419 Scam Letters

This is a collection of Letters relating to the ongoing 4-1-9 Scam. You'll probably get them in your email if you don't have proper SPAM or phisher protection. People writing these are really stupid and most reside in Lagos, Nigeria. Never trust anyone from Nigeria when it comes to doing business online.

ATTN: Our Reliable Client

=====================================================
One of the reasons why this guy is a dumbass: The location of the image of
the nigerian flag is taken from a website that discusses the 419 scam. If
someone was to fall for the letter though the likelyhood that they would
check the location of the image is small. Its just a bit of reverse engineering
that would detect that.
