Scams close to home

Oops:

In order to attract investors, Denson fabricated stories about how he had made millions designing window-washing equipment or how he stood to inherit millions from his long-lost father.

In fact, Denson was soliciting money in an effort to cash in on an e-mail he had received saying he was entitled to $9 million if he agreed to forward a $1,000 transfer fee to Ghana, according to an affidavit.

He clearly hasn't read my Togo conversation.
