What is the craziest business related thing you ever did?
I think mine was when I led a really moronic Nigerian 419 advance fee scammer on by telling him I was a registered, fourth generation, dealer of kryptonite and phlogiston from the Republic of San Marino. The surname I signed off with was nothing but a garden variety Italian obscenity (dal Ca**o), but I explained that it was a testimony to my being a descendant of a nobleman with extensive kryptonite plantations and an exclusive hereditary EU charter to deal in phlogiston in San Marino and Tuscany.
I kept claiming that under EU law the scammer had to send me $5 via Western Union in order for me to transfer the eleventy thousend dollers or whatever he wanted.
He fell for me hook line and sinker (including the phony name and the equally vulgar Italian address I gave him in San Marino) but he clearly did not have the $5 to send to me! I had to cut it short because I just did it to keep myself busy during a legal holiday weekend and I had to get back to real business after a day or so, but he kept asking me when I was going to come to Africa to meet him for days if not weeks after I stopped my correspondence!
