  • FAIL! Woman out $400K to 'Nigerian scam'

    SWEET HOME, Ore. – Janella Spears doesn’t think she’s a sucker or an easy mark.

    Besides her work as a registered nurse, Spears – no relation to the well-known pop star – also teaches CPR and is a reverend who has married many couples. She also communicates with lightning-fast sign language with her hearing-impaired husband.

    So how did this otherwise lucid, intelligent woman end up sending nearly half a million dollars to a bunch of con artists running what has to be one of the best-known Internet scams in the world?

    It just hurts to read it...

              It's bad enough to just be an idiot. But it's a whole lot worse to be a greedy idiot.

                        I have seen in my email, too. I click report spam all the time. Don't trust people in email asking for ATM lost data password, child loss parents will give you a million of dollars if child pass college after 19 years old, many things are trick you that's a bull of lie. People are crazy outside country or even in USA, too. Also be careful They know how to get bank logo from your real bank look alike internet email. They ask for account number and get a new free checking book or etc.. DON'T REPLY to them!! Call your bank first before suspicous. I had once I knew it was fake. I reported my email forward to my bank email for scam.


                        PS- last year one young lady told me I got email I think I won lotto in email. I laughed I told her that's a FAKE! Don't reply to them. She said I didn't know that! Oh man! LOL!
