OMG - The Scammers are Now Using Obama's Name!

And now, just when you think it could not get any more ridiculous - the Nigerians are sending emails on behalf of Obama's Foundation (even though they are so stupid they did not realize The Obama Foundation just sounds better and more official..but whatever) to 'help' those who have been scammed by scammers. Hmmm, they must be running out of ideas.
