    A few nights past, I had a date with a wonderful man I met at the internet cafe. His name is Gideon, and he is actually a very prominent doctor in Nigeria. He is so kind and generous, and kept telling me how smart I am, and how handsome I am. Tomorrow, we're going to the bank, to arrange the return of several million dollars owed to him upon the death of his father. For some reason, we need to use my bank account though. Oh well, he says I can keep a percentage for my troubles!

    Aren't I lucky to have found a nice man...and money too? icon_wink.gif

    You forgot to mention how to your "kind consideration" you agreed to help such a wonderful catch.

    Is this a joke? He will rob you, don't let him have your bank account info. This smells like those spam mails people get that are like "X, we have 100 million dollars to transfer across the ocean, we need your info so we can place it in your account, you get to keep half" or "You won the Scottish lottery, tell us your bank info so we can give you the money".

    Wade on the cautious here, I am rather worried. That is, unless I am missing out on a giant inside joke.

    This only reinforces the feeling I have that I am missing out on a terribly evident joke.

    You are most kind to notice, prominent American citizen. Someone of your astuteness would greatly benefit from the millions I stand to inherit but cannot transfer myself out of my estate in the French Congo. However, a simple bank account number from you...

    This is most fortunate for you malefeet. It's nice to know there are such thoughtful people out there. Over the last few months I have received two very thoughtful telephone calls at home from companies checking to see whether I wanted to remain in their lottery draw (strangely and most coincidentally, I didn't recall being in either one, since I don't participate in such things as a rule). When I said I didn't, they kindly offered to remove me from the list, though of course doing so required that I give them my banking information... just for confirmation purposes, you understand.

    CREWSKI778 saidare u serious? of course he is joking.. if this can be called a joke.
    I mean, there has to be a point to a joke, and I just don't see one in this or most of the posts or things people say. If I am out of touch then that's fine by me.



    You're obviously new here. This is how it works.

    I'm assuming some guys here aren't familiar with this well-known scam, that the OP is parodying for both humor, and as a helpful reminder of the dangers out there. It almost always involves Nigeria, and has fleeced a number of US citizens.

    The lyrics to "Lies of Handsome Men" has this false flattery situation nailed, too, though the protangonist is willing to go along with it. Here's a gay-themed video treatment:

    I wonder how you'd fare when you answered some questions on money laundering on my client questionnaire?

    Ha ha Malefeet - this is so funny - my brother sent me an email this morning from my mother who got an email from "a lovely Nigerian prince" who has MILLIONS of oil money tucked away in an account somewhere, but alas those evil evil people at Shell have tried to oust him from the oil trade, and as luck would have it all he needs is 10,000 euros to access the account, and then we'll get lots of money - it's gonna be the best Christmas EVER! lol

    I much preferred these scams in the days before email - at least then I'd have a nice Nigerian stamp to add to the collection.

    Malefeet, if this guy is only a doctor... hold out for a prince!
