I get so many e-mails from nice gazillionaire Nigerians who want l'il ole me to help them *cough* invest *cough* their money.

Quote
ATTN:Dear Friend,
 
I humbly wish to seek your assistance in a matter that is very important and needs utmost trust and confidence. I am {Names}, a business consultant and close confidant of one of Nigeria's most powerful family.
 
The wife of top human right activist and former Attorney general who served in the past government in Nigeria wishes to move out of Nigeria the sum of US$15.7million. She wishes to invest the aforementioned sum in viable investment oversea.
 
For obvious reasons, my client does not wish to place this fund with established financial institution in the family's name for security reason.It is her desire that the deal is handled as quietly as possible without possibility of any leakage to the public or Government as they
have suffered a great loss in the past.
 
She has therefore empowered and instructed me to look for a reliable foreigner to clear/claim the money from where it is presently and receive the money in his or her account oversea, Also assist to invest the fund properly for the family as there fund manager.
 
If you agree to clear/claim the money and also act as a fund manager for my client and her family, I shall arrange to release the sum of US$15.7Million to you if you meet my requirement and upon a favourable response from you, i shall let you know how you will receive it.
Your commission shall be 20% of the total sum.
 
 An annual 10% of the after tax returns on investment for the first five years. Therefore, the terms shall be varied.If you are capable and willing to participate in this transaction, kindly reach me as soon as possible You are required to also send your full names,address, direct phone and fax number for more efficient communication.
 
In any case,please keep it a tight secret.
 
I await your prompt reply.
 
 
Best Regards,
 
Mr.{Name}

Bolding mine.

Whoops, the secret is out now.   ::)  Guess I lost that investment.

The FBI.

http://www.ic3.gov/complaint/default.aspx

I went to a presentation by then - yes they want to to file with them. For most of these crimes they need many instances to make a case so every person who reports is one step closer to them being able to stop them.

It's the new spam method.

By default, events that you are invited to get added to your calendar. You can turn off the setting and stop the spam, but in many cases, you may want events added when they are from legit people. I hope that Google will catch on soon and start doing a spam filtering for events just like they do email and voice stuff.

I just spent ten minutes Googling "I shall show you the dance of my people" to try to find an instance of that meme with people wearing black. No success, dangit!  :P

Having had FBI agents visit us several times in the museum, I believe the 'Dance of the FBI' would be somewhere between the Blues Brothers and the Briefcase Drill Team from Pasadena's Hoo-Hah Parade.  I also wouldn't be surprised if a bit of John Cleese's 'Ministry of Silly Walks' made its way into the choreography.

Wouldn't that be wonderful to see?
