You've seen something like that in at least one e-mail a week. You've deleted it immediately or you've read it and wondered what was going on.
The short version of the scam is: The Scammers find someone greedy and/or gullible enough to open an "offshore" account at the cost of around $2,000. After a lot of manoeuvring on the scammer's part, the victim is left penniless or worse, dead.
Actor Dean Cameron did not delete the email, but instead, began corresponding with one of the scammers. Writing as a lonely millionaire from Florida whose only companions were a Philippine houseboy, Kwan, and two cats, Mr. Snickers and JoJo the Dancing Clown, Cameron lured the unsuspecting scammer in to a nine month correspondence full of intrigue, broken hearts, confusion, frustration and colon trouble.
