for approval of the contract payment in your name.
As soon as as approval is granted, the contract file will now be forwarded to the Federal Ministry Of Finance (F.M.F) for the exchange control approval order number that will facilitate the release of your contract sum from the Central Bank Of Nigeria(C.B.N) into your bank account. Also relevants documents that indicates that the funds are contractual payments and not terrorist money will be secured from relevant security agencies to prove this.
My partners and I will use our influence and position as the constituent member of the Contract Award Committe to facilitate the quick transfer(release) of the contract payment (usd$14,300,000.00) into your bank account.
Also 10% of the funds have been set aside to offset incidental expenses, so we expect you to keep receipt of expenses you might incure in the course of this transaction.
I await your response, time is of the essence.
Dr Sunny Numan.
Thank you once again for contacting me.
My bank details are:
Bank: First Direct Bank
Account Number: 08451419
Sort Code: 03-25-31
First Direct is an internet and phone bank and doesn't have any physical branches, but the web address is www.firstdirect.com This account has been set up to recieve the transfer of your funds.
I'm afraid I do not know any attourneys in Nigeria so would be grateful if you find one for me.
I will help you to travel to the UK and also help you invest your money in property (which is my speciality) once you are there.
Thank you and I look forward to hearing from you again soon.
How are you? Due to the fact that I was extremely busy today I called you
around 5.40pm and left a message on your answering machine, I will call you
tomorrow, be aware that it will be important to find an
alternate way of calling because due to the nature of my assignment right now I will only be chanced occasionally to call, also I will furnish you with attorney that will incorporate company for you at the Corporate Affairs Commission (CAC) and also register it at the N.N.P.C as a foreign contractor in category "A", you will need to call me so that I can explain it to you tomorrow morning, just look for a way to call me and putwhatever you spend in your incidental expenses note.
I await your call and response,
Dr Sunny Numan.
How are you?
I have tried your telephone number several time today, but unfortunately it was on answering machine, as you have indicated interest in this proposal. I will advise you that it is necesaary for us to always communicate also I will want you to acknowledge this email stating your intentions, because time is not on our side in the execution of this transaction, moreover your commitments matters.
I await your response.
Dr Sunny Numan.
I recieved all three of your voicemail messages loud and clear.
I apologise that I was unable to come to the phone today, but I do have a very good reason. At 9:35 am one of my tenants calls me and says that the roof of the house that I let him is leaking. I don't know if you pay much attention to the weather forecasts in London, but this was serious man! I spend all day patching up the leaky roof and by 5.30 pm I finally get away.
Only to be bombarded with phone calls from another tenent who's boiler has broken down. Now I don't know what the weather in Africa is like, but I guess that you can so comfortably live without central heating and hot water for a matter of days. In England, in October, central heating and hot water are not luxuries, they're necessities of living. If you don't have these then you become like an ice-block, frozen solid and unable to move. Every joint is stiff.
So that Sunny, is why I was unable to come to the phone today.
You say you want to invest in property here in England. What I'm asking is have you really thought all this through? Have you even given a single thought to the tenents who will pester you day and night with the most trivial of 'problems'? Are you planning on employing a property management company to take cate of your tements? Or are you, like me, trying to get all the money for yourself and dealing with all the $#1t that goes with it?
What I really want to know are your investment aims, Sunny. Are you looking for a regular income, capital growth or a mixture of both? You still haven't answered my earlier questions about investing in property. You ask me to help you with this investment, but you seem very reluctant to give me straight answers.
I want to make it clear to you that YES:
I will halp you get your funds out of Africa
I will help ypu acquire all the necessary permits and visas you need to travel to the UK as an investor.
Once you are here I will help you invest your money in property
What I won't do is make all the decisions for you. Because if any decision goes wrong I don't want you sueing my ass. YOU now have to make the decisions:
1. What am I hoping to get out of this transaction?
2. How do I really want Wayne Kerr to help me?
3. Am I clear and consistent in my goals?
Because, Sunny, if you're not clear and consistent then any advice I give you will simply be lost. Please be specific when you reply again.
I want to know exactly what I have to do to help you and when. I have sent yuo everything so far, including my bank details for this tarnsaction.
Din't let me down Sunny boy, I'm counting on you!
Thank you very much for your mail, I was unable to call you today due to the fact that I had a tight schedule but all the same I will strongly advise that you make alternative arrangement on the issue of calls this is due to the fact that most of the steps to be taken entails you making calls, so please try and Call me, the gains at the successful completion of this transaction cannot be quantified.
The issue of the properties we intend investing into, actually we are looking at long term investment capital growth. You will manage all our investment for us over there at an agreed percentage, while you get 20% of the funds $14,300,000.00 at the successful completion of this transaction.
You have sent the necessary requirement for now, the next step is actually contacting the recommended attorney which will be via telephone, you will call him that you want his services to incorporate a company here in Nigeria with the Corporate Affairs Commission(CAC) which should be backdated to 1999 and register the company with the Nigeria National Petroleum Corporation(N.N.P.C) as a foreign contractor in category "A", upon the attorney completion of this, we will use this information to file application with the Federal Ministry Of Finance(F.M.F) for payment approval.
So please try and call me so that we can discuss. The whole transaction will take if properly commenced on Monday will take 10 working days to complete, upon which funds will be transferred into your account for subsequent investment, I and my colleagues will now fly down to join you and work out all other modalities, but in terms of investment we are actually going to rely on your expert advice.
But you have to adhere strictly to our instructions as we will not want any thing that will jeopardise this transaction, also the twin issue of confidentiality and secrecy are also important as we have our careers to protect and your intergrity must be protected.
We will do everything within the ambits of the law. So I will require some commitments from you, call me, life is a two way traffic you rub my back I rub yours, call me I call you. We must develop a strong mutually beneficial relationship.
I await your call and response.
Dr Sunny Numan.
Thank you for your mail.
Unfortunately I will be unable to call you as like I have already told you, I have international call barring placed on my phone due to certain members of my staff abusing the privilege. Any communication that we have to make can and must be done via fax or email - or you can call me on my phone number I have given you. These people who you say I must call can jolly well call me if they want me to be of assistance. I suggest that you get the attourney to contact me via telephone, fax or email. Does he have an email address I can contact him on?
You say the attourney wants me to incorporate a company with your CAC government. No problem, only he has to call me or send me his email address.
Sunny, you say that I will get 20% of the money upon completion - what I would rather make is a much more long-term agreement, with me working for you on a consultancy basis - call me your Independent Financial Advisor if you will. You will pay me a commission for every property I source for you (say 3% of the purchase price of the property for example) and I will also help you to maintain your investments and develop the properties to maximise the capital gains - of the gains I will get another comission for my services - actual percentages to be decided.
Do you know that the UK government charge 40% capital gains tax whan you come to sell an investment property? Well, with my expertise I can help you minimise this - almost down to zero - so I am well worth the commission you will pay me. I have a team of tax lawyers and accountants at my disposal who will help you get the best ROI (return on investment). You say you are looking for long-term capital gains. If that is your intention, then buy-to-let may be your best option, but then you will have all the hastle of tanants etc. Luckily have access to a very good property management company who take away the majority of your tenent headaches, but you of course will need to pay them also.
Please advise me on how we can proceed. Thank you
I will call you, because you need to understand this transaction properly and the role you are expected to play.
So await my call.
Dr Sunny Numan.
I revieved your message on my ansaphone and I must say that I do understand this transaction properly. I understand that:
1. The solicitor in Lagos will contact me to arrange all legal documents in relation to the fund etc.
2. Between us we will arrange for the fund to be deposited into my bank account in the UK.
3. You will come to the UK and take posession of your money.
4. I will assist you to invest your money in property.
It's really quite simple and straightforward as far as I'm concerned. Don't think that this is the first time I have done this kind of thing because it isn't. In my experience, money is usually best transferred directly from bank account to bank account through BACS transfer (4 working days) or CHAPS transfer (1 working day). Like I have said my account has already been set up to recieve your transfer of funds and it will be safe and waiting for you when you come to the UK in two weeks time.
PS. Have you got a visa for the UK yet? If not I can help you to obtain one. Just let me know if you need my assistance in that department.
I recieved both the voicemail messaged you left for me and even went to a public phone box ot try and call you back on the number that you gave me. But your number didn't connect even after I tried three times. Like I said to you before on countless other occasions - I CANNOT PHONE ABROAD due to having international call barring placed on my phone. I am also a very busy man so cannot answer my personal phone all the time either.
Even my best friends email me in order to arrange to go down the pub or out playing golf as they know they won't get far calling!
What I propose Sunny, since we're both having dificulties calling each other, is that we communicate what we have to communicate via email. I would prefer that we meet face-to-face in any case. Are you still coming to the UK in two weeks time? We could meet at my office in London. Name the date and the time.
I look forward to hearing from you.
I have already commenced the process of incorporating a company in your name (WAYNE KERR VENTURES LIMITED) with the Corporate Affairs Commission(C.A.C) and also commence registration of the company with the Nigeria National Petroleum Corporation(N.N.P.C) as a foreign contractor in category "A" this is been done this way to save time, we had to use someone representing you to contact the attorney so that he can carry out this brief.
Once this has been achieved I will then forward the application to the Federal
Ministry Of Finance (F.M.F) for approval and authorisation so that the funds
will be released into your nominated account, once the
approval is granted you will be contacted by officials of the Federal Ministry Of Finance(F.M.F) to ascertain and verify claims which will culminate in the fund release process and subsequently the funds will be
released into your account within 24 hours of your signing the fund release document. It is upon completion of this process that we can now commence the process of investment, this is the reason why I believe because of this transaction you have to make alternate arrangements to make calls abroad also expenses incure in the course of the transaction by both parties will be offset by the 10% set aside for such purposes.
Your role as the end beneficiary of funds makes it necessary for you to make international calls. I will be calling you, please treat this transaction with utmost confidentiality because as top civil servants here we do not intend to jeopardise our careers nor yours, and do not want to jeopardise this transaction it is a lifetime opportunity.
Immediately funds are transferred into your nominated account, we will fly to meet you in England and commence the process of investment relying on your expertise.
Dr Sunny Numan.
How are you, I will call you tomorrow and please from henceforth direct all correspondence between us to this new email address([email protected]) this is due to confidential reasons and inorder to ensure success.
Take care and God Bless.
Dr Sunny Numan.
Dear Friend and Partner,
Below are five major prerequisites needed to secure the final payment approval.
1. Establishing a liaison office and employing a company representative.
2. Incorporation of your company here in Nigeria as a limited liability company.
3. Registration with NNP C as a category A contractor.
4. Payment of a three years tax.
5. Securing job Completion cert6ficate for the contract executed.
We have concluded the first three today and I have just send my personal assistance to go and get the tax assessment sheet so that we will know how much we have to pay for the three years tax.
The company representative we used do not know what we are doing is a deal and his office will remain open temporary and then close finally when we have cash the money. The reason for opening a liaison office is to act as the company office incase inquisitive government officer demands for the company liaison office.
We are concurrently working on buying agricultural machineries with our share of the funds. This way our government will not be able to know who owns the money as they will see it as importing company turnover which is taxable at the end of the year but we would have succeeded in bringing back our money for investment.
I await your reply.
Thank you for your call. I am so glad that we are eventually making progress on this transaction and that you have managed to incorporate a company "Wayne Kerr Limited" with the CAC people in your government.
Why suddenly the change of email address? This is most perculiar Sunny.
With regards to the three years tax - I am an expert on tax avoidance - not evasion mind, that would be illegal, but legally minimising tax bills down to almost zero. I suggest you send me all the tax demands and I will have my accountant go over them with a fine tooth comb. This is what I do for a living Sunny, develop properties. If the UK government had their way, they would take 40% of my profits in capital gains tax - the way I manage it they get only about 2% if that (you have to give them something as a token).
Another point, why the fuck are you thinking of buying agricultural machines with your money?!! Vehicles are depriciating assets that reduce in value for every year they age, property on the other hand is an appreciating asset which only gains in value over the long term. I can see why you need me to steer you in the right direction Sunny!
Hold the purchase of the combine harvester and we'll find a few good buy-to-lets instead!!! I rest my case.
I look forward to hearing from you soon.
Your friend and business partner,
Dear Friend and Parner,
I will start with the change of the email box, it was due to the fact that I am suspecting that my secretary know my password to the former box I was using, because there was the day I mistakenly type the password where I am surpose to type the username.
On the tax issue, I am not trying to avoid any tax paymant but only pay the statutory money so that there should not be any delay or hic ups when we get to the final approval stage. From what tax assessment report yersterday,I am going to pay US$94,735. This being the tax for three years. I have told all my colleagues to come up with their part of the money so that I can send your company agent to go and pay tomorrow. and once this is done, I can take all document to the FMF, for final release order and soon after the funds will be in your accounts in 24hours.
As regards what to invest the funds in, I am begining to think that I will leave and wait till I come over to meet with you. Please I will want you to send me your cloths measurement so that I can make some very good african design as gift for you when I come over.
I will speak with you later to keep you posted.
Thank you for your reply.
I'm sorry to hear your email account was hacked into by your secretary - they are most annoying sometimes. I constanty have problems with my secretary - she surfs the internet when she should be working, calls her boyfriend in Australia (hence why I had to have international calls barred on my phone). The only reason I keep her on is because she is leggy and blonde - quite a sight for sore eyes in the morning I can tell you.
With regards to the tax issue - are you absolutely SURE you don't want me to try and save you some money here?! $94 grand seems a hell of a lot to pay - I have NEVER paid that much tax in my life and according to I have owed the inland revenue almost twice that amount on occasion! Another point - why are the government asking you for tax in US Dollars when the currency in Nigeria is the Naira? Seems a bit odd to me...
Lastly my measurements are 42" Chest, 36" Waist and 32" inside leg. I would like to thank you for your most generous offer to have an African outfit made for me as a gift. Please can you send me a picture of the type of outfit you have in mind? I would like a real traditional African outfit - perhaps something tight and sexy made out of zebra skins - or is the poaching of zebras illegal now? I already have a chess set made out of elephant's tusks given to me by another African business partner I once worked with. Is there anything you would like me to get for you as a gift when you come to England? Something you cannot get easily in Africa - like a laptop computer or a top-of-the-range mobile phone perhaps?
Anyway, I look forward to hearing back from you and, of course, to the fund being in my account in 24 hours time. Have you booked your flight to England yet? If so please let me have the itinary and I'll meet you at the airport. Let me know if you have second thoughts about my accountant helping you to reduce your tax bill!
Dear Friend and Partner,
It is nice reading your mail and I think I am beginning to have a picture of you in mind and what you might like.
As regards to the tax issue, I will want to remind you that the original contact was awarded in Dollars, so everything about the transaction is calculated in Dollars. It was stated before the contract was awarded that a foreign contractor must three years tax and obtain the tax clearance certificate before they can be paid his entitlement. So due to this statutory law your company was asked to pay $94 for three years, which if you divide by three will give us about $31+ per year. I will like to also tell you that my colleagues and I not come up with the $94+ but was able to gather $82.5 in our yesterday meeting. One of my colleagues Dr. Igho Nikoro was of the opinion you help out since the transaction is of mutual benefit. Know that there would have been no need to ask you to help but due to the fact that for the past one week we have given tokens to speed up this transaction to this place thus far. Know that anything you assist with will be documented and giving back to you from the 10% set aside for expenses incurred to get this funds before we share.
Please I have tried to call you this morning but the call did not pull through, I will still try to call you later. I will get the pictures of the African outfit and send it to you but since you have already stated the type and kind you want I will tell my local designer what to make for you with your measurement.
I will give you my traveling itinerary once the money get to your account, so I am waiting for the money to reach your account before. Please reach me ASAP.For time is of great essence to this pending transaction.
Dr. Sunny Numan.
You say you are forming a picture of me, well I too am forming a picture of you.
With regards to the tax, I am most willing to help you. I am sure I can reduce the bill by $12,000 so we will not have to come up with the hard cash - hell why give money to the government when it would be so much better spent on ourselves? I have said I will help you from day one.
Now please send me the tax demands that you have recieved from the government. You can fax or email them to me - email is better. Like I have said I will get my accountant to go over them and make savings where they are due - in fact we should be able to save you a considerable amount more than £12,000. I hope your other business partners have not already paid this ridiculous tax bill as it smacks of corruption in government ranks.
Seriously, your government is ripping you off with a tax bill such as this. I think, and this is only my personal opinion, that you would have been better off under the leadership of the late general Sani Abacha - at least his government didn't charge so much tax for nothing!
I look forward to your response,
Your friend and business partner
As regard the tax,I told you in my last mail that it is a stipulated law that all foreign contractors must pay the statutory three years tax before their funds can be paid to them. I will want you to know that my country will not allow any accountant coming from another country to come and teach those in nigeria our government policy on tax.Any thing short of not paying the three years tax is tantamount to circumventing the law of my country.
My colleagues have come up with their parts and it remain the US$12+,Please if you are willing to to help me please do as time is running out in this transaction.
This is once in a life time opportunityto enrich ourself,know that the difference between you and your country's president is the oppirtunity he had and used it and know too that today's decision determines tomorrow's rewards.
I will expect you quick reply to know much you can help us with for I want the funds to get to your this week because I have started prepare for my leave which starts neex week, I will want to use my leave to come over to meet you and invest my part of the funds.
Dr. Sunny Numan
Yes I do have this money and will help you, but feel kind of let down giving money in taxes like this. I am an expert in tax avoidance and feel like why should the government get all my hard-earned money when all they spend it on is refugees and bureaucrats in suits who spend their days humming and hahhing in parliament.
So yes, Sunny, I will help you out with the money if you're absolutely desperate for me to do so, but I want you to know I'm going against all my principles in doing this and you owe me a big favour.
Please let me know how and where to send the money. Thank you.
I want you to know that with this helping hand your rending to me, show that
I will live to thank the day I met you as they say a friend in need is a friend
indeed. Know that whatever favoured you will asked for me
will gladly be given to you.They say a man can mean two things to you either a brother or a friend,a brother is by chance because it was not your decision for him to be your brother but a friend is by choice so I have always believe and trust a friend to help me out because truth brings trust.
Please I will want you to use these three name in sending the wire transfer,this due to the fact the in my country a person is not allow to collect more the US$4,000 a day. They names are
1) Oladipo Samson Rufia
Text Question: who are you ?
Text Anwser : Brother.
2). Ogaga Efe.
Text Question: Who are you?
Text anwser : Personal Assistant.
3) Charles Okorududu.
Text Question: who are you ?
Text Anwser : In-law
Please don't allow this shortcoming stop are Forthcoming.Once this stage is completed,I will start parking my bags to travel down to meet you.I will pay back for all your effort.
DR. Sunny Numan.
Please also remember to add you details because at the collection point
they will ask for senders address.
Once agian for being there.
Dr. Sunny Numan.
I just conform from my colleague now and he said it better you use Western union money transfer in sending us the money.
DR. Sunny Numan.
Today I went to the Western Union office with the money - £9,000 sterling in cash, which is roughly over $12,000 amount in US Dollars. I tried to send the money, but the gentleman at the western union office was questioning me, why I was sending such large amounts of money to four different people in Nigeria.
I said that you and these other four people were my friends and business partners and that I was doing this as a personal favour for you Sunny.
An argument broke out because the cashier was accusing you, my dear friend, of trying to defraud me out of the money. He said that there have been lots of cases where people from Africa have pretended to have large amounts of money in the bank that they want to supposedly move out of the country, but there is no money, people only want the fees from others. Of course I told the asshole at western union that he was lying and that you are a trustworthy and reliable person, but he only laughed at me.
The man at western union said I was a fool and that I should ask you for a genuine photo of yourself before I send the money. He said the only way I can prove that your photo is genuine and not copied from the internet is if you pose for a new photo WITH YOU HOLDING UP A SIGN THAT HAS MY NAME ON IT.
Therefore Sunny, I need you to send me a photo of yourself holding up a sign that reads "Wayne Kerr" or even my full name "Iama Wayne Kerr" if you prefer. You will have to get this photo taken anew and probably have to borrow someone's digital camera or go to a photographers or something, but this is something I need now.
I want to show that stupid man in the western union office that you are genuine - and this is the only way to do it. My reputation is very important to me and I don't want anyone thinking that I am a fool, even if they are only a lowly cashier.
Please send this photo as a matter of urgency and I will immediately go to Western Union again and send the money.
I look forward to recieving your photo with my name on it. Thank you so much for your understanding.
All these to me are obstacles and obstacles are those things you see when you take your eyes away from you goal.My country government gave out all these preventive measure to check money flow.
Please I will take a photographer as they said but before I send it over to you it will take 4-5 days,So I will suggest you use money gram, just go to money gram now and send use one of the names today,then tomorrow morning you do the same with other name,may be you will do the last one by tomorrow evening.I have been trying to call you since but phone is not pulling through.
I will try my very best to take the picture now and send it first thing tomorrow morning.
DR. Sunny Numan.
I'm afraid that we do not have money gram in our country, however, I do
have an offshore account with
Citibank that I can transfer money to other countries with the click of a button. To use this, you also
need to open a Citibank account and I will transfer the money directly to you. To set up a Citibank account will take you 10+ working days if you do not already have one - see www.citibank.com
I strongly believe that Western Union, as you say, is the best method of sending money overseas, so I await your photo in order that I can send this money to you and not look like a fool.
I ask you to run, not walk, to the nearest photographer and have this photo taken. Taking five days is clearly not acceptible either to me, you or your other business partners. Please remember that the photo that you take MUST have you holding up a sign that says "Wayne Kerr" or my full name "Iama Wayne Kerr". A photo without this sign in it is not acceptible.
I am relying on you Sunny to produce this photo tomorrow and NOT in four
days as you say it will take.
I have £9,000 in CASH here waiting to be sent to you and while I have withdrawn this cash from the bank, it is not earning me interest - so I expect you to move fast on the photo thing. Otherwise, I will start making deductions for the interest it is costing me.
Don't fret - it's only business!
I am just coming from where I went to take a photographer holding your name but it will be ready in the next 2hours.
To guide against what happened yesterday in western union,repeating it self
when we are collecting the money here,I will suggest you send it to my Cousin
in Amstardam today after you get my picture.Send it to
PASCHAL EKOYATA in Amstardam and send me the detail,so that he can tell his staff in Nigeria to give me the cash here,this is to enable me pay for the tax tomorrow morning first thing.
I am in try to make sure we get the approvals by Thursday so that I can come over as planned this weekend.
Dr. Sunny Numan.
Attached below is my picture holding your name. I did this to prove a point that I am a man of honour.I will want you to send it through western union to PASCHAL EKOYATA in AMSTARDAM and send me the senders information (address,name and control number.)
I don't want any delay when we want to collect it in Nigeria because one
of my colleagues was saying yesterday in our meeting that there are now some
new rules in sending and recieving money from westertn
union.Time is of great essence to this transaction.
Dr. Sunny Numan.
Thank you for the photo. I can see you are an honest and trustworthy person.
However, I am a little confused by your request that I now send money to someone in Amsterdam. I thought this was money for taxes to be sent to the Nigerian Government. Please explain this change to me. I wouldn't like to think that this money was going to be spent in the 'coffee shops' and red light district of Amsterdam - not without me there to enjoy these pleasures in any case!
What are the western union rules that you mention? I would like to have all the information to hand when I go into the office again with the money.
I look forward to your reply.
I was told that there is a new rule that once the money a person is collecting is more than US$4,000. he will explan the source and with three people pick the US$12,000 the same day from same source that will be alot of explanation,I was think that we should save that delay by using my Cousin, who can pick it up in Amsterdam and he pick it up and ask his staff over here to give me the Naira equavalent so that the problem of recieving a large sum once will be ruled out. I am doing this so that I can pay tomorrow and complete this transaction this week.
My Cousin works with the internal affairs but he is on leave and in Amsterdam
on a trade mission but have fuel filling station which is wife oversee here,so
as soon as he pick up the money he will order his wife
or staff to give the Naira equavalent.But if you so wish you can still send it through western union to the names in Nigeria but I was trying to stop further delay as time is running against the transaction.
Dr. Sunny Numan.
If you decide to use Paschal,please use western union and send me the
details. if it is the names in Nigeria use Western union and send me the
Dear Friend and Partner,
I am waiting for your helping hand. Please do not leave me in still water,it like you have taken me to the middle of the ocean and leave me there,only for me to look around no helping hand and know such sight make ones liver quivers.
Please reach me now so that I will know the way forward.
Dr. Sunny Numan.
I didn't mean to make your liver quiver. The only thing that makes my liver quiver is drinking a whole bottle of champagne chased down with a few shots of Jack Daniels.
Don't worry, help is on the way. I have sent the money to the guy in Amsterdam as you requested. I wouldn't like your heart to fart, your belly to turn to jelly or your liver to quiver as you put it - have you ever thought about publishing a poetry book Sunny?
Anyway, hope to hear from you soon, when the mony has been transferred into my account.
Once again thanks for sending me a life saver. Please send me the wire transfer information like control number,senders address and senders name,so that PASCHAL in Amsterdam can use it to collect the money.
I can't wait to be with you soon.
Dr. Sunny Numan.
The control number is 1002936419
I got my brother Joe to send the money as I was very busy yesterday, so the senders name is Joe Kerr
Address: 21 Grosvenor Road, London WC1
Test question: What am I?
Answer: Iama Wayne Kerr
Please let me know when Paschal picks up the money and the funds are to be transferred into my account.
Words as used now will not be enough to say thank you for rendering a helping hand.
I have just called Paschal to inform him for your wire transfer but he said he will not be able to pick it up today due to his tight business deals but will instruct his wife to give the equavalent so that I can make the payment of the tax today.
I will keep you posted as event unfolds. Once again thanks for being there when it matters most.
Dr. Sunny Numan.
Once again you have rekindle the trust I have in you,when I told my colleagues about the news from my Cousin not been able to collect the money, I told them that you are not a man that say what he does not mean and that they should wait and see the outcome.
Please try to reach him on time, as time is of great essence to this pending transaction.Every seconds count now. I just told my head of department to cancel my leave which was suppose to start on Monday to the upper Monday (17/11/03)to enable me finish all the necessary work before I come since my trip has being pushed forward with this delay by your brother Joe.
I am relying on your unfliniching surport to see me through this storm of life.
Dr. Sunny Numan.
Dear Sunny (or whatever your name is)
I've got news for you, I'm not who I have claimed to be. My name is NOT Iama Wayne Kerr. Think about it. If you say my name out loud it sounds like "I am a wanker" - ie: someone who plays with their penis a lot more than they should!
I can;t believe you haven't rumbled me yet, I mean, I know how desperate you are to recieve my $12,000 US dollars, but I can't even begin to comprehend how lacking in brain cells you are to even believe for one second the bullshit I have been spinning you from day one.
You see Sunny, I knew you were a "419" advance-fee fraudster from the very first email you sent me. I knew the only reason you contacted me was to try and rob me out of my money. Face it Sunny, the millions of dollars you claim to have do not exist. They are about as real as Santa Claus, the Tooth Fairy and my name "wayne kerr". Now we both know where we stand, I think we can still be friends.
You see Sunny, I was going to write you a really rude message, effing and blinding, but today I saw something that changed my mind. Today I saw a documentary about Kenya on the TV and how one man is helping get the little children out of the slums, and what slums they live in. The man who was doing this had nothing. No food, no money, just the clothes he wore, and he still was not trying to steal from people.
I have no way of knowing your living conditions, but I guess you must be quite rich by African standards - you know, having money to spend in the internet cafe's there etc. Sunny, I would like you to stop and consider for a minute what you are doing with your life. God only gives you one life and you make of it what you will. Do you want your only life to be that of a thief?
I know it's not easy for you Sunny, but the best things in life do not come easy. I have not got where I am today by decieving and stealing, I have got there through sheer hard graft and work. I think if you spent half as much time and money as you do scammig being a 'guyman', then you would easily be able to start your own legitimate business. You have spent almost $30 US dollars calling me on my voicemail and countless others at the internet cafe you go to. I ask you, is this game really worth it?
There are other ways, Sunny, even for a poor African, to make maney without having to steal from your fellow human beings.
What do you say? Please reply back and let me know how you feel, even if what you feel is only disappointment at not getting your hands on my money.
Max (my real name)
Now you should know from my mails that I am well read but things are not going as planned so I decided to try my luck on this.
So what can you do for me now to help out of this present status.IF you can render a helping hand it make the difference,Since you are Godly man.
Dr. Sunny Numan.
I read the contents of your mail, but your logic is very much flawed.
Very few people in this world have things handed on a plate to them, me included. The fact is Sunny where you and I differ is that you are a liar and a thief and I am not. I have had countless times in my life where things have not gone 'as planned' or I have been short of cash etc. I have NOT turned to crime in these circumstances.
You are correct that yes, you do have a fairly reasonable grasp of the English language, compared to other 419 scammers who are completely illiterate - why not put that advantage to good use and start a real business of your own that will benefit you and your community instead of 'trying your luck' with this silly, over-used cliche of a scam? You say you are intelligent, but using this stupid scam is not intelligent - the fact is that this 419 thing has been running for at least 10 years now - face it Sunny, you are not even very successful as a thief are you? You can't even be bothered to think up something a little more original.
In scamming, you are not only letting yourself down, you are letting your whole country down. Ask any man on the street what their perception of African business is and most will say things like 'riddled with corruption' and 'backwards'. Why do people think this? Because of people like you Sunny, and this pathetic 419 scam. I must recieve at least four different 419 scams per day in my inbox - all from people like you who just need to GET A LIFE.
You ask me to help you Sunny, well I can't - only YOU can help yourself. You are making a laughing stock of yourself and all Nigerians in general - we have had a very good laugh at your expense - all our conversations are posted online at www.ebolamonkeyman.com along with the absolutely ridiculous photo you sent me.
Get out Sunny, before it's too late and you get thrown into jail.
