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

What the OFM said. Done some stupid things in my
life, but not quite that bad.

I'm stupid enough to have been called a "cretin" by the local paper.
But that's rich, coming from them.

Did you get soemone to read the article to you ? If not then they probably under estimated your intelligence.
I'm as dumb as the day is long – that's why I'm moving to somewhere with less daylight – I could sure use them smarts, eh ?

Well, the koreans weren't the only dumb ones:
But the unnamed man and his daughter, who was described only as in her 30s, bought into it, and were being held for a 6.5-million-pound (US$10 million) ransom.
Okay, mister smartypants kidnapper, do you really think that someone falling for your scam has that kind of money available to them? Really?

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