    I always liked how they use yahoo or hotmail accounts for the email addresses. I would think that if they are the chairperson or representative of a place that is actually giving away 150 mil sterling, they could at least have a better email address...

    What's worse is that somewhere, someone will fall for this, regardless of how obviously fraudulent it is.

    Poor suckers.

    Oh yeah, well MY family has inherited the fortunes of about 14 dead nigerian royals, each of whom died in a horrific car crash or something similar (weird, eh?). And all we had to do was give them all of our bank account info. You could tell they were obviously distraught over each of these deaths because there were terrible typos in each letter. But man, you can tell they are eager to give us that money...they've faxed all the letters straight to us. What should I buy when all my money comes in?
