If you have the time, you can see how one man dealt with a plaintive plea from a Nigerian gentleman. Unless you can type with more than one finger, it is quicker to use MW and Spamcop. :cheers

There's another very good site here - - which has some very funny correspondence with scammers.
After persuading a 419 scammer to spend an entire week going from bank to bank, desperately trying to find one that would accept a succession of extremely dubious payment slips, Gilbert managed to turn the tables on the scammer: he persuaded the scammer to send money to HIM via Western Union, rather than the other way round!

After a catalogue of failed transfers to the scammer which Gilbert blamed on network problems, Gilbert suggested that the scammer send him the money to check that the Western Union network was now operating without any problems. Almost unbelievably, the scammer complied.
