Mickey191 BS: Nigerian scammers arrested (21) RE: BS: Nigerian scammers arrested 04 Oct 07

Just this week a new campaign on U.S. TV depicts a very seedy looking guy approaching a gentlemen in a diner. The whole spiel "I have millions that I want to share with you" -- the innocent says calmly:"Get Lost." The voice over warns that if offered this kind of deal on the internet-FLEE!

I hope people listen.

I got an email purporting to be from Chase Manhattan Bank telling that someone overseas has accessed my acc't. They want to help me, their "Valued Customer," protect my money. The follow-up is THE most legit looking form I've seen. This asks for every bit of private info. imaginable. The page is even encrypted. I could really understand someone falling for this.

One problem: I've Never been a Chase Customer. BEWARE of this one!
