But the Prince of Nigeria already promised me the deed to a turtle-wax factory if I sent him my address, social security number, and a photocopy of my drivers license.
Ha, I wish I got scams. I get nothing but viagra and virus'. (Seriously, every one in five of my emails is a virus...)
The joke is that Saudi Arabia is the one Muslim country that probably would offer such things through gambling.

That country so needs to burn.

The worst one I had, and which I felt sick afterwards, was a alteration of the typical "this guy needs an account to divert his money and you will get a portion" except it wasn't "Nigeria", it was the 2005 London bombings.

I love when they write things like "150,000.00 " just to make it look like more with the two 0s after the decimal. They mind as well just write "150,000.00000000000"
