This story arc was brought on by an email my friend Justin forwarded me. Here are some choice excerpts:
At first the email says that we are to receive $150,000 as compensation for scams. It then decides that $250,000 is a more appropriate amount.
This email is full of grammatical and spelling errors, but we can forgive Reverend John Peters if English is not his native language. On the subject of the good reverend, a quick internet search of common names in Nigeria reveal such things as Iman, Hadi, Faisal, and Zaytun. John Peters must feel quite out of place in his homeland. Also unfortunate is that he wasn't able to get an email address with his full last name. Good thing he got the "rev" in there though.
I suppose there could be little harm is sending this man your information...
Nigeria has an astonishingly high population of 155 million people; this number is even more astounding when you consider that roughly 50% of them are royalty with money problems. But maybe all those money problems are behind them now, now they are trying to turn a good deed on the American people, and with the help of the United Nations, give back some of the money they have accidentally acquired from people abroad.
I've wanted to do something about the Nigeria situation for awhile, but couldn't focus, once I received this email the comics basically wrote themselves.
