We've all heard the old saying, "if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is." And Dennis Horton of the Better Business Bureau is reminding us to always keep that phrase in mind.
Nigerian letter scams have been around for 30-years and every so often they resurface with a vengeance.
Horton says e-mail scams are rampant because it's an easy way for con-artists to target people.
Horton says we have to remember that no one is ever going to give us something for nothing.
Horton says if you receive a scam in the mail, you should visit the secret service's Web site. You'll be able to write to them about the letter, so they can track the scam.
