    Don’t be a stupid fool or an idiot and believe a word these Nigerians say. Everyone of them are nothing but liars and scammers, and anything u see from the Central Bank of Nigeria is nothing but a fraud and a scam. I’ve gotten hundreds of emails like this, and all they want is your bank account information, and for u to send them some money before they can proceed, and they will get around to asking you for it. So just be patient and hang on. Those Nigerians are nothing but con-artists, and u can go to the Nigerian Scam Website, and it will tell u all about them.

    Go to the U.S. Department of State, or The U.S. State Department, and it will tell u all about those Nigerians, and all the different scams they come up with. Read about Nigeria, and find out that it is the most corrupt country in the world, except for Bangladesh, and its worst than Sodom and Gomorah. I’ve been dealing with them for the past 4 years now, and i deal with them on a day to day basis, and i’ve found out about all of their schemes and scams, and the way they go about doing them. and i’ve found out that most of them has already got money on top of money from greedy americans and canadians, and most of them will eventually tell u how stupid we americans are. I had one to tell me the other day that he lives high on the hill, and that we americans have made him rich, after he had been posing as a woman and talking to me for almost 6 months. After he saw he wasn’t going to get any money out of me, he finally admitted that he was a man, and he told me how well he lives, and how we have already made him rich. He talked about how they sit around and laugh at us americans while they drive their mercedes benz’s and their Jaguars, and bmw’s around on the money they’ve gotten from us americans. Dont fall for anything they say, it is nothing but lies, and a bunch of game. Use your common sense, and know that u have no deceased relatives, and neither do they have any deceased relatives who have left large sums of money into an account, and somehow your name was randomly picked. I am a black man myself, and i have already seen how they have tried to get me to send them money. All i try to do is waste their time, by talking like i am interested and sometimes it goes along for months, and i’ve even spent years talking to some of them, until they finally realize that i am not going to send them any money, then they will get frustrated, and tell the truth. I feel like that is the best way to deal with them, because talking to them and pretending to be going along with them, will only delay them from trying to scam somebody else, and by the time they realize they don’t have u where they want u, they will become angry and frustrated, because they realize they have only wasted their time talking to u for so long. And i love making them frustrated. Show them just how stupid they are, and maybe they won’t waste too much of their time on their next victim. But try and prolong them and delay them as long as possible, by pretending to go along with them, until they finally leave u alone. And don’t give them any of your personal information, but try and get as much of their’s as possible.

    Hi Johnny
    Thanks so much for your concern. I was trying to show how moronic these were as well. I’ve been getting them more and more lately and I can’t believe that people truly believe them. I got one about a week ago that was my favorite. It said that they ‘chose’ me because their deceased clients last name was the same as mine. But no where did it say my last name or the deceased clients. So they had no way of knowing it. It was just a hook.

    I liked this scam because it stated that the courier had to move here. That was a new one for me and an interesting thought. Like, that should be a quick transaction if they have to move here first AND THEN I get my money.

    I don’t think the people that fall for these scams are stupid. I think sometimes, they are desperate and looking for anyway to ‘win’ some money. They’ve probably been on hard times and/or are elderly and unaware of these types of scams. It probably has less to do with greed on the victims behalf than gullibility and a hope for something better.

    Knowledge is power and the more we expose these types of emails, the better. Maybe some random person might be saved from being taken in. Or maybe Duh 😉 I’m glad to hear that you have been wasting their time though Johnny. That makes me smile since I’ve often thought of doing the same thing. Keep up the good work. I’ll have to post a clip (if I can find it) of my favorite radio station calling one of these scam artists and messing with him. It made me laugh. I’ll look for that.

    Do it! Do it!

    And yes, the people that actually fall for this are stupid. STOOOOOOOPID. And usually they are old too. OOOOOOOOLD.

  6. Chris says:

    Geez Duh
    Could you hate old stupid people any more? They just wanna be loved, is that so wrong?
