Nigerian scam artists.

Got this in the post the other day… and it made me wonder just what sort of idiots these scam artists think we are? Just *who* in their right minds would respond to a letter that ‘out of the blue’ tells you you suddenly own $800,000? Just *who* in their right minds would send off so much personal information *including* a scan of an ID card? Clearly subtlety isn’t a strong point!!

You may ask who would be so stupid yet people *do* respond to these things and not only do they respond… but they even send money to them as well as all their personal details! Hundreds of thousands of dollars are transferred to these sharks yearly by gullible people who can’t believe their luck!

For these scammers Xmas comes many times a year. Beware folks, that old adage runs true. If it seems to good to be true… it probably is!
