I had trouble coming up with a last panel punchline for this one, so asked some people for suggestions. Several said panels 1-3 were funny enough as they were. Others suggested:

4 Nigerian Finance Minister: Is that legal?
4 Nigerian Finance Bureaucrat: They'll pay us 10% of their takings as a fee!
4 Nigerian Finance Minister: Why does this sound familiar?
4 Nigerian Finance Minister: Hmmm. Tell them sorry, but sharing our data with them is in violation of our privacy policies.
I felt this last one was particularly good, but finally went with the one you see in the comic.
2014-12-23 Rerun commentary:
4 Nigerian Finance Minister: Quick! Send out the mass e-mails!
4 Nigerian Finance Minister: Priceless.
4 Nigerian Finance Minister: This is a doubly proud moment for Nigeria!
4 Nigerian Finance Minister: Why, Finance Minister?
4 Nigerian Finance Minister: They were running our software!
4 Nigerian Finance Minister: ... as the actress said to the bishop.
