Today I received spam from someone claiming "my residential address is as follows 320 First Street, NW Washington, District of Columbia 20534." Being me, I wondered if the address was even real. So I popped over to google and was darkly amused to discover 320 First Street NW is the mailing address for the Federal Bureau of Prisons.

It's one of those "I know you lost money in a Nigerian 419 scam and here's the person you need to work with to get your money back." I have no idea how much money it claimed to have found for me as I didn't read the whole thing.

Whoa! A "Nigerian scam" scam. That's very meta.
