    FBI director verifies Nigeria has money for me

    Here, for your amazement and amusement, is an email I got today. I am withholding the sender's name but it came from Yahoo.com. The gist of the message is that the FBI director has verified that the Central Bank of Nigeria is holding $5,500,000 for me. All I need to do is contact the Bank and the money is mine. Woo-hoo!

    However, the bad grammar, sloppy punctuation, sloppy spacing, bizarre capitalizations and peculiarly worded phrases lead me to believe that this letter may not be legitimate. Please tell me nobody on earth is dumb enough to fall for such a ridiculous scam.

    One of the funniest things about the letter is that the head of the FBI would use AOL instead of the government's computer system. The FBI should find out who is using that e-mail address and arrest him for fraud.
