I really would like to know how high is the success rate of such a scam? I mean, the Nigerian money transfer scam is going on for decades and still seems to be profitable...

Everyone knows to avoid them, but 1 out of a million could fall for it and that'd pay for the entire operation. It really is sad.

there's a reason why this continues to happen - it works. all you need to do is target the older people, as they seem to be more gullible.

Actually, that's exactly why they make their scams so obvious. If the scam is more subtle, they'll get many more responses, but most of those people will figure out it's a scam before it's too late, wasting the scammer's time. With ridiculously obvious scams, however, the few people who do respond are the ones who are guaranteed to fall for it. It's much more efficient to scam a small number of really gullible people than a large number of not-so-gullible ones.

Oh god this is hilarious. This is way better than the Nigerian prince scam. The United Nations saving the world, one random stranger at a time.

That is so f***ing backwards as a jacket in Winter on BACKWARDS that you have to laugh, or you'd cry for HOURS if you didn't laugh.

Thos Nigerian scammers are quite the bunch that people who are NOT gullible and more seasoned like us HAVE to laugh like maniacs. OMG the scammers are so dumb. I use Gmail and haven't seen a scammer email that was this horrible for AGES!

Without a doubt my favorite part is the @hotmail email address.  Like the UN wouldn't have their own domain and are forced to use hotmail...

If you search for it, you'll find many threads of victims, even recent ones, complaining about scams like these.

I guess some africans think they are stealing from the rich and, therefore, that they are some kind of selfish Robin Hood.
