The following is an actual FAX received recently at Roadracing World headquarters, reproduced verbatim and without any (sic) references because using (sic) references would increase the length of the FAX by 10 or 20 percent:
Good day to you, how do you do?
In fact, I have been trying to get your address since long ago, to enable me confirm real information from you. And again to beg you for your candid assistance.
Sir, I am a escort rider/mechanic trained by Nigeria Police Force before I change my service to Nigeria Customs Service where I am still serving as a escort rider to the Comptroller General of Nigeria Customs Service, and I am very interesting to join any of the international racing team for any type of international competition.
And I don't know anybody, I am from a poor family, because even when I got admission to America Motorcycle Institute Inc. at Daytona Beach, Florida and sent me form 1-20 and yellow paper for 20 weeks resident, Honda motorcycle mechanical training and my department said, they will not sponsor me, because I will not come back to serve them again, and hence I cannot afford it financially.
I am begging for your assistance or with any racing team to invite me to any training center in USA to release my dreams under your sponsorship an agreement as a private trainee.
And please, I want you to send me Roadracing World magazine through DHL Express.
I will be very grateful if my letter is considered and approve.
Thanks you, yours faithfully,
Nigeria Customs Service
Headquarters Zone 3
