    Wow! Seriously?? I just got this email and was quite amused. Apparently, the Nigerian scams have been upgraded. It's no longer a Gizillion dollar inheritance, etc, etc. It's now a much more believable $900,000 ATM Card in my name! HAHAHAHA! Do people seriously fall for this complete crap? Obviously, somebody must be falling for this if they keep sending out these emails.

    Yes, people do fall for them. They are mostly noobs with little internet experience.

    I recently heard someone in Denmark being fooled by 419 scam in Hong Kong. Seems like Nigerians will take their scam with them whereever they travel eh? lol

    Dude...

    That sounds like a once in a lifetime opportunity, you should jump on that before it's too late.

    You KNOW it's legitimate because it's sent from LAGOS NIGERIA and the official email is a .hk.

    I heard about one lady who fell for this shit...She contacted the "secretary" who asked her to send them certain amount of money so they could process the transfer...

    The poor thing sent several thousands of dollars across...They actually reverted back to her a few weeks later and asked her to send even more money!...Which she did! Her thinking was that she's already invested in it, might as well go for it all the way..Anyway, they were telling her that the transfer was almost complete...

    I think, this went on for several months. In the end, she ended up losing tens of thousands of dollars..

    Hee! Last I heard, she was trawling around at dp trying to earn her money back...
