Oh Steve, you party-pooper you. Just when I thought that my charm and good looks had attracted this nice young lady, Jane...
I guess that it was a slow day in that Nigerian Internet cafe.
And here I thought it was my sparkling wit that made her write to just me!
Just out of curiosity, and all humor aside, do you know what the scam is?
Inquiring minds [SIC] want to know...
It is one of those African bank scams.
Do a Google search on her name and you'll see that she's everywhere!
If you respond, here's the response you'll get from her:
Well, it looks like it WAS that Nigerian Internet cafe, after all.
Just looking over last week's e-mails, if I availed myself of all of that "lost money," and the various international lottery winnings that I have, I could pay off the US's National Debt. Wonder if I would get the Citizen of the Year Award? Hey, watch out Carlos Slim, I would soon displace you as the "Richest Man in the World!!!!" This would be true, even AFTER I paid off the National Debt, and maybe got Greece out of their financial troubles too.
If I had just taken advantage of a month's worth of these e-mails, I would control ALL of the world's money...
Thanks for that link. Was just curious what the MO was on this scam. Other than running down the PM list for the Adobe forum, it's really not creative at all. I thought it was Russian "brides," or something.
This should point out why it is NOT a good idea to post one's e-mail address in any thread on an open forum Too many 'bots about.
