Never mind scams, this letter got me excited today not least because of the personal greeting..

"Dear SirMa"

and the first line

"This letter will definitely be amazing to you because of its realistic value."

Too right it is. I'd already scanned it quickly and was aware of the figure of 25 million dollars mentioned later. And it was from an Hon. Not a Right Hon. admittedly but at least from someone trustworthy. Curiously, he spelled his name differently throughout the letter but that may be a cultural thing specific to parts of Lagos.

"Here in this office, we have a lot of listed victims to be settled."

Well, I didn't want to hold up his victim settling so I replied straight away with the usual banking stuff and replies to his many questions such as the colour of my first car and name of my first pet - so lovely of such a high-ranking man to show such a personal interest.

When the money comes through, I might pop over to Lagos to say thank you - its supposed to be lovely this time of year.

What amuses me about the scam e-mails from the various banks is that I have only ever had one or two from my High St bank but loads from all the other banks and Building Societies.

Don't follow any of the links in any of the scam mails you receive. I'm speculating but I suspect that some of the scams are made to look so amateurish that you feel you just *have* to click that link for another laugh. Sadly the final laugh will be the scammer's, since clicking that link could send you to a malicious website that fills your browser/system with malware...
