The Scam that won't go away ...

There's a new variant of the Nigerian scam circulating. This time with the subject heading: PARTNERSHIP REQUIRED. The scam works like this. You get an email from someone in an African country asking you to help them move millions of dollars which are trapped in the country since a recent coup. The payoff is the guarantee that you will receive a percentage of the money which you can move through your own bank account. Almost immediately, you will receive requests for sudden "transfer fees" and "payoffs." One user who fell for the scam was actually kidnapped when requested to fly to the African continent with a cashier's check.

If you get the Nigerian Scam via email, forward the email WITH HEADERS to the SECRET SERVICE at:
