I have received a scam email offer to buy a CD player offering an amount over what I am asking. They ask you to send the excess funds to them right away to an address in Lagos, Nigeria. This scam is very common. The check is a forgery and will bounce. Does this sound familiar to anyone?
Oh sure. Its just a variation on the "I'm the son/daughter of a former cabinet minister and I need your help to access $5 gazillion that our family stashed away in U.S. which I will split w/you". I get these emails about 3-4x/year.
