There is a very interesting article on the front page of the money section of todays Guardian newspaper ( www.guardian.co.uk) titled
Is this the most wicked scam ever

It tells of artists and clergymen ( who are perhaps seen as liberal and benevolent) being targetted with hand written letters delivered by post. The letters are in childrens handwriting on school exercise book paper supposedly from Ugandan homeless orphans who need help with school fees then of course a whole host of other costs. One artist and his wife sent a total of 3335 before seeing the same scam being highlighted by other Guardian readers.

There are also a few other articles on page 3 of the money section that expose lotttery,award notification and other scams
