Authorities Found $43 Million Cash In A Nigerian Apartment, So Now You Feel Stupid For Ignoring That Dude’s E-mail

The Nigerian prince spam scam is as old as e-mail itself. You know the gist: If only you help out this Nigerian prince in a far away village that you’ve never heard of by providing him his credit card number, he’ll make you fabulously rich with your cut of his massive royal fortune. It’s a fabled sucker scam.

Last week, authorities in Nigeria *actually* found an apartment filled with $43.4 million in currency. Bet you feel bad now for not e-mailing that guy back…

This prompted the entire Internet to make the exact same joke.
