« on: Dec 29, 2009, 05:00 PM »
Please watch out for the message below if you receive it. I received it today and it is a typical scam! Note that this message is neither from Central Bank of Nigeria nor from any bank in Nigeria.

The link (https: //www.cenbank. org/Protect/secure) was just used to deceive people with just hyperlink to fraudulent link (http: //www.cbninterswitchupdates. t35. com/).

Please share this message with your friends and relatives. Don't let them become victims of this nefarious act.
