Read this funny story about one of those e-mails from an African prince who wants to share his millions with you. I'm too much of a knucklehead to make a live link so just copy this and paste it into your address line:
Here's the beginning of the story:
"Mike is a "scambaiter," dedicated to fighting back against those who send out the notorious 419 e-mails, promising untold wealth to anyone gullible or naive enough to disclose their bank details.
Mike asked us not to use his full name because he's dealing with some heavy cross-border criminals.
Those who fall for the 419 cons are hoping for millions. His group of volunteers at 419eater.com use their computer skills to fool the scammers, to disrupt their crimes, and to have some fun at the scammer's expense."
Read the rest of it. There are some funny pictures in there too.
