Email from Libya
I got an email from a woman in Libya who offered to give me 35% of thirteen million dollars if I will act as her representative with the bank to handle these funds which were her late husband's. Yeah, right.
I know people are greedy, but this is just plain stupid to think that a perfect stranger would offer them money. Where is their common sense?
I am tempted to string her along to see how much money I will have to pony up to get the money she promised me. LOL
Is there a place to report these scams to prevent others being taken advantage of? The sad thing is that there doesn't seem to be a way to trace these thieves after the fact. Some local people were taken in by the lottery scam that said they won a lottery and they needed to send money to get the funds. You'd think that the fact that they'd never entered a lottery would give them pause, but no, they fell for it.
