Read last week's New Yorker about the man who answered one of the Nigerian spamming emails and what happened to him! Greed seems be the operative word, not silly in that case.

I can't help but notice that the article made frequent references to Worley's religious faith. Must be a pretty faith-filled guy to have gotten as far as he did into that scam.

I can't judge too much though. I got suckered out of $25 a few weeks ago by a man posing as a neighbor in a tight spot. Turned out he was a complete fake, not who he claimed to be. I now look closely at everybody who matches his approximate description. I'm hoping to see him again.
