I met a Nigerian scammer in a chat room once. "She" had a picture of an old lady in a hospital bed with tubes coming out of her nose. "She" told
me that she wanted to use her husband's savings to start a foundation to help orphans. So she gave me her email, and I had to email this "doctor,"
the doctor then gave me his phone number. Still no money involved either way, and I was getting really suspicious by this point, so I did some
research and found a website about Nigerian scamming. I checked the number they gave me, and sure enough, the international code was for NIGERIA!
I then contacted the FBI and made out a report that they probably just filed away somewhere. Recently I heard some official of Nigeria saying to blame
the victims, and while the victims are stupid, so is the Nigerian scam.
