State of the art
Ah yes, 1960's state of the art. Harken to the time of the great masters. I really wish these people would learn English better, but then it wouldn't be as much fun.
Calling all true patriots: one of the Lads from Lagos has got himself into a right royal state and needs a quick $2k to fulfil a lifetime's ambition to hang a pic of Her Imperial Majestyness Queen Liz II on the wall.

Given this lads level of devotion, I reckon we should hand over the genuine article for another 500 quid, with Phil the Greek thrown in as a freebie. I bet yer man would be delighted to have a genuine Monarch gracing his living room rather than an old painting, and it would remove a constitutional barrier to a UK republic.
419 is when you say "look chummy, I don't know who you are, and you don't know who I am. All you need to know, is that I'm going to give you ONE BILLION GILLION FIFFILION GABAZILLION POUNDS STERLING, and all I need is a post mark, and maybe some spare change to feed my uncle, who, by the way was a prince of Kuala Lumpur untill some naughty militants took over just untill very recently. This is a really good deal for you, seeing as how you invest very little, and the rewards are very high." After you rush to the post office to order 1000 pristine postmarks with the Queen depicted upside-down and inside-out, you get the second letter, the one about the lawyers and the banks and the fees. It goes something along the lines of "Hey dear chap, well, since now we are invested into this venture, we might as well go a little further. See, well, if I don't get 2000 pounds right away, I will be chopped to bits, my uncle will starve to death and the money? You can forget about it." This is of course when a lot of even the dimmest of the dimwits bail, but you - you perservere asking the poor black man to join your chirch and to write "I am a chicken, bukaaah!" on a piece of paper. Sometimes you can even make them act out a short scene from Monty Python...
That's what 419 is. Free entertainment at the expense of oppressed people, who want to scam you out of your millions of dollars.
This? This is just rubbish!

This doesn't even look like a request for a loan!
Not even the staunchest monarchist is going to throw $2000 so someone else can buy themselves a painting of dear old lizzie, no matter how young and nubile she looked in 1960.
This just shows what a lawless and chaotic state Nigeria is! They don't even have training schemes and quality contols for their leading industry!
