Incandescent with anger - aptly put. I often email back "NO" in big letters, and I cc some fake name at FBI.gov. For whatever honking off it does them.

You have to read what this guy did when approached by a scammer while he tried to sell a laptop on eBay. Amazing. http://www.zug.com/pranks/powerbook/

Someone out there is getting back at them. :)
