Have you ever been tempted by one of the following emails??? Or a similar one??? You know you have! I'll bet some of you even believed them and for that I really do understand your pain, financial loss, humiliation, and downright anger. This is the American dream...to win a lottery, to inherit a fortune from a long lost relative. Unfortunately, these shysters know it! 99.999% of these come from out of the country. But they have Gmail addresses, Yahoo addresses.
The very first one I received caught me off guard. Wow! Did it seem legitimate! It stated that I had won a Google International Contest, prize winner drawn from Google email addresses! I didn't fall for it, but my sister-in-law got caught on the line for one originating in Nigeria!
Excitement zipped through the phone line when she called me to tell me the good news! I pleaded with her not to go ahead with it. I had recently seen a tv newsmagazine special about these cons coming from Nigeria. But it was too late. She was too far gone with the thought of being rich and she and her husband had already sent the money out to have the prize courier-delivered to them. All in all she lost about $6000-at least that's all she would admit to. So please let this be a warning!
