Too funny

Talk about the Nigerian 4-1-9 scam in all its many variations, such as bogus checks sent from Nigeria to purchase used cars in the U.S. and many other variations of this scam.

Dear Friend ,

I am Mrs.Ruth Madoff, wife of bernard madoff.

I am actually going through some kind of difficult time with my family
right now, as my husband is at the Metropolitan Correctional Center, New
York City.My husband Sentencing is scheduled for June 16, 2009 and he is
likely to face a maximum sentence of 150 years in prison and $170 billion
in restitution, so there is need for me to move out alot of my personal
funds and peronal belongings around the world , particularly from outside
america, but i need somebody to trust now, because i cannot receive funds
here in america right now.
I would need your help in acquiring some properties and keeping some large
cash amount for me. but first i would prefer to chat with you either on
yahoo chat or Skype. if you are not comfortable with yahoo then write me
,so we can communicate via email.

This is very urgent, i would have to entrust a large amount of money into
your hands and some personal valueables. But this would have to be very
confidential, just between me and you, because the press are after me and
my husband's name all over the headlines, because of his Wall street

Anyway! don't be scared about the risk, it is a very safe deal i can
assure you of your condidentiality.

Yours Sincerely
Mrs. Ruth Alpern Madoff

Mrs. Madoff is Nigerian. Who knew?
