A woman in Bismark, North Dakota wired $850 to a man to get two Yorkshire terrier puppies from a missionary named “Jack Frazier Sneed” in Nigeria. Ironically, she initially found the classified ad in the same newspaper that wrote the article about the dilemma (they made it very clear how email-oriented the scam was).
"I didn't think they'd use puppies," she said.
Speaking of Nigerians, I just got this email from one and this might be my last blog post since it turns out that I’ve inherited a sum of US $ 95 million from a prince in Angola. So, things are going pretty well for me.
