419 scammers using Yahoo Messenger

Has anyone else had 419 scammers try to chat them up using Yahoo (or any other) Messenger? Just now I had some idiot pretending to be one “Dr Lawson Koffi”, whose supposed position of influence I didn’t bother to check, not that it matters because I wasn’t talking to Dr Koffi anyway but to an impersonator sitting in a Lagos cyber café. Anyway I allowed his messages, but then checked my email and found out why someone I did not know had added me to his buddy list. Of course, I know these people can be devious - they often appeal to you as a “brother in Islam” or “brother in Christ” - but it’s the first time someone has tried to bother me on the IM system.
