    I haven't heard of a rash of people falling for Nigerian scams, do you have a source for this or at least an article pointing out the trend?

  • When people need money they get desperate and the more and more they need the more desperate they become and the more their willing to trust and believe scams, its really sad but not totally a reflection of intelligence. It's like if youre really hungry and theres a chunk of cheese in the middle of a bear trap, conventional wisdom would be to move along and find some other food but a good number of starving people would try to go for it...

    Lack of education in geography. They think Nigeria is a part of Disneyland, or maybe a Vegas hotel.

    These scams get plenty of people world wide, esp in the UK>

    True many Americans are honest and do not see foreign scams for what they are.

    I certainly don't fall for them. Perhaps we have more trusting souls.

    Source(s): Thanks for calling us stupid!
