The variants of the Nigerian spam are getting cleverer and cleverer to
get though the filters.  I can't always immediately recognise them. No
wonder the spam filter gets fooled too.

We victims of spam collectively are about the silliest of victims
imaginable. We provide a FREE service to the spammers to torment us
with. WE SUBSIDISE THEM.  It costs them almost nothing to send a spam,
and even at the weakest response percentages they still make money.

It is almost like providing ladders and setting out cookies and milk
for the burglars.
