The ingenuity and implicit humor found in Nigerian spam mail inspired a close friend of mine, Mike Flynn, to send this incredible response.
This could be the funniest thing I have read in a long time . Well done Mike.
Re: Next of Kin
By a most uncanny coincidence, I am also soliciting a barrister, preferably a national of your country, who worked with Shell development. By a most unfortunate series of events, I was being held hostage in the trunk of the car that claimed the lives of your client. Fortunately I was blown clear of the wreckage and was able to make my way through the jungles of Nigeria to the Plains of Arjuna dragging a dozen large boxes that I was informed by the sister of the mailman who claimed to be the illegitimate heir to the throne of Uganda, Mr. Yanindada N’Golo Botticelli Vespa, manservant to your client, contained bars of gold bullion!
When I made it to the Baltic sea I was able to obtain safe passage (after many months of hardship as a fish monger’s wife) in a freighter to northern Lapland where I met a Nordic Shaman named Odin who told me you would be contacting me after 23 full moons to fulfill my economic desires.
Paul, I feel I can trust and confide in you and feel from your words that you are a man of God and the people who will help me in my time of need. If you can help me with my immediate need of exporting 300,000,000 pink plastic monkeys to Jakarta I will then be in a better position to provide assistance in routing US$106M to my accounts in Lichtenstein.
be the ball Danny,
