E mail back and say that due to your job as government tax inspector you would be only too pleased to help. :devilish: :devilish: :devilish:

Just in case you don't know. (Though I'm sure you do.) This is a scam that comes up every so often. They will ask for your bank details soon, so they can transfer the money to you, etc etc. Then wipe out the account.

Ask for their details first, and wipe out their account.

From a police statement some time ago, it would appear that 1% of people who receive these sorts of things believe them, and send them the money! It's amazing and worrying to know that there are so many naive people out there. But that's life.

Skim,

It's amazing and worrying to know that there are so many naive people out there

It is much worse than you would believe as I know of one company director who received a version of this. In spite of being shown the published articles in every broadsheet as well as many internet sites clearly showing that this was a scam they went ahead anyway and were taken for over £30K.

The problem is that peoples greed overcomes any common sense and I also posted another example of this trait in humans concerning a money pyramid scheme. In this case I sat down with a friend of mine and explained the maths behind being able to get a £12K return for a £1.5K outlay. In this case it would have required 1 in 20 people of my entire home town population to join this scheme to get the proposed return.

This was ignored and they went ahead anyway and of course that was the last they saw of their money as all they could see was the return and ignored all risks involved.

Is it any wonder that scams spring up and if I didnt have a moralistic view on life and people I would have been a millionaire a long time ago.

for a laugh and some justice at the scammers expense. It seems they have refined the scheme a bit over the years and rather than trying to break into your account will ask for money for expenses, bribes etc. all necessary to get the process moving. The money element usually starts off small and builds up in bits and pieces. If they get a real mug their usual scam is to get them to fy to Lagos or Amsterdam and then hold them for a couple of days whilst they clear out accounts.

I still find it incredible that people can be this thick but there is one born every minute (so they say).

In This Post, I copy and paste my standard reply to Nigerian scammers :D


Dear [insert name of Nigerian scammer]

Please excuse my late response. I am in charge of a credit account firm, Troll Inc based in Dade Co. FL USA, and I manage over 150 money accounts for various commercial and private customers.

I am very interested in your offer, but I am a little hesitant about
sending my fax and phone numbers via email.

If yuo would like to contact me, I would feel more confortable if
yuo would go to my business site [insert URL of a gay porn site or the like]. This will ensure more security as it has my direct personal home phone number and fax.

Yuo will also see from my site that I have the expertise to give yuo exacty what yuo need.

Sincerely,

- Car Key Boi
