    Dear Favoredwrites,

    You seem like an honest guy.  I have an urgent need to transfer 7.2 Million £ from the UK to Lagos. Unfortunately I need the sum of $625 to get the cash out of the UK.  Send me your $625 and I will arrange to send you the £7.2 Million £.  Keep 10% for yourself and send the rest to me.  That's a profit for you of around $1M.

    Many thanks for your (anticipated) kindness to me


    PS: Of course this is not a scam or money laundering!

      many variations to this "nigerian scam"  Surprising how many people fall for it.

      A fool and his money are soon parted.

          Why are we not able to flag junk like this. And we wonder why Google looks at us with a jaundiced eye sometimes. This surely would be one of those times.

          Thumbs down, let in the lions.
