From: Mr.kuma Adams <>

This email with the subject "SEEKING YOUR PARTNERSHIP ASSISTANCE" was received in one of Scamdex's honeypot email accounts on Sun, 11 Dec 2005 04:11:20 -0800 and has been classified as a Advance Fee Fraud/419 Scam.

The sender was Mr.kuma Adams <>, although it may have been spoofed.


I am interested in your partnership in a business transaction. This business
proposal I wish to intimate you of will be of mutual benefit to the both of
us and it?s success is entirely based on mutual trust, cooperation and a
high level of confidentiality.

I am representing the board of the contract award and monitoring committe of
the Zambian Ministry of Mining and Resources. I am seeking your assistance
to enable me transfer the sum of US$30,500,000.00 (Thirty Million, Five
Hundred Thousand United States Dollars) into your private/company account.

The fund came up as a result of a contract awarded and executed for and on
behalf of my Ministry. The contract was supposed to be awarded to two
foreign contractors to the tune of US$180,000,000.00 (One hundred and Eighty
Million United States Dollars). But in the course of negotiation, the
contract was awarded to a Bulgarian contractor at the cost of
US$149,500,000.00 (One hundred and Forty-nine Million, Five Hundred Thousand
United States Dollars) to our advantage unknown to the contractor. This
contract has been satisfactorily executed and inspected as the Bulgarian
firm is presently securing payment from my Ministry, where our Board is
in-charge of all foreign contract payment approval.

As a civil servant still in active government service, I am forbidden by law
to operate an account outside the shores of Zambia. Hence this message to
you seeking your assistance so as to enable me present your private/company
account details as a beneficiary of contractual claims alongside that of the
Bulgarian contractor, to enable me transfer the difference of
US$30,500,000.00 (Thirty Million, Five Hundred Thousand United States
Dollars) into your provided account.

On actualisation, the fund will be disbursed as stated below.

1. 20% of the fund will be for you as beneficiary

2. 80% of the fund will be for Us.

All logistics are in place and all modalities worked out for a smooth
actualisation of the transaction within the next few working days of
commencement. For further details as to the workability of this transaction,
please reach me as soon as possible for further clarification. Please, 
 mail my
Thank you and God bless as I await your urgent response.

Yours Sincerely,
Kuma  Adams
