Oregon Woman Loses $400,000 to Nigerian E-Mail Scam

I get spam, you get spam, we all get spam, but why on earth would you send money to someone who emails you? Well this Oregon woman thought that she was going to be helping her “long lost relative” by clearing out her husbands retirement fund, taking out a mortgage on the house and a lien on the car and sending it all to some Nigerian man; we all know how much Nigeria helps out us Americans every day.
