    I get at least 1 or 2 or these scam emails a day.

    They even had an undercover investigation series on a TV show here in the States to bust these Nigerians.

    They work out of coffee shops and internet cafes, it was soooooooooo funny to see them get busted on hidden camera.

    The show is called Dateline on NBC.

    My mom called me yesterday (she lives in a little tourist town in BC) and she was telling me that some guy from one of the outlying towns got a letter in the mail that his long lost uncle died and left him a really nice house and a bunch of money - but he had to come up with $18K in inheritance tax FIRST. I was like, "Uh mom, that's a total scam." But the guy's going around bragging to everyone about his "luck"....so it just goes to show, some people DO still fall for this kind of thing. :mad:
