This one was dated January 2006 but has reappeared in March 2010. Scammers always recycle! And it’s such a complicated story. The World Bank in London wants to give you money, but someone from Arkansas has shown up at their offices claiming to represent you. If you’re still alive you’d better speak up or this person will take all your money. It’s a scam within a scam, and you need a scorecard to keep track of the players.
