So let me get this straight... She says she is not an easy mark... And "who wouldn't send $100 to help out a relative"?... Fair enough... But thats NOT what you did... You re-financed your house... And drained your husbands Retirement Account... Sending 400k over to a scam... That virtually everyone with a computer knows about... You may not be an easy mark... At the very least... You are a moron... Aye yi yi
we wouldnt fall for it

I do not feel sorry for this idiot numbskull for one second (to call her a moron would be an insult to morons). If there ever was a more publicized scam, I don't know what it was.

All I can say is "GREEEEEEEEEEEEEED" will get you every time. Remember, everytime you get something for free, eventually it will cost you double.

But just think, under the Obama redistribution of wealth we will all be giving our hard earned $$$$ away under some scam.
Guess she is just warming up for the Socialist Regime.
If you can fall for right wing Socialist propaganda B.S. it follows that you could just as easily fall for a Nigerian-style scam.

Uhhh, Right Wing and Socialist don't really fit together. Perhaps Left Wing? BTW, I am a long lost relative living in Africa and I need some help getting $22.7 million dollars out of a government program here.....JK, LOL

I cannot believe that there are still people that have not heard about the Nigerians. Personally I wouldn't trust anybody from there. I have seen them operate first hand. Always wanting to get something free or at a discount. Her husband should drop kick her XXX. Yep there is a sucker born every minute. Stupid is too good a word for her....geez, what is her phone number, I want to sell her something, heck anything.....
