I have just discovered a new angle on the infamous Nigerian scam that regularly infests our spam email. This one is telling me that I have been awarded a huge pile of money by both the Nigeria [sic] government and the World Bank to compensate me for past Nigerian scam activities! I have already been sent $10,000 as the first instalment and I have a total of $250,000 waiting for me. Or so they say.
It beggars belief that these sorts of things are still coming out.
On this occasion, I am awarding a dual Popsicle Award:
- to the spammers for thinking I am that stupid to fall for that crap
- to the idiots out there are who are stupid enough and greedy enough to fall for that shit.
