    Oregon Woman Loses $400,000 to Nigerian E-Mail Scam

    An Oregon woman who is out $400,000 after falling for a well-known Internet scam says she wasn’t a sucker or an easy mark.

    Janella Spears of Sweet Home says she simply became curious when she received an e-mail promising her $20.5 million if she would only help out a long-lost relative identified as J.B. Spears with a little money up front.

    Spears told KATU-TV about the scammers’ ability to identify her relative by name was persuasive.

    “That’s what got me to believe it,” She said. “So, why wouldn’t you send over $100?”

    Spears, who is a nursing administrator and CPR teacher, said she mortgaged the house and took a lien out on the family car, and ran through her husband’s retirement account.
