Anyone who has used e-mail for anything other than writing to their spinster aunt has probably received scam letters of various sorts as a result. Unfortunately some of the more naive and/or greedy recipients of these e-mails have lost money, or even ended up in physical danger when they've been taken in.

You can read about some of the activities of these antiscammers here.
