BLOG: 419 Is No Joke In Your Town

We've all gotten the infamous Nigerian "419" scam emails, and most of us just laugh at them (this one, I'll admit, is pretty amusing). But I got to see a different side of one today, when I got an email from a guy claiming to be a (fictional) son of a Nigerian politician who died last year. What particularly rankled is that this particular politician was the father of one of my close friends from law school (we lived in the same 6-room basement my first year). Some nitwit out there is trying to make money off this man's good name in the wake of his death. Which is, even aside from the fraud involved, a pretty rotten thing to do.
