Re: latest variety of Nigeria scam
Just curious...Why post this - is there something unique here? I've been collecting these for years now, kinda like collecting insects. Currently I have about 120 variants from Princesses, widows, Prime Ministers, Ambassadors, and sons of deposed Kings, each with millions to give me. This looks like a plain old vanilla variety that we've all seen.
Seems similar to spammers in terms of problem profile. A systematic approach is probably the right way to address it. (Please don't start a Spam thread here.)
