: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.

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
