"My names is Major-General Beau Grady of the US Army resident of West Chester Pennsylvania, US. I am currently in Kabul, Afghanistan on a Special Rescue Mission as a top rank delegate.Note: I did follow one of his directives: I deleted his "confidential email".
During an intense search on collapsed buildings for the war victims, beneath one of the Gold Trading Blocks, I discovered a trunk box in which raw cash of $2,900,000.00 USD and pure Afghanistan Gold worth about $1,700,000.00 USD was. No doubt, the original owner must have been killed in the war, and I intend using the money to help war victims around the world. Just assist me in securiing the Gold and cash pending my return. If I can trust you for this task, then reply and get a 30% share of it or delete my confidential email.
Give me a confidential response as quick as possible. I can only be reached my email now, as security is on top gear and any calls out may be tapped and monitored. Waiting for your soonest reply."

Call Me Mr. Mugu
I received the following Nigerian 419 spam/scam email around mid-day today. It wins props for unwitting humorousness as well as a bit more creativity than typical and a few fewer grammatical errors than typical for these felonious e-missives from the Dark Continent. Note: "Mugu" in title above refers to the "mark" targeted by these scammers whom refer to their marks as such.
