"I wish to categorically state that these emails are not from me or my office; they do not represent me or my office; I do not know them; and these scammers have apparently been operating with the sole intention of defrauding the recipients of these emails.

"We have reported the activities of the scammers in question to the security agencies to take appropriate action.

"The scammers operate using the following emails: KISS60KISS@TIM.IT; DAPANJBKOI@LAGOON.OCN.NE.JP; BB@CERES.OCN.NE.JP;  WWW@RONDO.OCN.NE.JP, amongst others."

The Senate President warned the Nigerian public to be cautious and report any of the emails to the appropriate authorities.
