New Nigerian Scam???

Unread postby mossboss » Sun Aug 31, 2014 2:58 am

Well here is a new one
This is the email I got from someone No need for names to be mentioned

My names are ------------ I have over 6 million vinyl records in my possession and i wanted to confirm if your company is interested in buying them to recycle.
I would appreciate a reply mail from you.


My reply

Where are they located? What is your target price?

Reply from Nigerian "seller"

Tanks for your response.

Pls don't freak out when I say I'm in Nigeria (because I do get the aww!! response a lot or the silent treatment).

But, I have been trying to trade these mini vinyl's for a while now.

And as for the target price, I wanted to trade each of them for a dollar.
Please check the attachment for samples.
Thanks again.

My reply to the man

Use them for ballast on a big boat or give them to the local kids as Frisbee toys

Not sure that 6 million records was ever sold in Nigeria,
If it is so than it is a case where would one keep them??
I am sure that if any interest is shown the next thing will most likely be "send me a deposit" etc etc etc
These people are really inventive that's for sure

I didn't know old records are worth anything......

220 grams per vinyl * 6million = 2900000. pounds
