Nigerian Scam jokes are awesome. One of my favourites is the one which says the Nigerian Goalkeeper was willing to refund all the ticket and travel expenses of all the fans that traveled to witness the team's dismal showing at the 2010 Football World Cup. All he needed in return was their bank account details.

We've all been hit with spam e-mails and text messages that congratulate us for winning *insert massive sum of money here*. So when Gail Davis received a call from someone claiming to be one of Apple's executives saying she'd won a $10,000 gift voucher for iTunes, she promptly hung up saying “Thank you very much, I'm not interested.”

Who wants $10,000 anyway?

However, that caller actually was someone from Apple and she actually had won a $10,000 iTunes gift voucher as part of the giveaway for the lucky downloader of the 10 billionth app from the App Store. It wasn't until one of her daughters brought it to her notice that she actually could have been the aforementioned lucky downloader, did the gravity of the situation hit her. Much panic and chaos ensued, but all was well that ended well because she got another call back from someone at Apple. Now much purchases and apps can be had.

This was a hilarious turn of events. Maybe Apple, one of the biggest companies in the world, should rethink the strategy for calling their customers.
