Tom Smith The Most Trusted Man In Nigeria 
Ahhh, money laundering is so much easier with Formula 419. But, even at this late date, some people Just Don't Get It.

This song is now available on the following CDs:

What they don't tell you is that the money is from the Bank of Monopoly.

You know, out of hundreds of spam messages I've received in my lifetime, I've never gotten one of these.

That tune sounds so freakin' familiar, but I just can't place it. Argh! I hate it when that happens.

(Posted by someone on Usenet) http://www.news.com.au/heraldsun/story/0,21985,21726760-661,00.html According to one of Murdoch's Aussie rags, 75% of people near Brisbane told that they were victims of a 419 continued to send money. By the way, the first time I got a "winning notification" it came 20 minutes after and from the same Spanish IP as a letter from the widow of a dead African ruler. So it was probably the same person. And Googling the winning ticket number, I found that it had been sent by mail-to-news to the Deadheads Usenet group. So I guess all the newsgroup Deadheads have a lifetime's supply of pot and dayglow-painted schoolbuses.

Sadly, they ~don't~ trust me in Nigeria. Maybe I should give them more money...then they will.

I, sadly, work for the Pharmacy at Wal-Mart, and we actually recieved Faxes along those lines. We got about 10 total over the course of 2 weeks. Great song, I'm totally forcing it upon my co-workers!

I am happy to announce, Tom, that "Man in Nigeria...." has become a "Shillelagh Safari W/DJ Seamus" staple....I play it often since you were kind enough to give it a funky, worldbeat edge, and since I think most people with internet access can relate to it. My heartfelt thanks to you for your exellent song-writing.
