For some years in the 70's I worked at a NY based company exporting goods around the world. We received Nigerian scam letters nearly everyday. The funniest was from a fellow who said his vintage typewriter was becoming unrepairable and perhaps we could send him a newer model... gratis of course.

Any requests for money orders from Western Union is an alarm. After I froze my credit card in a scam ad from Mobitech for a Canon camera, I got a nasty phone call cursing me out in a heavy Slavic accent after I froze my credit card. Caveat t emptor!
