    As in "I caught a scammer |------------ THIS ------------| big", not the band.

    Why do I ask? Well, I got an e-mail today that floored me - not because it was an intricately styled HTML e-mail, designed to fool me into believing it was from the actual company. Not because it linked me to a web site that looked and felt like the real thing.

    But because of the sheer inanity of it all, that whoever was sending this out was likely getting people to respond to this crap:

    Never mind that it was addressed to someone other than me and that it was not from any "nationalcity.com" address. They weren't even trying to be clever.

    Awww.. I thought this was going to be hippie stories about the band. :(

    I still enjoy the variations of the original Nigerian scam.
