Many persistent spammers and scammers are actually located right here in North America. Overseas, though, more experienced foreign scammers whose first language is not English seem to be better with it than their peers, or that's the way it looks to me, anyway, but that's only a personal observation that isn't necessarily true. At the same time, I don't believe that I'm competely full of BS, either LOL. It's just really tough attempting to generalize without purposely stereotyping individual people. These experienced foreign scammers, according to my theory anyway, still make mistakes with English, though, and please do not help them. Scams appear in every language known to man, but English is "the language" that business seems to accept worldwide. And yet it is only the ninth or tenth most commonly spoken. MSN had an article about that.
I've noticed that today, these scammers also seem to be recognizing that using free "ordinary" western e-mail addresses largely does not work anymore, as I have been seeing a lot of strange looking free e-mail addresses these days. The free western addresses are those that the English speaking world is used to seeing everyday, although they do exist in Spanish, French, and Portuguese. I believe those are the "Big Three" languages in the Americas spoken other than English. These free e-mail services include ones offered by Microsoft Live, Google, and Yahoo in Qatar, India, China, Japan, or Mongolia, and a few others, so they use more esoteric (to Westerners, anyway) free e-mail address services based in the East, such as in Poland and others, where the websites do not appear in English. It's a good thing for us that Google came out with its free translator :o)
Anyway, nevermind me, I'm just rambling LOL. I'm just saying that the scammers are always improving themselves, trying to fool you, but I for one will not be fooled. You have to wake up pretty dang early in the morning to scam me. You can see more of these scam samples, linked here (see "Attention Beneficiary," top left), and some Western Union scam videos from YouTube located here. Please follow me on Twitter @inscamerated. Thank You!
