    One of you had better act fast before the other cashes in first.

    They were in Nigeria, then Gambia, but then they moved to Togo,

  • #8

    It's a ridiculous attempt at a scam though, what are the chances that someone has a relative called J.B. Negron who died on the 30th of April 2005 in a car crash?

  • #9

    Anyone who can't pick such an obvious ploy, oughtn't bother with chess.

     

    Say nothing, let natural selection take care of the weaklings.

    They told me I was guillible -- and I BELIEVED them.

    15 orthographical and grammatical mistakes ... not bad for such a short mail. Barristers ain´t what they used to be. And I like the sentence with " ... who died ... in a fatal accident". Ever heard of anyone who died in a non-fatal accident? Tongue Out

    If anyone wants to know how to turn lead into gold just send me some money and i,ll tell you.

    I checked, and "deplawg" has a closed account.

    Over the past few months, local news reports in Toronto, Canada have identified two victims of similar fraudulent practices. I believe the were both elderly, and lost something like $170,000 and $50,000 respectively. These scums prey on the weak...and just need one gullible person...

    The sad part is the law is unable/unwilling to take any action, until the horse has left the barn.

    A couple weeks ago, some dick heads in Canada tried to sucker me into wiring them $3,000 in a phony mystery shopping job offer scam.

    My grandmother has gotten scam phone calls.  People call from Canada and claim to be one of the grandkids.  They say they have been arrested for marijuana and need bail money wired.  I can see how it would work against an elderly person who's mind is starting to slip.  Luckily, grams hasn't falling for such dastardly bullshit.
