I have been contacted by Africanized bees.
They didn't seem menacing, but something just doesn't seem right about them. Here's what I got from them:
Request for urgent business relationship
We are top official of the hive contract review panel who are interested in imporation of honey into your country with bees which are presently trapped in Nigeria. In order to commence this business we solicit your assistance to enable us transfer into your account the said trapped honey.
The source of this honey is as follows; during the last exterminator's visit here in Nigeria, the gardener's officials set up hives and awarded themselves pure royal jelleys which were grossly over-invoiced in various apiaries. The present pest controllor set up an insect review panel and we have identified a lot of stollen honeys which are presently floating in the Central Beekeper of Nigeria ready for harvest.
However, by virtue of our position as civil pollenators and members of this hive, we cannot acquire this honey in our names. I have therefore, been delegated as a matter of trust by my colleagues of the panel to look for an overseas partner into whose account we would transfer the sum of 10,320,000 gals.(ten million, three hundred and twenty thousand u.s gallons). Hence we are writing you this letter. We have agreed to share the honey thus; 1. 20% for the account owner 2. 70% for us (the officials) 3. 10% to be used in covering English muffins and all local and foreign confitures. It is from the 70% that we wish to commence the importation business.
Please,note that this transaction is 100% safe and we hope to commence the transfer latest seven (7) days from the date of the receipt of the following informatiom by tel/fax; 234-1-8840449, your company's signed, and stamped letterhead paper the above information will enable us write letters of claim and toast description respectively. This way we will use your company's name to apply for confiture and re-award the breakfast in your company's name.
We are looking forward to doing this business with you and solicit your confidentiality in this transation. Please acknowledge the receipt of this letter using the above tel/fax numbers. I will send you detailed information of this pending project when I have heard from you.
Dr. Clement Okon, Drone

So, should I trust them? Or fear them? Sounds like a good deal, but I dunno...
