I've Got Money In Nigeria ...

You know that I get a giggle out of scrolling through my spam every now and then, and I've just received a lovely helpful email from 26 year old Marian Green in Nigeria.  She's thrilled to inform me that I'm nearly entitled to some serious dosh (but she can't tell me how much), and the reason that I've not received the cashola yet is that the Nigerian Mafia (which I wouldn't understand, because I'm not Nigerian) aren't going to hand it over.  But she can help me with that!  So kind.

Apart from the obvious upside of being mega-rich after I hand over all of my personal details, she's going to run away from Nigeria to be with me once she's sure the money has come through.  Winning!

 am Miss Marian Green. A computer scientist with C.B.N
I am 26 years old, just started work with C.B.N. I came across your filewhich was marked X and your released d isk painted RED, I took time to study it and found out that you have paid VIRTUALLY all fees and certificate but the fund has not been release to you.
The most annoying thing is that they cannot tell you the truth that on no account will they ever release the fund to you. Please this is like a Mafia setting in Nigeria; you may not understand it because you are not a Nigerian.
The only thing I will need to release this fund is a special HARD DISK we call it HD120 GIG. I will buy two of it, recopy your information, destroy the previous one, and punch the computer to reflect in your bank within 24 banking hours. I will clean up the tracer and destroy your file, after which I will run away from Nigeria to meet  with you.
If you are interested. Do get in touch with me immediately, You should send to me your convenient tell/fax numbers for easy communications and also re confirm your banking details, so that there won't be any mistake.for phone converstion,please call me on +2348115354496.
Miss Marian Green
