Nigerian Parrot


Nigerian 419 scams are the scourge of the internet. Inboxes are flooded with requests for help in moving large sums of money which can only result in emptying the recipient’s wallet. Or it could result in comedy. Scammers sometimes run into scambaiters, who try to outwit the scammer for fun. You’ll find lots of stories of scambaiting at 419 Eater. In the above scenario, a scambaiter convinced the scammers that they could win a cash film scholarship by recreating Monty Python's Dead Parrot sketch! For comparison purposes, the original is on YouTube.

These guys are quite good at this skit, being scammers notwithstanding.
