This email scam sounds like the one I received emails about a few months
ago. My messages invited me to participate in funds transfers from
Nigeria. I believe I went to a U.S. gov't Travel Warnings site where this
exact scam was identified as "The Nigerian Scam" and explained. Hard to
believe, but according to the site, people actually sent these criminals
information and got involved, eventually getting their bank accounts
cleaned out. I forwarded the emails to AOL. I would not respond directly
to the originator of the unwanted emails.The U.S. Treasury Dept. may also
be interested. -judy
