    Yeah, a .cn extension is China. Didn't know the FBI had a field office over there!

    That whole letter would be pretty humorous, if it wasn't for the fact that some will take it seriously.

    Oooh! Ooooh! Well, that seals it, right there. Where do I sign? Someone from inside my own government so willing to give me money must be legit.

    My brother-in-law fell for the puppy scam. He sent $1500 to Africa for an registered English Bulldog. They were going to ship the dog overnight from Africa. I LMAO when my wife told me they were on their way to the airport to pick up this dog. Needless to say they got no dog at the airport. They drove the next day to Alabama and paid $1000 for one that is pretty much useless. They have to pick this dog and and carry it outside to use the bathroom. $2500 well spent. Some people should not be allowed to handle money.
