this scam started out of Nigeria back in the early 90's...typically sent over the fax machines...back then they actually did a lot of the paperwork up front without asking for a dime or account numbers, but requested that someone travel there to sign off on the papers, but guess what, they were kidnapping those who traveled there and would request a ransom...it was on 60 minutes a few years ago, and quite a few fell for it...it appeared much more legitimate (to those looking for a quick get rich plan)...

This was on 60 Minutes a Few Months Ago.

They have SCAMMED millions of dollars instead of giving millions of dollars

ya know it might be kind of fun to send bakc areply from a hotmail accoutn and then setup a dummy bank account with $20 in it and see what they do

might be worth the $20 to call thier bluff.....
