Interesting, no? Well I think this letter I received a few weeks later makes it even more intriguing. Again, you can skip down to the bold typface (or skip back up to the first letter's bold section, you'll see)

My rich relatives Smith B. Snow and Scott Snow were living dangerous lives in Nigeria. Do you think I should put Mr. Tom Phils in touch with Mr. Eric Morgan? Apparently they don't know about eachother, but it may help speed up each case. Maybe there is a connection we don't know about. Also, is it funny that these Nigerian bankers have such English names? Something feels fishy; I just can't put my finger on it.

I once had a co-worker that had a relative in Nigeria also. What are the chances of that? Things didn't really work out. She ended up losing quite a bit of money...on credit cards I might add.

Our friend Mike went to Nigeria on business and he had to bribe his way out of the airport. He had to hand over a ton of cash, but what really sealed the deal was his Texas Instruments calculator!

After 4 long years of searching, they finally decided to use a new-fangled electronic device called a com-pu-ter and just type in the name "snow" on something called the in-ter-net. Hmmm . . .
