First it was the Nigerian scam in which an e-mailer from Africa would ask people for bank account information to “store” money in their accounts. Those who helped out, usually found their accounts drained. Now, in what appears to be a new scam, recipients are asked to help a person who claims to be from the future fix his time machine. He says he needs a dimensional warp generator, kind of like the ones in Star Trek. State Attorney General Spokesman Scott Holste says it sure sounds like a scam to him. Holste says these types of scams are way too common, and he reminds Missourians to be on the lookout for anyone – present or future – who might be trying to get them to part ways with their hard-earned money.
