Hmmm… well, those Nigeria Connection emails are quite funny, aren’t they? I’d be a billionaire if I’d answered only 1⁄10 of them. Ok. Now, it’s a well known fact that these guys are not very talented in writing or translating these letters. Letters written in German are just as funny as translations by Altavista’s Babelfish or any other free automated translation program. But … what’s that:
[…] I am in search of an agent to assist us in the transfer of ($15.5M)FIFTY MILLION, FOUR HUNDRED THOUSAND
UNITED STATES DOLLARS. […]
Fitfy and fifteen. The pronounciation is quite similar. That’s, however, not that obvious for four and five. For me $50.4M sound much better than piffling $15.5M. But … it’s only me.
