They are just smart enough to avoid meeting up in a parking lot at the edge of town…

I have an acquaintance who is from Nigeria. She told me they teach college courses there on how to rip off Americans.

What a coincidence! I wonder if she is related to this prince I recently learned about from Nigeria. Seems he passed away recently (sadly) leaving an estate of U.S. $50 million. The email I received said that all I need to do is …

Also be aware that sending money via Zelle or Venmo is like handing someone cash. You have absolutely zero opportunity to cancel the payment.

Hi, I am following up with the police in Orange VA on this scam. The detective is working to track these criminals down to prosecute them. The detective called me earlier this week. The detective is making headway. If you have been ripped of by Huff or anyone else using the same m.o. Like Rob in Kansas and would be willing to testify and work with the police this would be a big help. The detective let me know quite a bit and this is definitely wide spread. If you got ripped off on this scam let me know via pm. I can connect you with the proper police. The police are aware these a-holes are operating on several forums. To me this is about much more than money. I want to try to get a few of these a-holes convicted. Any help appreciated. It is good for us all.

I don't trust anyone that has joined recently. Also, I always look at the posts. Basically to see if there is anything substantial talked about.

Just forward it to "Bill" Forum Owner, and he will promptly delete the account. I've done it many times in the past couple years. Bill acts quickly once reported.
