Definite scam.  i've seen similar messages.  It's the typical Nigerian scam.  You'd think they would they would realize that everyone knows about them by now. :)

Problem is, not everyone does know.  There are still people who fall for it, enough to lose their life savings.

Perhaps those of us who do know or are part of a place like HAF who can find out, should post these things on FB or somewhere so that others who may not have an avenue to know can be made aware and then they can spread to their families.  Especially to the elderly who don't use computers.

I had two messages from them also.  Definitely a scam, it sounds exactly like all the other scam messages I've gotten.

You name it, I've probably seen it. Between all the "lottery" winnings, inheritance money, and supposed purchases of my stuff, I should be a millionaire by now. And now that we are getting older, the telephone scams are starting that target seniors.
