Here's a freshly created scam that's been going around for a little while. Scammers always like to take advantage of major events, such as baseball's World Series or soccer's World Cup. The Olympics of whatever year is never an exception.
If you have ever wondered whether the money being offered by strangers is real, please allow me to alleviate the wonder. The answer is always a resounding "No!" If you had access to millions of dollars or pounds, would you want to give it away to someone else?
If you do not want to get ripped off, then please do not ever allow temptation to goad you into paying for something that simply does not exist. The one and only reason these people create these scams and send them out in the first place is because they are successful in stealing people's money. This has been going on for hundreds of years in one form or another, and the internet has made scamming extremely convenient. Stop falling for the scams, and the scammers and their e-mails will go away.
Today, the scammers always want you to wire them money, because once they pick it up, it is gone for good, and you would have virtually no chance of getting it back. Western Union or MoneyGram will warn you about the scam, but in the end, if they cannot convince you that it is one, they cannot refuse to take your wiring fee. Even if the police caught the scammers and got it back, it would not surprise me if they kept it for themselves or for the department.
P.T. Barnum said that there's a sucker born every minute. Opportunity may quietly knock just once, but temptation will loudly bang on your front door forevermore. Don't be a sucker. The money does not ever exist, and there are never any exceptions. Period.
