I wonder if anyone is actually stupid enough to fall for something like this:

First, I must solicit your confidence in this transaction, this is by virtue of its nature as being utterly confidential and top secret. Though I know that a transaction of this magnitude will make any one apprehensive and worried, but I am assuring you that all will be well at the end of the day. We have decided to contact you by e-mail due to the urgency of this transaction.
I am a member of the Federal Government of Nigeria Contract Award and Monitoring Committee in the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporatio(NNPC). Sometime ago, a contract was awarded to a foreign firm in NNPC by my Committee. This contract was over invoiced to the tune of US$21.5M. U.S. Dollars. This was done deliberately. The over-invoicing was a deal by my committee to benefit from the project. We now want to transfer this money which is in a suspense Account with NNPC into any Overseas Account which we expect you to provide for us.
For assisting us in this deal, you will be entitled to 30% of the money,60% will be for me and my partners
while 10% has been mapped out from the total sum to cover any expenses that maybe incurred by us during
the course of this transfer, both locally and international expenses.

I would require-
1. Your Company's Name,Address,Tel.& Fax. Numbers.
2. Your Bank Account Number and Address where the money will be remitted.

The above information would be used to make formal applications as a matter of procedure for the release
of the money. It does not matter whether or not your company does contract projects of this nature described here. The assumption is that your company won the major contract and subcontracted it out to
other companies. More often than not, big trading companies or firms of unrelated fields win major contracts and subcontracts to more specialized firms for execution of such contracts.

We have strong reliable connections and contacts at the Apex Bank(Central Bank of Nigeria), as well as the
Federal Ministry of Finance and we have no doubt that all the money will be released and transferred if we
get the necessary foreign partner to assist us in this deal. Therefore,when the business is successfully concluded we shall through our same connections withdraw all documents used from all the concerned Government Ministries for 100% security. We are ordinary civil servants and we will not want to miss this once in a lifetime opportunity to get rich.

We want this money to be transferred to your nominated bank for us, before the present Democratic Government start Auditing all Federal Government owned Parastatals. Please contact me immediately through my alternative email above whether or not you are interested in this deal. If you are not,it will enable me scout for another foreign partner to carry out this deal. But where you are interested, send the required documents aforementioned herein through my above my alternative email, as time is of the essence in this business.
I wait in anticipation of your fullest co-operation.
I got something similar once - in return I sent them an e-mail composed entirely of Misfits lyrics :D

I've never got something like that, but I think you need a spamfilter or you can do the same as DeviousDVO:tickled:
People that receive these emails usually have an email address that is easy to guess (ie. first initial followed by a somewhat common last name, perhaps with the birth year appended towards the end), or have signed a guestbook (thereby displaying their email address) visited by the scammers to harvest for email addresses to send their spam emails to. I think, in my case, it is the former.

they just want to fuck him over. bring him over to africa hold him hostage and demand ransom from relatives. it happened to an elderly couple once.
Yep. They want to take all your money. They always try to get you to fly to Nigeria or a neighboring country, and that is when they really start sucking all the money out of you.
I got an email like that yesterday. This time, it's some royal Saudi guy with a ton of oil money.
i've got one similar to that before but i just deleted it.

As far as unwanted emails go i get a hell of alot of emails about penis enlargement and viagra.
