New Nigerian scam

Or not a scam really. Jonah pointed to a ThinkProgress story about Nigeria’s charges against Halliburton and Dick Cheney.

The Nigerian government moved to “charge former Vice President Dick Cheney in a massive bribery case involving $180 million in kickbacks paid to Nigerian lawmakers, who awarded a $6 billion natural gas pipeline contract to Halliburton subsidiary KBR when Cheney was running the company.

Or as Toby put it:

DEAR MR CHENYE

WE AWAIT RECEIT OF 500 MILLION USD

PLEASE SEND SOCIAL SECURITY NUMBER AND BANK ACCOUNT NUMBER AS SOON AS POSSIBLE AND WE SHALL WIRE THE MONEY IMMEDIATELY

DR. JOSEF MABATU

Good times.
