Are we that gullible?

Every day, any one of us could be receiving emails from Nigeria or Nigerians staying in the country, stating that he or she has inherited a fortune [in the millions of US$] but due to strict government monetary policy, they would need to operate an off shore account, riding 'piggy back' on your account.  They would then ask you to participate in the scheme and promised that the fortune would be shared once the 'transaction' is completed.  Yet, behind this shady request, many still fall victims to such a scam without prior vetting on the identity of the caller.  Here is a video that will help to highlight the scammers at work, and then caught, in Kuala Lumpur.  In this case, the victims were just lonely people, and the Nigerians took advantage of their vulnerability.
