People still fall for this?

From The Scotsman:

Jacobus Groenen received an e-mail from the son of a late African mining chief granting him millions if he collected two cash-filled boxes stored in Scotland.

Mr Groenen was so convinced he jetted to Glasgow from his home in Holland dreaming of a massive windfall. But, when he arrived he soon discovered he was the victim of an elaborate global scam targeting computer users.

This ticks me off because I know one day someone will have millions of dollars in escrow, and they will email me to ask for like, five bucks to get it cleared up. Then I'll be all like, "Whatever, loser." And I will miss out! Thanks, conmen.
