They are already branching out to use Google apps for !New! scams. Now sending out business appointments via Google Calendar to discuss claiming your 'inheritance'.

What's sad is that once you've been tagged as a "victim" you are likely to be victimized again. Apparently there are reports of con men in the off-line world that share or sell the names of those that they have successfully conned. The logic being that if they were gullible once...
A very common con for those once burnt is to be contacted by another con man that claims to be able to recoup their money, for a fee of course.

Wow - you've really got to admire them for their creativity in the types of scams they have. It's always a not-so-pleasant surprise to see the new schemes that are coming out of Nigeria. When I worked for my father's golf company, we used to get an email at least every couple of weeks requesting 20 sets of Callaway Fusion Irons and 20 FT-5 drivers for Nigerian school children who can't access quality golf equipment. Those emails always cracked me up!
