  1. I've just recieved the following from a btinternet email address.

    surely doing this from the UK, as a UK citizen/subject is a risky business?

    Forward the email to your local law enforcement. Maybe they'll find it as amusing as we did. BTW, isn't "Business" spelled the same in the U.K. as in the U.S.? :)

    I've actually gotten a hardcopy letter from Nigeria with a similar proposal. Nice postage stamp for my old collection.

    I do believe it is the same, yes :)

    I thinmk I'll froward it to the police as you suggest. Let's see if we can't spoil this jokers day :).

    gullible fools. Anyone who believes garbage like this from one of the most corrupt places on the planet should have their account emptied.

    Eh? It came from the UK. I'm inclined to believe that it's ONE of the most corrupt places on the planet, but were that the case, I'd have to include the USA in the same list (along with much of europe)

    Heh, I'm sure Tedster is referring to Nigeria which is quite infamous for this sort of scam.

    Yes. My comment was intended as quite "tongue in cheek". :p
