Nigerian Scam email for Chefs
I received this today. I have had a couple of Nigerian scam emails (I say Nigerian but this could be from anywhere, it's just that the Nigerians were the ones that made this style of scamming famous) in the past but never one that is Chef oriented. It does have the obligatory typos and charming coloquial English usage. What fun!
