Nigerian Spam alert

Postby divea » 04 Apr 2012, 19:37

Breezon is sending PMs for the classic money scam.

I am posting part of the PM

Please I need your assistance in the following ways:
1. To help me get this money out of the bank and invest it in your country.
2. To help me to come over to your country to continue with my education.
3. To stand as my guardian and business partner until I am out of school to handle any investment.
If you can help me with these three things,
I am promising you 15% of the total money

1. To help me get this money out of the bank and invest it in your country.
2. To help me to come over to your country to continue with my education.
3. To stand as my guardian and business partner until I am out of school to handle any investment.
If you can help me with these three things,
I am promising you 15% of the total money as soon as you receive the money in any account of your choice. Please you can contact me with my private email becuase i will not have time to reply into the site(kenthassan@yahoo.com)
Your suggestions and ideas will be highly valued. I am waiting to hear from you.
Yours truly

Ok, you send me the money via Western Union ... the moment you arrive I'll deposit the money in a bank account of your choice and keep the 15% ... :ohreally:

You guys are so cynical. What's to say that these chaps aren't offering a fantastic service? I give up sometimes :aiyo:

Damn, I nearly fell for it too. Was looking forward to making a mint and making love with a girl named 'Kent'.

Thanks all, and to those who reported the PMs (there's a "!" link at top right of a PM if you want to report one.) We're trying to develop ways to keep spammers off the boards.

I've been listening to the radio show which they did before this (dunno if you've ever heard it) and the Nigel Saladu set up was on last nights episode. The world works in mysterious ways!
There are millions of people in the world. And none of those people is an extra. They're all leads in their own stories.

If you lose one sense, your other senses are enhanced. That's why people with no sense of humour have an increased sense of self-importance.
