    Todays bit of humour which dropped into my junk box

    Dear Friend ,
    How are you today? Hope all is well with you and your family? I hope this mail meets you in a perfect condition. You may not understand why this mail came to you. But if you do not remember me, you might have received an email from me in the past regarding a multi-million-dollar business proposal which we never concluded.
    I am using this opportunity to inform you that the multi-million-dollar business has been concluded with another person who financed it to a logical conclusion. I thank you for you're great effort to our unfinished transfer of fund into your account due to one reason or the other best known to you.But I want to inform you that I have successfully transferred the fund out of the bank to my new partner's account in London that was capable of assisting me in this great venture.
    Due to your effort, sincerity, courage and trustworthiness you showed during the course of the transaction I want to compensate you and show my gratitude to you with the sum of $850,000.00. I have left an international certified bank draft for you worth $850,000.00 cashable anywhere in the world.
    My dear friend I will like you to contact my secretary: Mr. CHIKA ATELI, for the collection of this international certified bank draft. I have authorized him to release the international certified bank draft to you as soon as you contact him regarding this issue.
    At the moment, I am very busy here because of the investment projects which myself and the new partner are having at hand. Please I will like you to acceptthis token with good faith as this is from the bottom of my heart. Also comply with MR. CHIKA ATELI so that he will send the draft to you without any delay,

    Says he's from Nigeria... Email is from Hong Kong. [yahoo.com.hk]

    I'm loving the "But if you do not remember me, you might have received an email from me in the past regarding a multi-million-dollar business proposal which we never concluded."

    Actually, that's the point.

    They have a higher success rate from repliers if it's blatantly obvious it's a scam.

    Have you seen the pictures from the guys who scam them back and get them to do all sorts of things, tattoos, holding up signs with profanities, there was one i saw in bizarre magazine who managed to get them to send him a carved wooden commodore 64

    Ah, yes. 419eaters I used to do a bit of it myself, though never to that degree.. Although I do know there are a lot of scammers tattooed with 'Church of Barney' on them now..
    His story was that he was a priest who could only hand over his money to those of his religion, thus, they'd have to do silly things (including get the tattoo) to become initiated. Plausible and hilarious.

    There were even a few counter-scammers, those skilled enough to extract money from the scammer, though they were generally less-boasting about it, since it's still morally dubious.
