Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

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.

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.

Thanks to Thomas Fynes for spotting this lovely example of the genre.
