Nigeria-Connection #2
Und schon wieder werden mir Millionen angeboten :-) Also beim nächsten Angebot schlage ich zu.


I am Barrister PRINCE IGE(SAN) Barrister and solicitor
at law. I am the personal attorney to Mr.Russ B.C who
was working with Shell Petroleum Development Company (SPDC)
here in Nigeria,as Director,Operation until his death.

On Friday the 21st of April 2002, precisely 3:22PM Nigerian
time, my client, his wife and their three children were
involved in a ghastly auto accident along Sagbama Express
Road in River State, South-South Nigeria, and
unfortunately, all occupants of the vehicle lost their
lives.Since then I have made several enquiries to your
embassy to locate any of his extended relatives, this has
also proved unsuccessful.

Please reply me through this email address

But I was presented by the Chamber of Commerce enquiry
department names that mactches that of my client in order
to locate any member of his family or any close name to
his, hence I contacted you first. I am contacting you to
assist in claiming the money and property left behind by my
client before they get confiscated or declared.

unserviceable by the bank where this huge depositswere
lodged,particularly the CITY TRUST BANK where the deceased
have his account valued at about US$11.5million dollars
deposited days before his untimely,death. The bank has
issued me a notice to provide the next of kin or have the
account confiscated within the next twenty one (21)
working days.

Please reply me through this email address

Since I have been unsuccesfull in locating the the
relatives for over 2 years now,I seek your consent to
present you as the next of kin of the deceased so that the
proceeds of this account valued at US$11.5 million dollars
can be paid to you and then you and I can share the money
according to any agreed ratio. Note that I have all the
necessary legal documents that can be used to back up any
claim we may make and also his last testament of WILL,
which is still under my posssion and which we will amend to
make you elgible to claim the fund.

Please reply me through this email address

All I require is your honest co-operation to enable us see
this deal through.I guarantee you that this will be
executed under legitimate arrangement that will protect you
from any breach of the law. Note, your accptance mail
should be sent strictly to my private/confidential email
address of Brrister Paul Martins to enable us discuss

Please reply me through this email address

Best Regards,
Barrister prince ige(SAN).

Nigeria-Connection / spam
Okay, für Freunde des gepflegten Spams hier ein mustergültiges und mailboxfrisches Beispiel, leider nur in Englisch :-) Ich frage mich gerade, ob ich ein paar Prozent von den angebotenen US-$ 66 Mio. annehmen sollte, wo doch der Dollarkurs gerade so schlecht steht und die USA auf meiner Liste der beliebten Länder abgeschlagen auf dem letzten Platz stehen.

The lovely spam below just popped into my mailbox, I wonder whether I should accept their proposal and help launder some dirty money, thereby earning some almost worthless U$-dollars which I would have to spend in the most f*cked-up country possible :-)

Dear Sir/Madam,

I am Princess Chioma , daughter of HRH King
Solomon Abonime, the king of Ogoni Kingdom. I am 25
years old and a graduate of Mass Communication. My
father was the king of Ogoni Kingdom the highest oil
producing area in Nigeria. He was in charge of
reviving royalties from the multi-national oil
companies and government on behalf of the oil
producing communities in Nigeria. After the hanging of
the Ogoni Nine(9) including Ken Saro Wiwa by the late
dictator General Sani Abacha, my father suffered
stroke and died in August27th last year. But before
his death, he called me and told me he has sixthy six
Million United States Dollars
(USD66,000,000.00) cash in his possession, specially
deposited in a Security vault company in euroupe. He
advised me not to tell anybody except my mother who is
the last wife of the (8) eight wives that he married.

My mother did not bear any male child for him. Which
implies that all my father's properties, companies
e.t.c., we have no share in them because my mother has
no male child according to African Tradition. My
father therefore secretly gave me all the relevant
documents of the said money, and told me that I should
use this money with my mother and my younger sisters
because he knows that tradtionally, if he dies we
cannnot get anything, as inheritance. He importantly
advised me that I should seek foreign assistannce and
that I should not invest this money here in Nigeria
because of his other wives and male children who
happen to be my elders. I am soliciting for your
immediate assistance to get a Bungalow for us, where I
will live with my mother and two younger sisters and
further advise me where and how I will invest the
balance money overseas, possibly on products of your
company and other profitable ventures. I believe that
by the special grace of God, you will help us move
this money out of eroupe to your country where we can
invest this money judiciously with you. You are
entitled to a reasonable part of this money based on
our agreement, and God will bless you as you help us.

PLease reply through my e-mail Looking forward to hear
from you as soon as possibleand also my lawyer email
address: ( ) OR
Best Regards.Princess Chioma

Pls contact me With above Email address as soon as you
get intouch with my lawyer Thanks.

Konferenz / conference
Momentan läuft die 'Intelligent Vehicles & Road Infrastructure Conference' an der University of Melbourne, zu welcher Professor Kruse als Keynote Speaker eingeladen wurde. Heute hat er in einem kleineren Vortrag an der Fakultät schonmal seine Präsentation gehalten, bevor er morgen früh dann bei der Konferenz dran ist. Der Vortrag war klasse, vor allem hatte ich das meiste von und bei ihm schonmal in der Vorlesung gehört, von daher war es gut verständlich. Die Unterschrift für meine Studienarbeit hab ich mir auch noch geben lassen, also sowas nenne ich eine 'gute Betreuungssituation' an der Otto-von-Guericke-Universität, da kann ich mich gar nicht beschweren.

Currently the University of Melbourne is hosting the 'Intelligent Vehicles & Road Infrastructure Conference' which Professor Kruse has been invited to as tomorrow morning's keynote addressor. Today he gave his talk in a quite familiar environment at the Faculty of Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering; his presentation was excellent: high-level but nevertheless understandable. This could have been caused by having heard about the particular subject in a lecture held by him :-) Along the way I had my report application form signed and am now officially writing the internship report; and I definitely can not complain about the well-known 'lack of supervision and care' at German universities in general with a 'personal professor' like him ;-)
Valentinstag oder so / Valentine's day
Noch so ein bekloppter Tag, der in den letzten Jahren zum Konsumfest hochstilisiert wurde. Sollte man nicht seine Liebsten tagtäglich mit irgendetwas beglücken? Warum muß man dazu genau den Valentinstag benutzen? Das ist fast so wie nur zu Weihnachten, Ostern und Pfingsten in die Kirche zu gehen und damit sein Gewissen reinzuwaschen...
Dafür hier ne lustige Seite mit passenden Valentinstag-Grußkarten:

IMO this stupid day has been vigorously pushed forward by the flower-and-jewellery-selling-industry over the last decade. Why? Shouldn't we try to cajole our closest friends every day instead of giving them the full scintillating and waste-prone, extensively wrapped [sh*t]load on one day, paying heaps of money for stuff that you otherwise wouldn't buy at all? It's like [ab]using christmas, easter and whitsun celebrations to go to church then and have your conscience cleared. See above link for anti-VD greeting cards.
Klischees / stereotypes
Das wohl am besten bekannte Merkmal von Deutschland sind die Autobahnen, auf denen man nach landläufiger Meinung wohl überall unbegrenzt schnell fahren darf und kann. Wie sich sowas verbreitet, kann dem folgenden Ausschnitt aus einem Wochenend-Wurstblatt entnommen werden, "getestet" wurde der Smart forfour und natürlich fährt man in Deutschland ständig und überall mit ungefähr 150km/h herum :-)

The most wide-spread stereotype about Germany is definitely the one regarding its motorhighways having no speed limit. It seems to be hammered into people surreptitiously by materialising in innocent subclauses among testdrive reports, the one above being about the Smart forfour car.
