I read a great story a while ago where someone was trying the old nigerian 
scam - where some poor slob has 8 million in a bank but only you - a total 
staranger can get it out - anyway, the mark in this case began working with the 
scammer but to prove his trustworthiness the scammer had to send a 1 dollar 
bill to the scam-ee. He eventually did. The email dialog was hilarious. True or 
not it was a great read.
