419 flashmob

Artists against 419 scams are promoting the idea of a flash mob that will bring down 419 scam websites.

You can use the tools provided and get updates on the sites taken down. It operates on a simple principle - the more people know about this and participate, the more likely the 419 scam sites will be overwhelmed and their monthly bandwidth limits exhausted. It's a kind of Slashdot effect.
