Too Bad, Fatai Hamza
Like anyone else who has an email account, I receive a lot of the Nigerian 419 scam solicitations. Usually, I delete them but often I string these scammers along because I figure that the more time they waste with me, the less time they have to prey upon others (plus it's fun after corresponding with them for a month or so and making them think I'm going to send them $50,000 to read their responses after I email them that I knew it was a scam all along). The latest scammer I've been corresponding with is someone who calls himself Fatai Hamza. I can't correspond with him anymore because his email account is no longer valid. I guess the only way he'll hear from me is for him to Google his alias and come to my site.
Addendum: Here is the last email I received from Fatai. I'm surprised that in his emails he keeps praising Allah--as if the typical American would appreciate that:
Dear Mr Scoobie,

your effort towards this business preposition.

hope for the entire family.
