    It's not a scam when all the details check out. It's just Twitter giving you a chance to present a counter-notification to DMCA notice they have received. Simply do nothing. Take better care of your accounts next time.

    If you all up all the spam emails I've ever received, I've probably have "won" over $1 trillion dollars lol

    God damn it people. I said nigerian scammers becouse I was talking about the type of the scam, not the country I was reffering to.

    Please kindly edit your thread. It is wrong to conclude that the scam is from Nigeria. Also, not all Nigerians are scammers. There are hard working ones that are earning a legitimate living online.

    Why is everyone so buthurt over the title? "Nigerian scammers" comes from "Nigerian scam". It's a term used to describe a particular type of spam OP was worried about. It would be naive to think it means all Nigerians are scammers. Spanish influenza does not mean everyone in Spain has flu and Russian vodka does not mean all Russians drink it.

    Finally... do you know what happens when you are offended? Absolutely nothing. So get over it.

    Take care of your accounts, I have seen many people go to the slammer or have their accounts suspended just because they were careless and did not take very good care of their privacy.
