Wait. How do I get the 5 million?

I didnt get any PM and I feel left out. You would think these scammers would get someone with a better understanding of the language.

Its a tactic that has been used by mostly Nigerian scammers for years. Using the PM system of message boards to contact members. Mining contact data from forum memberlists. Sometimes when members list various chat services links in their profile, such as Yahoo Messenger, Google Messenger or Skype the scammers will contact them through those.

That's really funny, and I get it. However, responding to scam/spam verifies that your email is active and that you are interested ... and both make your email more valuable.

Ratting them out to their email provider is a good way to make life a little more difficult for them. :wink:
