A 65-year-old South Korean man got a random "spam" e-mail saying he had won tens of millions of dollars in the lottery, and went to South Africa to collect. The greedy man not only had not entered any lotteries in Africa, but stupidly took his daughter with him when he went for the money….

Coughed up for two tickets to South Africa, might as well give it a try.
