Never seen a bigger pile of tosh in my life. Phone the tel no and get charged £x per minute!

I have sent him a nice response:

This is the biggest pile of w**k I have ever read and you can shove this where sun does not shine. Hopefully some other mug will respond to your scam and give you your money!

I remember that the BBC Radio 4 PM programme got one of these type of e-mails a couple of years ago, but from the Dutch lottery. They got one of their investigative journalists to look into it. They tracked down some Nigerian in Amsterdam whose address the e-mail originated from. The interview was an absolute classic. They woke him up asking how to claim the 3 million or whatever. He was half asleep and half horrified they had got his number.

A very funny and interesting site if you are interested in this sort of thing is http://www.scambuster419.co.uk/
