I simply cannot understand how anyone can fall for this one. It is not smooth, it is poorly written and so obvious that a child should be suspicious.

And yet, .... This is America !

I expected them to ask for my ATM card information to say it was for verification pourposes, but instead they just want me to send them a one time $1,500 processing fee via Western Union for them to send me the card. lol.

I sure hope nobody falls for this scam, but you know people will. I wish I hadn't replied to them now because my inbox is getting full of every nigerian scam imaginable.
