Sunday sniggers

Scam-o-Rama is always worth a click.....

"The letters posted here illustrate (hilariously unsuccessful) attempts at ADVANCE FEE FRAUD. The sender claims to be a bureaucrat, banker or royal toadie, who wants to cut you, and only you, in on the financial deal of a lifetime.....

.....Most such e-mails come from West Africa, chiefly Nigeria, or Nigerian expatriates (who are happy to scam other Nigerians). There are of course scam artists elsewhere. But these guys are special. Some people write them back just to waste their time. This is the art of scambaiting. Welcome to the Scamology."

This one, (WINKY WANKY WOO where "Squadron Leader Harry Fadgina's virgin, word used advisedly, bait takes the Prince-Albert-in-a-Can joke to new depths and demonstrates classic scambaiting technique, such as divide-and-conquer, insistence on laborious use of code-words, and all-around time-wasting.) had me in stitches. Also worth reading "Don't False Me to Do Stupid Thing to You", the fake death threat, I've never had one of these yet, but I'll enjoy it when it comes!
