Folks, there's a new variation of the "Nigerian Letter" scam....

I got a curious letter in my email today. It was from, of all people, "Sir Pedro". Sir Pedro wants me to know tha t I have won a series of grants totalling 2.5 million dollars from the country of Nigeria that will be sent to me in increments as soon as I tell Sir Pedro my bank information. Imagine that! He clains to be from foundations called: Vittorio Foundaton and the Economic Community for West African States. Now I researches the Vittorio Foundation, and it really exists. It's part of the Catholic church and is in Italian. I had to translate the page, and needless to say, there is no mention of Sir Pedro anywhere on the site. The second "foundation" I ws unable to locate on the web. Anyhow, I am writing this just to inform everybody that if you got a letter like this one, YOU DIDN'T really get a grant for 2.5 million dollars! Don't fall for this scam!
