Scamming the Scammers

Published on .

Most of us delete email spam. Rich Siegel, a veteran creative director whose resume includes stints at TBWA/Chiat/Day and Y&R, answered his and turned the experience into a book. Tuesdays with Mantu: My Adventures with a Nigerian Con Artist collects all of Siegel's electronic correspondence with one Mantu Ibr, a practioner of the Nigerian Advance Fee Scam. Siegel plays the dupe and takes the would-be con artist on a wild, wild ride -- collecting a lot of fake documents in the process. For more information, visit the book's website.
