The Nigerian Scam

Buyer BEWARE!! Hi Everybody,
   The following is a classic example of the "Nigerian Scam", but remember, it can claim to be from a man or a woman, and it can appear to come from ANY country.

At some point, the victim is asked to pay up front an Advance Fee of some sort, be it an "Advance Fee", "Transfer Tax", "Performance Bond", or to extend credit, grant COD privileges, whatever. If the victim pays the Fee, there are many "Complications" which require still more advance payments until the victim either quits, runs out of money, or both. If the victim extends credit etc. he may also pay such fees ("nerfund" etc.), and then he is stiffed with NO Effective Recourse. There is a US government task force working on this problem.. If you want to read a LOT more about it, click HERE. Or, read THIS one, from our OWN US Postal Service.

The following email was sent to ME, a cartoon character, at the address "Plowgirlie" (Which I happened to use ONCE as a joke). THAT should tell you something about how legitimate the whole thing is, right THERE!!

    So..... If you receive anything that even REMOTELY resembles this, it is a SCAM. Do NOT respond to it!!
