The Incredible Shrinking Artwork

bert Being a huge fan of Derek Trotter (DelBoy) and his dodgy dealings in Only Fools and Horses - which I consider to Britain's best ever sitcom - I just couldn't help but laugh until I cried at this story, in which the 419Eater website chronicles the incredible story of a guy (using the pseudonym of Derek Trotter) who baits "Nigerian Letter" scammers and actually convinces a 419 scammer to produce a detailed replica of a Commodore 64 computer with the lure of a big cash payout. No Commodore 64 computer was harmed during this scambait. We're not so sure, about the fate of an African hamster called Bert!
