There is a guy in Columbus sending out emails to haunt owners telling them if you send him $500,000.00 or something like that you can get back 6 million for your haunted attraction and you DO NOT have to pay it back. Has anyone got this email? SEVERAL haunted house owners have been getting this email... if you call the guy there is just him who answers the phone no office staff, no receptionist just him... who believes this is true?

Has anyone spoke to the guy? The email basically claims if you buy a certain kind of bond and send over $500k you will get back 6 million and won't have to pay it back ever.

Is this a scam or what?

Who got the email?

LOL Yes, I got that too. It says that with an investment of only $500k you can get $6 million. It was one of the most blatant scams I've seen and I immediately deleted it. It was interesting though that they are targeting haunted attractions.

Did you report them? I copied it and sent it to the FBI there is no way this is anything but a scam... someone should report them to the other group.

That's definitely a scam.

I, on the other hand, am offering the real deal. You only have to send me $400,000 and you'll get back $8 million. Cash is preferred.

Trying to either scare you or sucker you by saying they are the IRS and the address on the email doesn't even have your name on it!
Good bookkeeping, way to go, what's my name again? You don't know?
HAHAHAHAH!
There was a recnet Yahoo news item about a former US politician who spent jail time because he financed some of those Nigeria get rich quick email scams!
You sure can't blame foreighners for all of it then, can we?
By the way, Larry, bring that $500,000 in small bills to the Mount Carroll motel, room 666, pay no attention to the weeds growing up through the cracks in the parking lot, I'll be sure I write you out a receipt!

I find it amusing that anyone has a spare $500,000 lying around these days. Makes you wonder why this guy isn't living on some tropical island since he's obviously so successful...

What they are not telling you is that you are paying them U.S. dollars and they are paying you back in Taiwanese dollars, which are only worth 1/32 of a US dollar. I'll match and BEAT his price, and pay you back $10,000,000,00!
