Nigeria has millions that needs YOU to transfer



sounds absurd right....did anyone actually fall for this email scam that has been going on now for years?

Yes, this woman did....and she lost $400k in the process:

Quote:
When Spears began to doubt the scam, she got letters from the President of Nigeria, FBI Director Mueller (spelled Muller on the emails), and President Bush. Terrorists could get the money if she did not help, Bush’s letter said. Spears continued to send funds....

She wiped out her husband’s retirement account, mortgaged the house and took a lien out on the family car. Both were already paid for.

For more than two years, Spears sent tens and hundreds of thousands of dollars. Everyone she knew, including law enforcement officials, her family and bank officials, told her to stop, that it was all a scam. She persisted.

What an idiot....I just can't imagine being so blinded by greed, and so unwilling to listen to reason. You would think that, um, you would search to see if it was a hoax before you sent hundreds or thousands of dollars? I bet if she had she would have even seen her exact email word, for word.

Still....it made me laugh a little (and feel a little sad inside too that people can be that dumb)


cheers,

IF the emails were all true, and IF I even cared to bother with them, I myself would have over 18 TRILLION dollars already!
(The most amusing part to me is the ones that say I have won out of many entries, and I log into other email accounts I have, and THEY won, too! (wish I could remember even entering!)
My most favorite is the one that is supposed to be from the UN claiming they are trying to return funds to those who have been scammed in the past. Interesting they have my email addy, considering I've yet to even bother replying to ANY of the scams and have lost nada!
(All people need to do is check the word usage, grammar, spelling, and even look at the email accounts the email came FROM. I don't know of any company (or whatever) that uses yahoo or gmail or other free email accounts... Do you?)

I actually enjoy watching people think they are clever, when in fact they aren't.
I would rather watch someone that IS clever discover just how clever they really are, when they feel they aren't.
(Yes, I am somewhat self-absorbed...hehe)
