    He told me that he deposited this USD$10,8 million dollars in 2003 that he used my name being the only Daughter as the next of kin in depositing the money. And he directed me where to get the documents, he further adviced me to search for a reliable partner in overseas who will assist me retrieve and invest the money overseas. now as a young girl i don,t know what to do with this amount of money and also don,t have any knoladge about GOLD. that is why I am soliciting your kind assistance to help me retrieve this money and to assist me invest the money wisely as it is the only money left for my future.

    Now permit me to ask these few questions:-

    This is sumular to the glut of Chinese eBay sellers "shipping" right from mainland China, Hong Kong, etc. They write in pidgin English projecting that their wares are antique art treasures while selling tourist crap a low item costs with a fortune in shipping. If/when a buyer realises they've been taken they can rocoup only the item costs and they're SOL. With eBay's conivance, they often sport impressive feedback records. Beware!

    This one has been around for a while. It is definitely a scam. They will put a huge carrot in front of you, dangle it for a while then tell you they need x amount of dollars to travel and to be able to get the money out, bribes and the like, then they will give you another type of excuse and take you as many times as they can. Then they dissappear. Most of the victims are from underdeveloped countries.

    Hahaha, the famous/infamous Nigerian Scam. It's almost as old as Adam and Eve. Anyone that still falls for that one has only him/herself to blame.
