Nigeria is the source of all the really creepy spam mail too that offers millions if you help transfer money. They will even respond and write back and forth to your e-mail address!! Really freaky shiz!

I am being targeted by one because I replied saying nothing more than 419!

I got the letter too, How do they get this information any way. a month ago I got a phone call from a foreigner saying I won $250.000 in cash and a new mercedes,Right away I thought my husband was playing a joke on me, I asked the guy was my ol'man standing there? He said ,No I don't know him, anyway he said I was to send money to release the car from customs port of entry in Miami Fla, My husband was headed to point of entry to pick up plants for the trucking co he works for. I told the guy I would come down to miami, meet my husband and we would pick up the car and the money, He hung up!!!
This is unreal.. The check I got was from att metrology services in washington state. There actually is such a company, and the check looks real...Hope no one falls for this scam...and I hope they catch these crooks...

I think there are many thousands of Nigerians trying this scam because it works so well on the ignorant. I love playing with them and sending them all over to collect the money.

I had a friend of mine fall for this scam when she tried to sell her car on a popular internet board. She received several money orders, and was told to cash them, send some back to cover the costs of the person who was going to pick the car up, and keep the rest. The poor girl's mother put them in her bank account, handed her daughter the cash, and 4 days later found out she was bilked out of almost $5,000.

Insane. But she learned her lesson- screw me once, shame on you. Screw me twice, shame on me.

I am one of the owners of ATT Metrology and this is a real company and we are not part of this horrible scam. We are the victims as well as everyone who recieved this letter. PLEASE do not cash these checks, they will bounce and the only one that will benefit will be the crooks that sent out this letter and forged checks with our name on them.

I feel horrible that we are involved and I hope that no one falls for this scam..
