Instead he got a visa to a neighbouring country and then took a bus to Nigeria. This is when he was separated from his money.Some people think they get something for nothing. A bit like the Internet hype here in Holland in the 90's.

Another scam that they tried on the training company I work for is"Top of the morning and greeting to you and yours. I have got your name from our local Chember of Commerce who gave me your name and who assure me that your company is a suitable partner.I am chief Abila of HRM in the ministry of software development and I wish to send 10 people to your courses C++, UML and design pattrens. Could you give me please a quotation for this course, including the costs of the acquire of visas for these people for a sojourn of 5 days in your country. Since you are in that country it is easier to do the paperwork. God bless you"A true story, I kid you not.

yes, I believe that one - its what happens when you have an email address available in the net!A similar story happened in my department, but this time they were not hunting money, but UK visas;we were organising an international conference and these guys from this institute we had never heard about,they were extremely keen in participating,... we just had to send them the official paperwork for them to sort out the visas...in the btw, that bus story in nigeria... wowww!!and out of curiousity, what happened in Holand back in the 90's?

QuoteOriginally posted by: alexandreCand out of curiousity, what happened in Holand back in the 90's?Like everywher else I suppose the usually sober Dutch went overboard by borrowing money and investing it in shares and internet stuff. I did not believe in that hype for one minute. Instead I bought a nice little cottage with a view of the green plains + a fire to burn trurf where I could retreat to.I suppose people were brainwashed, mass hysteria.A good book is "Tulip Mania" by Mike Dash, pub. Victor Gollanz, London. It was the hype around tulips. To buy one tulip you had to sell your house in Amstardam along the canals.....A tulip was equivalent to yearly salary of an artisan.
