    So I have received an IM on AIM from someone while I was away. This is exactly how it reads:

    I'm guessing that "Nigerian Scam" has moved to messengers now eh.

    Just giving you guys the heads up since I haven't seen anyone talking about this here yet.

    Those Nigerian's try very hard to cheat everybody. The problem is the Nigerian government will not help any other country prosecute the scammers.
