Well, you can say it, how stupid are you, well pretty stupid, and I imagine many other people are gonna screw up too.

Well I read my hotmail account email through Outlook Express, and I was messing around with the secure encryption blah blah blah earlier this day. So... I get an email from some guy, that Im expecting to be about something that am trying to buy/sell. The email has the sign in screen that hotmail has. So I, not thinking, "think" oh this must be because I messed around with the Outlook stuff, I must need to put my password in. The second I push send, I realize how stupid I am. This guy must have just copied the html code from the hotmail sign in page and changed the location that the password field sends the inputted text to. That SOB is trying to steal my passowd, and stupid me just gave it to him. Well I went and changed my password on hotmail (damn I liked that password too), and then sent him a few more "passwords" to read. Then I decided to change all my passwords. Well when I signed onto to paypal, there was a big warning about the same thing. Apparently someone had recently tried the same stunt with paypal accounts.

Its a pretty good trick, I have to admit, most non-computer literate people wouldn't think twice to signing in again. And if that email address is linked to your paypal or ebay account, and if worse you have the same password on all accounts, then youd be screwed.
Just letting people be aware. Dont be stupid like me.

Make it idiot-proof, and someone will make a better idiot

Thank GOD I don't have to worry about scams like this anymore!
I'll have more money then I know what to do with.
I'm getting 25 million dollars from a guy in Nigeria!

Yup! I just have to give him my bank account info and he's transferring the funds to my account!
Seems he's in a bit of a jam over in Nigeria and needs me to help him out.

How lucky am I that out of all the people in the WORLD he picked ME to do this transfer!

This is what I got

Dear Friend,

Please I am sending this letter to you through this medium, with
heartfelt hope that you will sincerely respond passionately to my urgent cry and need for your assistance.

I am afraid you may see this letter as one of the numerous scam emails that is floating all over the internet this days, but please kindly find out if what I am telling you herein is the truth or not.

I am Mrs. Ngozi D. Okadigbo, the wife of late chief Chuba Okadigbo the
former senate president of the Federal Republic of Nigeria and also
renowned businessman and a devoted Christian, whom we lost, couple of
weeks ago as a result of political struggle in the country at present.

Since the death of my husband, I have been highly disturbed mentally,
psychologically and physically. In fact, the death of my husband has
affected me greatly, the worst of it all is that barely one week after
his death, my husband's family members have been disturbing and
compounding my present sober mood, demanding that I should declare all
my husband's assets and surrender his entire bank accounts to them.

Being a young widow with sons and daughters, I have considered it
right to secure my future and that of my surviving children with my
husband's assets as it is done else where in the world.


This is why I have decided to contact you, for you to assist me receive
the sum of US$27.5 Million which my husband secretly deposited in a
Private Trust Firm in Europe for safe-keeping few months before his
untimely death.

Already, I have declared my entire late husband's local accounts to them, for me to have peace of mind and start a new life all over again, but they still persist that I have not surrendered everything to them yet.

I am contacting you through this medium specifically for you to act as my late husband's Foreign Associate who can go to the Trust Firm and retrieve the consignment of the funds with all documents of deposit which I will give to you.

Though this message would have been sent to you via surface mail, but
for the worldwide scare of Anthrax and delays. Hence, I decided to
contact you via your email address. I want you to act fast because I
want to join you as soon as you have secured the money, to ease this
mental and psychological depression which I am experiencing since the
death of my husband. I equally want you to assist my children and I in acquiring a residence permit in your country, to enable us have hope and guarantee for a permanent future.

On receipt of your response, I will send you all the documents of the
deposited funds so you can make arrangement to go to the Trust Firm and
secure the money with my authorization.

Please contact me immediately because of the confidentiality required to enable me give you further clarifications. Please do not give this
information to any body so as to avoid my late husband's relatives from
knowing about this development.

My private E-mail to receive all correspondence:
okadigbo@rediff.com

God Bless You For Your Co-operation

I remain Yours Faithfully,

Mrs. Ngozi .D.Okadigbo.

I just read about some 70 year old guy that got taken for a few hundred grand with this scam. How could anyone be so f-ing stupid!?!?
They kept telling him to send more and more money over to them. They said they needed it to make the transfer. It went on for TWO YEARS! He sent them all he had and even went to Nigeria looking for the guy.
Lucky he didn't end up dead. What a dope.
