    You forgot to add that it was a lottery that chose him randomly and to claim the prize he will have to send all of his personal information and $1000 USD for processing fees.

    Every time I've gone to sold a 'Berry on eBay - I get nailed by one of these guys - and they always have a Yahoo email.

    I always wind up coming back here and selling them - much safer

    This is so lame...this shouldn't be found on here. And people should be judged by contents and not email addresses. Plus there's more scam from the states and other places than Nigeria so don't know why it's titled Nigerian scam. I look out for everyone, even Americans.

    Dear ramin mayar,

    I heard about you from a close friend. I have a big hill of precious beans that I am selling at a really cheap price just to you. It is valued at over $1,000,000 USD but I can sell it to you for only$100,000 USD. Please send all of your personal information in advance to start the paperwork and send moneygram to me. My email is youcantrustme@gmail.com. Do not pay attention to these types of offers if they send yahoo emails. They are fake. Mine is real because I use a gmail account.

    Sincerely,
    3hb78ftg

    Yes I am......does that make you happy? I only suggested you put better things on here. Constructive things, mainly about the devices, etc.... and if you wanna talk about scams, make it constructive. I see ur fans are already getting excited too cos you've decided to label me one simply cos I've advised that you start appropriate posts or modify them. Call me what you like, id enjoy watching you male fools of yourselves like you're having a ** at the scammers too.

    Thanks for your suggestions. But I do want to point out that this was posted in the Off Topics section. If you read the rules for OT that are posted at the top of the page you will see this thread is an appropriate topic.

    He's trying to tell you that he's not Nigerian so that you will trust him.
