Letter from Lagos


John H sent the following email to me at peter (at) mytypohumour (dotcom)

Apparently I have a big payout waiting for me. And before I send off my PIN, card details, and the birth certificate of my first born, here are some highlights from an email I had from a very nice Nigerian lady who, although she appears to be a humble cleaner, is charged with distributing the wealth.

SUBJECT Attn: Beneficiary, Your $1.5 Million Dollars Compensation

Attn: Beneficiary,

I am Mrs. Farida Waziri the charlady of ECONOMIC & FINANCIAL CRIME COMMISSION (EFCC).EFCC in alliance with economic community of West African states (ECOWAS)with the head office here in Nigeria. We have been working towards the eradication of fraudsters and scam artists in western part of Africa with the help of the United States government and the united Nation.

We have been able to recover so much money from these scam artists. The United Nation Anti-Crime commission and the united state Government has ordered the money recovered from the scammers to be shared among 100 lucky people around the global.

Best Regard, 
Mrs. Farida Waziri

Wait. She's been promoted. Far the char becomes Farida the leader. (And undergone a sex change.)

Note: that if no seriousness is seen in you. We have no choice to other than to cancel your fund. We have no time to waste in this transaction any more.

And it will only cost me £250.
