A woman who "doesn’t think she’s a sucker or an easy mark" is out $400,000 to Nigerian scammers. It seems that she cleaned out her husband’s retirement account, took out a mortgage on their house and took out a lien against their car. This is a bit sad to see, but it does seem to me to be the behavior of a first class sucker.
Wouldn't it be ironic if it turned out she was really in on the scam? Maybe she secretly wanted to divorce her husband so she empties their accounts and goes into major debt because of a "scam". Then Bang! She files for divorce and the scammers kick her back a percentage.
That's probably not what happened here but that would make a nice scam.
Ahhh now that *is* an interesting idea. Get yourself a bank account in Nigeria, funnel all of your available assets to it, then tell the world what a sucker you are. Dump the spouse, then come back around after a bit and cash out. Nice and neat.
