    It's funny, I found a post/article quite a few years ago where someone acted as if they were interested in one of these scams. Had to be one of the funniest things I've read in a while. I'll see if I can't find it somewhere though it's been a few years.

    Maybe we should all pool our resources

    Personally, I'm thinking maybe we start an American version of this, with which we can start spamming our opportunistic friends in Nigeria and Ghana.

    'Dear friend,
    I was recently digging in my New Jersey backyard to replace my olympic-sized hot tub drain, when I found a oaken vessel bearing a letter from one of our founding fathers. Apparently, in return for supporting us during the great struggle of the American Revolution, our forebears promised Nigeria 0.5% of all future national revenues. My research shows that YOU are due a percentage of these funds, current value of which is in excess of $80 bazillion gazillion US dollars. US law requires that we return these funds to their rightful owners. Therefore, if you would simply provide me with a modest administrative fee of $3,500, I will with great haste transfer your birthright to your checking account immediately. Unfortunately, your administrative fees must be paid in cash - however, if you will also provide your checking account number and identification #'s, I will quickly make the transfer of your newly-gained wealth.

    Today is your lucky day my friend.

    your humble servant,

    Joe Smith.
    Esquire.

    Sarge--that was supposed to be a private business deal between us--

    Now I'll have to take it up with the 300 million other people that I privately submitted that proposal to.

    This American Life did a story about this a while back. I highly recommend it. Hilarious stuff.
