I'm just popping back for a moment here, to check in. As you have probably figured out, most of my energies have been going toward The Daily Science Fact lately. That stuff is hard!!
My main reason for writing today, however, is a little bit selfish: I just wired approximately $2000 to a man(?) named Nipple van Citroen, who claims to be a Dutch viscount. Apparently he needed the $2000 to get access to his castle (the Dutch government foreclosed on it) so he could pick up some of his family's art to sell. Depending on the art market, he assured me that he could get me $20-30,000 in return for my loan.
So . . . does this seem like a good deal, or did Nipple scam me? Has anyone else dealt with this guy?
