You guys are paranoid, you just have to use common sense when approached by people like this. If I was as paranoid as you guys I would have missed out on the fortune I am to split with a Nigerian prince. Yes it cost me several hundred dollars to help get his funds released but when they transfer my half of the money I will never have to work again.

That same Nigerian Prince called me also. I declined him. After reading your account I regret having done so. Maybe you could provide me a contact address so as I may remake contact with his Royal Highness.

Unfortunately, extremely poor English grammar doesn't put up the warning sign like it used to. We can't go by that like we did in the old days.

With people texting so much today, and making all sorts of spelling mistakes, and not knowing proper punctuation and proper English not being taught in the public schools, at least 70% of Americans under the age of 30 today are 'English' speaking idiots. They are unintelligible and unintelligent and good luck trying to follow their line of thinking.

The latest is a person who said that they will pay full price but I cannot contact them directly because they are in basic training in Georgia. However, they will promptly answer all e-mails.

Then I get the following e-mail:

I suggest we hire an inspector to appraise/inspect and confirm the legitimacy of ownership so as to report accordingly before we can proceed to making payment.
JandT is an international company and have worked with them in a couples of times, an agent close to you will be assigned to carry out the inspection.
The cost of the inspection to cover transportation, hotel and other expenses should be around $400 which i suggest should be split and be paid by the both of us at $200 each so as to limit the cost of risk incase the seller is not legit or the condition of the advert is not as good as claim by the seller.
the seller will be fully reimbursed and full payment would be made available to the seller same day after inspection.
i am willing to sign a contract if need be and the only reason i will not proceed to payment after inspection is if the condition is not as good as advertised.
let me know if you will be willing to split the inspection cost and if you will like to proceed by sending me your full name and inspection address to be forwarded to the inspector from JandT Inc. to contact you on best inspection date and time.
Thanks


At first, while reading through the poor English, I thought that most of what he said made sense. But I do have a skeptical side. I looked but could not find JandT Inc. on the Internet. So I turned the tables. I sent this guy information for a legitimate appraiser and said that he should send $300 (his share) to the appraiser to get the ball rolling.

This is probably not the first scam that I'll be offered but I thought that I would share it so others would be prepared for anything similar.
If any deal seems too complicated just stay away....
You are selling an item, an any potential buyer asks for money..stay away. Money should only go one way..from the buyer to the seller.

He may have a brother who also needs help getting the royal trust funds released. It's really simple for such a huge return. You just send money by western union to the account number they will give you and then you sit back and WAIT for the millions to start rolling in. I'm having trouble contacting him at the moment because of the poor communications equipment in Nigeria. I've been super excited for the last three years WAITING on my funds to arrive. You just have to read between the lines and use your head or you miss out on life's opportunities.
