    I get about one of these scam offers a day from all over the world.

    I like to respond and ask them to call me with details. The phone number I give them is an "adult conversation" phone line that has high charges, upward of £3 per minute. I can only imagine what such a call costs from Nigeria or Malaysia.

    I know for a fact they sometimes call, as I get follow-up emails telling me the phone number was not correct and asking me for a new one. I've usually had my fun at that point and I just delete the emails.
