One of the most common spam swindles is the Nigerian e-mail scam. Some Nigerian prince needs to find a way to get a bajillion dollars out of the country and if you'll kindly provide your bank account information, he'll happily transfer it all there and give you a large percentage for assisting to launder the money. A young man in at a market stall in Lagos, Nigeria.It's actually called an "advance fee fraud;" Nigeria is one of the largest producer of spam e-mails although the government says it's cracking down.

Last year I warned Projectors about e-mail and Facebook scams begging gay men to help a young third world gay virgin flee persecution in his native country by sending large amounts of cash. When the amazingly cute boy escaped to your city, he would, of course, be sexually grateful since you're such a good looking stud in your Facebook profile picture.

Now it looks like someone has found a way to merge the two.

Through my various e-mail incarnations, I got five copies of this e-mail today.

It would be extremely funny if some people wouldn't fall for this. There are those, mostly lonely, who will. The lonely gay man, like the lonely older person who will do anything, pay anything just to converse with someone on the phone. Anybody.
Too bad the perception that you are dead after 30 still persists and is propagated even in current gay-themed (non-porn) movies.
