So, apparently the Nigerian Prince scam is well known enough that now they're targeting people who know it's a scam.

I got the following in my email today, from the totally legitimate and not at all fake sounding email address "Mr.Segun Adewale"<service@bestarmedia.com>:

FROM THE DESK OF MR IBRAHIM MAGU

EXECUTIVE CHAIRMANECONOMIC AND FINANCIAL CRIMES
COMMISSION(E.F.C.C) IN

Fraud.

Hundred Thousand United states Dollars (US$2,500,000.00)

Hundred Thousand United states Dollars (US$2,500,000.00)
