Nigerian Letter scam (Events)

"They've raised their start-up capital by swindling needy and greedy college and high school students using a variation of the Nigerian scam."

Grant and Liam's internet scam is based on the Nigerian Letter scam, which is still being used today to prey on gullible victims. Variations of this scam include: being notified of a fake lottery win and asked for your bank details so the winnings can be transferred, or being overpaid with a fake check for an item you've put on auction and then asked for a refund of the overpayment. Weird how when criminals do it, it's called a scam, but when businesses do, it's called advertising.
