The Hon. Mekwli T. Motamba Has a Business Offer For You

Whenever I get an email from a former Nigerian Oil Ministry official promising to let me in on a multi-million dollar tax scam, I wonder, does anyone ever fall for this? Would anyone with enough money to interest the scammers be stupid enough to get ripped off? I would have though no, but according to the San Francisco Chronicle, I’d be wrong. The Secret Service went after 250 individuals last year for pulling the "Nigerian advance fee scheme" on victims whose losses totaled over $85 million. That’s a lot of greedy, stupid people with money to burn.
