Here's a new twist on the 'Nigerian Money Transfer' scam of which there are a large number of variants now. The common features are "loads of money", Nigeria, and a fax number. They all want some money-up-front and that is the way the scam artists make their money.

I particularly like the 'we got ripped off last time' statement, is that meant to make you feel sorry for them?

Please ignore any messages regarding this scam and do not pass on any messages regarding it. Passing on messages about this hoax serves only to further propagate it.
