Is it me or is Africa getting a name for producing international scammers?

About 10 years ago I received an email from a "Nigerian prince" who needed my help to get tens of millions of dollars out of his country, for which I would receive millions in "commissions." I replied (assuming he was Muslim), that Allah hated him and damned him for all eternity, that he was sinning against the Koran, that instead of 40 virgins waiting for him in the afterlife there would be devil women with razor blades in their vaginas, and on, and on. Then I "prayed" for his salvation so that Allah would not curse him and his children and his children's children. I have not received any emails like this since. I'm assuming that I've been taken off every list in Nigeria of people to try to scam.

So obvious that this is at least partially made up. Some parts are simply too convenient/foreshadowing.

Guess what, those scammers have one in common; they’re craving for “bobs and vegana”.

You don't need to defend being mean to a scammer when they are trying to scam you in the first place

New to the internet back in 2004 I did something similar but wasn't joking about. Ended up tracking scam artist to San Francisco, got his home address and personal phone number. Yes, he was a tricky guy, I messed up a bit but turned over all correspondence data to Homeland Security. Then had to explain my methods to the officer who was a bit surprised at how I came up with so much information. Interestingly enough, He was an African pretending to be in Africa so he would schedule his calls at 2:am.
