    let me guess... there's some reason why you'll have to send them $100 before it can all happen.

        and to make sure there's room in the bank account for all the winnings, they'll first conveniently remove any funds in there already; wouldn't want an "account full" error to get in the way of things...

          Perhaps so Jim, perhaps so.

          I went to Wikipedia for the old Brit TV show "When my Ship Comes In" - and guess what:

          When I was really looking for: "When the Boat Comes In":

          Small world.

          Or as we are led to believe that as the Americans would have it: "There is a sucker born every minute".

              Onedin

              Yes Norm. I never missed "The Onedin Line" either. There is no beating the Brits and the BBC when it comes to acting, period drama, history, back-drops, and costume etc. The plots, counter-plots, sub-plots and intrigue etc. are first class.

              I never miss anything to do with the sea or things maritime either.

                I almost had $25 million

                But I didn't have bank account so the nigerian lawyer found someone else.
                Non, je ne regrette rien.

                  Writing as 'Aviemoron', our next door neighbour was 'from the fishin' in Fraserburgh. He had so much money that his RangeRover had the registration
                  F1SHY. And then -he sold up in Aviemore. Then the bottom dropped out of the fishin' and the other one from the fishin' also sold up.

                  Ah, yes! Fishing Quotas are with us. Thinking in terms of fishing, we had 2 RAF Tornado bird strikes in about an hour. No doubt that the birds were fishing as well. It's all go here in Newcastle.

                      David,
                      I know you look it but you cannot be so old to know about Betty Boop.

                      Now Shirley Temple- and the Good Ship Lolly Pop- my first passion.
                      Come to think about it, what's passion?

                      Oh, dear- that first white hair- oh, dear, that last one.
                      I'll tie a knot in it to stop it falling out

                      Cheers

                      Norm

                        Why they bother I don't know. The first clue that it just might not be real is that you have "won a lottery" that you never purchased a ticket on. People dumb enough to fall for that usually aren't loaded with cash, certain hollywood stars excepted.

                              Jim,
                              Get yourself over to Nigeria ASAP& collect your winnings, I have heard from one of our other "African cousins" as well, I am still sad at the lost opportunity to hit the bigtime, Going over for your money would be more convenient than giving out your bank details, After all it is only an air line journey away! Look what an adventure you would miss out on-- Held hostage , tortured , starved, your meagre bank account emptied to secure your return, dysentry, yellow fever, malaria, your name in the international press-- Sounds a good deal all round
