For those of you who subscribe to AOL, there is a list of the 12 most dangerous e-mail scams on today's AOL homepage.

One of the items is the 419 scam. Regrettably, they do not really explain the scam well (it is a very short blurb) and they do not link to 419eater. However, what they do use (probably without permission ) is Shiver's photo of a mugu with a fish on his head and a loaf of bread in his mouth.

Since no explanation is given why putting a fish on your head has anything to do with 419 scams, it is probably confusing most viewers.

@ Bruin: Will the mugu in the photograph see himself if he goes to sign up for an AOL account?

Bruin -A couple of months ago my AOL homepage had a list of scams, and link to 419 Eater. It's how I discovered this site. I haven't left since. Shocked

It didn't show any pictures back then though.

I left a recent victim, Bernice who posted a comment on the switched.com page a heads up to scamwarners.com as well.

It looked really bizzare to have the bread and fish guy there with no explanation!

Agree... the picture doesn't make any sense. A guy with a fish on his head doesn't relate to scam; it relates to scam baiting. Smile

Anyway, if mr. mugufishhead has AOL. He'll be pleasantly surprised to see his pic again. Laughing
