    Cha-ching! I got this today. The riches I deserve at last are mine!

    I can't wait to collect my half million bucks, oh boy.

    What's in your inbox?

    What if I was not idiot/greedy enough to fall victim to such a scheme? Can I still contact Nigeria and provide them with all my personal details for them to deposit this money to my bank of choice if it means it will make the world a better place?

    Thank the heavens for people [strike]in Nigeria[/strike] the world over wanting to make this world a better place.

    That's the line that got me, Seej. *sniff* I know that if I take advantage of this offer, I'll be giving away the whole half mil and then some.
    Another 2.5 million, coming my way! This day keeps getting better and better. FBI Director Mueller spelled his name wrong (miguel.williams) in his email address, but I'll ignore that because money!

    Oh man! I wonder if it's my prince in Nigeria that's going to be compensating you?! If it is, can you send him my information too? I don't seem to have gotten my email telling me that I'm entitled to half a million US dollars. I'm sure it's on the way, though.

    Now that is the kind of spelling and grammar we expect to see in an official notice from the FBI. Wow TuckTuck, how lucky can one guy be? You are now three million doll-hairs richer in one day... Marry me? :)

    So was the little (^_^) face in the original e-mail or did you add that in there? Cause I really like the idea that the scammers think that people think the FBI is dropping smileys and internet speak in memos.

    Haha, when I find that one out, I'll let you know.

    Don't take this the wrong way, Idibok, but suddenly I can think of about a million and a half reasons not to! [​IMG]

    I got a phishing phone call yesterday. They called to say that my bank account had been frozen for security issues. I needed to give them my card number and PIN to fix it.

    Oh wow. Now that is service going the extra mile! You didn't even have to go through the inconvenience of going to the bank in person or anything?

    Seriously though, I am dying to know what your response was. Pray tell! :nod:

    Take it from a Nigerian in the house. Run, with your legs touching your back.
