Inflation is not caused by the actions of private citizens,
but *by the government*: by an artificial expansion of the
money supply required to support deficit spending.
No private embezzlers or bank robbers in history have ever
plundered people’s savings on a scale comparable to the
plunder perpetrated by the fiscal policies of statist
governments.

Why are we ‘picking’ on this poor, defenseless woman.
It is NOT a scam.
In the last month I have won about 50 lotteries I never played and my new recently orphaned/widowed/etc friends in Africa and England have been sending me offers that range into the trillions if I could get a calculator that would carry all the zeros. The majority prize/windfall is in the 75-100 million range.
I just feel I have been blessed and as soon as I can scrape enough together to buy a book of stamps I will answer these people and start collecting my money.
If this keeps up, I will be able to personally pay off the US debt.
AIN’T THIS A BEAUTIFUL WORLD????...S/S/S/S

She hopes her story will warn others to listen to reason and avoid going down the dark tunnel of obsession that ended up costing her so much
....and she's an Red Obambi Supporter/voter, too....fawnin' & prayin' @ the "Red Messiah's feet"...no different than the LMSM

...that it was all a scam. She persisted.
..that the big tape was 24 hours away. Spears said she became obsessed with hearing the tape.
..into a vicious cycle of posting API articles in hopes the false promises will turn out to be real.
Spears estimates it will take two years to dig out of the posts she ran up on Free Republic in pursuit of the non-existent tape."

*sigh*....Say it ain't true. /sarcasm

I just recently got a new scam letter from the “FBI” promising to recover any money I may have lost through prior scam letters! All for a “small fee”, of course. Now and then I play along with the scammers for a while just to amuse me and annoy them. There are dozens of excuses as to why I have not yet sent the money for fees they requested, but it will be forthcoming. HA!

Sorry, but no sympathy at all from me. Everbody knows about these Nigerian bank scams, and even if somehow she never heard of them, they are so obviously bogus that anyone who gets scammed by them, deserves to be scammed.

I don’t think law enforcement should spend a dime of our tax dollars fighting these scams. Some money for informing the public is fine, but they should not waste our tax dollars trying to help these idiots.

“Obama voter”

Hey, she got taken for $400K by the most obvious and well known scam in history, but is there any evidence she is gullible enough to have voted for an obvious black nationalist, Marxist, sleeper named Barack Hussein Obama?

You need to see an attorney and get a power of attorney in writing. It takes 5 minutes and costs very little. Do it today. Sounds like your mom still has her buttons, so also make sure they have up to date wills on file.

At this point a good attorney will save you a lot of headaches later on. I’m surprised no one has apprised you of this.

Sorry darlin'....we're already up to speed. It appears that you are the last person on the entire planet to have gotten the memo. Your interest in going public

I don't know why anyone is sucked in by Nigerian scams. There are better offers available. Currently Frank Ben (Assistant Managing Director Turkish Bank (UK) Ltd London with 30% of 25 million Pounds Sterling) and Glen Bruce (AUDITOR GENERAL First National Bank Johannesburg with 38,559,000 Euro) have opened negotiations with me.

Stay away from Nigerian deals, it's not worth the risk

My ex-husband had an aunt who believed every email that told her she had won an Irish or European lottery that she had never entered. I heard that she finally passed away at 90+ in a government-supported assistance living facility, damning her children for blocking her access to the millions she had *won*. It may have helped that she really liked booze.

Here is my latest conversation via e-mail with these scammers. I like to have a little conversation with them....you know it makes them burn up the pages of their Nigerian to Englissh translation books.

E-mail from Elinor George:

From : Mrs. Elinor George
Abidjan Cote d’Ivoire

Dearest Calvary Greetings,
With Due Respect And Humanity, I was compelled to write to you under a humanitarian ground.My name is Joy Elinor George. I was born in
Baltimore, Maryland,I am married to Mr. George Jacob director J.C Industries Cote d’Ivoire. We were married for 36 years without a child.

He died after a Cardiac Arteries Operation. And Recently, My Doctor
told me that I would not last for the next six months due to my cancer problem (cancer of the liver and stroke).Before my husband died last year thereis this sum $4.8 Million Dollars that he deposited in a Bank here In Ivory Coast.

Presently this money is still in the Bank custody. Having known my
condition I decided to donate this fund to any good God fearing brother
or sister that will utilize this fund the way I am going to instruct
herein.I want somebody that will use this fund according to the desire of my late.husband to help Less privilaged people, orphanages, widows andpropagating the word of God.

I took this decision because I don’t have any child that will inherit
this fund, And I don’t want in a way where this money will be used in an unGodly way.This is why I am taking this decision to hand you over this
Fund. I am not afraid of death hence I know where I am going.
I want you to always remember me in your daily prayers because of my up coming Cancer Surgery.

Write back as soon as possible any delay in your reply will give me
room in sourcing another person for this same purpose,Hoping to read from you asap.
God bless you as you listing to the voice of Reasoning,
Yours sister,
Mrs. Elinor George


My Response:

Joy,

Oh my God, you are in a terrible position! Have you considered another Doctor who could maybe give you better news? I did and it helped me a great deal.

When I suffered rectal/cranial inversion a few years ago in a farm machinery accident, my first doctor told me there wasn’t anything that could be done and I believed him. Life was extremely difficult because I had buttocks where my head should be. After a long period of humilation (people laughed and made fun of me when I ate chili and eating crackers was hard too) I met Dr Robert Bunsenburner at a Halloween Party and with one two-part operation, I was cured!

What Calvary are you in? I was in the Second Armoured Calvary before it merged with MSNBC. We never got to be First because of the Dewey Decimal System, used in all public libraries, which demands no duplications of Cardinal numbers. We have no more Cardinal numbers here in New Jersey because it is too cold now but I did spot a Blue Jay, which is a close relative.

Please go ahead and send me the money but, be sure to keep a little for the next six months or so.

Thank you,


elinor george to me:

Dearest Keith,
Greetings to you through our Lord !
I received and read your mail with gratitude to God and I have decided with my full heart to WILL this fund under your control, I was satisfied and convience with the glory of God that you will take proper care of the fund . I have contacted you in this matter with a sincere mind and in good faith believing that you are not going to disappoint me.
I have contacted you to use this money for the work of God and you are going to help so many souls through this money.

I am persuaded to fulfil this desire of my late husband and that is why I will be trusting and believing your sincerity to appropriate this accordingly. This fund is desiginated for humanitarian and Charity services with special emphasis. This must be disbursed with every appropriation, accountability and prudence to the glory of God.

I will want you to urgently handle this to the glory of God. All what you will do is to contact the bank where the fund is deposited and introduce yourself to them as my late husband [ Mr. George Jacobs ] foreign business associate and the beneficiary of the deposited US$ 4,800,000.00 million with their bank, you will instruct the bank here on how they will transfer the money into your care, you will tell the bank that this money is for ophanage services which your late partner Mr. George Jacobs deposited on your behalf before his death, so that the bank here will transfer the money to you. I will not be capable to handle this, because I have been placed on daily check up periodically. But I will contact the bank today after sending you this mail and introduce you to them as my late husband foreign business associate and the beneficiary of the money with their bank , so that it will be easier for you to claim the fund.

Please always remember me in your daily prayers for my health condition is not getting better that I am still alive today is by the special Grace of God, and may the Good Lord add more anointing upon you , and give you more wisdom to handle this project to his own Glory. You have to try and call my family Doctor because I have informed him about you , since I will be going for surgery operation by next coming week and you should introduce yourself officially to him as the foriegn business partner to my late husband MR. GEORGE JACOBS and care taker of the deposited fund in the bank, he will direct you and guide you on what to do in order to claim the fund if I am not capable to communicate with you because of my health situation.

Below is the contact of my family Doctor.
Name: Dr Moses Hoose.
Email: saintnicolas_hospitals@live.fr
Private phone: +22509705408.

Please understand my fiscal health condition, like I told you before I have been prescribed to undergo a major cancer operation which is scheduled to be hold by next week, so I will want us to conclude this transaction before my surgery, as we may not say the outcome of the surgery. I am going to forward you the contact of the bank and account information of the fund deposit so that you will send it across to the bank when contacting them as your proof.

Thanks and may God bless you. As i await to hear from
you soon,

Your sister,
Mrs. Joy Elinor George

Just as every person believes he has a good sense of humor and is a good driver, he believes he's too smart to be scammed. Trouble is, there seem to be plenty of bad drivers, easy marks and folks with no sense of humor.

You can have him declared incompetent. See a lawyer immediately. You can have them both declared incompetent.
I went through this with my mother. They would call her at 5am and try to get her to buy things knowing she was half asleep. I intercepted one of those calls when she was in the hospital. I had the pleasure of telling that woman exactly what I thought of her and her kind. You’re right. There is a special place in Hell for these people.
Hopefully, our generation won’t be such an easy mark, but then who knows what our mental state will be.

Dear Mrs. Spears,

My agency, The United Nations Bureau for the Prevention of Fraud, has located $300,000.00 in Nigerian bank accounts and our investigation has determined that this money is part of the money scam in which you were a victim.

Nigerian banks are notoriously corrupt but we have managed to alert certain individuals within the bank to this fruad and they have agreed to help release these funds on a fee basis.
We are negotiating the amount of fees expected but legal costs are also involved. If you could send an amount of $10,000 to cover these legal fees we can be reasonably certain that the return of your money will be possible in the near future.
