 Another 419 Variant - 'cbn'

spam, Skewered

And, apparently, that doesn't sit too well with some of the Lads from Lagos -- as we can tell from this variant that I recently received.

Ahhh, yes... The author is correct -- this is a scam! The early versions got the nickname "Spanish Bull", as they referred to a lottery known as the "Toro". Apparently, this scam has cross international borders just like the "Nigeria 419" has.

I wrote up one of these in an earlier article, It's a "Lotto" Bull!, so you can read the various warnings & stuff I received there.
