I was almost scammed out of thousands of dollars today. You might
already know about this Bishop scam, but I was totally unaware and
ALMOST fell for it.

Read the whole story at:

and be careful.

Thank you, Sophia! Jun 28, 2005

Sophia,

Thank you for alerting us. Libin also warned us about a similar scam one month ago. Please see:

I also received the same emails, except that the Bishop had a Chinese wife and would come to Texas.

Because it is harder to 识攋 than the one cited by Libin.

I have several rounds of email exchange with that "Bishop". It sounded nothing wrong in the beginning. They hid their intention and you had no reason to suspect them. I was very demanding in my response when they approached me to do interpretation. Later on I found whatever you demanded, they always said OK and they seemed to be able accommodate all your requirements. 揤忋哪棦桳这么岲媓揑馅饼両

By now, 樐寁涍鉙桳恖忋珀椆丅
