    ...and while I laughed at the gullibility of those who fall for such nonsense, it started me thinking....isn't there SOME way of creating a web-crawler or such that would let someone reply to this crap, infect the host system with a bug that would then DIVERT ALL THE MONEY THEY HAVE STOLEN AND GIVE IT TO CHARITY!?!?!?
    Surely there must be a way to get back at these bastards and give them a dose of their own medicine?

    Thanks, Wrestler...but I know how to block them. That wasn't my question.....can't someone write a code that will wipe them out financially? Or at least cause their systems to melt down completely?

    Where the hell is Jack Bauer when you need him anyway!!!

    maybe it´s not all bad: people dumb enough to fall for this would likely be giving money to support Sarah Palin or James Dobson if it were not removed from them

    No. What you can write is a virus that you put in an email like that, that steals the logins to internet banking of whoever opens it.

    Then the hard choice.... to charity or to your offshore account?
