How You Doin'?

I received another "Nigerian letter" tonight offering me 25% to help them transfer funds to my bank account. I always respond with an email that says, "I'm so excited! Do you need my bank account number or anything?" A portion: "My mother died when I was just 4 years old, and since then my father took me so special. Before his death on Febuary 12 2003 he called me and disclose to me that he had a sum of the Twelve million, Five hundred thousand United State Dollars.(USD$12.500,000) deposited in a suspense account with one of the local banks here in Abidjan, IvoryCoast. He also said he used my name to Deposit the fund with the bank as his only daughter, as well as the next of kin to the fund. He also explained to me that it was because of this wealth that he was poisoned by his business associates, That I should seek for a foreign partner in a country of my choice where I will transfer this money to and use it for investment purposes."

Might as well change your email now. I started getting those on my old account, and they just kept coming more and more.

It amazes me how many people have falled for those skeems. Remember that lady this year who shot her pastor husband? She was so caught up in one of those.

I had a friend that was approached with the same scheme.....with a little twist....she was selling a dog and he was "interested" in buying the dog....but could she help her with this "other" matter....she had fun with him too....especially since she had a Texas Highway Patrol Officer husband!

Another scam is an e-mail or phone call that you won the lottery in some other country (usually Canada or Mexico). You just have to pay 5% of the money and it's yours. Then, they take off with your 5%. 1. No lottery makes you pay taxes up fron.
2. You can't win a lottery you didn't enter.
3. You have to be a resident of the country you won it in.
