Do people actually fool themselves with this kind of stuff?

Unfortyunately, yes. If the Nigerian scam is spammed to a thousand users, they make hook one person and that hook could be worth thousands of Dollars.

Education is the best weapon.

If you send it, we'll file abuse claims against them, and hopefully get a majority of them shut down or booted ;)

OK, how do you want me to send it to you? I can save the messages as text files and send them to you via PM's.

I think I am getting lucky these days. My average Spam box on Yahoo only gets about 10 these days instead of the average 20 or more a year ago.

If you want more, just answer one or 2 of the Spams reply to sender with no content but don't open them, then they know you are active and your Spam box will grow every day.

Then you just get sick of them .... ... .... :angry:

Another way is to open a spam e-mail that has an embeded image in it. They know how to use that to tell if there is a live person reading their spam.
