    This is one of the funnier things I have read about the Nigerian scam. Some people have taken to playing with them and documenting what all they do. The guy who wrote this is hilarious. And as an added bonus there is a picture of his "wife" half naked.

    Bruce: if you really want to muck with the guy reply as follows;

    "I'm sorry, but $26million is about 1 week's pay in America. If you have any friends with some real money, please have them get in touch with me.

    I make $ 1.4billion a year, and I am a janitor (I clean floors.) keep this in mind."

    Of course, the king is here. http://www.419eater.com/html/stev_ebe.htm He scammed the scammer.


    In all seriousness, it's sad these people work so hard to bilk people. I'd like to say their efforts should just be spent in legitimate enterprise, but that'd be applying this country's oppertunity environment to another country I've never visited.

    I spoke with a person who played with the scam for fun.
    They are clever to not ask for your money up front.
    They have attorneys fax letters, personal calls, and send
    Fed-Ex packages etc...all without asking for any money.
    Eventually they try to spring the trap:

    We have to draft the papers to give you your money.
    All we need is 5K. Of course they cannot take the
    5K out of the millions they are going to give you.

    They will still run after you, even after you have declined
    their generous offer of trading 5K for millions. LOL

    I wonder if anyone has ever fallen for this? I think we should send similar scam letters to Nigerians.

    A very wealthy (well apparently not any more) Royal LePage real estate franchise owner in your neck of the woods lost $500K CAD to these guys a few years back. It was on CTV's "W5" show a year ago.

    Ralph.....heh......no I don't.....but, he was willing to show his face on TV during the episode I watched.....apparently the Royal Bank of Canada stopped him before it was too late and he sent even more money overseas or for that matter.....went there himself.

    How could someone be so naive ?
