lamarca BS: the BEST!!! Nigerian scam letter yet! (291* d) RE: BS: the BEST!!! Nigerian scam letter yet! 30 Oct 02


Well, nanny, nanny boo-boo - MY latest letter came from a jinuwine PRINCE! I've been having great fun passing these letters on to a Detective in the NIH Police, who's making a collection of Nigerian scam letters sent to NIH email addresses and passing them along to someone in the FBI (where he thinks they go into a circular file...) The detective told me about one elderly woman who gave these creeps $85,000, and didn't want any help from the Feds -she said she expected to get her share of the money any day...Our detective said he was sorely tempted to email the senders back a particularly nasty computer virus...
