      Whenever you receive something of this nature you should always click on the "Report Spam or Abuse" button at the top of the message so Todd knows what's going on. It seems that any time you see "Nigeria" and "lottery" in the same sentence it's a scam.

            I asked him if he wanted to buy the Nigerian rights to Chicken Soup in a Sponge.

            I haven't heard back yet.

                          99 percent of the time, if your asking yourself is this a scam, yep it is:-) I don't know if it is or isn't but seems sketchy

                            LOLOL - that could make you quite a pretty penny there Ridge!

                            I have had two different scammers contact me since I joined.  Each time I simply clicked  the 'report this to Todd and he will fix their wagon' button...

                            although I really like Ridge's idea... think it will work with the telemarketers who HOUND me to death on the phone?

                              I've never tried that one max but it should work.

                              What I usually do is tell the caller to tell me about the product and then I ask endless questions about it and then I tell him I'm very interested in it and ask him to explain it all again.

                              When he's through with that, I tell him to explain it to my wife and I pause like I'm handing her the phone and then I start speaking in my extremely loud Queen of England voice and ask him who he is and what the hell he wants and when he answers me I pretend to be hard of hearing and keep shouting "WHAT? WHAT! WHAT?" until he hangs up.
