2. Oh no that comes later

after you reply and let the guy know how excited you are to be receiving the windfall. Don't forget to compliment him on his fantastic use of English.

If I have time I'll sometimes string these idiots along for awhile using a junk email account, it can be fun.

6. 419eater.com I got tired of it, but this one is just a hoot. I guess they know I'm a leftist.

 

My favorite ever was the one where they got the Nigerian scammers to act out, and to film themselves acting out, Monty Python's dead parrot sketch.

9. Looks legit.

Because official communications from supranational financial institutions always begin "hope all is well with you and the family".
