Re: Nigerian Scam

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next] I received similar letter about 3 years ago. It was in a kind of handmade envelope. Obviously I knew it was a VERY dirty scam. Unfortunately about 4 months later, I met one of my acquaintances (very naive man), which had responded to that letter and deposited nearly $20,000 money into their account. Make the story short, not only his money was gone, he traveled there, to inquire about his money, and he was almost getting eaten!!

I recieved an e-mail from somebody in Nigeria and have enclosed it for the list to read and be aware of. The US State Department URL warns of abductions/kidnappings and STRONGLY suggests that you don't go to nigeria even for 20% of 55 million dollars (which is in the second letter not attached). What they really want is my body ! I wrote back saying that I couldn't afford airfair to Nigeria or Europe but I DO have a bank account here where he could place the transfered funds !
