    I, the poster known as DukieInKansas, would be open to the opportunity to join you for adult beverages at a future tailgate of your choosing to celebrate the arrival of your trunks full of money. Just let me, the poster known as DukieInKansas, know when to expect my airfare and invitation.

    I'm relieved you were given assurance from the Federal Bureau of Investigations in Washington Dc that this isn't a scam.

    I will hold my breath awaiting the arrival of your trunks of money.



    OK, maybe I won't hold my breath - it turns my face red.

    Wouldn't these people's scams be like 300% more effective if they spent a couple hundred bucks and hired someone who actually knows English to proofread their stuff?

    Has anyone seen the thing where that group of guys scam the scammers using old computer parts?

    Not sure if folks have seen this site, but it is dedicated to people scamming the scammers. Some very funny stories, complete with emails and photos and audio to accompany. One warning; some language is slightly salty (apparently scammers don't like getting scammed... who would have guessed?)

    Link!

    During a career with an MNC, I first encountered the original Nigerian scam more tham 20 years ago in person on a flight from London to Milan. Since then, variants have been delivered by postal mail, telegram, phone, and the internet.

    The internet and email has enabled the basic scam to morph and proliferate in countless versions from all over the world, but the original Nigerian scam is still out there.
