The Nigerian cure for AIDS (Dr Sadiq Harrison)

No desaster is too tragic to be taken advantage of by criminal scammers, as the scams after the Indian Ocean tsunami showed.

The following email promising a cure for AIDS, supposedly by a doctor from India who uses a UK-based email address, was actually sent from an ISP in Nigeria. See also:

Dear Sir,

I am sorry for my delay in reponding to your mail. It
is due to pressue of work.

For your information, my herbal remedy is
standardized and efficacious in the treatment of HIV-AIDS. It contains
anti-retroviral agents specifically to attack HIV 1&11, in addition,clinical 
test have confirmed that it contains proteus inhibitor,as you know what 
proteus inhibitor does is to destroy completely the HIV proteus enzymes 
that causes the growth and spread of the virus.Besides this, the drugs are 
beefed up with other herbal supplements that are highly enriched with 
vitamins;Vit C, Vit A & D,Vit B and Vit E which helps to replenish and 
strenghten the body immune system. All the drugs are produced from  herbs 
and other natural ingredients and without adulteration, as a result it 
does not have any side effects and most importantly non of patients so far 
treated has ever complained of any relapse.

Before I start adminstering drugs on any patients referred to me, it 
is important to have a good look at the patients medical record to 
determine whether it is type 1 or 11, as each of the drugs has
a specific strenght of viral load it can carry, that is one unique thing
about the drugs.

I have an agent in Netherlands and South Africa that is solely in
charge of distribution of the drugs in Europe and it's environs. If you wish
to purchase the medicine and adminster it on the patients yourself on a
recommended dose, I will instrust the agent to give it to you at a 10%
discount. However, if you still want to refer patient(s) to me for treatment
you are welcome.
Having made this explanation, if you have any patient(s)lined up for 
me please let me know so that we can put heads together to work out a 
suitable modality.
I look forward to hearing from you.

Dr S Harrison
