They actually are Nigerian!

Police in the Netherlands have arrested 52 people suspected of using the so-called "Nigerian e-mail scam" to defraud Internet users by sending them spam e-mails asking for their help in transferring a large sum of money outof Nigeria or some other troubled country in exchange for a generous percentage-fee. A task force of 80 officers raided 23 apartments, seizing computers, fake passports and 50,000 euros ($62,000) in cash. Most of those arrested were believed to be Nigerian.

    Turns out my insurance is cut off at midnight tonight, not the end of the month. In a way, that's a good thing. Now I'll move my appointment…

    A week off, but tomorrow I head to the home office for a week there.
