    That is precisely where this strategy, which is acting on that very minute percentage of 0,001% (of $$$-dummies) is still adequate to survive on... given the state, cost of living and the standards that both the Nigerians and copycats around the globe pull through daily with similar stunts from out of the 1,7 billion people that now goes online...!!

    Go figure what the success rate can be like?

    Still, it is a simple & humble task that is equally costless, to forewarn like posting and commenting the absurdity of these which we help the naive and ignorants somewhat to be aware and not foolishly fall victims on such gimmicks!!!

    It is esp. those who are desperately in dire $$$-stressed situations that could flip common sense and go insane with such preposterous offers
