[Ads-l] OT: The Nigerian Scam revisited

I've just had an email (which my ISP rightly decided, with acute disdain, to
relegate to my Spam folder) threatening [sic!] me with legal action from
everyone from the IRS to the United Nations, if I don't send them at least a
token payment on an overdue debt.

I don't remember coming on this particular variant on an old-established ritual
before.

Anyone else had one of these?  Or am I the only sad person on this list who
checks their Spam folder?
