    I read that this scam is actually one of the leading industries in Nigeria.

    Hate to say this, but anyone dumb enough to actually partake in such a scheme deserves to get ripped off. It's one thing for someone to rummage through your mail for your credit card number/SSN, but quite another to *voluntarily* give someone else money for a get-rick quick scheme. Glad someone finally gave those frauds a taste of their own medicine!

    Is that on the Pacific side of Nebraska, or the Atlantic side?

    I need more details before I come look at the property, as I have to wear my banana outfit, and hop & clap in the meantime.

    Isn't it kinda funny in a sick way how he was like 'yeah, i had to
    kill my wife and flee the country' and the response was like 'yeah,
    I understand' basically? Kinda grossly humerous. ;)

    Wow, that was a good read - makes me want to go out and do the same thing, almost.

    The saddest thing is that they actually do get peoples money. Very sad. Nice to see a little turn about - must have had them both in a bit of a frenzy at one point.

    D :D

    OK, Royal Pineapple. I'm going to beat Nipsy and buy your great beachfront property. I know a good deal when I see one. Here's my passport:

    Let's meet at an obscure location: 263 Prinsengracht in the center of Amsterdam:
