Dot Con

The Art of Scamming a Scammer

From viral comedy sensation James Veitch (as seen on TED, Conan, and The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon) comes a collection of laugh-out-loud funny exchanges with email scammers.

The Nigerian prince eager to fork over his inheritance, the family friend stranded unexpectedly in Norway, the lonely Russian beauty looking for love… they spam our inboxes with their hapless pleas for help, money, and our social security numbers. In Dot Con, Veitch finally answers the question: what would happen if you replied?
