I'm just watching a TV programme about people who believed letters they've received saying they've won huge prizes in foreign lotteries they hadn't even entered. They always then had to pay money out in order to "release" the cash. Tens of thousands of pounds sometimes.
Let me think for a moment, should I have any sympathy for these morons? I think not. They deserve all they (don't) get! People as stupid as that don't deserve to have any money.
Update: One old woman sent the fraudsters £21,000.
