    In the news recently:

    http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/asi...ic/8344002.stm

    They send out these emails, they hack into bank accounts, they write virus's and malware, they create cheats for online games, they play online roleplay games all day long and sell ingame credits via ebay (which totally ruins the experience for casual gamers).

    I say, beat them to within an inch of their lives!

    Latest one I've found is an e-mail from DHL saying they couldn't deliver a parcel and give you a tracking number. You're suppose to open the attachment to print off a collection label which you take to them...

    Guaranteed you open it up and there's a virus in it...

    Get a job FFS...
