Nigerian letters

Russia has more in common with Nigeria these days than just oil.

Following up on the politically charged jailing of oil tycoon Mikhail Khodorkovsky, a wave of scam e-mails in the style of Nigeria's notorious spammers have been popping up in inboxes from Moscow to Kentucky.

I received some this letters, half a year back. Also it is possible to expect letters from ex-president of Russia Mikhail Gorbachev and from the wife of the president of Chechen Republic Achmad Kadirov.

Be careful.

Since Russians have access to the Internet, why can'tpeople set up businesses online, instead of the wave scams happening now?

Scam gave a lot of money and there's no laws to punish scamer.
