Yesterday we received an email from Lawyer Neil Christiansen stating that Engr, Robert Adler had mentioned us in his will.  Neither of us never heard of the man, so delete.

This one's a little different, although still vastly amusing:

Hi,
I am Mr.[redacted] , Head of Luggage/Baggage storage facilities here at the Hartsfield-Jackson A t l
a n t a I n t er n a t i o n a l Airport U S A.

I am contacting you regarding to an abandoned consignment boxes in our storage facility and which the custom scan report of the boxes revealed an undisclosed sum of US dollar bill in it which could be approximately 3-4M dollars and the details of the consignment including your name are tagged on the Two Metal Trunk boxes.

The consignment boxes were abandoned here by a Diplomat from UK due to his inability to pay the required fee $2,300 for the Non-Inspection Fee which i am ready to pay it But I will require you give me 30% of the Fund once i deliever it and you take 70% before we proceed, Get Back if you are ready . Mr.[redacted] INSPECTION OFFICER At least this one is a clear-cut offer of "I am a crook, and I hope you are too". Soooo, the boxes contain$X mil in cash but the owner of the boxes somehow couldn't come up with $2300? Logic fail. Should have gone with$X mil worth of diamonds/bonds/other non-cash valuables that Scammer would have happily converted to cash for your 70% cut.

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.

Best Regards,

Mr.{Name}

Bolding mine.

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

The FBI.

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.
