2.) SCAM SENT 11/02/12 – NIGERIAN 419 SCAM – MONEY TRANSACTION – FRAUD
FROM: Derick Ahmed email@example.com RETURN-ADDRESS: firstname.lastname@example.org
EMAIL: Greetings Sir,
Our company (VETCO) requires urgently a dietary chemical material which are produced and sold in your country. This Material is used in the production of dietary supplement, vaccines and injections for sub Saharan Horses and pets. My director will be sending our procurement officer to Your country to purchase the chemical material and am requesting you to stand as a supplier so that i can give you the contact of the local Vendor for you to procure the material from him and sell to my CEO at a very lucrative price. It will interest you to know that our director does not have the direct contact of the local producer due to some managerial changes in our company. l was opportune to discover this contact from the last airway bill used by our last procurement officer who just died. Previously our deceased officer has been inflating the supply to the tune of $27,000.
But i discovered from the receipt that the local dealer is selling the material for $11,750 per 5 liter gallon and you will supply to my CEO at $23,500 per gallon , that is the more reason our Director will like to buy from you and my company will require more than 100 gallons.My CEO will advance you payment as soon as he can confirm the availability of the Material.
l will give you more details when i hear from you confirming your interest.
Pls reply here: email@example.com with your details as:
1. Full name/address
2. Your occupation/ position
3. Your cell/mobile phone number
4. Your marital.
With best wishes,

We are not sure of the area we would be visiting since we don’t have a nanny to take good care of her. Which part do you live (City & State)? Your decision will determine where we would be staying in your location, let us know if you can take care of her in your home.
