Notice the "tests=" line in your report.  In your spamassasin prefs
you can bump up the score for certain tests.  Here's a sample from mine:
score WEB_BUGS                          4.0
score CTYPE_JUST_HTML           5.0
score SUBJ_FULL_OF_8BITS        10.0

Then in my .procmailrc, I test the spam level, and if its high enough,
straight to /dev/null it goes.  Borderline stuff gets routed to a spam

* ^X-Spam-Level:.*\*\*\*\*\*\*\*\*\*\*\*\*\*\*\*\*\*\*

Of course, see 'perldoc Mail::SpamAssassin::Conf'
Also: http://spamassassin.org/tests.html for the list of tests.  I notice
there's a few for 'NIGERIAN_TRANSACTION' so you may be in luck :)
