419ers Scambaited Into Recreating Monty Pyton "Dead Parrot" Sketch

These Nigerian 419 scammers sent around an email begging for money because they were dying of cancer and got tricked into recreating the Monty Python “Dead Parrot” sketch. The “victim” on the other side was actually a scambaiter, a person who gets their rocks off by wasting email scammer’s time and making them perform ridiculous and humiliating acts.

What’s interesting is that the “dead parrot” they use is actually a metal duck. Once a scammer, always. — BEN POPKEN
