    I just got one of these from the "United Nations Sweepstakes", seems I've won several million Euros!


    It's rare when I get these things anymore after leaving AOL but I can't believe people anywhere fall for them.

    My fiancee went through somewhat of the same deal trying to buy a puppy online through a Craigslist seller. The seller was using a picture which we later found elsewhere on the web posted by the REAL seller.
    The guy was in Nigeria and pretended to be a Catholic man on a mission trip with a dog that couldnt take the heat there. He even talked to us on the phone internationally. Needless to say we did some research and discovered his real email and the whole scam issue had been used before and was word for word exactly what he was doing to us. These scammers tell you to send cashiers check and then they will send the puppy... Well be bugged out on him and I had some fun with him pretending to be a new buyer and sending him some harassing emails. Too bad that's the worst I could do to him...

    Lol, Halt, they made a lot of typos. For example, they used vane instead of vain, $500,00.00, no commas, etc.

    How you can not want our US MINT dollars when we are NIGERIA speak english very well it is obvious we do not scam to want to steal from anyone but only to help you transfer our money to your ATM card using FBI and GOVERNMENT. Official bank institute for sending the ATM to you is for real and true...

    Seriously though, does stuff like this ever really work?
