By now everyone on the Internet has received an e-mail from someone claiming to be a deposed Nigerian Prince who needs help getting a fortune out of the country. You'd have to be pretty gullible to fall for it, right? Actually, a lot of people have fallen prey to these scammers. In response, the website 419eater.com was created in order to scam the scammers! They usually get the scammers to do ridiculous things, and this is one of the funniest ones we've seen.
This particular user convinced the Nigerian "prince" that he needed his handwriting for a research project and got him to transcribe "Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets" in its entirety! The scammer transcribed AND scanned the entire manuscript, and it's up for all the world to see at the website. Check out a sample image on the right, and you can see all the novel at the link!
