Another fine scam brought to you by ‘419 Nigerian Scammers and Thieves’, an affiliate of Bottom Feeders International. This one is so pathetic that it is an embarrassment to the entire scammers community. Shame on you Barrister David Smith Esq.!
Check out David Smith for a humorous read.
UPDATE Feb. 28, 2008
I just wanted to mention that there are several legitimate organizations under the David Smith Associates name and it is not uncommon for scammers to use legitimate organizations as a pretext to lure recipients into their web.
Here we are in the month of May and this scam is still on the web. This site has passed the ten thousand mark for reads about David Smith and his scam. As I said before, the poor guy has his name used by some bottom feeder trying to scam honest people sorry David, keep smiling, us honest people sent along our best wishes.
UPDATE TIME AGAIN: FEB 16,2009
This scam seems to have no end, the bottom feeders are still at it and no end in sight. Stay vigilant people and don’t respond at all to these low lives. I know that it is tempting to respond and verbalize our contempt; however, this only lets the bottom feeders know that people are actually reading their garbage. If no one responded , they would be, out of “business”.
DAVID SMITH AND ASSOCIATES
UPDATE ONCE AGAIN…..Mar 2010′
Sorry folks seems that the bottom still insist on using the David Smith name to scam innocent people. This site alone has had over twenty thousand visits concerning this scam. I guess the bottom feeders just don’t get the message.
