That's a good one. It's sad, though, how many people fall for these scams.

I got one just the other day from Bank of America telling me that there was a problem with my bank card. Yeah, the problem is I don't bank at Bank of America. I forwarded the e-mail to the FTC.

When will people ever learn?

419 scam

Post by phantazm » Fri May 21, 2010 12:51 pm

Advance-fee fraud; a confidence trick in which the target is persuaded to advance sums of money in the hope of realizing a significantly larger gain...

The number "419" refers to the article of the Nigerian Criminal Code dealing with fraud. The American Dialect Society has traced the term "419 fraud" back to 1992...

Then again, the internet would be safer, and our work easier,
if all the scammers came around here first,
before the rest of the world...

Very true. Visiting the Lions Den always exposes them right out of the gate. Seems like these morons would put this site on a "blacklist for spammers" (if there even is such a thing).
