Well my, my the oldest scam in the book has moved itself to the personals. I recently put my profile up on Yahoo Personals and I had a few people who contacted me.

so don’t hesitate to mail me and I will reply you back ….. You will be asked to travel overseas to meet with the scammers and complete the necessary paperwork.

But Most especially i will soon be back to state soon I look forward to hearing from you again soon.. What are the basic qualities you seek for in a man? But before the transaction can be finalized, you must pay thousands of dollars in “taxes,” “attorney costs,” “bribes,” or other advance fees.

Please feel free to say anything and I would Like to know know thing about you like : What are you doing for Living ?? However, there is no minister or money other than the money you paid in advance.

I started laughing when I read it and immediately knew my instincts were correct-SCAMMER! It’s really hard to find a person that is interested in a possible long term relationship and not just a one night stand. My late Mom was from Kansas and My dad was from, West Africa cos he was brought up from Nigeria … my Late mother and father were married for 43 years and I think that is truly wonderful thing and I want to let you Know that i relocate from Elsmore , Kansas to Powell St, San Francisco anytime from now which I let you know that i just got a 1story 10 home yesterday .

- I will post his scam email here so hopefully when other 13 year olds or disgusting old crooks sitting in a room in Nigeria try to pull this crap on another person , they will know they are being set up by one of the oldest scams in the book. they both meet in Rome , ITALY , where i grow up and they instilled many wonderful values in me. I want this also very much..although my life is full of love , there is the most important element of life that is missing from mine.life person must be sincere, honest, understanding and family oriented.

Read the letter and I will then explain to you how the old Nigeria scam works. My Late mom raised me to be fighter and always come out on top and that is what i plan on doing. My Dear Linda , am still having Difficult with my laptop for me to send more Pictures of me to you , hope this wont stop us from talking here and carrying the conversation to High level .. I also want someone that is always serious all the time…that is able to just “have fun” and balance this with responsibility..someone that is adventurous,loves the outdoors and laughing…I want someone that can appreciate quality in life but also the most simplistic things in life., but I want to share my life with someone.. Got to go now and Hope to read from you soon Randy There are tons of “tells” in this email.

I do not date a lot because I do not enjoy going out with so many different people…I do go out on a date it is only because I am quite attracted to that person (in all aspects…not just physically), I think it is of extreme importance to be on the same levels with someone you are to share your life with.i.e intellect, sense of humor and also similar goals in life.these things all add up to admiration, loyalty and friendship.. Can you love this me even though you continue talking to me ??? Bad grammar and spelling are usually the first giveaway in all scammer emails.

I would like to find this so that I may begin the second journey of my life in which i let you know i my profile so please ask me whatever you would like…I think you are someone that is seeking the same as I and so I would love to pursue this friendship with you to see what happens…only if, at the very least, we would both have gained a great course, hopefully more…;-).. For instance the scammers often misspell stupid words.

Linda , Let’s I forget , I wanna let you Know That I would be Living the state for Now cos i heard a Called from The Dr that’s in charge of My dad sickness from The Hospital there In Nigeria That My dad is not really good that he want to see me .. A good example of this is the fake bank alerts email I recently got that had in the subject line this, ” your accuont will be locked.” I delete about at least 10 fake Paypal, e Bay and bank alerts a day. I have included some information about some other common online scams for your protection.

I was so shock when I heard That My dad is not good and Been The Only child of My dad i think i need to see Him cos he’s the one left for me now .. A popular one recently has been “buyer dispute” from e Bay, since I have not used e Bay in about 3 years that was an obvious one for me to catch. Please never send any money to strangers, never login to any place through an email, always find the real bank online or login to e Bay or Paypal at their own websites. The internet is literally open to the entire world and there are many evil people waiting to prey on you and this latest personal scam is a new low of these disgusting crooks! Nigerian Letter Scam This is probably one of the best known online scams but it still manages to get people to part with their hard earned money.

To cut this short , I am On My way to Nigeria Probably In the next 8 – 12hrs cos I have book my plane . Most companies now accept these fake emails by forwarding them to “[email protected]—–” ebay, paypal, Citibank, whatever place you supposedly got the fake email from. Invariably you receive an e-mail, usually written in capital letters and starts out like this: “DEAR SIR/MADAM: I REPRESENT THE RECENTLY DEPOSED MINISTER OF AGRICULTURE FOR NIGERIA, WHO HAS EMBEZZLED 30 MILLION DOLLARS FROM HIS STARVING COUNTRYMEN AND NOW NEEDS TO GET IT OUT OF THE COUNTRY…” The letter says the scammers are seeking an accomplice who will transfer the funds into their account for a cut of the total–usually around 30 percent.
