Has anybody actually fallen for any of those letter/lottery scmas or the like. I know most of us would have received one but has anyone actually had money/ their identity stolen? I had a Nigerian woman once on a chat site who claimed if I let her use my bank account, she'd give me 7 million dollars. "Her father had been murdered and she had to escape Nigeria and get her trust fund out of the way". LOL, does anyone ever believe them? Why do they keep doing it? UGH!

I get many of those letters and I just delete them as they are all a scam.. I have even gotten some saying they need my Bank Account as there was a mistake in the account.. Funny thing is it is never the Bank I Bank with so I know it is a scam...

I get those e-mails all the time. My husband told me they were scam and I believed him.
