419 Conference Scam

We received another kind of 419 type scam e-mails. Most of them read: Congratulations you have won US$ 500 000 000 in some mysterious sweepstakes that you did not enter. Although more informed about this kind of online con game, many of us still fall prey to the lure of easy money, and more often than not you will find that people that should know better, often do not. A lot of information and publicity has been done around these 419 scams, and is seems that more people are now aware of them and take such communication with a pinch of salt.
