Nigerian Scams

This message is especially for all you Nigerian scammers out there. I do not have any relatives in Africa. Nobody in my family was ever named Benton, Major, Carlyle, or Grissel. Got that? Besides, if I did lose all those relatives on that same stretch of highway in Nigeria, I would be giving all those millions to a witch doctor to take off the curse.

So far now on I will be posting every scam letter that reaches my yahoo mail. Got that? Good. So here’s the latest.

    I find this e-mail highly amusing. Assuming that this was sent by a “real” person and not an automated system, I probably would have replied to the message only to antagonize the sender with meaningless, frustrating questions in purposely bad English.
