I tried to trick one of those morons by photocopying an actual Western Union sheet and photocopying false info into it.  It looked pretty realistic, so I sent it to him.  Apparently he brought it to the Western Union office in (where ever the hell he was) and tried to cash it.  I think the shop owner told him to get out of his office, since he then emailed me back complaining to the hilt about falsifying my info.

Sucker.

Thats GREAT!!!!!

      Nigerians have to be the all time, world champions of low level scamming.  Back in the 80s, before the internet, I swear the cops in Atlanta would arrest 3or 4 a week on charges related to stolen credit cards and such.  Amusers and decievers of the highest order for the most part.

      Be sassy and be happy.

          He should have got life with the possibility of parol, as most of his gullible victims are paying the price for the rest of their lives, even though he has been asked to pay back all his victims, he isn't going to do that am sure he's going to declare himself bankrupt

                I can't understand why people still fall for this scam? How can there still be a person on the planet who is not aware of these scams? While I feel sorry for people who are duped, part of me would like to shake them and scream, "don't be so stupid!".

                We all get a lot out of lotteries!

                  These scams demonstrate why lotteries should be legal, if we didn't have legal lotteries, more money would be spent on illegal lotteries. Prohibition did not work with alcohol, it is not working with drugs, and it will not work with lotteries.
