If you bite, they won’t stop at just getting your account info. They will
invite you to that country (for a small fee); folks have actually gone!
Then, their government will bust you, and you’l have to pay to get out.
I wonder if the African government really isn’t sending these
solicitation emails out to try and extort money from foreign
If I were running the government of a country whose currency wasn’t
worth the paper it was printed on … I might try a tactic like this
to bring valuable US dollars into the country …
Uh, Dossy, do you have any specific reason to speculate this way, or
are you just in the mood to make unsubstantiated conjecture? I’ve
never heard anything about government complicity in anything I’ve
read on the subject, including the brief by the Internet Fraud
Complaint Center. (http://www1.ifccfbi.gov/strategy/nls.asp)
Also, there really isn’t such a thing as “the African government”.
There’s more than one government there. It’s a whole continent, you
