 The One Who Fell for the Nigerian Email Scam
Unbelievably, people don't just delete those crazy emails and the New Yorker profile this one guy who just got "suckered" in, willingly it seems. It's truly an amazing tale. Equally amazing is that the guy actually was paid some money but chose to send it back in hopes of a bigger return. Great article.
