A Nigerian prince wants to order chicken Caesar salad

Posted By on Wed, Jul 6, 2011 at 1:35 PM

I got the weirdest spam-scam in my email box this morning — subject line: "Attn...Manager Or Owner (Chicken Caesar Salad)"

Hello My name is John Morris and I would like to order for individual grilled chicken salad in your restaurant for 150 people on 20th of July and pick up time is 4pm and it's for my Dad's Birthday Party and it will be picked up by my courier agent and I am ready to pay the full payment with my credit card so get to me with the following information below......

Restaurant Address:
Total cost for the food:
Personal cell #:

Please Advice.

Given the syntax and capitalization, it wasn't hard to puzzle out this wasn't a catering order gone awry, but instead another friend of the many Nigerian princes who write me twice a week, wanting to share their respective $160 million fortunes. And sure enough. Apparently the good son recently changed his name from "John Elvis" to "John Morris."

Anyone else get this email? I'd never heard of it before.
