Top 5 Online Scams-Pretty Funny…

5.  A guy from Nigeria emails you. Evidently you are a prince. You need to wire him $1000 to claim your throne and inherit all the riches of the Nigerian kingdom.

4. A different guy from Nigeria emails you. He inherited like $2.5 million bucks but needs like $2500 to pay escrow or something. Wire him $2500 and he’ll give you 10% of the inheritance.

3. A cousin of the first guy from Nigeria emails you. They’ve “found” your birth certificate. Wire him $1000 to get it.
