Thank You,

No, I didn't get it, but it sounds like a scam to me.

Nope, I did not. But getting a PM from someone whom you don't know- just like that, I would be wary.

Teamwork- A few harmless flakes working together can unleash an avalanche of destruction.

It sounds like the emails I always get from people living in places like Nigeria who want me to send them money for something or other. Looks like Nick is taking care of it, though. :)

All my life I wanted to be somebody. Now I see I should have been more specific.

I don't live in Nigeria, so it's perfectly in order for you to send money to me (as long as it's not Nigerian...) :D :D :D :D :D :D

I started with nothing - and I've still got most of it left.

Funny you should say that because a gentleman from Belgium just informed me that I won the Euromillions email lottery. All I have to do to claim my million Euros is call him and give him all my information. Funny that his phone number was from Belgium but his email IP address was in Kentucky.

Greybeard, I think you are the one with all the money. Not all of us are rich enough to own an elephant.

Hello friend,

I hope you don't mind that I contacted you this way but it is of grave importance. I (insert funky foreign name) am the arbitor of the now deceased (insert foreign monarch). Having no known benificiaries I was instructed to distribute the money to persons worthy as I see fit. To this effect and through diligent research I discovered yourself and felt that you and your talent could put it to use. I am prepared to offer you the sum of 200 000 000 (insert bank note type) which is equal to 50 million American dollars. All I would need you to do is send me your information and I will mail you the bankers cheque.(and here's the catch) Once you have deposited the cheque I will need you to imediately wire me a sum of only $20 000 for my fees. After which the cheque will bounce and the bank will confront you demanding the $20000 which you withdrew fraudulently.

Great scam huh? Ruining people's lives out of greed. May their armpits be infested with the fleas of a thousand camels.

Apparently there is a pastime of scamming the scammers.

See: http://419eater.com/

I like the story of The Church of the Holy Mackerel where they get the scammer to send a pic of himself holding a fish on his head to prove his sincerity.

I think the story of the P-P-P-PowerBook is my favourite "scam the scammer" story. Awesome. (Not that I condone such behaviour, of course. But I sure do get a chuckle reading about it.)
