Culled from the correspondence. Make of it what you will.

It's a new twist but, supposedly I was one of seven people who won this world lotto which I entered so many contests when I first got my computer ,who can keep track ,So I checked out the website which gave me a link to a very real looking financial institution.I must admit it had me fooled until my sister happened to go online and check out the new scams and guess what scam o rama saved me 15 hundred dollars U.S. and alot of embaressment.

Theses guys are really "Special"...i cant believe there are actually people in this country that would actually fall for this or ANY computer nonsense! Americans must really be looked at as some easy picks! Hahahaaaa

I almost fell for this bull, but then I found your site;-)

Received this email, didn't believe it for one second.

I was thinking about calling her before I saw your web-site.
I don't think I would have gone through with it if I had checked it out a little more, but thanks.

Amazing how quickly it's revealed to be a scam
when one plugs in the relevant names into a search engine....

I did some research on the subject matter and found it to all be true and timely.
I couldn't decide if I should contact the FBI or keep it quiet to avoid putting my family in potential danger.
Then my friend laughed at me and snapped me back to my senses.

How anyone could be taken in I do not understand.

...guess what... we were on here to make our travel arrangements. THANK YOU...
I must admit we were extremely let down as I had just convinced my wife
I have to make this trip just a couple months before our first child is due to be born...

I can't believe people are still falling for this.

It almost had me going there for a minute!
A new friend in Nigeria sent me a link to your site and cleared it up for me.
