Latest spam

First the image spam was coming through, then penny stocks, now we’re back to Nigeria….ugh!

In the last several days, I’ve been getting messages like this one –

My name is Mr Usman Lama, I am a former military intelligence officer, a captain by rank and a Presidential aide under the government of President Charles Taylor of Liberia .I want to invest the fund that i have made during my time in service into a well profitable business and i want to invest this fund outside my country for safety reason because i don’t want the government to question me of getting this large amount of money…

This is so 2002.

It goes back earlier than 2002….when I left a job in 1990, my colleagues plastered my PC in dozens of begging letters I’d received from Nigeria!
