Thanks, muladzh. You're right that it's a scam, so I've banned the user and IP, and made a note of it in their profile for anyone who looks.

For the record, gret11's IP is from Cote d'Ivoire, which is about a 13½-hour drive due West from Nigeria. Nigeria is probably the most notorious country for scams, but Cote d'Ivoire and Cameroon (which shares Nigeria's eastern border) both seem to be trying to outdo Nigeria these days.

Re: Don't know where this goes


Should someone report the gmail to Google? Or the FBI?

Re: Don't know where this goes


I've reported so many 419 and fake document scammers to Gmail, but they never seem to close their accounts. As for the FBI, the governments of those three countries aren't going to turn them over to our authorities. Then again, the FBI should have the authority to make Google close those email accounts, but we'd probably have better luck going through Dr. Phil for that because he likes to go after internet scammers.

I see. It's nice to know scammers aren't allowed to bilk Americans out of their hard earned money. *sarcasm*
