CENTRAL BANK OF NIGERIA
This is at least slightly more interesting than the average Nigerian scam.
Of course, there is no pile of money. You will be asked to pay various of the expenses in advance. For legal fees, for bribes, to pay storage at the security company, whatever they can think up that you might believe.
The criminals will just keep whatever you pay them and no money will ever get to you as there isn't actually any money.
But don't you just love the careless insouicance of :
'MY COLEAGUES AND I WHO WORK IN THE SAME DEPARTMENT UNANIMOUSLY DECIDED TO INCLUDE AN ADDITIONAL CONSIGNMENT CONTAINING $15M (FIFTEEN MILLION US DOLLARS) FOR OUR OWN BENEFIT'
They just had $15 million lying around? How wonderful, eh?
Ignore it, it's a scam, a fraud, like all the others.
