Elastic human tragedy, send cash ASAP

Build a business case: developing custom apps

Here's a refreshing new angle on the 419 advance fee fraud email: a "show me the money" variant which takes our beloved English language round the back of the bike sheds and gives it a right shoeing. Enjoy:

The compliment of the day, How are doing an also running of your company, hopping all is wall. I received you mail that day about my application for job at weybrige, you know, I am a Nigerian, so it has been long I started planning on how to travel to that side, over 7 year ago, I think that every thing is trying to come to manifestation, that is why I apply for Job. Well thanks for bringing out your time to fine a very good work for me because I have gone through those once I fill is ok to me.

With respect and humility I wish to apple for help, (why) on Monday been 5th march, I want to bank and collect all I have their, to go and paid for a flight at Abuja, Nigeria, unfortunately I was attack by am rubbers so the synch away that money from me.

Since then I do not know what to do, well this early morning I decided to write for appreciation of what you did to me an also apple for help in any way.

Thanks. for your coppretion.

Magnificent. Quite what "coppretion" is we know not. Regarding the truly terrifying ordeal at the bank, we're sure our US readers will get even more enjoyment than we did from the concept of our Lad from Lagos having his money synched away from him by rubbers. The mind boggles.
