  2. Love it the old Nigeria scam. This was even around before e-mail, in the city 20 years ago it used to come in on faxes.

    They ask for your bank details and for an up front fee. If you are lucky this fee is all you lose, if not they empty your account.

    AND YET PEOPLE STILL FALL FOR IT
     
  3. I think you're being paranoid, it looks kosher to me. If you don't fancy getting involved would you mind if I got hold of this good Samaritan?
     
  4. Please do old boy, I am currently unable to access any of my accounts as Receivers are doingsomething with them, if you do get anything out of him, do please PM me though!
