You got to love these bottom feeders. They went out of their way to contact me and then they ask for my name, gender and age. To top it off the spam is from “pathology”@ hathway.com and the big shot wants me to respond to some yahoo address in the UK. These scams get better every time.

    LOL ok so:

    1. The email is a uk one and with that they: 2 claim to be from Nigeria?

    3. Who in their right mind would give 7 million to a complete stranger on the internet!??!!?

    Ahh but the sad thing is this might work for 3 to 5 individuals out of the millions and millions of emails they have sent this too and at that point the scammers have made a profit….Sad really😦

    Anyhow, all the best!

    I have personally experienced a scam involving Rev. Terry Smith. I work for a reputable hotel chain and he tried to pull a fast one. We do accept credit cards over the phone but if they are going to be charged in advance like Rev. Terry Smith wanted we require copies of the credit card and drivers license of the card holder. He wanted us to charge a large amount 7,000.00+ dollars and give half of it to the viscarage for their services. We would have to foot the bill if this comes back from the credit card company as frauldulent charges. He send only copies of the credit card which were photoshopped horribly. The credit card company doesn’t even care. They wont even contact the true card holder letting them know that Rev. Terry Smith stole their credit card number. I honestly cannot believe their are sadistic people like this out in the world. God Bless them all. Espically the Rev. Terry Smith.

    I hope he gets caught and spends multiple life sentences for fraud.

    Mr. Terry Smith is simply a son of a bitch. Sorry to say, but in my country we all know that when it comes to dealing with a Nigerian…..you are dead. Most of the scammers are from there, seriously.
