Soccer Scams

Dear outstanding Nigerian soccer player,

I have reason to believe that you are an outstanding Nigerian soccer player, and I have been authorized to contact you by a renowned English soccer club. This club is interested in offering you a tryout and signing you to a contract worth millions of dollars. Unfortunately, due to FIFA regulations, this soccer club cannot appear to pay directly for your tryout. You must send me $1,000 dollars as soon as you get this so we can make all the arrangements, and the money will be returned to you as soon as you reach England. There is no time to waste …

This email is made up, but it turns out the scam is all too real. Read about it at ESPN.
