Argh. Stories like these always makes me cringe.

Clouded by offer of $26.6 million dollars, a woman in Oregon sent out over $400,000 to Nigerian email scammers over the course of two years — even after her family members and bank officials told her to stop.

Obsession? Greed?  Read the story and watch the video to get a better feel.

The sad truth is classic scams like these will always be prevalent, and as time pass, they’ll simply occur through different mediums.
