Don't be a Mugu.

This site has tons of submitted nigerian scams, most of them are pretty hilarious.
Scam o Rama: The Lads from Lagos

The names they choose are usually really obvious because they use two first names rather than a proper surname.

Facebook is becoming a common place for scammers to make a fake profile of someone from your friends list, re-friend you, then hit you up in FB chat with a story about that they're traveling in London and being robbed and asking funds be sent via Western Union.

When I come across these guys on Craigslist I usually **** with them for a bit because they are really easy to make angry. I've already gotten several death threats, but I counter act them with the likes of voodoo curses and they back off.

Ha! Anyplace where the weather's good attracts that element. When I lived in Ft. Lauderdale in the '80s, we used to call it "Fraud Lauderdale". If you want some amusing reading, Google "International Gold Bullion Exchange".
