This is my first bait. I chose this lad out of several because he typifies the Nigerian 419 type scam email. I was impressed by the fact that he sent the emails in all caps. Typical subject, too "URGENT!"

YOUR IMMEDIATE INHERITANCE/CONTRACT PAYMENT
PAYMENT OF YOUR OUTSTANDING DEBT VIA CERTIFIED BANK CHECK
THIS IS TO INFORM YOU THAT THE PRESIDENCY HAS STEPPED INTO THE PAYMENT OF YOUR CONTRACT / INHERITANCE FUND. THE INSTRUCTION TO THIS BOARD TO AUTHORIZED YOUR PAYMENT WAS GIVEN BY THE PRESIDENT HIMSELF ALHAJI UMARU MUSA YAR'ADUA FOLLOWING INTELLIGENCE REPORT ON CONTRACT PAYMENT HE RECEIVED WHICH REVEALED THAT THE LOWER OFFICES AND DEPARTMENT INCLUDING SOME DEPARTMENTS OF (C B N) ARE ENGAGING IN THE PRACTICE OF PAYMENT DELAYS THROUGH UNNECESSARY USE OF BUREAUCRATIC OFFICE PROCESSES AND IMPOSITION OF UNAUTHORIZED FEES. THIS APART HAS BEEN ALLEGATIONS THAT SOME OFFICIALS OF NNPC AND CBN DELIBERATELY DIVERT FUNDS APPROVED WITH THE NAME OF A BENEFICIARY TO ACCOUNTS THAT WERE NOT GIVEN BY THE KNOWN CONTRACTOR AFTER THE DUE PROCESSING AND APPROVAL OF SUCH PAYMENT.
TO AVOID AND CURTAIL SUCH, OFFICIAL MISCONDUCT AND DELIBERATE DELAY OF FOREIGN CONTRACTORSí PAYMENT UNDER ONE FLIMSY REASON OR THE OTHER, THE PRESIDENT OF THE COUNTRY THEREFORE MANDATED THIS OFFICE TO RAISE CONTRACTORSí PAYMENT AND ENSURE THAT SUCH PAYMENTS ARE RECEIVED BY THE CONTRACTOR WITHIN A SHORT PERIOD OF FIVE (5) DAYS FROM THE DAY OF NOTICE. BASED ON THE INFORMATION CONTAINED IN YOUR CONTRACT FILES AND RECORDS SUBMITTED TO US FROM NNPC, CBN, AND FMF YOUR NAME WAS IN THE LIST OF CATEGORY A CONTRACTORS WHOSE PAYMENTS HAVE BEEN VERIFIED AND APPROVED WITH THE RECORDS INDICATING THAT YOUR PAYMENT HAS LONG BEEN OVER DUE. THE DIRECTIVE FROM THE PRESIDENT BASED ON ALL THESE FINDINGS IS THAT THIS OFFICE SHOULD MAKE IMMEDIATELY UNINTERRUPTED PAYMENT OF YOUR CONTRACT FUND DIRECT FROM THE FEDERAL TREASURY. OTHER OFFICES INCLUDING CBN EARLIER HANDLING YOUR PAYMENT HAS BEEN ADVISED TO HAND OVER TO THIS OFFICE TO AVOID DUPLICATION OF EFFORTS, THOUGH SUCH OFFICES HESITATE TO LET YOU KNOW OF THIS NEW DEVELOPMENT.
IN RESPECT OF THIS, THIS OFFICE HELD A MEETING WITH THE REPRESENTATIVES OF CONCERNED GOVERNMENT BODIES DURING WHICH YOUR CONTRACT FILE AND OTHER INFORMATION OF YOUR PAYMENT WERE SUBMITTED. AFTER GOING THROUGH YOUR FILE A LOT OF OFFICIAL IRREGULARITIES, IMPENDING STOP ORDERS AND COMPLEXITIES SURROUNDING THE PAYMENT WERE DISCOVERED. THIS OFFICE AND THE CONCERNED BODIES UNANIMOUSLY DECIDED AND APPROVED THAT YOUR CONTRACT PAYMENT WILL BE RAISED IN CERTIFIED BANK CHECK. THE DRAFT WILL BE RAISED EITHER IN YOUR NAME OR IN THE NAME OF YOUR COMPANY AS THE BENEFICIARY. AS SOON AS THE DRAFT IS RAISED AND SIGNED OFF BY YOU, YOU WILL BE REQUIRED TO PRESENT THE DRAFT AT YOUR BANK FOR CONFIRMATION AND CREDITING OF FUND INTO YOUR ACCOUNT. THIS WILL TAKE 3-5 DAYS OF DEPOSITING OF DRAFT IN YOUR BANK. FINALLY, I HAVE TRIED REACHING YOU BY TELEPHONE BUT UNSUCCESSFUL, I WILL ADVISE YOU TO CALL ME OR SEND ME A FAX IN REGARDS TO THIS, SO THAT I WILL INTIMATE YOU MORE IN REGARDS TO YOUR CONTRACT PAYMENT.
RECONFIRM YOUR DETAILS TO ME SO THAT I CAN VERIFY THAT YOU ARE THE GENUINE BENEFICIARY OF THE SUM. FURTHER DETAILS CONCERNING YOUR PAYMENT WILL BE GIVEN TO YOU ONCE YOU CONTACT THE UNDER SIGNED ON EMAIL: firstname.lastname@example.org, (CELL:TELE: 00923480-510-73888). THIS PANEL HEREBY USES THIS MEDIUM TO CONGRATULATE YOU AND HEART FULLY THANK YOU FOR YOUR PATIENCE AND UNDERSTANDING DURING ALL THIS YEARS OF DELAYS ON YOUR CONTRACT FUND.
SIR. JAMES MOUTON
My persona, Major E.M. Hoople, is very busy man and fires back a quick response:
Dear Mr. Mutton,
Thank you for your email.
I am extremely busy at the base and I do not have the time to read cumbersome, lengthy emails.
Would you kindly condense your message into one brief paragraph?
Please do not use capital letters while composing your wordy emails. Internet etiquette has it that to use capital letters indicates that you are shouting, and it is construed as being rude, egad.
Please do not take offense, I am merely giving you a helpful hint.
Email me back with your request....but make it brief.
