Nigeria Ain’t Just a Country in AfricaJanuary 15th, 2007 by josh farley
In some ways, word of the “Nigerian Scam” — known technically as an “advanced fee fraud scam” — may seem like old news.
Unfortunately, people are still falling for like-minded schemes. A story in today’s (Monday) Kitsap Sun tells a few local stories of the scams, including ones that even targeted Bremerton detectives.
The detectives, of course, didn’t fall for it.
The Federal Trade Commission offers useful words of wisdom on the topic as well.
Have you ever been a victim? Do you receive these kinds of scams? Feel free to share your stories below.
