What gets me is that the bastards have moved on to sending out emails, often working through legitimate job-hunting websites, that promise jobs at just big enough money to sound legit and attractive. Sure enough, make the mistake of following these through and the emails come requesting money as "agency fees" and to cover "set-up costs." They've got your meail address then, even if you realise it's a con and send no money. So you get deluged with all sorts of shit.

Should tropes used in scambaiting go under here or somewhere else? There are some rather epic tales of scammers getting pretty well and truly fucked out there.
