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

Here's a novel scam, seemingly I am owed a few dollars by the US Internal Revenue Service.

All I have to do is click the link, and fill in a few details.

One small problem, I am not a US citizen and am not liable to pay US tax.

After the last annual calculations of your fiscal activity we have determined
that you are eligible to receive a tax refund under section 501 (c) (3)
of the Internal Revenue Code. Tax refund value is $268.32.
Please submit the tax refund request and allow us 3-6 days in order to
process it.

If you distribute funds to other organizations, your records must show
whether they are exempt under section 497 (c) (11). In cases where the
recipient organization is not exempt under section 497 (c) (11), you must
have evidence the funds will be used for section 497 (c) (11) purposes.

If you distribute fund to individuals, you should keep case histories showing
the recipient's name and address; the purpose of the award; the manner of
section; and the relationship of the recipient to any of your officers, directors,
trustees, members, or major contributors.

To access the form for your tax refund, please click here

Note: For security reasons, we will record your ip-address, the date and time.
Deliberate wrong inputs are criminally pursued and indicated.
