I get a lot of spam everyday. I get, maybe, 60 spam messages through the email account that is attached to this website, and probably another 10 spam messages from all my other email addresses. I get messages about everything from stocks to making my (non-existent) penis larger. My personal favourite, though, are 419 Scams, also know as Nigerian Scams. I’ve got some pretty creative letters, and I am always amused when they say they have researched me but still call me “Sir.”
Yes, okay, it isn’t nice to string scammers along. Surely it causes harm somewhere along the way. But I can’t help but take a little bit of secret pleasure when I see scammers being strung along.
