If you're in for a good laugh then you must certainly read this story. It's about a scambaiter named Mike, who has some fun with a Nigerian scammer. Mike claimed to be Father Hector Barnett of the Church of the Painted Breast.

He was pretty amazed that the scammer was actually dumb enough to send him the money!
He then tried to hit me for $18,000 for processing fees for transferring millions," Mike says.

He wrote back as Father Hector, saying that the church had plenty of money, but there was a withdrawal fee of $80.

"I persuaded him to send me the $80, which he did, inside a birthday card, by courier," Mike says.
