419 spammers reach new low
Got this yesterday – it looks like the generic 419 scam, until you look at the numbers involved. Basically I could stand to make 10% of $7.20 dollars! Wow 72c – that seems far more my sort of financial transaction,
Seriously though – why do these people even bother? Surely no-one gets taken in by these any more?
