    I have always wanted to, but never actually did, reply to something like this with a job title of FBI Computer Crimes and Fraud Investigation Supervisor and have the e-mail spoofed to show it as something@fbi.gov (or maybe even Interpol?) and fill in all the phone numbers and addresses with the number of the FBI (or Interpol?) headquarters and preferred payment By Personal Delivery at FBI Headquarters, Office Identification 10 T... (Hint: Spell it out using the abbreviation for identification and writing it out on paper.)

    I wonder what the scammer would think when he/she got that response. Obviously it would be sent from a anonamized throwaway account preferably from a public access computer in a different city and state.

    The spammer would love for you to respond- that way he knows that your email address is a good one.
