Who falls for this crap?

I am getting a hell of a lot of Nigerian spam lately. What's up with that? I used to get maybe a few a week, now I am getting several a day. How do I get on these lists? Is enough people falling for this stuff where the scam is profitable? "I AM MR HASIR MANITUBO AND I REPRESENT THE BANK OF UNGABUNGA WHERE FOUR JILLION DOLLARS HAS LAID UNCLAIMED DUE TO THE DEATH OF OUSTED GENERAL BOOGIWOOGI..."

Ugh, I hate spam. Both the fake meat and the unsolicited e-mail kind. It's ruining the Internet for me.

Yes, I have seen the one where the guy claimed he was Captain Kirk, and the other where the guy sold him a "P-P-Powerbook."
