This one has been going around on e mail for about 20 years. Usually it is an American oil executive who gets killed in an auto accident in Nigeria and leaves 40 million estate with no identifiable heir. He has the same last name as the recipient and you are ask to call an attorney in London. Of course, you will then be asked to put up "good faith" money, whatever that means. Also, as tax season approaches, beware the scam in which you receive a phone call from the "IRS", telling you that you will be in court in a week if you don't settle your "tax debt" (cash only). Note---the IRS DOES NOT CALL anyone---snail mail only. Besides the foreign accents, the other tip off is that they ask you to go to your bank and get "vouchers", which I assume is some third world term for bank check.

These scams sound so stupid it's hard to believe anyone would fall prey to them, but the scammers make millions every year.

Jimbo, did you alert Admin to the PM so they can block his IP address?
