    Just use a CE or UL rated switch for the voltage and current rating.

    Just make sure the switch doesn't cost the said sum of US$31,320,000 (Thirty One Million, Three-Hundred and Twenty Thousand United States Dollars) that we solicit your assistance for the transfer.

    Wouldn't that be $2.00 for the switch and $31,319,998 for shipping? That seems to be the scam everyone ran in iraq and afgan. If you really want the info I'll get you my buddy General Mutumbo to email you the specs. He lives there and gives good christians millions of dollars to just hold his money for him. He's a great guy.

    It's called scambaiting often scammers are asked to pose in various ways to "qualify" for the money they request. It's a dangerous game not to be taken lightly and folks have been kidnapped and killed with the Nigerian government turning a blind eye.
    Google 419 scam, or anu$ computer scam.
    Back to the funny bits...

    On the other hand I do not feel any pity for the victims. They are only victims for their own greed. Greed is god.

    Let us make a deal. You send as much as you can, and hopefully more. Then I will double it. Deal?

    Don't Nigerians ask for your bank account number or credit card number?
    So they can rob you.

    I don't know because I don't steal. Ask a Nigerian.

    I get many phone calls from Africans (or Americans same thing) asking for my credit card number.
    I rudely tell them where to go.
