Normally I just delete spam e-mail but this one was so innovative from our Nigerian 'pals' I thought I'd share. They want to pay me $150k because of past scam victims & "all I have to do" is to respond to be fed 'further modalities' ; read on:
SCAM VICTIMS REIMBURSEMENTS PROGRAMME.
I write to bring to your notice as a delegate from the Nigerian
Government Reimbursement Committe under the strict supervision of the United
Nations to pay 230 Nigerian 419 scam victims the sum of $150,000 USD (One
Hundred and Fifty Thounsand Dollars) each. You are however listed as one of
the beneficiaries for these payments.You are expected to get back to us for
your immediate reimbursement.
We shall feed you with further modalities as soon as we get your response so
send a copy of your response to [redacted]@ymail.com

I like to have fun with these eejits when they email me. I occasionally respond back to them with lavish schemes of my own. At least three people in Nigeria (or wherever) think I'm a drug dealer, Donald Trumps assistant or a Porno Director. I even had one guy said he would like to be in one of my movies.
If I get really pissed off I send them a link to a virus site and/or sign their email up for a boatload of donkey porn.
