You would think that a bank manager would know that you do not start every new word with an uppercase letter, but there you go.

Numerous sites cover the Nigerian 419 scam, notably My link, and I wonder how there can be anybody left who could have not heard of this scam, or could fall for it, yet I heard on the radio a while ago that on any given day, an average of seven people are waiting in London hotel receptions in order to hand over large sums of cash.

I have done a bit of scambaiting before, anyone else? ;)

I always wonder how such stupid people accumulate a large sum of cash in the first place.

everytime I get one I am sorely tempted but think it best not to let them know that my email account is active so never bother.

I know someone that got scammed by replying to a bank security update request. After that he used to get loads of scams come through. He started messing with them by filling in the details with things like fuk off etc but seemed to get more of them along with some virus issues. Could be coincidence but I await your results :)

Just create a new email account and cut and paste the message, they'll never check that they didn't send you the message.

I've always fancied having fun with them. One of the best one's I read was when they got them to carve C64 keyboard.

I got one when selling my car, although wasn't as complicated at first. It started they were interested (fine, their English was very good) then it turned out they wanted to pay £6k, and me refund the difference. At that point it was obviously a scam, so I gave my work address (Flat 23 instead of Unit 23 etc)... lo and behold a cheque arrived for £6k. Shame it was fake.
