PLEASE CONFIRM TO US IMMEDIATELY.

It’s been a while since I’ve had a scam email claiming to come directly from the Governor of the Central Bank Of Nigeria.  Clearly this scammer hasn’t realised that telling me his email comes from Nigeria isn’t the best way to get me to believe him.

It’s Sunday and I can’t be bothered to read this scam – but I’ll bet he has millions of dollars for me.  Not.  This scammer is after your money, ignore him.
