By now everyone must be familiar with the 419 scam. It usually takes the form of an apparently confidential email from an important somebody (banker, politician etc) in a West African country who desperately needs your help to get a large sum of money out of the country. In exchange for your help you'll receive a percentage of the money. The scam works by getting gullible people to deposit money into a Nigerian bank account to 'activate it' prior to the big transfer taking place. Amazingly, it seems that people still fall for it.

Anyway, some enterprising individuals decided to get their own back on the scammers by pretending to be Harry Potter.The results are very funny.
