The one from the FBI Director is an amusing read.

I chuckle at the good Christian lady who expects me to use her donation in a purely altruistic christian way.

 

Fat chance of that happening. And for more than one reason!

 

I does make me wonder what tree this 'newspaper reporter' has been sleeping under, for him to think that the police would be interested in this.

i watched the news here in new zealand a couple months ago reporting about kiwis getting scammed. an elderly had fallen for one of these scams twice. hard to believe anyone could be stupid enough to be scammed twice.

I am disgusted to see that K Fongwin brought this matter to the police!
Is there no more confidence and trust in modern society anymore?!?...lol

And so stupid these scammers are. Can they not think of more plausible stories ?

200.000.000 Pounds... OMG.

 

Once i was queueing behind a mother and daughter at a post office counter. They were about to transfer money to Nigeria. Fortunately the p.o.clerk warned them about a scam and advised them to not transfer money to the scammer. They didn't do it finally. Talked to them afterwards, couldn't believe they were so stupid to trust that person in Nigeria.

Advanced fee frauds, more commonly known as 419 scams, originated from Nigeria and are as old as the hills.  Before you ask, the '419' part of the name comes from the section of Nigeria's Criminal Code which deals with that particular sort of fraud.   How anyone ever falls for them defeats me, but they do.  I guess it's pure greed. Remember, if it sounds to good to be true, it is too good to be true.

Thinking of clicking like but I, of course, fear being criminally responsible for something I played no part in!

Things are really bad when a person can't accept a gift from our Nigerian friends on behalf of charity without contacting the police
