    Steve: Please tell me why you would think that anyone would believe that NEXUS or GOOGLE would need someone from WSU to notify anyone that they had won $500,000.00?

    The only thing you aren’t asking for is their SS and BANK ACCOUNT numbers. Why don't you spend your time studying at WSU get you education and go to work?

    Keep this up and I may be forced to support you in one of the countries fine penal systems.

        Some people have told us that they sent thousands of dollars and never received what they were promised. They said they were told to send money for taxes, to clear customs or for some other purposes, which the scammers use to trick them.

        Other persons said they told the scammers to deduct the money from their winnings, but the caller got angry and hang up.
