By now, everybody is probably aware of Nigerian 419
scams usually purporting to be from some close
relative
or business agent of a deceased African dictator whose
demise, if one has been paying attention to world
affairs
at all, was usually long overdue.
Now it seems the scam artists include fans of the UK
sci-fi show "Red Dwarf".
I have, it seems been selected from amongst the
multitudes to be the beneficiary of one of these
"opportunities" through the kind agency of one
"Lister Rimmer".
I'm almost tempted to engage in a fishing expedition.
Trolling gear would be most suitable I'm thinking.
