419 scam claims another foolish person

An Oregon woman mortgaged her house and wiped out her husband’s retirement fund due to the same old Nigerian scam.  They lost $400,000.  Even the bank and the FBI begged her not to continue sending money, but she just wanted to believe.  So sad, and yet, what was this woman thinking? Here’s another article I found on the incident.

Interview with the victim Janella Spears below.

    It’s sad when people lose their money to these crooks. If you don’t know about it already, there’s a hilarious website that ‘scam-baits’ these fraudsters into sending them money and pictures in funny poses from Nigeria! I had a few good laughs. http://www.419eater.com.
