They end up in my junk mail, but it still bugs me as I'm too pedantic and check to make sure nothing went in there by mistake......I'm starting to really hate Nigeria.......

My father had a lot of fun with one of those Nigerian scammers. The guy had included his phone number in the e-mail. It was the scammer's home telephone number too. My father checked it out first, making sure that it was indeed someone trying to transfer billions into his bank account and not some poor soul whose number had been nicked from the phone book. Once he was sure, he called the guy's house at 4:00AM Nigerian time for about a week, swearing at the top of his lungs the moment his call was answered. It didn't cost us hardly anything, because we get call cards to phone family members back home in South Africa.

He still calls up his "Nigerian friend" every now and then, just to keep him on his toes.

Just make sure to never give any of your real information. Get a gmail address, they don't give out your IP address. Fake name, fake address, if they ask for your phone number make up an excuse - I'm deaf, my phone is broke - or go to a anonymous web voicemail like K7 http://www.k7.net/about.htm

The 419eater site I posted earlier has a lot of good tips.

I've been assisting the rebel fighters with regular deductions from my pay-cheque


The sad thing is, these people can ruin the reputations of those trying to make a real difference. If you fall for one of the scams, and get burned, you might be less inclined to support something truly legitimate.

This is one I received the other day...the scary part is how it references an actual news event


GREETINGS MY BELOVED,

Getting your contact was not an easy task because since I am not computer literate, I ordered an expert to seek a fellow very far away and he went to the institute of International Business to apply and he paid them the charges.

I am Lady Toreth, married to Sir Richard Hughes an Englishman who is dead; he died in a train bomb blast in Spain when he was going for his medical check up in 2004.Please copy and paste this Internet link for more information on the incident.

http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/europe/4340881.stm

Our life together as man and wife lasted for three decades without child. My husband and I made a vow to uplift the down-trodden and the less-privileged. I can adduce this to the fact that he needed a Child from this relationship, which never came.

When my late husband was alive, he made a safe deposit of a certain sum which I will disclose to you on my plan on what I will want you to do. This fund was derived from his vast estates and investment in capital market) with his bank in Europe.

Recently, my Doctor told me that I have limited days to live due to the cancerous problems I am suffering from. I have decided to donate this fund to you and want you to use this gift which comes from my husbands’ effort to fund the upkeep of widows, widowers, orphans, destitute, and persons who prove to be genuinely handicapped financially.

Being aware of the bourgeois religion of my relatives and the misused of his previous investment and ventures. I have decided to put smile on the face of the less privileged.
Reach me with my private email: hughtoreth@yahoo.com.hk

Sincerely Yours,

Toreth Hughes

Before that Nigerian scam was all over the place, I was at my grandma's reading a Reader's Digest article about a man who tried to help the e-mail writer out...I feel like it went so far that the scammed ended up IN Nigeria, meeting the scammer and that he was left there after the money was taken with no way back or something like that...seriously though, it was unreal.
