    :D this site really had me amused - you need plenty of time as the stories are long, but seem genuine and they are also varied. I only read the inventor one and it took me around an hour, but some parts were pretty funny! :D

    BTW if anyone does not know what a 419 scam is it's the con when "phishing" con men tell you a family has been wiped out and left millions they could access (or something like that). So this site is basically like scamming the con men - if you liked Matchstick men you may like this too ;)

    Damn, that is a long read!
    I have had these mails myself and it is quite amusing to see you can actually have long conversations with idiots who think they are going to get something out of you.
