Have you heard about Nigerian Scam? Actually in my experience I almost get fooled by the said scam.
I have received bulk of spam emails from this scam and I wonder where they got my information. They even knew my name and some information about myself, this may be due to some of the sites I have encountered.I am suspecting that some of the site owners who were responsible on some of the online registrations I have made had sold my personal information to other parties like to the people behind the Nigerian Letter Scam.
I have managed to contact one of the guys with this Nigerian scam. Actually they have had contacted me and was asking to send money in order to process the funds transfer of the amount which was more than million USD.
For the sake of everybody, Nigerian scam were offering big bucks to your account. They will tell you that they are lawyer and their client had big amount of money, died on plane crash without known relatives. In order to transfer the million US dollars they will be asking you to send money to them first in order to process the release and the transfer of the money to your account. It is called the "Nigerian Letter Scam" because they were referring on the bank account in Nigeria or sometimes it is associated with the Nigerian bank or people. This scam is being monitored by the Federal Bureau of Investigation by the link I mentioned below under the fbi.gov.
To give such example of the letters please find below:(Cut & paste from my email)
