So, as we are on animanga site and are all "shippers" anyway... I suggest, let's ship Nigerian Prince and Tina!

I'm positive they will make ideal couple!...

(as long as x-Cellar_Door-x doesn't mind of course, I mean don't want my shipping interfer with his happiness! jk :))

i feel so unlucky, i've never gotten any kind of mail that says i have won lottery's that i have never entered or even exist.
I guess all the Nigerian Princes and Random distant relatives that happened to be rich and just passed away hate me

Where is all the love at? i only got 1 mail in my spam folder and gmail deleted it along time ago

"betray my confidence" they love using this phrase a lot..... what I find funny is that they always use a personal email address plus they like to say something about me being upper class or rich... pfft if I so rich where the hell is all this money you say I have, because I sure as hell can't find it (ノ#-_-)ノ

Fun fact: Some people actually see it as a challenge to reply to these kind of mails and waste the scammer's time. It's called scam baiting. Although I don't have the guts nor the motivation to do it.
Anyways, I have found a community where people share their scam baiting story. It's really funny to see how stupid those scammers are.

I use to have a false email that I would try to get as much spam as possible, I would even have a false Identity and spoof them, I think the people at the library hated me because I would use their computers to do it

At one time I got so many I called my dad and said "Why do we have so many family members dying in Africa and leaving me gold and uranium mines?"

Not me. I have been spammed in my e-mail by someone who says that I have an inheritance and that to claim it, I would have to make a trip to Nigeria. But as far as here by some prince, nothing.

Yes I got the one that the original poster got, I used the internet to check out if the email was legit or a scam.
It's a very well known scam that the 23 year old Tina from Libya tries to convince you that both her parents were killed and her dad's savings of 3.5 million dollars is at risk and sakes for you to retrieve it, she promises you 20% of that profit if you send her your bank details so that she can collect her money and will ask for you to be her foreign pen pal as she quickly removes your well earned cash from your wallet.
Don't reply to her message, delete it and move on with your lives.

Huuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuh lol

and If i was you i'd ignore that. I got a message a few months ago from some lady in africa who needed me to "Hold" her money in my back account. It was like 150,000 and she needed me to use 25,000 to send back to her for her house or something. It was a back and forth msg thing. I kept telling her she was more than welcome to send me the money but she wanted my account number AND my SSN and i was like noooooooo just send it lol.
If anything it could of ended nasty but she stopped messaging me


I got the same message. Just deleted as soon as I read it.

Back then, Kurosagi (jdrama) was being shown in CR.
Thanks to it and CR, I learned about scams and deceptions.

And also, Welcome to NHK. I learned about the pyramid scheme.



Who haven't it thought CR can be a good source of learning?
