That's great Chris!!

Hey, let me tell you about this great pyramid investment oppurtunity I'm involved with. For every dollar you give me, you will receive $10 dollars in return. It's the most lucrative investment venture out there and I can get you in on the ground floor. But, you have to hurry, the offer won't last long.

But wait there's more! Over 100 million people live in nigeria and each one of them has a lottery prize just waiting for them if only they had the $2000 dollars (U.S.) for the filing fees to free up the money, luckily these are some of the most generous people in the world and they will gladly share their good fortune with you if you could lend them the cash! And if thats not enough, you need not even leave your home to recieve this bounty, just send your bank acct number along with your check (and SS # to insure you and only you get the prize) and they will deposit it for you!!
Congratulations on your good fortune

Uh-oh.  Reply with quote  

Hey, CM, you'd better make sure your relative isn't one of [url=http://www.theaustralian.news.com.au/common/story_page/0,5744,9988337^29677,00.html]these[/url] guys before you start sending cash.

But y'know, you could buy all of us ponies if you want. When you have all that money. For being your loyal followers and all. If you went to Nigeria and they kidnapped you and held you for ransom, we'd come rescue you. Hey! We could pay them in copies of your books! Your sales and royalties go up, they free you and get a laugh, we get our Author Guy back. Everyone wins!

This wasn't the site I was looking for, but it's pretty funny anyway: a collection of correspondences with some of the Nigerian scammers: http://sweetchillisauce.com/nigeria.html
