MY DESK: MADISON -

Normally, I would not insult your intelligence by submitting for your perusal such a clear and ridiculous spam/scam email. One that comes from the "Code of Conduct Bureau" in Nigeria and asks for personal information like a bank account number in an effort to get $3.5 million.

The only reason I'm posting this is because sometimes notes like this make me chuckle.

For example, this email starts out by stating, "You are advised to read this Letter very carefully because every paragraph explains what you need to know about the Release and Transfer of your due Funds."

So, there I was preparing to read carefully and the very next sentence is the exact same as the one before it with the same odd capitalization of words.

Apparently, the author of this scam/spam didn't take their own advice before sending it out.

As the famous Yogi Berra once said, "It's deja vu, all over again."

Just hit delete.
