  • Wasn't there a web site that was devoted to stringing these guys along and getting them to humiliate themselves? I seem to recall they told one guy that he had to convert to their religion before they could send him the money and they asked him to send photos of himself performing various acts as proof.

  • Yo, this is a scam - it sounds too easy to be real, wake up if think some guy you have never heard of - an ocean away, in a crime ridden area, known for scams, will promise you a fortune if he will come thru and just give you $15M, this guy sent me the same email with my family last name in it's place, the wife and kids name were the same, the email word for word was sent to me, he wanted my bank info and address, his phone number was bogus too, it would be nice to get this kind of $ so we want to believe it, but in reality people who do this kind of scam need to have legal reprocussions pressed against them for feeding off the people who may feed into it and have serious punishment - yes you Mr. Usman Johnson(U.S. man/ Johnson - Generric US name!) come on not all of us are that stupid, I hope all people who you sent that letter to read this and you need to not do it again - get a real job and quit trying to scam people out of their money - go make your own money in an honest manner!
