They must be getting some replies, or fraud wouldn't be the #1 industry in Nigeria! One person emailed me an "e-check" for $2000, and all I had to do is print it and put it in my bank, then send them $500!! A couple of days later, another person IM'd me, and started this story about needing money to get back home etc, etc, and I offered to send them the e-check, and I never heard from either of them again!

They sent out 23 pm's but most were retracted via the admin panel. I've since banned them forever. In the future, please PM me with the person's PM and userid. Thanks, rg.
