Another Osama Bin Laden Scam

Another scam has surfaced following the death of terrorist mastermind Osama bin Laden.

The Better Business Bureau says a version of the Nigerian letter scam is going around in emails and letters. The correspondence claims to be from a soldier who wants to move millions of dollars from bin Laden's compound to the U.S., and they need your help to do it.

The BBB says those who respond to the so-called soldier's plea for "someone they can trust" to help move the money, and get a share of it, will eventually be asked to provide financial information.

As always, you're urged not to give financial information to anyone who contacts you unsolicited.
