Nigerian astronaut lost in space needs $3m

Nigerian astronaut lost and stranded in space needs $3m to get home – Has Nigeria’s first astronaut REALLY been stranded in orbit on a secret space station for the past 17 Years? The letter or email below is circulating like wildfire on the internet. In case you receive it, please consider it to be a scam because Nigeria is not among the list of space travelers by nationality. and such space station activities are not kept secret.

Furthermore, NASA has no idea of any Nigerian astronaut purportedly lost and stranded in space since 1989. The scammer included a link to Nigeria’s National Space Research and Development Agency (NASRDA) below the message to make it look real.

Nigerians are great people because most of them are very hard working. A Nigerian recently designs a car. But some of them want to make it through the so-called Nigerian-419-fraud. For instance a Nigerian was recently arrested and charged with email scam in Dallas, USA.

Nigerian astronaut allegedly lost in space needs $3m to get home

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,


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) 9-234-22** only.

Yours Sincerely, Dr. Bakare Tunde
Astronautics Project Manager

  • Anonymous says:

    If he is stranded in space, he should start a new life there. No need to come to Boko Haram or foolish Igbo Biafra who hate their fellow Nigerians and want to separate themselves without cogent reasons. LMAO

  • Johnbull says:

    Maybe this particular space launch by the Nigerian astronaut was kept secret due to some reasons. You people should try to donate money to help him out. Remember the fact that this astronaut was ready to risk his life for all of us all over the world.

    Apat from oil, it seems sccam is the second largest exporting product in Nigeria.

  • Guest says:

    Did anyone trace the origin of this astronaut scam message? It is possible that this email did not actually originate from Nigeria. I once met a guy from Cameroon but he had Nigeria passport. It was through discussions with him he revealed to me that he was actually from Cameroon.

    Yesterday night, one astronaut landed on top of our roof. Maybe it was the nigerian astronaut.

    First off I would like to say terrific blog! I had a fast question which I’d like to ask if you do not mind. I was curious to learn how you center yourself and clear the head before writing. I’ve had a hard time clearing my thoughts to get my thoughts out there. I truly do enjoy writing but it really just seems like the very first 10 to 15 minutes are usually lost just figuring out how to begin. Any ideas or tips? Thanks!

  • Sandra says:

    Yes, when is this fraud star returning back to earth. I will like to see him and his brother who is negotiating for him.

  • Mike says:

    I get lots of scam emails from Nigeria and other countries regularly but I just delete them.

  • Funny Guy says:

    The question is how did they plan to send this so-called needed Money to him in space? Or were they going to buy another space Station to travel there and look for him since he was/is lost in space?

The catch is something which too few men and women are speaking intelligently about. I’m very happy I discovered this during my seek out something in regards to this.
