Nigerian E- Mail Scam Evolves
The Sacramento Bee reports that a nigerian type e-mail scam picks up this time of year in college towns. Supposed renters are sending supposed deposit checks to potential landlords, ripping off the gullible ones.
They refer to Davis in the story but I can't help but wonder if they might try targeting Arcata sooner or later. Or have they already?
As an aside, I'm with the commentors on the story (comments are at bottom of story) I can't believe the girl in the story went along with this scam for so long.
