Funny thing happened today: I got simultaneously 2 Nigerian scams... from the same scammer. One was offering me only 10M$ and the other one 45$M. I'm not stupid, I'll take the biggest one!
Just for fun, I wrote back and I told the 10$M author that I got a similar offer of 45$M and that he could keep his lousy 10$M.

Of course, I sent those to

Anyways, I found this site with a list of emails from known scammers:

Have fun!

Don't write back to these scammers Jan 28, 2006

Be safe. These are criminals. The people at for example, only write to nigerian scammers through fake email addresses.

Agree with David Jan 28, 2006

Never respond to any spam or scam, you're only verifying your e-mail address that way and likely to increase the junk you'll be sent.

I report scam attempts to the authorities of the country I'm in. If everyone did that, it might help curb the problem.
