Funny, I keep getting strange $1 *** ads from this same email address that you have listed above,...

Although the meds are not needed in VA, I think this is a 'phishing' scheme or somebody has hacked into the 'Reply to this Ad/Email' under the classified section on this website. Bruce K4BOF

Typical Nigeria scammers , it was on 60 minutes a few weeks ago. I get them once in a while and actually played one out to see how it works , You can read and track the story I wrote in QTH if you search for N4ATS or Nigeria (if it is still archived)

These scams have been around a very long time. Just Google "Scam the scammers" and see what comes up. One website that has hints on how to waste the time and resources of the scammers and has been around for a long time can be found at http://www.419eater.com/

Just remember: If it sounds too good to be true...
