    Default Strange e-mail I get

    I'm sure I am not the only person that gets these e-mails but I don't understand them. People from other countries asking to deposit millions of dollars into my bank accounts and I will get a percentage to keep. Thanks to anyone if you have seen these.

    The place where I work gets those emails also. Not sure how they originate but they are just spam. Delete them and go on your merry way

    Ahh, the infamous Nigerian email scam. They actually had an email conference in Nigeria not too long ago because of the litany of these emails making their way around the net.

    We reported on a new version of the email a few months ago: http://www.help2go.com/public/article47.html

    On my last calculations according to all the scam emails Nigeria is now worth 560 trillion dollars.
