New Syracuse Stadium Developer Revealed!

New, 1 comment
So as we've learned today, according to the muckrackers-in-training at the Daily Orange, SU Athletics Director (Overlord) DOCTOR Daryl Gross said that "recently a private developer approached the University and expressed interest in conducting a feasibility study related to an idea they had for a new privately-financed athletic stadium."

We were alarmed and intrigued that this "private developer" was not to be named in any press and their location, financiers and executives remained equally elusive. We here at TNIAAM are proud to say that we've done some investigatory journalism of our own and discovered exactly who this "corporation" is and where exactly the funds for a new stadium are coming from.


This was the email that DOCTOR Gross received yesterday:
ATTN:
Dear Sir/M,
I am Mr.Mbeki Salingo. an Auditor of a BANK OF THE NORTH
INTERNATIONAL,ABUJA
(FCT). I have the courage to Crave indulgence for
this important business
believing that you will never let me down
either now or in the future. Some
years ago, an American Stadium
consultant/ contractor with the Nigeria National
American Football Corporation,
made a numbered time (fixed)deposit for twelve calendar
months, valued
$12M.USD (TWELVE MILLION US DOLLARS) in an account. On maturity,
The
bank sent a routine notification to his forwarding address but got no
reply.
After a month, The bank sent another reminder and finally his
contract
employers, the Nigerian National American Football Corporation wrote
to inform the bank
that he died without MAKING A WILL, and all attempts
by the American Embassy to
trace his next of kin was fruitless. I
therefore, made further investigation and
discovered that the
beneficiary was an immigrant from Jamaica and only recently
obtained
American citizenship. He did not declare any kin or relations in all
his official documents, including his Bank deposit paper work. This
money total
amount$12M.USD ( TWELVE MILLION US DOLLARS)is still sitting
in my bank as
dormant Account. No one will ever come forward to claim
it, and according to
Nigerian Banking policy, after some years, the
money will revert to the
ownership of the Nigerian Government if the
account owner is certified dead and the money is not used to
build new american football stadium. This
is the situation, and my proposal
is that I am looking for a foreigner who will
stand in as the next of
kin to beneficiary, and OPEN a Bank Account abroad to
facilitate the
transfer of this money. This is simple, all you have to do is to
OPEN
an account anywhere in the world and send me its detail for me to
arrange
the proper money transfer paperwork, and facilitate the
transfer.The money will
then be paid into this Account for us to share
in the ratio of 60% for me, 35 %
for you and 5% for expenses that might
come up during transfer process. There is
no risk at all, and all the
paper work for this transaction will be done by me
using my position
and connections in the banks in Nigeria. This business
transaction is
guaranteed and you can begin building your stadium
in no time at all.And the first phase of the transfer will be ($4M.USD)
FOUR
MILLION DOLLARS as advised by our insider in the bank.If you are
interested, please reply immediately through my personal email sending
the
following details: (1) Your Full Name/Address (2) Your Private
Telephone/fax Number (3) Your Bank Account Number (for safety reasons).
Please observe the utmost confidentiality, and be
rest assured that this
transaction would be most profitable for both of
us because I shall require your
assistance to invest some of my share
in your football stadium. I look forward to your
earliest reply.
Yours,
Mr.Mbeki
Salingo
Strangley, this email also found its way to my spam folder. Perhaps an inside spy, hoping to generate some buzz for the project. Anyway, DOCTOR Gross, you'd be a fool not to jump on Mbeki's proposal. Free money, man! We could build the stadium, erect statues for Ernie Davis, Jim Brown, Floyd Little, Larry Csonka and Joe Morris and still have enough left over for a mixer with the Tri-Delts.
