Is this from the Onion?
No its from an actual newspaper
An emotional John Rempel tells his story of how he has lost $150,000 of the family's money to a Nigerian scam.
"Heeeeeyyyyyyyyyyy Uncle Rico, can I borrow $55,000? I'll pay you back once this kind nigerian fellow deposits some money into my account..."
apparently this is a website about messing with nigerian email scammers
What a dumb ass, this is what you do
I was watching a special talking about how many people actually believe this shit and actually send out there bank info, or money. us postal intercepts thousands a day.
And I guess they just do it from like coffee shop internet cafes.
Stupid fuck it serves him right
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.
not as bad as the chick that got scammed for about 500 000 thousand! lol she got fucked hard.... her story is priceless

and to be honest... this stupid whore deserved it just for being so fucking stupid....
her husband should have grown some balls and beat the shit out of her before she gave all his money away
I think anyone stupid enough to fall for this shit deserves it.
five hundred thousand thousand
500,000 thousand = 11ty

"I'm not a sucker."
You love women so much.
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
Holy shit, look at the pics on that 419eater site, the poses they make the scammers do are awesome
There's a pic of a guy holding a glass of orange juice with a shoe on his head, that one's from OT.
