A message from Prince Obi Matumbe Akumbe

E-mail is so 2001. Prince Obi Matumbe Akumbe knows this and has turned to YouTube and Twitter in his bid to find a kind soul willing to help him transfer $50 million out of Nigeria. Anyone prepared to hand over bank account details will be compensated to the tune of $10 million.

Unfortunately, we live in a cynical world and some people seem less than convinced by the prince's proposition, urging him to insert "an assortment of very large objects up my bottom"!

OK, it must be a spoof but the acting in the video puts Brando to shame and the Twitter comments are great too.

Finextra reader Roderick Williams informs me that Matumbe means "stupid" in Kimbundu, which is widely spoken in Angola.

As Roderick notes, our prince appears to have a subtle sense of humour...
