Welcome to Africa, where every person who can use a computer does so by trying to scam rich people in America (or Europe, etc.)
Welcome to America, where lazy bums try to scam people because they have nothing better to do with their lives...

Point of Story: Scammers lurk on every continent.

Except, perhaps, Antarctica?

I usually reply to scammers. I tell them to either burn, die, foward this message up their, umm, well, you know, or I spam them back. I'll foward all the spam in my inbox to all the spammers that come a knocking.
. Yep. Patrick's right. NEVER reply to a SPAM/scam/junk e-mail. If you want to mess with the scammers, check out 419 Eater for info on how to do it safely.
Just so you know - if you reply to a spam by email, your email address gets put on a list of "verified" email addresses. Spammers pay more for addresses where they know there's a real person on the other side...

Also, ad spammers often "spoof" the From: address, replacing it with the address of some innocent sap. So chances are that you are actually spamming somebody else who doesn't have anything to do with it!
you know, you really shouldn't do that...

Nono, that story is real - I know, because I've heard it from several other people too! :-D

I got one of those emails from a girl named rose, but she had six million dollars. Ha ha, my spammer is richer than yours.
