Check here for some Nigerian scam entertainment UK style "The Massage Parlour Proprietor" counter-scam is particularly good! "Baiting the scammers" could become an Olympic sport!
AND here's some videos...first off, "A Dramatisation of 419".....the typical message, by Ze Frank
then we move into an american "expose" in 4 parts.....
and if you've made it this far, here's a clip about what "they" are doing about it....well, maybe! My money's still on the "let's con the conners" option, at least we could have some fun!

There's something about vintage camping equipment that appeals. I remember avidly reading Dad's "Amateur Caravanner" (but come to think of it, is there any other sort?.....maybe I've got the title wrong!) checking out the ads for "a complete camping kit (tent, sleeping bags, primus stove etc) for 20gns"....oh, happy days! This above though is the dog's bollocks, you even get a boat!

Picture the scene, I'm on target for getting to work early for once. I'm showered, I've ironed some clothes to wear, got dressed (I can just about manage these tasks blindfold).....but then comes the moment of truth and I reach for my glasses (I always put them in the same place because without them on I can't see the damned things)....and, horror, there's nothing there!!! Frantic scrabbling around and much swearing ensues and it's 10 minutes before I find them (by touch!) sitting on the windowsill where they'd slid during the night.
Now if only I'd had a copy of the book on the left........

2. Pick up the cat and soothe him while you carry him towards the bathroom.
3. In one smooth movement, put the cat in the toilet and close both lids. You may need to stand on the lid.
4. The cat will self agitate and make ample suds. Never mind the noises that come from the toilet, the cat is actually enjoying this.
5. Flush the toilet three or four times. This provides a "power-wash and rinse".
6. Have someone open the front door of your home. Be sure that there are no people between the bathroom and the front door.
7. Stand behind the toilet as far as you can, and quickly lift both lids.
8. The cat will rocket out of the toilet, streak through the bathroom, and run outside where he will dry himself off.
9. Both the toilet and the cat will be sparkling clean.
As usual, click on the image to see the readable version
