Jean, there are about a dozen warning signs in the "offer." Chief among them: Too complicated.

There's absolutely no reason for an organization to be seeking models all around the world rather than rounding them up locally, especially if they're in London or New York.

Beyond that, any mention of Nigeria in one of these come-ons is a self-indictment of a scam. The Nigerian government thinks bilking westerners out of their hard-earned cash is a great way to bolster the local economy. Thus, they allow scammers to operate freely as long as it's international scamming.

Finally, how could an outfit capable of putting on an event such as this have been anonymous for so long? Billboards? Have you seen billboards for such an event? There's no name for the organization, so there's no way to check it out. The telephone is most likely a cell phone. What organization would rely on cell phones for something like this?

These "opportunities" are simply bogus. Once you learn to read between the lines, you'll be able to spot them immediately.

If you have time to burn, playing their game does one good thing for other people. It keeps them busy with you and not with some poor sucker who's about to send them money. Hope you enjoyed yourself.
