Examples of the "Nigerian scam" that flood my email box everyday.

Yoinks I have won $1M!

Unfortunately it is a scam, designed to trick me into paying "processing" fees and revealing my bank details.

There is no money, just a scumbag scammer somewhere in cyberspace sending millions of these fake emails out to the naive and unsuspecting.

Throw it away!
