    I was emptying out my trash folder today and came across this little gem that I hope you guys find funny. There is a comedy sketch show in the UK called Fonejacker and in particular a charactor George Abdgwengo who is an African con artist. Here is the email that I found in my trash and at the bottom is the You Tube video which contains the sketch. Gave me a chuckle!

    Enjoy!

    Good one! I get those in my spam all the time, but having the video with it, now that makes it really funny! :lolup:
    Makes you wonder, if people are actually falling for it, since they seem to be making a career out of it.

    I just finished reading The Informant, a true story of corporate fraud and price fixing in the US during the 90's. The central character, Mark Whittacre, who became the FBI informant lost a lot of money - and that of friends - to Nigerian con artists. We're talking high salaried, high level management, not someone desperate for cash - kept sending them money - 10's of 000's of dollars at a time. Unbelievable.

    Good book by the way if you like things like that. Film's just out too.

    Yeah I saw that film a month back. It stars Matt Damon who plays a bumbling FBI informant as I recall. It's not that I did'nt like the film, it's just I think i'm allergic to Matt Damon's face!! You know that thing where you just cant stand sombodys face?! Kinda spoils things. :p
