The Power of One Brief: Top reasons to choose HP BladeSystem

It appears that decent 419 scam emails are like buses - you wait ages for one and then eight turn up at once.

Only yesterday we were lamenting the recent lack of imaginative material from the Lads from Lagos, but not only are they now offering themselves into sexual servitude, they're also breaking into the oil business. Good timing, too, what with the current Iraq punch-up already pushing up the price of black gold:

ATTENTION: THE PRESIDENT/CEO SALE OF 2 MILLION BARRELS OF BONNYLIGHT/QUA IBOE CRUDE OIL PER MONTH FOR 12 CALENDAR MONTHS

Sir,
We offer for sale, 2 million barrels of bonnylight/Qua-Iboe crude oil per month for 12 Calendar month.

The mode of payment shall be by a non-operative, bank guarantee, standby letter of credit or a financial guarantee bond with a validity of sixty (60) days.
