    THE NIGERIAN E-MAIL SCAM
    I mentioned on the air yesterday that there’s been a huge increase in those Nigerian e-mail scam letters of late. You know the letters I’m talking about. Some character writes to tell you of his important position in the Nigerian government. He tells you that he has about $30 million dollars he needs to get out of the country. If you will help him he will let you keep about one-third of it. If you fall for the scam you’ll end up with an empty checking account.

    Well … It seems that some 72-year-old Czech fell victim to the scam. He lost his life savings. He then got his gun, walked over to the Nigerian embassy in Prague, and killed a Nigerian diplomat


    And the MSNBC article on it:

    If any of you guys get any e-mail or other solicitations like this just tell them you've got some extra speakers out in the van that you can sell them cheap.

    I still find it unbelievable that there are actually people out there who will respond to spam email or buy things from telemarketers. Just incredible.
