We all get them. They have become the third certainty in life along with death and tax. Usually they are dull and boring. But occasionally one turns up in my inbox that is amusing in its brass necked confidence. Like this little gem...

So has anyone else been emailed by such an august personage as the Secretary General of the UN claiming to be offering compensation for being scammed?

Yeah, that very same one arrived in my yahoo account the other day; from a clara.net email address as well. Times must be hard at the UN - or our Nigerian friends are extremely f***ing stupid!!!!

Isn't there a site dedicated to winding these f***ers up? Can't remember the name of it but was shown it ages ago and it was proper humour.

I always forward those emails to the Liarbore Party headquarters.... I'm sure there are enough Muppets there who might fall for one of these.....

I got one from the CO of 1 R IRISH asking for help in getting a ton of Saddam's money out of Iraq. It must have been a different 1 R IRISH though as the CO's name bore no resemblance to the guy I know and they were in the UK at the time.

and for some reason routes his emails through Nigeria. I suppose he has to be careful though

Mr AND Esquire. Shameful.

It amuses me every time I visit the Tank Museum, the list of donors lists me as W. N. Alien esq, and not Mr W. N. Alien.

Evidently cav ranks up from hoi polloi.
