Nigerian 419 stories are like London buses - you wait ages for one and then a whole rack of 'em turn up at once. And indeed the following has just rolled in from reader Paul Garnett, who received a very tempting offer via Skype chat:

My name is Mrs Michelle Francis, I am a senior partner (Attorney) in the firm Martinmoore law firm: Private Investigators,Security Consultants and Financial Managers. We are conductinga standard process investigation/Recommendation on behalf ofInternation Bank of Trade. This investigation involves a client who shares the same surname with you and also the circumstances surrounding investmentsmade by this client at IBT Gold Account The IBT Private Banking client died intestate and nominated nosuccessor in title over the investments made with the bank amounting to over US$9Million. The essence of this communication with you is to request that you provide us information/comments on any or all of the four issues as regards nominating you to inherit the fund left behind by this client...

And so on and so forth. All pretty standard stuff, although we have to ask: is nowhere safe from the Lads from Lagos? Crikey. ®
