We want to move this money to you, so that you may invest it for us and keep our share for banking.You can go to this web link to read about events that took place there:

We will take 70%, my partner and I. You take the other 30%. No strings attached, just help us move it out of Iraq, Iraq is a war zone. We plan on using diplomatic courier and shipping the money out in one large silver box, using diplomatic immunity.If you are interested I will send you the full details, my job is to find a good partner that we can trust and that will assist us.Can I trust you?

Even by 419 Nigerian standards, this is a really poor specimen.

Do you reckon if I sent my bank details, I could have a share too? :)

I got one a few months ago and replied to the effect that I also was in Iraq and we could meet and discuss our tactics as I had many friends (obviously a lie) in UK to help me.
Strange I never heard from him again.

With £10million in the bank I'd want more than an frickin' Audi.

I reckon you might like to read this one: http://www.scamorama.com/mallory-head2.html

Briefly, the scammer gets in touch with a certain Thomas Mallory. Very unlucky chap, is Thomas; failed recipient of a whole-body transplant, he now lives a twilight existence in a sub-basement of Miskatonic University in a life support system, as an isolated head.

No company save for a caretaker, and no funds but a large trust fund of some several thousand dollars. Apart from a talent for typing with his nose, he has very little going for him and so is delighted to hear from Albert Abossi, who wants his help to get several million dollars out of Nigeria...
