I received a couple of those, too. Here's the Snopes analysis of how they work.

I didn't read it, too long and i have some things to do.

But i guess once you reply, they say they need to do a bank transfer and alot of your personal infomation, then they wipe you out? Is that correct?

This is slightly related... and kind of interesting.. check out:

Slashdot Article - http://slashdot.org/article.pl?sid=0...&tid=98&tid=99

"A Florida newspaper ran a story yesterday about a local retiree who fell hard for a 419 scam. The story goes into depth on the methods used to play on the target's beliefs and gain his confidence - in this case, the target (who lost $320,000) is still having a hard time accepting that they were thieves. Truly remarkable. "

if nigeria is smarter than the USA, with their no education and poor *** living conditions, they deserve to scam your asses and get away with it.

True, i was reading a story, where a guy tried the same thing, all he got excuses.

Seems like all they can do (The Nigerian Scammers, not the people as a whole) is make excuses
