I average about 4 or 5 a week!

Can somebody just hunt these people down and chop off their fingers so they can't type on a keyboard?
My users keep sending it to meKristin

They want to know if its legitimate or a scam. Do not buy any of our stock!!! LOL. Oh, here's a link I found the other day. Its waaaaay too long. And these guys have waaaay too much time on their hands. But they did make sport of some Nigerian scammers...even caught them on webcam. Enjoy:

Here's the e-mail address: uce@ftc.gov

I have it in my contacts, and routinely forward the fraudulent e-mails there. I've not heard anything in response, though, but would not expect to.

Chopping their fingers off sounds pretty cruel. There is only one course of action to take here. Respond to every penis enlargement you get for the next two months. By the time you are done, you should be able to poke their eyes out with your johnson from this side of the Atlantic :-P

I think the emails are kind of amusing. If someone is stupid enough to fall for that load of bull-plop, then they probably are not smart enough to turn on a computer.

The Wendi Wilcox string of emails is a riot. Everyone should check out that link. I know a woman who placed a personal ad on AOL a few years ago. She got about 20 replies from guys, mostly married, asking to meet for sex. She could not sign in without being bobmarded by instant messages from some of these creeps. She decided to get back at them.

She placed a second ad with a picture pulled from a website of a girl in a bikini. Most of the same guys responded. She told them to meet her in a Starbucks and bring a yellow rose. She asked a few friends to come along and we staked out a table in the corner. We watched about 12 guys come wandering in with a yellow roses, two of them brought a dozen. It was funny stuff.
