How'd This Happen

I worked for a long time for a company which had accidently gotten an extra zero into the sales volume number in its D&B rating. This made the owner the target of boiler room stock brokers and the like. Going thru the mail, one of my responsibilities on occasion, I came upon a Nigerian 419 letter, hand typed on paper. The only mail fraud I'd ever seen was the "Make Money Fast" pyramid, we didn't have public discussion of the scam, my schooling was nowhere near that of a PhD. and it took about ten seconds after reading it to bust out laughing.
