I just got this email. I suspect many on the board have. I just thougt I'd post it just in case. If your a regular here you probably would avoid it anyway. But you want to advise new students and others who may be tempted;

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
Hello:

I am an independent archival research and I have
japanese sword (katana) with the blade from XVIII
century and I would like to sell it for the reasonable
price. If you think you could have an interest in such
antique item, please keep me inform. I also have a
tanto from XIX century.

I am waiting for your answer.

All the best.

Pawel

I've seen other similar scam warnings on other forums regarding a Pawel Novak, from Poland.

Wow, is he still trying to pull this scheme? He's been at it for years. Steer clear folks. This is about as legit as those lottery winners in Nigeria.

I've tweaked the subject and made this post sticky. I'll leave it up for awhile to make sure the word is still getting around.

Maybe the lottery winners are a scam.. but those doctors from Nigeria that want to give you a certain amount of money for giving them your bank account information to help them (basically) screw their government out of taxes are completely legit!!
