Just to make sure everybody's clear, the website he's linking is the real BBC website. (Kudos to the BBC for leaving the news available instead of making people pay for archive searches.)

419 scammers do register some domains for themselves, but they're usually going to be the fake banks and fake shipping companies they'll use later once you've responded. They usually link to real news stories to try to deceive people in the first place.

You can have some real fun with these. Make sure you use an email account you can live without if it all goes belly up, have some fun making up names and use gmail as it does not show the headers which makes it hard to track you down, use a proxy server to hide your real location and NEVER EVER give out any real information.

If they ask you to telephone them, say you had an accident and are deaf so you cannot use a phone, if they ask you to SMS them the same accident blinded you, if they want to get onto an instant messenger the accident also cut your hands off and you have to type with your nose, keep giving them a little hope that you might be greedy and in a hurry, if they ask for a photocopy of your passport, find a nice big .dll file on your PC, rename it passport.jpg and email it to them, when they say they can't open it, tell them you can read it fine and it must be their computer...........the list is endless, see how far you can push it, but remember that the more time they spend on you, the less time they have to scam other people and if they go quiet on you, find another one.

2 final tips/words of warning
1. These people are scammers/criminals, nothing they ever tell you has a grain of truth in it.

2. Some of these scammers are serious organised criminals (quite rare as they have bigger fish to fry), so never give out any real information, not even your country of residence, if in any doubt, drop it like a hot brick and scramble the email account password so you can't get back in.

Let's make them work even harder for our money, that they are NOT going to get.
