Baghdad = Lagos, Part II

Over two years ago, we argued that Iraq was showing signs of being another Nigeria. Well, they're certainly picking up some lousy business ethics from somewhere, because today's e-mail brings exciting news:


I am Mr. Abu Al-Karmel, I am working in Economic Development and
Foreign contract payment Operations Department, in the Central Bank of Iraq (CBI).

My aim of writing you is to seek for your kindness assistance to allow me quickly transfer the sum of US$15.million dollars, into your account.

We're not ruling out that some Keyboard Kommandos will argue that this a positive sign of entrepreneurship emerging despite the insurgency.
