Con Email ( I just couldn't help myself)
First of I have owned a packaging and shipping/printing business for 11 years now. You guys and gals have seen/heard of many emails coming from Nigeria where they are trying to start up a business or want a particular product you offer.
Here's the email I received and the response I sent back (I just was in one of those moods I guess).
From: Richard Sheapard [mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org]

Thank you for your email.
As you know the US is going through a depression and prices for just about everything is rising so the total cost for the business cards will be $2,000,000.00 (including tax and shipping charges). Keep in mind that these will be very high quality “Super Duper Premium” cards. That price includes a 75% discount to you as a first time customer as I am looking to branch out into other countries.

Not bad. I actually hear of people making a little money from those emails, by replying back to the email with something llike this:
"I will be happy to help you transfer your funds to my bank, however, my bank requires a $25 transfer fee in order for the process to proceed. Please PayPal $25 to me at email@example.com, and I will then be happy to send to you my bank info for the transfer."

At a previous job, my department head, a co-worker, and I ran one of these guys along for quite a while, with my department head playing the role of the mark, and me and the other fella playing the role of attorneys. After the guy figured out we were jerking his chain and called us out on it, we just started spamming him like mad, sending him links to any bizarre or mundane news story that was available at the moment.
