Now they're claiming to be lawyers

Especially Yahoo email accounts out of France, which is what all the best US lawyers do.

    I suppose

    claiming to be an American lawyer gives more credibility than being the widow of the former Nigerian Finance Minister, the Late Blessed Mr. Nigel Umubatutu, Rest His Soul...

    I received a bs call from ebay on my cell phone ... When you sell something on ebay you put in your contact number. I have my cell number.

    Some guy gets on the phone stating he's from ebay and I owe several hundred bucks in fees.. I just hung up quick and never heard back..
