My name is Phil. I opened my in-box, one day to discover that I had received an "offer" of vast riches from a gentleman in Nigeria. All I had to do is help him smuggle the cash out of the country using my bank account. This is the classic Nigerian web scam (419 Scam for US readers) that you will have heard about in the papers and television when they are short of news.

Now most people see this as the con that it is and delete the mail. I suppose I could have as well but I decided to reply and see what happened. And then I did it again, and again. I probably shouldn't laugh at these people but I do, and so will you.
