I did not post this to be "political" but to show how
otherwise intelligent people can be taken in by these 419 scams.
From ABC News:
Chelsea Clinton Engaged to Marc Mezvinsky
Clinton and Longtime Boyfriend Announced Engagement in E-mail to Friends
Nov. 30, 2009
It won't be a White House wedding, but former first daughter Chelsea Clinton is
ready to tie the knot.
ABC News has learned that Clinton is engaged to her longtime boyfriend Mezvinsky,
a spokesman for former President Clinton confirmed to ABC News.
Mezvinsky has a political pedigree and is no stranger to political scandal.
His father, former Iowa congressman Edward Mezvinsky, was released from federal
prison last April after serving a sentence for his role in a Nigerian fraud scheme.
Former Congressman Duped by Nigerian Scams

If reports are true that Chelsea Clinton and her boyfriend Marc Mezvinsky are
considering marriage, the father of the groom won't be able to attend the
wedding until he is released from prison in November 2008.
Ed Mezvinsky, a former Democratic Congressman from Iowa, is serving a seven-year
sentence for fraud after getting caught up in a series of Nigerian e-mail scams.
Initially, Mezvinsky became the victim of "just about every different kind of
African-based scam we've ever seen", federal prosecutor Bob Zauzmer told 20/20
for a report to be broadcast this evening.
But then, says Zauzmer, Mezvinsky began to steal from clients and even his own
mother-in-law to raise the money to try yet another scheme.
Mezvinsky traveled to Nigeria numerous times and ultimately lost more than $3
million as a victim of the scammers.
Prosecutors say Mezvinsky fell particularly hard for what is known as the "black
money" scam. Victims are told millions of dollars have been coated with black
ink so the money could be smuggled out of Nigeria.
The scammers then offer to sell a special, expensive chemical to remove the
black ink so the currency can be used.
Prosecutors say Mezvinsky fell for at least three separate "black money" schemes
that he thought would bring him millions.
There is no evidence the Clintons knew of any illegal activity.

This touches me in a small way. Ed Mezvinsky was my Congress critter during my college days and I worked for his unsuccessful re-election campaign. It was troubling to learn that he dug himself in so deeply in not just one but three scams.
BTW Ed has another historical footnote. He was on the House Judiciary Committee that considered the bill of impeachment against then President Nixon in 1974. He cast the deciding vote to send the bill to the full House.
