    Great news guys, my ship has come in at last. Just received an e-mail from an american soldier who's discovered a stash of gold in the Iraqi desert, believed to have been hidden by Saddam Husseins govt. $80,000,000 US. He just needs $15,000 dollars to transport it out of the country, and he will give me 10% of its value. I cant believe my luck.

    Many people fall for these.

    Surprisingly, lots of them are supposedly intelligent affluent educated (but greedy) people.

    Apparently the Nigerian government has warned its citizens that if they get any e-mails from Irish/UK/US banks, promising government-backed deposit security and seeking bank account details, it's a scam...

    Yup. In the "old days" before email, these scams were common by post and fax.
