Nigerian Scammers Hit Citibank for Eight Figures You know all those goofy 419 scams that are sitting in your spam folder? The instantly recognizable pleas to wire your account info for riches untold? Well, those guys just scammed Citibank out of twenty-seven million dollars.
Now that's got to worth a couple of million dollars off of somebody's next bonus, for sure.

I wonder about this article. Neither of the reference links on the page point anywhere useful. Google news search doesn't find anything about it.

Is anybody besides me thinking 'hmm, interesting way to make $27 million disappear in case we're the next bank investigated for God-knows-what?"

It's a good thing my mattress doesn't have an email account or a phone. Take that you Nigerian fuckers.

I'm really glad now that we can no longer poke fun at the President because of his potent ninja Awesomeness, that the banks are providing us all with much-needed hijinks and hilariteye.

OK. So where are all the banker jokes? This entire industry is making lawyers look like benevolent geniuses in service to society. How long 'til we get some good banker jokes? Aside from the real-life ones like this?

Ooh, I found a good one.

Einstein dies and goes to heaven only to be informed that his room is not yet ready. "I hope you will not mind waiting in a dormitory. We are very sorry, but it's the best we can do and you will have to share the room with others" he is told by the doorman.

Einstein says that this is no problem at all. So the doorman leads him to the dorm. They enter and Albert is introduced to all of the present inhabitants. "See, Here is your first room mate. He has an IQ of 180!"
"That's wonderful!" says Albert. "We can discuss mathematics!"

"And here is your second room mate. His IQ is 150!"

"That's wonderful!" says Albert. "We can discuss physics!"

"And here is your third room mate. His IQ is 100!"

"That's wonderful! We can discuss the latest plays at the theater!"

Just then another man moves out to capture Albert's hand and shake it. "I'm your last room mate and I'm sorry, but my IQ is only 80."

Albert smiles back at him and says, "So, where do you think interest rates are headed?"
