    Apparently these idiots have not fooled enough people using their email, so they are going to regular paper mail.

    One more reason why all junk mail should be eliminated to save paper for usefull things..

    The scam has been around as a mail fraud long before the advent of the internet.

    Nigerian scams have been coming by paper mail for decades. My father used to collect them at his work, frame them and put them up on his wall.

    E-mail revolutionized that industry.

    What scam? You mean to tell me I'm not going to get my $187,372.59 from Mr Motobu?

    I've had a few rough phone calls lately dealing with the Nigerian scam. Someone has counterfeited our company checks, and is sending them out on Nigerian scams and advance fee scams. I've made several calls to people to let them know that they've been conned, and not to send the money oversees. Several of them had not sent the money, a couple had.

    Tough to tell someone they just lost a ton of money.

    I'm collecting funds to stop the Nigerian Scammers. If I can just get you all to send me $10 each, I'll get right on it. [​IMG]
