    The Nigerian prince continues to rake in loot after 25 years of his shenanigans.

    I simply don't understand, barring some mental disability, how anyone could fall for that scam.

    Greed causes people to lose what little control they may possess.

    I remember getting such letters through the USPS 30+ years ago...and faxes too. The tech changes. The con does not.

    Unfortunately people fall victim to obvious scams every day. Elderly, mentally impaired, and uneducated people are the most common victims. In short, these scams tend to hurt the most vulnerable among our population more than anyone.

    I've known some victims that were educated, wealthy, and powerful.

    Greed knows no socioeconomic, ethnic, or educational barrier.

    The victims weren't stupid, even intellectually challenged, they allowed their greed to overcome their common sense.

    A place where I worked briefly in the 80's got the first one of the Nigerian prince letters I had ever seen. The owners almost fell for it and likely would have had it not been for problems calling the Nigerian number. Of course, they weren't the brightest lights on the tree which is one reason I didn't work there long.

    There was also an F1 team that was pretty much brought down by a Nigerian Prince.

    Greed can grip anyone. But while some educated people fall for obvious scams, what I see much more are those who are more vulnerable falling for it.

    We all see different things.

    I never assume what I have seen that others haven't seen something different.

    The world is not a one size fits all planet.
