I received a Nigerian spam today. It was caught, but they have definitely mutated it beyond logic. Here is the kicker part:

At first I was surprised to see a link in a 419. Then I went to it and expected it to be a phony page. Then I looked closely......
Check out the site!!! Notice the little orange box in the middle of the story!!!!
This is by far, the STUPIDEST tactic I have ever seen a spammer use! Looks like he might have taken a legit news article and tried to use it in is 419. Only to have the article have a very noticable link to what a 419 scam is!  I'm simply dumbfounded :)
I dare anyone to show me something dumber then this!
