There are a lot of people from Africa and South America on BTC exchange websites, some of them laundering money.

I have been working with Africans for over a year. There is honest business there.

I'm a Nigerian prince with tons of bitcoin, but I need to pay someone to recover my wallet. Please send me .01 bitcoin so I can pay them to do it and you will be rewarded.

Of course I will help you. Give your wallet address. Just make me minister of education, okay?
