My cousin fell for one of those scams. She said she thought it was a Passover Blessing. I wanted to smack her upside the head. To be in your mid 20s and fall for that is a tad ridiculous, in my opinion anyway.
When I was trying to sublet my apartment through Craigslist someone tried to send me the rent for the 10 months remaining in the lease. I thought it was a bit suspicious for someone to send me that much money without seeing the place. So I told them never mind. They then asked me to deposit the money orders into my account and keep a couple hundred for my troubles. THEN get new money orders and return them to their address... AHHHH.... NOOOOO!!!
I had/have enough LEGAL debt coming out of college... I do NOT need any ILLEGAL bills/lawsuits/debt/whatever you wanna call it.
