I was about to say that only w/ different wording.

"Some Nigerian Prince is out to get your monies."

Edit: The oldest internet scam in the book.

I love getting these. It's always amusing to reply and make them think you're falling for it; string 'em on until the point where they ask you to send cash for something, and then tell them to go shove it. :P

When I worked at the porn site, our site was all amateur porn live video chat. This meant probably 70% of the "adult contract personal" were from Russia and Romania. It was mostly, ummmm... lets call them studios, these studios would have hundreds of girls working for them all for the profit of a man who owns the worlds smallest giraffe. To them I was known as the "system administrator" who was always reviewing their video streams and making sure nothing illegal or just against company policy was happening as well as acting as their technical support. If anything against the rules was going on we'd enter their room, give them a cold sterile message of some sort, and shut their stream as well as suspend their accounts and ability to receive their paycheck. Of course if they were suspended, the guy who ran the studio wasn't very happy.

Anyways, at the time it was popular for these very same "studios" to IM random people trying to fish the same way with promises of cute, virgin, Russian wives. And of course, if your AIM account has been around awhile (mine's been around since like 96') you received these messages.

"Hey honeyz, see my pics: 555.scammyrussianprincess.com"

"This is your ####### system administrator. Your account has been suspended for breaching ####### policy and soliciting to non ######## members off site."

That would shut them up right quick. Do note these people actually weren't the girls usually and instead were some fat bastard smoking butts all day and posing as the girls and linking to different girls in the studio. Mainly because the girls couldn't read or write English.





I will also say, it opened a window into the dark fucked up world of the sex trade in 3rd world countries. The shit that happens is rather unsettling, fucked up, and... well... lets just say working at a porn site is NOT a dream come true. Quite the opposite, I don't think my libido has recovered yet.

I'm not going to say the company worked for was evil. Or that porn in general is evil. 99% of what is out there is actually consenting and legite. It's just there's a small group of pieces of shit... really though it was partly my job to find out who those pieces of shit were and flag them for legal to pass on to the authorities.
