A New Variation on the Classic Nigerian "You HaveWon" Scam

AUTHOR: Helene - (U.S.A.)

This time you didn't win anything. You are being offered a credit card if you pay a fraction of what it is worth and send the money to the person who is offering this deal.

IT IS FAKE.

THERE IS NO CREDIT CARD so save your money.

This is not even a good scam.
