Do you remember your first Nigerian scam? Mine was circa 2000, if I remember correctly. How didn’t it die out yet, is a mystery to me. Anyway, I just saw something interesting: a Nigerian scam going Chinese! See this:

If you wonder what it is all about, read about advance fee fraud. There are people who like to play with it, scambaiters. I never dared to do this, but I think it might be a form of hobby.
