What if I was not idiot/greedy enough to fall victim to such a scheme? Can I still contact Nigeria and provide them with all my personal details for them to deposit this money to my bank of choice if it means it will make the world a better place?

Thank the heavens for people [strike]in Nigeria[/strike] the world over wanting to make this world a better place.

Oh man! I wonder if it's my prince in Nigeria that's going to be compensating you?! If it is, can you send him my information too? I don't seem to have gotten my email telling me that I'm entitled to half a million US dollars. I'm sure it's on the way, though.

I got a phishing phone call yesterday. They called to say that my bank account had been frozen for security issues. I needed to give them my card number and PIN to fix it.

Oh wow. Now that is service going the extra mile! You didn't even have to go through the inconvenience of going to the bank in person or anything?

Seriously though, I am dying to know what your response was. Pray tell! :nod:
