Not as long as

by Dr Dij In reply to A new [b][i][u]"LOW"[/b][ ...

people think they can get something for nothing.

Twisting the story around to sound like the do gooder against the very same fraud is clever tho. Scammers will do whatever cleverness their little minds can think up.

I liked the scambaiters site where the aussie woman actually told a scammer she would donate if he painted his body in the 'cult of the butterfly' and sent her pix :)

Keep talking it up, Dawg

This one is a new one so I guess I will be sending out a link to this thread to all and sundry in my address book on the just in case plan.

The only way that arses like this are held responsible is when WE find them and WE hold them so. In other words, don't hold your breath.

Thanks for the alert!

Maybe I'll share my winnings

by The Scummy One In reply to Poor me

In fact, I got an offer from Nigeria, that a bank has monies from someone who passed away a few years ago. This money is sitting in the bank, but nobody has claimed it. So, as long as I do not raise any flags, tell anyone, or set off alarms, the execs want to share it with me. All I need to do is send my personal info.
All this AND they even included a photo of the execs standing around...

I will send it to you so that you may enjoy the wealth :)

As long as there are gullible people

by mjd420nova In reply to A new [b][i][u]"LOW"[/b][ ...

Too many people fall for this that I think they deserve what they get, worse than nothing DEBT. Both me and my son have received fake checks in the mail from overseas banks that we have them posted on a board. They now total over half a million dollars. Only one person has called to try and find out what happened but left a message(I screen all my calls) that was barely intelligible. I just laugh and still waiting for one that can be traced.

BIOK they're traceable and it isn't very difficult either. X-(

However, that being said, you have to prove a crime has been committed before the authorities will take any form of action. Unfortunately, not very many are willing to step forward and admit to being gullible and/or stupid.

Is it still coming from Nigeria?

by DadsPad In reply to A new [b][i][u]"LOW"[/b][ ...

Same scam different words.

I once saw a tv program that went to Nigeria to show how the scammers work. The had a tv camera come with the reporter. They entered what looked like a rundown place, went inside and there must have been 30 to 50 people in tight spaces in front of computers. People literally dived out of windows when the saw what came into the place.

They said at that time that Nigeria was cracking down on this type of business, but it seemed to increase after that show.

As well as Nigerians in England and elsewhere.

Others have now jumped on the bandwagon but the majority are Nigerian in origin.

Obviously a Scam

by dogknees In reply to A new [b][i][u]"LOW"[/b][ ...

Two seconds reading the text would/should tell anyone this is a scam. The grammar is a joke.

If you're not a native or fluent speaker of english, you'd have to be a fool to accept something in a language you're not familiar with anyway.

"The only result of protecting people from their folly is to fill the world with foolish people." Which is not something I'd want to do. If peoples folly doesn't have any effect on them, they'll never learn that it is folly.
