Nigerian Scam: Death of Accountholder

The “Nigerian Scam”, which is a type of email scam, was mentioned in a previous post on internet scams. I must apologize to our Nigerian friends, who may be minded to object why this type of scam has come to be known as the “Nigerian Scam”. Anyway, this scam just won’t go away, probably because some still fall for it. Just minutes ago, I received this email:
