I just got an email in from the:
AFRICAN SECURITY & DEFENCE COUNCIL
NIGERIA INVESTIGATION DEPARTMENT ‘NID’
It seems such things as email based scams are going on. I hadn’t heard of that–I mean I get a ton of requests from African Princes and Heads of States asking for bank transfers or the occasional dying person wishing to wire me $5,000,000.00 USD to donate to charity, but these are all perfectly legit, surely. Surprisingly–according to this bulletin–there were at least two (2) people scammed last year (perhaps a few more!). If you happen to be one of them, the NIGERIA INVESTIGATION DEPARTTMENT (NID) is paying out $5,000,000 USD to you!
Here is the good news:
The Nigeria Investigation Department of the African Security & Defence Council (ASDC) and African Union Financial Commission (AUFC), International Monetary Funds (IMF) including the UNITED NATIONS Body,Held a meeting on 1st of January 2009, at Gariki Abuja Nigeria, and it was on issue of the money lost by various individuals to the scams artists operating all over the world today. In other to compensate victims,the AFRICAN UNION FINANCIAL COMMISSION AND UNITED NATIONS Body is now paying 1000 Scam victims $5,000,000.00 USD each
That is just super kind of them, wouldn’t you say? And to think I had never heard of the NID before today.
