There's Plenty of Money in Africa

Interesting! I'm in someone's list again. After not receiving one for so long, two days ago I received an email requesting assistance to help transfer out more than $8 million from Africa for which I get a cut. No diamonds, just money. Sigh!

Do people still fall for this kind of stuff? Apparently, people still do. Several months ago two people fell for it, one in East Malaysia, the other from Australia. Yep, you read right, from Australia.

  6. I've been getting these kinds of letters for over 20 years. First it was by regular post, then fax, then phone, then email.

    I agree - Astonishing that it keeps working.
