Re: One born every minute

It amazes me just how gullible some people are. There was a woman on TV recently who got conned out of £ thousands by one of those romance scammers based in Nigeria and when she discovered it was a scam she paid thousands more to a "Nigerian private investigator" aiming to get her money back... of course it was just another scam.

Still we shouldn't victim blame. One day I may become senile and fall foul to "obvious scams". Not everyone is as cynical and mistrusting as me. The fault rests 100% with the scammers.
