No kidding, 419 Scams are still very active and they try to reach out to the mass via Flickr and I guess other social network as well! I’ve received this email (see below) from this Mrs. Elizabeth Mbah from Ivory Coast sent to me via Flickr.
As email spam filtering is getting better and better, sending email via social networking sites is the best way to bypass the filter.
The email is 100% legit, this user wants to share this photo with me but the content has extra information about the scam. God, what a trick!
