419 Scams Still Working

According to an Ars Technica article, the 419 scam still seems to be working. This scam has been around so long, it's hard to believe anyone falls for it - but Ars Technica says not. The article describes one American woman who shot and killed her husband, along with a Florida lawyer who stole $300k in order to get his hands on the millions of dollars in a mythical offshore box.

The old adage that if it seems to be too good to be true it probably is seems apposite.
