The scam now includes an FBI agent purportedly conducting his investigation in Nigeria. His grammar isn't great and he has a Japanese Yahoo email account.

I had an amusing moment today at a library.


I wanted to use their wireless, but didn't see it on the list of networks (seen by my laptop). I asked if it was available, it was. I asked them to show me which one (on my laptop).

right there, the librarian said, pointing to the connection labelled

F_B_L_PUBLIC.

hahaha, yeah, the F B L did make sense, but I thought it was one of those fake "F B I" wireless spots that people put up. ( L_ looked a lot like I_ )

When you said "i wanted to use their wireless" for a split second i thought you meant you wanted to use their radio.

That is showing my age
