Eventually after telling them that I'd worked in Nigeria, knew all about 419'ers and wasn't about to send money via any means to anyone, they said they had someone that would fund the transfer. This is where their trick took a turn to advance fee. They sent me a cheque for £100,000.00 pounds sterling, believe me, I still have the copy.
