Those danged Nigerians ...

Not only do they steal your money in the first place, presuming you're stupid enough to give them your bank account number, now they're offering it all back to you plus a premium to $7million!...presuming that you're stupid enough to give them your bank account number!

Here's an email I got yesterday:


The President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria has directed and ordered that the huge sum of money recovered from some Nigerian fraudsters arrested recently should be returned to their respective foreign-owners with immediate effect. So if you are already a fraud victim through any Nigerian or if you are a foreign contractor and you have executed any contract with any Nigerian and you have not been paid please report via this email.

First Bank Of Nigeria PLC has been mandated to verify all the transactions and re-fund all the money recovered from these fraudsters to their respective owners. All Foreign Affairs Files has been handed over to our Bank for official use.

We cannot determine the actual amount to pay the victims of these frauds because most of the transactions were long in the past and as a result this The Federal Government of Nigeria and The Central Bank of Nigeria has approved the payment of US$7M (US$7,000,000)SEVEN MILLION US DOLLARS as compensation to all published beneficiaries.

Your email-address is among the enlisted beneficiaries published for proper verification and immediate payment.
