You would think you would see a burgeoning Nigerian economy, with that
amount of money in play!

Subject: RE: Nigerian Scams

The most recent Postal Service newsletter states that this scam has
collected about $100,000,000 from Americans thus far, over the many years in
operation. The amount stolen from foreigners is not stated. Fifteen people,
including one American, have been murdered in Nigeria when going there to
"complete" the transaction. They had been using counterfeit stamps for their
mailing, but these letters are now are being caught and destroyed, so they
have moved to email. Hard to believe there are that many stupid people.
