I received the most heart breaking news yesterday. I'm just riddled with grief and sadness. Apparently, a relative I didn't even know I had died in Nigeria. He and his entire family died in a car wreck ... it's so tragic.
If there's a silver lining to this cloud of despair, it's that I'm apparently his last living relative and I'm going to inherit his entire estate. Isn't that amazing ... I mean ... especially since my mother, my brother, two uncles, three aunts, and a dozen or so cousins are still alive. I mean, what are the chances?
They must know that I'm a trustworthy person ... because this morning, I got another official e-mail from the son of a Nigerian prince and he needs me to help him get money through customs. Can you imagine? I've actually got royalty e-mailing me.
[sigh] ... Jesus, I must get two dozen messages like this a week. I need to know ... seriously ... are there people falling for this bullshit? There must be, right? Because the e-mails just keep coming.
Well, someone is finally fighting back. Let me introduce you to www.419eater.com. It's the amazing story of a guy who baits the scammers by telling them he has no time to help them free their dead relatives' seized assets because he is so busy sending out $150,000 scholarships for talented carvings to display in his galleries.
He actually convinced 419 scammer, John Boko, to produce a detailed replica of a Commodore 64 computer ... you have to read it to believe it. It's actually renewed my faith in mankind. Every once in awhile, the good guys do win.
I'm a loser baby, so why don't you kill me?
