Another kind offer from a generous Nigerian gentleman

It seems like getting strange e-mails from people you don’t know is like waiting for a bus. You wait ages for one, then suddenly two come along in quick succession. Got an e-mail today from Professor Charles C Soludo, Executive Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria

Apparently he does exist though, as a quick Google search reveals. but whether he was the genuine author is another issue. And apparently he’s been quite busy with his offers to give people large sums of money as attested by this blogger.

So here's what he said to me:

For "Anti-Corruption Fund" read "someone's back pocket"!!

Is it because some people think that Europeans came down in the last shower. This is so funny

I think this type of scam has had its day as it's so well known and been widely reported over the last few years. But I'm sure there's some chancer in an internet café in Lagos who's always dreaming up new ways of defrauding gullible westerners.
