Over the last week I have received one, sometimes two, offers a day by fax. These are all from Nigerian folk who want to rescue me from the clutches of the folk I have been dealing with. Here is one of them. (If I can control my fingers and the spell checker, the spelling and punctuation is 'as is'.)
FROM STELLA MIKE
I AM STELLA MIKE A COMPUTER SCIENTIST WITH CENTRAL BANK OF NIGERIA. I AM 28 YEARS OLD JUST STARTED WORK WITH C.B.N. I CAME ACROSS YOUR FILE WHICH IS MARKED X AND YOUR RELEASE DISK PAINTED RED I TOOK TIME TO STUDY IT AND FOUND OUT THAT YOU HAVE PAID VETUALY ALL FEES AND CERTIFICATES BUT THE FUND HAS NOT BEEN RELEASED TO YOU.
THE MOST ANOYING THING IS THAT THEY CANNOT TELL YOU THE TRUTH THAT ON NO ACCOUNT WILL THEY EVER RELEASE THIS FUND TO YOU INSTEAD THEY LET YOU SPEND MONEY UNNESSESARYLY. I DO NOT INTEND TO WORK HERE ALL THE DAYS OF MY LIFE, I CAN RELEASE THIS FUND TO YOU IF YOU CAN CERTIFY ME OF MY SECURITY.

THE ONLY THING I WILL NEED TO RELEASE THIS FUND IS A SPECIAL PROXY SOFTWARE DISK WE CALL IT HB2.
