People are still falling for the 419 scam

This simply amazes me. How can anyone been so utterly daft as to fall for the old Nigerian money laundering scam? I could kinda see it when the internet was new and people were unfamiliar with the old mail version of it, but this is getting ridiculous. Every week there seems to be another report of someone who should know better getting caught up in one of the oldest tricks in the book.

Sometimes I weep for humanity's greed and gullibility 'cause this doesn't work unless both of them are present.

"Ready, Aye, Ready" was a slogan used by Canadian politicians to indicate Canada's willingness to assist the British Empire in any conflict. It remains in use as a motto for some of the Canadian military. It has almost nothing to do with the content of this blog.
