The Nigerian Scam has been around long enough that people can't possibly still fall for it can they? Can they?


Good thing she wasn't an easy mark.

No, she was really checking them out to the limit. Why, if she hadn't been so careful she could have lost millions.

She'll be way more careful the next time.

I feel sorry for her husband; he looks like the real loser here.

While I feel for the lady's misfortune, she's doomed us all to another 10 years of Nigerian spam.

That's really sad. Its bad enough people are losing the lifestyle they've worked for over the economy, but to lose what you've already worked for and stored away simply because someone is a lying thief without heart is sad.

But its also instructive: "she became obsessed with getting paid" equals greed, the number one characteristic that con artists look for. Everyone should read this to their children and friends.

Here's hoping the thieves are caught.
