And I thought it was just a joke!
I received that E-mail and I reported it to every legal investigating agency I could. The FCC was the only agency that posted it as a recorded incident! I am glad to see it finally bore a conviction! How are American victims to be remedied though?

New home for outsourcers?
I vote we move all the offshore call centers to Nigeria.

They may be just as corrupt, but at least they're not computer-illiterate.
