Online scams create "Yahoo! millionaires"
In Lagos, where scamming is an art, the quickest path to wealth for the cyber-generation runs through a computer screen.

I have received a few emails from ? I just deleted them because they were so obviously a scam. They told of needing me tio send money, etc, etc, etc to help them pay whatever. I can not imagine anyone falling for this kinda crap. I think the government (or whomever) works very hard at making us all aware of scams.

Actually the amount of people in this country who fall for a telephone scam every day here in America is giganic.
