The Null Device
It looks like the latest angle in 419 ("Nigerian") scams is not millions of dollars of oil revenues or Iraqi gold but free puppies, as evidenced by the following email:
MY NAME IS Rev. Sis Dora Martins, I AND MY HUSBAND ARE ON A CHRISTIAN MISSION TO AFRICA AND I CAME ALONG WITH MY PUPPY. AFTER A WHILE I NOTICE THAT THE AFRICAN WEATHER IS NOT GOOD FOR THE PUPPY AND I HAVE NOT BEEN ABLE TO TAKE GOOD CARE OF HER THE WAY I ALWAYS DO BECAUSE OF MY JOB. I NEED SOMEONE TO ADOPT HER AND TAKE CARE OF HER THE WAY I ALWAYS DO. IF YOU CAN TAKE GOOD CARE OF HER DO SEND A REPLY AND I WILL EMAIL YOU HER PICTURES. I HOPE TO READ FROM YOU. THANKS AND GOD BLESS.
