    LOL, check this out - it was in my mail today.

    The FBI was kind enough to write me and explain that my transaction with the Central Bank of Nigeria didn't go through because it was a scam. Don't worry though - I can still get my money (all 1.5 million USD of it), all I have to do is pay a small $260 fee.

    I really wish someone would teach them English!
    then a basic IQ buildup from there.
    I mean come on first paragraph it says that you are taking part in illegal activities - second paragraph says the reason they are not working is because you have not help up your end of the bargain and the FBI want to help you do this...................

    I wonder - that all these scams are aimed at the US and no other nation - is this an IQ indicator for the US? ;)

    They take this pretty seriously too. This e-mail was from none other than the Director of the FBI, I must be really important to get that kind of special attention.

    Maybe they're just trying to save a little cash, they gotta be running low with all the money they keep sending our way.
