    My response would have been something along the lines of: "Does your bike have computer controlled suspension? Then shut your piehole, this baby is from the future!"

    More than likely this:

    Lagos, Nigeria.
    Attention: The President/CEO

    Dear Sir,

    Confidential Business Proposal

    Having consulted with my colleagues and based on the information gathered from the Nigerian Chambers Of Commerce And Industry, I have the privilege to request your assistance to transfer the sum of $47,500,000.00 (forty seven million, five hundred thousand United States dollars) into your accounts. The above sum resulted from an over-invoiced contract, executed, commissioned and paid for about five years (5) ago by a foreign contractor. This action was however intentional and since then the fund has been in a suspense account at The Central Bank Of Nigeria Apex Bank.

    We are now ready to transfer the fund overseas and that is where you come in. It is important to inform you that as civil servants, we are forbidden to operate a foreign account; that is why we require your assistance. The total sum will be shared as follows: 70% for us, 25% for you and 5% for local and international expenses incidental to the transfer.

    The transfer is risk free on both sides. I am an accountant with the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC). If you find this proposal acceptable, we shall require the following documents:

    (a) your banker's name, telephone, account and fax numbers.

    (b) your private telephone and fax numbers —for confidentiality and easy communication.

    (c) your letter-headed paper stamped and signed.

    Alternatively we will furnish you with the text of what to type into your letter-headed paper, along with a breakdown explaining, comprehensively what we require of you. The business will take us thirty (30) working days to accomplish.

    Please reply urgently.

    Best regards

    Howgul Abul Arhu
    You see, their morals, their code...it's a bad joke, dropped at the first sign of trouble. They're only as good as the world allows them to be. I'll show you. When the chips are down, these...These "civilized" people...they'll eat each other. See, I'm not a monster. I'm just ahead of the curve

    It looks like a solicitation from a trucking or shipping company called Talisman.

    +1. Curiously, they tell you to call, but then leave no number.

    No, just silly add for a moving company. So if you just purchased a new furniture or moving then call the number they never listed. lol

    I did not include the numbers. they were at the bottom on the page. did not want to include them if it was somehow business related. So it is an add from a moving company? weird. Can one of you call them and get me a quote for a bowel movement in Dallas Texas?

    Sadly, among their services they only mention furniture, your apartment, or a company. (Also the Russian word for bowel movement doesn't include the verb "to move")

    The double exclamation points and the fact that they're advertising services via spam mail just reeks of the professionalism they say they have.

    actually tried several translation sites and got gibberish back. I only speak frontier gibberish, not russotechno gibberish, so I am still at a loss.

    I've tried putting postings from BF into babel fish and Google Translate. It always looks like gibberish, even in the original.
