Or, welcome to my low-maintenance heck.

Creativity in Spam

This has got to be one of the best Nigerian scams I've seen in a long while:

You are dead true?

Ask them for a picture of the money. (I actually had Nigerian scammers send me a picture of the money!)

HAHAHAHAHAAA.  Did they really DMartyr?  Wow.

Brian, if you are dead, then how do you explain the presence of this post?  I'm confused.

Yeah, I posted about it a while back.

Here a copy of the certificate they sent to "PROVE" they were storing four trunks (supposedly filled with money):

And here's a picture of the money they are holding for me:

I couldn't find the post, but snappedshot still has the pictures...

Obviously these are very honest people or they'd just keep the money for themselves... ;)
