and then informs me of the following:

Attention: Beneficiary.

What is 419: the Nigerian Scam?
419: the Nigerian Scam is an internationally acclaimed movie - an educational docu-drama that reveals how the Internet fraud works and what the common mistakes are. Where did the inspiration for making the movie come from?

Every year, more than 50,000 people worldwide fall victim to the Nigerian Scam. Usually contacted by e-mail about a business proposal or winning a lottery, the victims lose their life savings after they are persuaded by stories with very tempting outcomes.

According to some reports, the scam is the third most lucrative industry in Nigeria, generating over 5 billion dollars in the last 20 years. Authorities have named the scam after the number of the article in the Nigerian constitution that deals with the matter - 419.

In regards with the investigation that has happened recently here in Nigeria we noticed that you are dealing with some Nigerians who claimed you have money with them and they have failed to make you get the money and you lost so much money during this process,we are currently paying so many people with the same problem, so I have been directed by the settlement committee held by our new elected president DR Good Luck Jonathan  to include you in our payment roll.This is as result of the recent provision in the 2009 / 2010 fiscal year budget that was made for scammed victims.
ahaaaa....so you have done business in Nigeria

well it is good to see that they will pay compensation to those scammed   ;D
SSSHHH    you weren't supposed to see that part.  I was there last year for a conference. Ha Ha  ;D

Interesting, sent from the UK, some idiot must have sent you mine ;D

More interesting the address heading:
FROM THE EMAIL LOTTERY PROMOTION AWARD COMMITEE
NATIONAL LOTTERY OF BURKINA FASO
AFFILIATE OF NATIONAL LOTTERY UNITED KINGDOM
AVENUE CHRLES DE GUILE

I doubt even the French spell Charles like this "AVENUE CHRLES DE GUILE," AVENUE CHARLES DE GAULLE.
The prize is in € euros and the email contact is in Israel.
What I would call a real International company ;D

Filled with the usual spelling and grammatical errors, they should employ a good proof reader to be taken seriously.

Someone has gone and messed it up for the rest of us and bloody reported it, http://antifraudintl.org/showthread.php?p=68098, rats.

Very possibly as you would have a hard time finding the AVENUE CHRLES DE GUILE in either the UK, France or Israel.

I suppose you could ask them to transfer it directly into your bank, they might need your user name and password though and possibly your inside leg measurement ;D

And the offers to become a Millionaire just keep coming:

https://www.evernote.com/shard/s20/sh/eb1466a2-dee7-42e7-8b11-b6f339e459a1/4a7f6b8c63c802035bee1f0987a035be

Good thing that I'm so rich that I don't need any of what's being offered.  ;D
