Amazingly enough, an attorney I know responded to one of those internet scams - fortunately, the day after he sent a check a colleague learned of it and they were able to stop the transaction before things got too messy.

wow - it's quite saddening to see that exxon is profiting at ridiculous margins while millions of people (myself included!) are suffering with equally ridiculous gas prices. i might start to admire exxon if they used some of those profits to develop an excellent alternative fuel system (i know that they can!) -- but i guess that's not what the point of capitalism. :(

There's a whole website dedicated to the stories of people who purposely messed with the Nigerian scammers...I wish I could remember the website address. It's hilarious!
