419 MadLibs – Scam-O-Matic, the Original Scam Creation Tool

The Internet Patrol - Patrolling the Internet for You

Every once in a while you have to just laugh at the 419 scammers who abound on the Internet. Ok, maybe twice in a while, as we all just had a good laugh looking at the pictures at the 419 Eater website.

Anyways, a colleague, after reading about the 419 Eater site, sent us the link to another scam slamming site, “Urgent & Confidential: Dean Cameron’s Nigerian Spam Scam Scam” web site, at SpamScamScam.com.


Dean, it seems, has not only honed the art of baiting scammers, but has in fact turned his art into … well … art. Not surprising, really, as Dean is an accomplished and oft-employed actor – you may best remember him from Summer School, Ski School, or Rockula. No? Well, maybe not – then take my word for it. He’s also appeared on Will & Grace, and in Mad About You.

In any event, Dean Cameron has put together a live multi-media show based on his own experiences in baiting a 419 scammer, in which he “assumed the identity of a sexually confused Florida millionaire, whose only companions are his houseboy and cats, and began a 9 month correspondence with the scammer,” explains the web site. The show is based on the actual correspondence between Dean and his scammer, all of which is available on Cameron’s website.

But the thing to which I most want to direct your attention is actually Dean’s Scam-o-Matic 419 scam letter generator. It’s a Mad Libs-style form – it asks you for nouns (a bunch of them), adjectives, and numbers, and then when you press “submit” it spits out a 419 letter to rival the best – only much funnier.

In fact, generally, this is a very funny site, by a very funny man.

Except for his guacamole, which is decidedly unfunny. I mean, who puts sour cream in their guacamole? Yuck!
