A Suggestion for Nigerian Email Scammers

By coincidence, shortly before our Il Duce was referencing “shithole” countries I was re-reading an old Presh Talwalkar post from a few years back that I always enjoyed on ‘Nigerian’ email scammers. It explains, as many know by now, why ’Nigerian’ email scams got stupider and stupider over the years, full of misspellings, bad grammar, poor English, outrageous narratives, etc. — the scammers wanted to make their messages SO obviously fraudulent that only the most gullible, naive, unthinking people would even respond (why waste time on thinking-folks wary enough to not follow through with the scam):

Anyway, I have a suggestion for how the scammers can be even more efficient: Just buy a copy of the mailing lists used by the Republican National Committee -- boy, talk about a sucker-list…
