Nigerian Spam

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

Coming from Africa I have warmed a little to the 'creativity' displayed by the 'Nigerian' spammers. The mails more often than not make me chuckle. Here an exmple I just received:

... do not need to be araid as I will use my power in office to manipulate the documentation instating you the next of kin ok.

I am assuring you that this transaction and its procedures is 100% legal and  ...

One can almost go so far as expand the definition of a spammer as someone who can sometimes bring a smile to your face :-) In my mind's eye I see a nigerian school class hard at work at a creative writing project ... if only one could be be certain that no-one would be so gullible as to fall for the scam.

Regards

Rudolf

Plus there are people that lose all of their money and even their lives to these scams (look at www.419eater.com). I don't think it's very funny. It is amazing that people fall for it, but there are people out there that do.
