I wouldn't exactly call them stupid,these scammers can be very convincing.Especially to those who never heard of the 419 scams.I thank God that I checked into it before I gave them any info on me or else i too would have been a victim.
Ohh and you know how many stupid Americans actually fall for that scam??

To answer your question, the bombs will be detonated in Nigeria by week's end. Praise Allah" and the guy answered back all panicking and saying he was going to report me to the police...It was absolutely hilarious.
And no, the "secret service" or whatever has not contacted me.

You've got to use a little common sense.
