From the Los Angeles Times:

Steve Harvey : Only in L.A.
Author invests time in scammer's e-mails
And he finds a way to make a little money on an offer to make big bucks.
November 27, 2007

Ad writer Rich Siegel of L.A. has fun scamming a scammer in the book
"Tuesdays With Mantu: My Adventures With a Nigerian Con Artist".

Tired of receiving e-mails promising him unimaginable riches, Siegel
answered one, posing as a simple-minded factory worker who was more than eager to deposit $45.5 million in his bank account -- and keep 25%.

"Do you think the money will arrive before Xmas, it would make shopping
a whole easier", Siegel wrote in his intentionally ungrammatical manner.

Right now I am getting pissed with your responses
And still you later claimed there are snakes on the road to the Western Union
Please for the sake of humanity help Mr. Felix and I to get this money
