The old Nigeria scam must be dead—the new scam, per my spam filter at 1:50 am this morning, is how to get your money from those Nigerian scammers:

Great News, You are advised to Stop Contacting Them.

I am Mrs Sandra White; I am a US citizen, 48 years Old. I reside here in New Braunfels Texas. My residential address is as follows. 108 Crockett Court. Apt 303, New Braunfels Texas, United States. I am thinking of relocating since I have been compensated. I am one of those that took part in the Compensation in Nigeria many years ago and they refused to pay me, I had paid over $45,000 while in the United States trying to get my payment all to no avail.

I decided to travel down to Johannesburg, South Africa with all my compensation documents and i was directed to meet Barrister Mccarthy REX who is the member of COMPENSATION AWARD COMMITTEE, I contacted him and he explained everything to me. He said whoever is contacting us through emails are fake because the Inheritance/Compensation Law clearly states that the beneficiary/recipient is exempt from paying any out of pocket fees or charges to receive said funds.

Barr. REX MCCARTHY took me to the paying bank for the claim of my Compensation payment. Right now I am the happiest woman on earth because I have received my compensation funds of $15,000,000.00 (fifteen million dollars). Moreover, Barrister REX MCCARTHY showed me the full information of those that are yet to receive their payments and I saw your name and email address as one of the beneficiaries that is why I decided to email you to stop dealing with those people, they are not with your funds, they are only making money out of you.

I didn't think the internet had any frontiers of self-referentiality left to explore.

I wonder what it's like to live in the head of the person who wasn't just fleeced by the Nigeria scam, but will be fleeced again by this Nigerian meta-scam. There's got to be at least one person who's going to fall for this.
