Dr. Abdul Kadiri is at it again. Despite that fact that most people in this world know about his scam, his letter still circulates. I got it again today. Always a fun read, especially the spelling errors and curious mishmash of the English language (Modalities have been worked out to the highest level???).
Luckily, the good Doctor has given us his Amsterdamn fax number and his email address (firstname.lastname@example.org), so I'm sure this is all on the up and up. Yeah, right. Enjoy, but don't be a sucker.
