It amazes me that people fall for these scams. This is Africa, people! Just about the entire continent outside or Egypt, Morocco, and South Africa has a very shoddy history/reputation with financial dealings. But then, if anyone isn't willing to do any...ANY homework about a business transaction, then I guess they deserve what follows.
those scammers never cease, but how can someone fall for those "unsafe" transactions really amazes me. In calvin and hobbes cartoons calvin's fathers tell him something like "life is unfair, the thing is making it unfair in your favor"
