Thread Name: BS: All the Scams Aren't in Nigeria
Subject: RE: BS: All the Scams Aren't in Nigeria
While not as amusing as Sandra in Sydney's email or as enticing as the hot/sexy Russian/Asian ladies, a report in my local paper is hard to believe. A couple of scammers had been prosecuted for trying to defraud an elderly man by telling him that the bank notes in his bank account had been switched for fake ones and he must withdraw the money and give the caller the serial numbers, and that a courier would then come to collect them. Fortunately a neighbour prevented him from giving away his money, but would anyone really believe that the money in a bank account was made up of actual identifiable notes?
