More Web Cleanup

I ran across an interesting blog today. 

I felt that this one was worth noting, because I don’t recall having seen a 419 disguised as a conference invitation before. The bait here is the part that says, “Richard Dolls Foundation has set up an Access Fund to support the travel costs for all qualified participants.” Depending on their modus operandi, they’ll either ask for money up front (and never send you anything in return), or send you a fake cheque, get you to bank it, and then send them money based on the proceeds — leaving you to foot the bill when the cheque bounces.

This blog looks like a lot of fun and I suggest you check it out.
