    What a legend, go Mike! It must feel so good to scam a scammer. Lol, 249 hand written pages of Harry Potter, he got so pwned!

    This it entertaining, I like it. But really what should happen is Nigeria should be disconnected from the rest of the worlds net connection. I'm sure the Nigerian government would soon sort out the problem of 419'rs if their entire country was disconnected from the rest of the worlds internet. Do this in every country the 419 scammers use. I'd also like to see China added to the list to stop gold farmers.

    Given that that'll never happen though, this stuffs neat.

    There was a story long ago of somebody getting the scammers to send pictures of themselves holding a cartoon of milk with a fish on top of their heads? It was pretty hilarious too. Can't remember the back story he told the scammers to do it but the pictures where funny.

    YES! My God, that was the best 419eater ever. I think it might have been in that one where he got the scammer to send him money as well.

    Good for Mike, someone needs to undermine these 419 and other scammer a**hats. Granted if people wernt so stupid to fall for hopes of free money this wouldnt be a problem anyway :(

    Thanks man :clap: , had no time to do that earlier.

    BWAH-HA-HA-HA :hehe: I love the "HHGTTG" in his "title" - and surely "PhD" = Piled higher & Deeper

    I'd even consider sending support to his site if I wasn't so :worried: paranoid about scammers.

    Hahaha, Arthur Dent; that's hilarious. I'm going to start doing stuff like this--I've already been planning on answering telemarketers in strange ways (pretend they called a pizza place, say you're dead, etc.)

    The problem is that these scammers arnt the ones crafting the C64, or writing the 260 odd pages of harry potter. It is the poor people who are paid to do this and slave hours upon hours because they have no other job. The 419 scammers only pay them pennies and only when they get payment themselves. Unfortunatly this doesnt happen so the scammer doesnt really lose. Most of them are smarter than that and are probably in some sort of gang.
    its a nice attempt but I really doubt the scammers are the ones doing all the work.
