Scambaiting 419ers is fun, but the usual caveats apply - be careful. If you don't know how to appropriately disguise yourself and your identity, things have the potential to turn nasty (especially for people geographically closer to the scammer).

I had my fun, he didn't go as far as I wanted him to, then my interest waned as well, but the guy must really thought he had struck payday.

My fav site is http://thescambaiter.com - check out some of the mp3s of phone calls the scammers have with the scambaiters, Butch Driveshaft is a real laugh.  :)
