|Thanks Kelli, some great examples there!|
|I wonder who you would get if you called those telephone numbers that they list?
Another Day in Paradise!
|Now wouldn't that make them easy to catch by the police if they trace the phone numbers? Are the scammers that stupid? Or are they disposable cell phone numbers?
Another Day in Paradise!
|Who polices NIGERIA!!?|
|Ya got a point there, Jon.
But isn't there international police trying to catch these scammers? I can't believe that Nigeria doesn't have to answer to the rest of the world for allowing these kind of scams to continue?
Another Day in Paradise!
