Which Nigerian Spammer Are You?

Eighty percent of all Internet users say they have received spam messages informing them they are the recipients of untold riches in a bank account in Nigeria. The other 20 percent are either lying or haven't checked their e-mail in several years...

The folks at BBspot, who are always good for something funny, have an online quiz to determine which Nigerian spammer you most closely resemble.

You are LAWRENCE OBI. You are Bank Manager of Zenith Bank Lagos, Nigeria. You will share with me 30% of the $26.5 million that BARRY KELLY who died with a WILL left in your bank.  You put the money in two trunks and want me to claim the money.
