    Looks legit, I'm helping a guy get his inheritance out of Nigeria, the deal seems almost too good to be true.

    Sadly there are people who are this dumb and fall for this shit. I've heard stories of people who've gave hundreds of thousands, just last week some woman gave $20,000 to one of these dumb scams. I really don't feel sorry for any of these people.

    I used to work with a guy from Ghana and once got one of these emails. I showed it to him to make fun of him and he started laughing... Then he told me that the reason he was laughing was because he knew the dude that sent it. He sent a reply and they began a huge dialog.

    After talking to him a while, I got the scoop. They use their real names and people fall for it more than you'd expect. They don't steal money, but they definitely con people into "donating" money to them so they can transfer the money out (which never comes). The Ghana government completely turns a blind eye, so there's no recourse for the American.

    I have quite a few pictures of lads that will do pretty much anything to get money from me. I'm still working on one to send me a picture of the tattoo I told him he must have to be part of my church before we (the church) give him money.

    I just got active on this last week, fucking with "lads," the spammers. The sport is called "spam baiting." You get on their lists and unleash hell on them. It's fun, and good for you!

    I'm on quite a few lists so far. I've got a couple fighting with each other over how "fraudulent" the other one is....when you want to kill time, this is a riot! Make sure you keep all the pictures of the lads holding up ridiculous signs so you can send them back to them once they finally clue in.
