Nigerian scams are not new. Since the email has appeared, the princes who want to offer millions of dollars to save them from various misfortunes appeared. So we know emails that say free draws, millions who have to go outside the country, and ads for sexual accessories or pills.
But we had never seen this…
We have now passed on to the next level of deception that goes beyond the limits of our planet. The story is as follows:
A Nigerian astronaut (the first african in space, as reported in the message below) was abandoned a la Matt Damon by the Russians, and the government is seeking 3 for millions of dollars to organize the rescue mission.
The message was first published by Anorak.
Fraudsters even use an .gov domain e-mail account from the government's website.
It should be noted here that Nigerian scams have been around since the beginning of the Internet, and that means something. No one would be involved in "sports" if there was no profit.
So imagine that even the most obvious fraud can be attributed to the fraudsters.
