A little bit extreme, no? But this appears to be a new route Nigerian scammers are taking. Instead of the classic email containing promises of $43,000,000, there are new scams that play to people’s emotions and no longer their greed. Scammers are asking for donations to help pay for the expenses to ship struggling dogs out of poor under developed countries. However, instead of a dog, you’ll receive a nice loss in your savings account. If you receive one of these emails, simply delete it immediately. I can assure you that the imaginary dog will make it by just fine.
It looks to me like scammers are evolving. Always be weary.
