Did more people got a message from someone, who wants to go to Belgium to see what Belgium makes the 'capital' of europe?

Are you being stalked, Utrecht? Haven't received it yet but apparantly he is mad about Belgium. Well, something for everyone it seems!!!

Well, he claims to be Nigerian and he has an agreement with some students that he wants to find out what makes Belgium so special. Well, that's beer of course.
He needs a letter of invitation and an copy of a belgium pasport...like anyone will give him that :)

But of course he's just the next refugee who thinks life is better in the west. Well, it probably is, but not in Belgium;)

Actually Utrecht, a trick way fishier has almost been pulled on you.

These Nigerians (they pop up EVERYWHERE; forums, mass mailings, you name it) are after copies of EU identity papers for major bank fraud. It has nothing to do with refugeeism (which, judging from the little I know about Nigeria, would have been a perfectly justifiable thing).

Anyone who has received similar messages, either on TP or elsewhere, should NOT act on them. If you let these people play on your sympathy, you risk ending up in jail for bank fraud, or at the very least have your own account cleaned out

Regardless of reason, please always flag suspicious messages like this as SPAM. If it is who I think it is, this happened pretty quickly Utrecht and he only got a couple out before his account was blocked.
