I received an email from a Nigerian government official requesting me to help them on some confidential financial deal. The offer is quite tempting, risks seem minimal. I have exchanged some emails, checked out the websites, even the bank?s website, and everything seems to be in order. Do you think I should trust this email? - Hemant Chawla

trapped by these tricksters. Find out more at www.dqindia.com/nscam. Please inform as many people as you can about this.
