Subject: Nigerian Astronaut Wants To Come Home
Dr. Bakare Tunde
Astronautics Project Manager
National Space Research and Development Agency (NASRDA)
Plot 555
Misau Street
PMB 437
Garki, Abuja, FCT NIGERIA

Dear Mr. Sir,

REQUEST FOR ASSISTANCE-STRICTLY CONFIDENTIAL

I am Dr. Bakare Tunde, the cousin of Nigerian Astronaut, Air Force Major Abacha Tunde. He was the first African in space when he made a secret flight to the Salyut 6 space station in 1979. He was on a later Soviet spaceflight, Soyuz T-16Z to the secret Soviet military space station Salyut 8T in 1989. He was stranded there in 1990 when the Soviet Union was dissolved. His other Soviet crew members returned to earth on the Soyuz T-16Z, but his place was taken up by return cargo. There have been occasional Progrez supply flights to keep him going since that time. He is in good humor, but wants to come home.

In the 14-years since he has been on the station, he has accumulated flight pay and interest amounting to almost $ 15,000,000 American Dollars. This is held in a trust at the Lagos National Savings and Trust Association. If we can obtain access to this money, we can place a down payment with the Russian Space Authorities for a Soyuz return flight to bring him back to Earth. I am told this will cost $ 3,000,000 American Dollars. In order to access the his trust fund we need your assistance.

Consequently, my colleagues and I are willing to transfer the total amount to your account or subsequent disbursement, since we as civil servants are prohibited by the Code of Conduct Bureau (Civil Service Laws) from opening and/ or operating foreign accounts in our names.

Needless to say, the trust reposed on you at this juncture is enormous. In return, we have agreed to offer you 20 percent of the transferred sum, while 10 percent shall be set aside for incidental expenses (internal and external) between the parties in the course of the transaction. You will be mandated to remit the balance 70 percent to other accounts in due course.

Kindly expedite action as we are behind schedule to enable us include downpayment in this financial quarter.

Please acknowledge the receipt of this message via my direct number 234 (0) 9-234-XXXX only.

Yours Sincerely, Dr. Bakare Tunde
Astronautics Project Manager

Popping the "Major" into google shows stuff about it that goes back to 2011. It looks like there aren't any news services that DIDN'T do a story because it was so dang silly.

Good luck, I hope you get rich off the poor stranded bastard.

It's appeared on Eater a few times, including in Feb 2016 (around the time of the article you are linking to).

Danger, Will Robinson, danger.

Since the last time the script has made its rounds the price of the Tunde sticker has been reduced by 25%.

It would be interesting how many Lost in Space references a baiter could incorporate into his/her exchanges.

I didnt obscure the details - the article I got it from did. How I would love to bait one of these though!

A Lost In Space massbait would be hillarious. We could have a whole team involved, complete with a rescue attempt.... bwahaha

They didn't even bother updating the years LOL
Stranded in 1990, fourteen years later is 2004..
As it's now 2019, he's been up there 29 years now...

(assuming he was in his mid 20's when he went up, he is now 54 years old LOL)
