    Didn't your doctor tell you to stop holding back your feelings and say what is on your mind. Much healthier.

    Actually, you should forward the original email to 419Eater.com If you've never been to that sight, check it out. These guys actually bait the scammers, and make them do some incredible things trying to get the money. They even send pictures of them doing the prescribed activity. It's hilarious.

    I believe it was to the Secret Service.

    You never know. They just might catch the POS.
    Unfortunately, the Nigerian police don't really take this stuff seriously.

    A while back I received one with FBI in the message header, the bozo was trying to convince me that he worked for them and was forwarding me a valid scam.... yeah I have a nephew that works for them and I sent it off to be very closely investigated The (FBI) have no sense of humor and take the use of their name very seriouisly...
    One more thing I received yet another one today.... too bad I trashed it 15 million would be nice to by more toys with

    One word though when forwarding any such message for investigation it must be the original. At the top of the list is most e mail providers have a "view full message headers" option, this is the tracking data that can lead back to the source if you know how to read (I do) them. Regardless be sure to copy N paste it on your submission, do not forward as a attachment as most file servers will red flag it as a possible virus and possibly trash your message.

    Yet another fun trick is right mouse click on any link they may provide, go to properties and that will tell you where their link actually leads... I like to include these in any complaint I may file.
