Amina Togar .. another African millionaire?

Let me guess...
Another poor millionaire at a concentration camp with fast speed internet access, offering me millions since I am such a reliable and honest person, whom they found in the internet and trust me more than they would trust their mother...

Oh, and wait - this Liberian guy/gal who is in Senegal has for some reason an Italian IP address, close to Bergamo in the far Northern Italy, and a bit too good English.

Leckie, ... sigh. It's all scam. I doubt that the name of this spammer even is Amina Togar.
I doubt you'll ever see that money again.
Take care, and be careful.

Hey, they contacted me too. I was sure it's a scam from the first email, but i was curios enough to reply to their emails. It seems Amina is the first name they like. They change the last name, but Amina is always the first name. Its easy to get the scam because the emails are like they where written a long time ago, and they have no connection with what you write back. They don't even bother to reply with logical meaning. I suspect they send many messages and hope that at least some of them get to their targets. I am sure that i cannot find out anything else about these guys so i will stop emailing. Everyone, never send money to people you think you met over the web.
