Stupid Punts!


Examples of the "Nigerian scam" that flood my email box everyday.

Another fake lottery win, I won this very same "lottery" last year.

Amazing, given the fact that I did not enter it; nor is there in fact any such lottery registered in the UK.

They scammer claims that the lottery is based in the UK. However, the phone number given is South African.

If you receive one of these, throw it away; it is a fake.
