    Do you know they have internet cafes full of these people trying to scam people. Its their job.

    Government doesnt care either ...

    We should hire people to knock their internet down so they cant do this :)

    oh and they have rap songs about taking money from the dumb white people ...

    I work at a bank, and you wouldn't believe how many people fall for these scams.
     
  5. You should see the indentity scam segment on CNN. There are a some Nigerian immigrants, not all by any means, in Houston that are professional idenitity thieves. They caught 1 guy with $2.5 mil US in a safe in his house! They just troll for credit card apps. in apartment buildings, breaking into mail boxes and such. They caught some of them after they had already been deported twice because it's easy to get bogus passports in Nigeria.

    How do they know that 100% of these emails are coming from Nigerians and or Nigeria? I find that hard to believe. It's just giving Nigerians a bad name.
     
  7. ever get those hand written letters? too funny. i had one jackass approaching people in the parking lot with a letter explaining why he needed $100-1000
     
  8. The other day Dateline NBC had a show on this. They exposed a few scammers.

    I think they would go out of business if more people watched segments like that on CNN or on the web. Unfortunately most Americans place less emphasis on being informed, and watch only American Idol and Deal or No Deal
