Subject: (urth) OT: Nigerian scams Date: Wed, 11 Dec 2002 14:03:41 +1100 Not a Wolfean take on Nigerian "4-1-9" scams, but very damn funny nonetheless: Check out http://www.quatloos.com/brad-c/directory01.htm. Record of a guy's counter-scamming of the scammers. "The Porcine Princess Chronicles" and "The Senator's Beach Pledge" both highly recommended. Quatloos is a magnificent site devoted to chronicling and exposing all the various low-life scams going around - very useful if you have relatives or friends about to quaff on some kind of snake oil. Slightly more Wolfean perhaps is http://www.quatloos.com/cm-omega/cm-omega.htm. Visions of the land of milk & honey, millianarian yearnings, fundamentalism & dumb greed combined in one of the most pathetic displays of human stupidity ever. - AB --
