    An emotional John Rempel tells his story of how he has lost $150,000 of the family's money to a Nigerian scam.

    I think this is my favorite line "Then he got an e-mail from a government department — he’s not sure which country — saying he owed $250,000 on tax on his inheritance. Rempel spoke to his contact, who told him they negotiated the fee down to $25,000."

    Negotiating taxes ftw!

    Apparently it's not uncommon for older people to walk into a bank and ask for a draft made out to King Majumbo or whatever.

    I was surprised to find that out.

    I almolst fell for a facebook scam from Nigeria. A guy messaged me about an estate or something that had to be settled because a foreign relative of mine had died and I was the only one of his relatives he could get in touch with. I googled it though.

    I like in the video they highlight a portion and say, "note the misspelling of minutes". In the same sentence, Washington is spelled "Washinton", which they don't note :kekeke:
