419 Obama

5 Jan


We have received a copy of the letter sent to President Obama by prominent Nigerian banker Alhaji Umaru Mutallab, father of pantybomber Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab. After reading this letter, you will be just as shocked as we are that the President did not respond to this communication in a timely manner.  MUST CITE WNYMEDIA IN ALL REPORTS!@!@#!@


From: Alhaji Umaru Mutallab – Alhaji_Umaru_Mutallab@yahoo.com

From The Desk Of Alhaji Umaru Mutallab.
The Head Of File Department
African Development Bank A.D. Bouagadougou Nigeria.

Compliment of the season on a very good day! I am Alhaji Umaru Mutallab, the former Chairman of the First Bank of Nigeria. I got your contact from Google search of your name.

When i was searching for a foreign partner I was assured of your capability and reliability to champion this intelligence opportunity when I prayed to Allah about you. In my department we discovered an abandoned sum of $15 million U.S.A dollars. In an account that belongs to one of our foreign customer who died along with his entire family in a plane crash. Since we got information about his death, we have been expecting his next of kin to claim his money because we cannot release it unless somebody applies for it as next of kin or relation to the deceased as indicated in our banking guidelines. But unfortunately we recently learned that all his supposed next of kin or relation died alongside with him at the plane crash leaving nobody behind for the claim. After reading extensively the writings of Orly Taitz, it has recently been discover that you are of African descent! It is true that you are born of Kenyan blood and shall be the sole recipient of these funds.

It is therefore upon this discovery that I and one official in my department now decided to make this business proposal to you and release the money to you as the next of kin or relation to the deceased for safety and subsequent disbursement since nobody is coming for it and we don’t want this money to go into the bank treasury as unclaimed bill.

The Banking law and guidelines here are very rigid and stipulate that if such money remained unclaimed after five years, the money will be transferred into the Bank treasury as unclaimed funds. The request of foreigner as next of kin in this business is occasioned by the fact that the customer was a foreigner, and a Nigerian cannot stand as next of kin to a foreigner. We agree that 30 % of this money will be for you as foreign partner, in respect to the provision of a foreign account, 10 % will be set aside for expenses incurred during the business and 60 % would be for me and my woman colleague. Thereafter I will visit your country for disbursement according to the percentages indicated. As I have recently seen on your Fox News station, you have much debt and very angry people who strongly dislike those of Kenyan descent, Muslims or anyone not Christian or uneducated. You need monies and we are willing to assist your war torn country with these monies.

Therefore to enable the immediate transfer of this fund to you as arranged, you must apply first to the bank as relation or next of kin of the deceased indicating your bank name, your bank account number, your private telephone and fax number for easy and effective communication and location where the money will be remitted. Please do not connect us with the angry Jewish man in your office as point of contact, we understand he is not sympathetic nor reasonable.

Upon receipt of your reply, I will send to you by fax or email the text of the application I will not fail to bring to your notice that this transaction is hitch free and that you should not entertain any atom of fear as all required arrangements have been made for the transfer.

Alhaji Umaru Mutallab

POST SCROTUM: You have to keep everything secret as to enable the transfer to move very smoothly in to the account you will prove to the bank. As you finished reading this letter call me immediately so that we discuss very well over this business. Again, do not speak of this to the press or the angry Jewish man who is occasioned as your Chief of Staff, he will try to take the money for himself and will then yell at me.

POST POST SCROTUM: My son, Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab plans to fly on a one-way ticket with no luggage from Yemen to Amsterdam to Detroit with a nutsack full of powdered explosives in order to commit horrific acts of terror on your people on Christmas Day. Please be occasioned for further details by responding to my earlier request for your banking account information. He is growing increasingly insane and I believe he is quite serious about taping bomb to his balls.

Best Way Yet for Buffalo To Reach Economic Greatness?

12 Jan

From the Buffalo Ruse:

Buffalo Mayor Byron Brown announced yesterday that the fiscal crisis endured by the city for the past 35 years is nearing an end due to the overwhelming generosity of a Nigerian man who contacted him via e-mail in August, 2008. “Last summer I opened my personal Yahoo e-mail account and discovered a message from a man named Moses Odiaka who works at a bank in Nigeria.” Brown explained that in return for assisting Odiaka with a number of “processing fees” and “wire charges,” the Nigerian is planning to transfer almost $28 million dollars to the City of Buffalo so that, according to Brown, “the city may once again stand fiscally strong as we face the challenges of the 21st century.”

Good to see that the city is looking into all available modalities, and has likely opened up a Western Union money transfer account.

Maybe this is for realz?

Dear Mr. American,

Good day and compliments.

I am HENRI PAULSON, the Ministry of the Treasury of the Republic of America, and the personal financial adviser to GEORGE W. BUSH (the eldest son of the former dictator of America, GENERAL GEORGE HUSSEIN WALKER BUSH).

This letter will definitely come to you as a huge surprise, but I implore you to take the time to go through it carefully as the decision you make will go off a long way to determine the future and continued existence of the entire members of my country.

It is with deep sense of purpose and utmost sincerity that I have the privilege to write you this letter knowing full well how you will feel as regards to receiving a mail from somebody you have not met or seen before. There is no need to fear, I got your address from a Wall Street business directory which lends credence to my humble belief. I also assure you of my honesty and trustworthiness. I need to ask you to support an urgent secret business relationship with a transfer of funds of great magnitude.

During the last Military Regime here in America, the Government officials set up companies and awarded themselves contracts which were grossly over-invoiced in various ministries. My country has had great crisis that has caused the need for large transfer of funds of US$800,000,000,000.00 (eight hundred billion US dollars) in cash for safe-keeping. If you would assist me in this transfer, it would be of most profitable for you.

I am working with the honourable MR. PHIL GRAMM, lobbyist for UBS, who will be my replacement as Ministry of the Treasury in January. As Senator, you may know him as leader of the American banking deregulation movement in the 1990s.

This is a matter of great urgence. We need a immediate blank cheque. We need the funds as quickly as possible. We cannot directly transfer these funds in the names of our close friends because as civil servants we are constantly under surveillance by Democratic members of Congress, the media, and the American public. My family lawyer, MR. RICK DAVIS, advised me that I should look for a reliable and trustworthy person who will act as a next of kin so the funds can be transferred.

Please note that this transaction is 100% safe and we hope to commence the transfer latest seven (7) banking days from the date of the receipt of the following information: all of your bank account, IRA and college fund account numbers and those of your children and grandchildren to wallstreetbailout@treasury.gov so that we may transfer your commission for this transaction. This way we will use your country’s name to apply for payment in your name. After I receive that information, I will respond with detailed information about safeguards that will be used to protect the funds. That’s all. Let me know what you think about this.

We are looking forward to doing this business with you and solicit your confidentiality in this transaction.

May Allah show you mercy as you do so?

Your faithfully,

Dr. Minister of Treasury Paulson

Too Good to Be True?

5 Jul

Then it probably is.

I thoroughly enjoyed these quotes from this article:

“Certainly, the allegations that we participated in any scheme with any knowledge of any scheme are totally, totally scurrilous,” Behr said. “This lawyer is an SOB, frankly.”

“This is scurrilous and scandalous that he puts stuff like that in,” Behr said. “He’s a real bastard, I have to tell you. This is not how you plead a lawsuit. He’s trying to shame us and embarrass us.”

The underlying facts, however, are more troubling:

Behr received a check for the amount owed, deducted his 15 percent fee, or $36,000, and sent the remaining $208,000 on to Yu, according to the lawsuit filed by IndyMac Bank in Pasadena, Calif., the nation’s seventh-largest savings and loan.

But there was a problem, the bank said.

The check was drawn on a home equity account the bank approved for two borrowers, and was fraudulent, according to the lawsuit filed against Behr on behalf of the bank by Richard

J. Landau of Ann Arbor, Mich. Landau demanded that Behr return the $36,000 fee, Behr refused, and Landau sued him in U. S. District Court in Buffalo.

Behr denies that he was part of any fraud.

It looks like the Buffalo lawyer was a unknowing patsy for a probably Nigerian scam operator. Here, the bank is the victim – not the lawyer, amazingly enough. I’d be very curious to see what sort of information “Xu Yu” sent to verify his identity. I guess I’ll have to pull up the complaint…
