Thread Name: BS: A new wrinkle on Nigerian Scams
Subject: RE: BS: A new wrinkle on Nigerian Scams
The newest scam I heard on the news last night; Fellow calls an elderly lady and says, "This is your grandson. Can you guess which one?". After mistaking him for one of them and saying a name, the guy says "I'm in jail in Canada, I need 5200 dollars to get out. Can you send me the money?" She does, and now she's out 5400(if you include the fees). Damn all those who would prey on the poor and gullible. Why don't they go after CEO's?
