But those days seem to be gone. Nowadays, replying to the initial e-mail just re-routes the "live e-mail address" flag generated by your response to another scammer.
This is why I've been notified, twice, that I've won EUR 6,250,000 in the SuperEnaLotto ... in two separate drawings, no less. Lucky me, huh?
These notifications, of course, ask for all manner of personal details, hoping the recipient (who was, presumably, naive enough to reply to the Nigerian bank scam e-mail) won't notice the fact that the only identifying information the "Lottery Customer Care Division" has is an e-mail address, which, logically, should be the only information requiring verification prior to the disbursement of funds.
Using this logic, I sent a PayPal invoice, linked to the e-mail account I used, to Mr. Robert Cavialli, Fiduciary Agent. In the letter, I asked if I could call him "Bobby."
Unfortunately, PayPal sets a transaction limit of EUR 8,000. I guess the question now is how easy it would be to send Bobby 781 invoices for EUR 8,000 each (or 1562 invoices, since I won two drawings).
