  1. A TV guru like you deserves his own island.

    But really, why is it always Nigeria? I think they could sucker more people if there was some variation on those war-torn African countries.

  2. You may enjoy this site: http://www.419eater.com/

    I wasted way too much time reading these things when I first found the site. The Hall of Shame alone is worth a look.

  3. I’ve gotten e-mails just like these! These are scams!

  4. Nick C, please put your review of True Blood up soon !

  5. These things are ridiculous. Like I would give my info to someone that can’t even manage correct grammar in a “formal” letter. I wouldn’t give it anyway cause it’s fake, but my point still holds.

  6. haha…Julia beat me to it. I love that site! The “art submission” ones are the best.

  7. and I just won the internet lottery without buying a ticket!

    It’s amazing how fast the scam people get to brand new email addresses that only exist for this blog. It’s really amazing.

  8. Sorry, Charlie! (I mean, “Sorry, Nick C!). I already gave MY information to Dr. Frank Ibe, so I’M the one getting the goods – not you. You’ll just have to keep blogging for a living! You snooze, you lose! With that kind of cash, I’ll be able to build my own parish!

  9. Some Guy named John

    For a country that is so war torn, its amazing how much money the Nigerian banks are holding for unknown dead relatives.

    My personal favorite ones are the emails that tell you that your “family member” died in some airplane crash.
