From Inq7.net

Woman duped of $800 in lottery scam

A MOTHER from Nueva Ecija had pledged to donate one million pesos to a television network’s foundation for children when she gets the one million dollars that she was told she had won in a lottery based in Nigeria.

She ended up incurring a debt of 800 dollars because it turned out that the Universal International Lottery was merely a scam.

The woman said she received an e-mail last November 12 saying she won the lottery. She was told to place a money order to one Chibueze Francis of 234 Anubu Square, Lagos, Nigeria, for her to claim her prize money.

The DFA on Tuesday confirmed to her that the lottery was a hoax.

The DFA immediately released a press statement reminding Filipinos not to fall prey into the modus operandi of the “Advance Fee Fraud Scam” where “winners” are required to pay an advance fee before the supposed release of a substantial amount of money.

Wag kayo paloko sa mga ganyan klaseng emails ;)

I once received a similar e-mail. Inasar ko lang. I replied with: If you're really that rich, send me money first and we'll start talking. Di na sumagot.

Buti naman, Ako rin pinadalhan ilang beses. But ayaw ko makipag laro sa ganyan klaseng mga pakana. Baka buhay ko pa ang kapalit. So i said NO ilang beses. Kasi ilang beses din nila ako e-nimail. Sana nga ma bawasan na mga scammers na yan.

Good na hindi ka kumagat.

May kasamahan kami who did. He gave out his address and phone
number. And he was receiving calls. Buti na lang he never sent any
money.

Anyway, he had to change his phone numbers just to stop the guys
trying to scam him.

I remember there was a post somewhere in another discussion forum where a Pinoy out-scammed the Nigerians.  He narrated how he was able to get an amount of money from them.  Kasi the Nigerians thought he was really loaded with cash.  It was really very very funny how the exchanged their emails.

Our Pinoy hero really made a fool out of them.

Anybody here still remember that news?  Anong URL kaya yun.  Sana ma-share sa PMY forum.

Ang galing.  When I searched sa google "pinoy nigerian scam" nasa page one. 

You should really read this thread.  Mautak talaga ang Pinoy.

First lines of the article:
THE DUMBEST CRIMINAL ON THE PLANET
This was the first time we heard of a target getting money out of a LAD - three bucks!
Passed on by a Kindly Contributor from the Philippines (we'll call him Big Daddy).
In which the term 'meta-stupid' is seen for the first time on these pages.

Featuring
ESCOBER TONY SANKOH - scammer from Ghana (maybe) (tvkamara@yahoo.com)
versus
BIG DADDY - anti-scammer.

A variation of the Nigerian scam emails. Pangalawa na si Jude sa Estrada family na magamit ang pangalan sa Nigerian scam email, una si Loi Estrada. Posibleng Pinoy nga ang nakaisip gamitin yun, pede rin namang nde. Basta ang mahalaga, malaman niyo na scam yan at wag niyo patulan.
