Thanks for the info. I keep getting mail with a check for $1,999 toward my next cruise....ha ha and if I get one more call about how they are going to reduce my credit card interest (I never have a balance), I'm going to tear my phone from the wall. What is sad, is that so many people fall for these scams. I have a neighbor who is still waiting for his millions from the middle east, I keep telling me it was a scam and he doesn't believe me. I guess a sucker is born every day.

I actually have a file of emails promising me millions if I will help get money out of Iraq, Nigeria, Afghanistan, etc. Some of the stuff is so ludicrous and badly written it borders on the surreal. The sad part is that people have actually been murdered when they got sucked in so deep that they flew overseas to meet with the scammers. In 1999, Norwegian millionaire--a millionaire!--who fell for the con, Kjetil Moe, was lured to South Africa by scam artists, and murdered. According to a U.S. State Department report, over fifteen persons between 1992 and 1995, including one U.S. citizen, have been murdered in Nigeria following-through on advance-fee frauds. At least the people promising free cruises aren't likely to kill us...
