    to work with a Nigerian banker so I can get $800,000???


    I got a new (to me) spam email from the FBI Fraud Unit, with an actual address of info@fbi.gov. Now I knew it was spam from the get-go, but I wanted to see how they'd play this.

    "This is to Officially inform you that it has come to our notice and we have thoroughly completed an Investigated with the help of our Intelligence Monitoring Network System that you are having an illegal transaction with Impostors claiming to be..."

    Wow...so I've been involved in illegal transactions? Nice of the FBI to point that out in an email. But then, they go on to tell me that they'll help me get the money I'm seeking by following their instructions, one of which is to pay $800 for an $800,000 return.

    Fun stuff.

    $800 for an $800,000 return? Forget that. I can get a lot better deal than that with the CIA.

    But you have to work as a Colombian mule for a week to get that better return.

    I've eaten press box hot dogs for 20 years. Being a drug mule is a cinch compared to that.

    Do you get a company car for this? I only ask because IIRC you seem to need an extra set of wheels about now ...
