I've just received the following e-mail message. I'm not so naive as to believe it but does anybody know what it's about? Have you had anything similar? What happens if I contact them? I've omitted certain refernce numbers etc just in case – part of me wants to believe what it says, despite everything

Porg: Yes, I guess we've all had the Nigeria letter, either by post or by e-mail or both.
Peter: No G and T's yet! OK, so you don't want to go to Galapagos  
I still can't understand what it's all about, though. Surely they can't believe I'd gamble with them if I discovered they'd already conned me once?

People fall for those 419 scams (the nigerian ones where they have to offload $30 million  (THIRTY MILLION US DOLLARS)

The scary thing is that people dissapear because of it. It's a great laugh to read them, as long as you don't fall for it, as then it ceases to be amusing at all

Id suggest anyone considering replying to such a  scam have a read through this...
