Ever wondered what happens if you do send a scammer money?

The Herald interviews Owen Glenn:

Most outrageous request received in a letter/email, asking you for money?

“Please send me Fiji dollars 10,000 my Auntie is sick.”

I had never met Auntie but I sent the money regardless and then four weeks later I receive another email, “Auntie died and I need another Fiji dollars 100,000 for her wake, can you help?”

This confirms what I thought would happen.
