It's funny... The Nigerian scam _is_ so widespread, and frankly I think I
get at least one a day, that it has become cliche.  It's amazing to me that
anyone's even serious about sending it out any more.

(In other words, it's hard for me to imagine that honest-to-goodness
Nigerian scammers are the ones sending them out, and not 17-year-old
hacker-wanna-be anti-establishment "let's mess with the dumb people" punk kids!)
