That's what kills me about these scam emails.  Half the time you can barely figure out what they're asking you to do.

....... And they actually work on some people.

 

Imagine how much they would make if they spent $100 to have someone who spoke English write the email.

I wonder if they actually do find suckers that send the info to them. I've heard of it happening in the past, but you'd think people would learn.

I'll pass on a story that was told to me, seriously and from a pretty reliable source.  Back when these letters first came out many years ago, an elderly lady tried following up on this and went to Nigeria to try to complete this process (it appears she communicated with them and they thought they had a live one).  The scam is run by the Nigerian mafia and when they got what they wanted they killed her.  Like I said, this was presented to me as a serious and supposed to be true story.  Didn't know these letters were still out there.

Well, since you are getting rid of your tractors, I will buy one from you. I will send you a check for $500,000, you cash it, keep $1000 for the tractor and mail the rest back to me. I will have my "exporter" shipping company stop buy and pick tractor up after I received money.

 

 

Got that one pulled on me, I would've been out $4200 if I had tried to cash that check for a $500 pop up camper I was selling!

if you ever get bored.  People scam these people.  They post their stories on the above webpage.  It's pretty funny.  They have done everything but talked them into getting tattoos to join churches, and even send them money to pay for "transfer fees"

Somewhere around here I have 4 beautiful $500 AAA money orders. I actually took them to AAA to let them see what they thought. Until the fakes were held up next to a real one it was about impossible to tell.  The paper was wrong. I kept them just for giggles. They stayed over the sunvisor in the WarBeast for years.

As we speak, Cat is being held captive in a Mexican jail. Send me $500,000 in small bills and I will forward it to the proper authorities. If you want proof he is still alive, I can arrange to send you an empty Dos Equus can.

Wait, is this Cat Balou, Cat Stevens, Cat Erpiller or who?
