Mz6's Journal: Scamming the '419' Scammers

Journal by Mz6
The NYTimes had a great article about how people are now turning the tables on the 419 scammers. 419 is another name for the Nigerian scammers, letting you know you have millions of dollars waiting for you... Anyways.. I found it pretty interesting that this has become almost a cult following now. People are responding to their emails just to get a rise out of them, even getting the scammer to send money. Anyways... I found it pretty interesting and has links to some of the sites that post their email correspondence.. and some interesting pictures.

Here is CNEts verion, instead of the NYTimes.
