I just got the following Email that I wanted to share with you all.
REQUEST FOR URGENT /CONFIDENTIAL BUSINESSRELATIONSHIP.
I am the Financial Controller, National Electric Power Authority (NEPA) here in Lagos, Nigeria. I am seeking for assistance of a reliable foreigner through whom I can transfer the sum of US$38,600.00(Thirty-Eight Million, Six Hundred Thousand U. S. Dollars) which arose from the deliberate over-inflated contract value of the general expansion of the Kanji Dam Thermal Station on behalf of National Electric Power Authority (NEPA) for increased energy generation to Nigeria and some other Western African Countries.
The present government of chief Olusegun Obasanjo through the chairman contract award committee National Electric Power Authority awarded the contract to an expatriate firm with the consideration of 10% commission agreement on the total contract value. The contract has been completed and the contractor has long been paid, we are left with this US$38,600,000.00 being our own share that is remaining in the federal government account. The current favorable political / economic climate in the country now presented an opportunity for this money to be transferred out of the country. My contact in the federal ministry of finance have given me a go ahead advice to begin the process of the remittance, hence I have set in motion the machinery for the take off of this transaction and further actions will commence immediately I hear from you.
At the conclusion of the transfer into your nominated account, 20% of this sum would be for you, 5% would be used to reimburse all expenses made during the processing of the transfer by both parties, while 75% is for me. The nature of your business is not particular relevant for the transaction. All I require is your willingness to co-operate and assurance that my own share will be given to me when this money is transferred into your account. All necessary precautions have been taken to ensure a no risk situation on the sides of both parties and it is believed that this conclusion of this transaction will not last more than 14 working days.
Since I have no knowledge of business, my plan is to invest this money into real estate, stock and I can also invest in some other profitable business in your country based on your advice because many of my years has been spent as civil servant, and I may likely resign from government service to private business after this money is transferred into your account. Please if this proposal is acceptable to you, or if you have any questions feel free to contact me on the above e-mail address, I will oblige you with further information and please I need your private telephone/fax numbers, for easy and confidential communication.

What do you think? Are these guys getting more inventive or what?
Why my goodness, Bill...we're looking at the next multi-millionaire!! How fortunate you are indeed .
I wish I had a dime for every piece of CRAP (putting it very mildly) like this which I receive, virtually, every day . Yours is rather unusual in two respects - Apparently no one died in order for you to receive this "remarkable" offer, and it doesn't seem to be related in some manner to nigerian oil.
I guess even crooks can tire of using the same old MO day after day...
A word to the wise...as a general rule I never even open any of this garbage, for fear that one may contain a virus.
