Nigerian Spam Letters      Email this entry 

This guy decided to respond to the Nigerian spam he received (you know the stupid "Contact Us and get rich!" emails from Nigeria). He starts a thread with his Nigerian spammer, and his responses are hilarious! Here's an example:

>DR HAMZA KALU, FAX: 234 1 7590371
>ATTN: Jonathan Land,
>REQUEST FOR ASSISTANCE-STRICTLY CONFIDENTIALÝ
>I AM DR HAMZA KALU, THE CO-ORDINATOR OF THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT
>OF NIGERIA CONTRACT REVIEW PANEL OF THE NIGERIAN NATIONAL
>PETROLEUM CORPORATION(NNPC). [...]

Dr. Kalu, I'd be more than happy to help... but I've recently received another offer like this that gave me 30% of the cut of even more money. You bump my share up to 35%, and I'm your man.

Dr. Jonathan Land
