The headline started an interesting train of thought about the more traditional Nigerian-style email scammers.

Do these scammers have rock-solid malware protection? I've seen sites devoted to stories of stringing these guys along, and sometimes even getting money out of them. It would be so much better to disable the systems they work on by replying to them with infected attachments.
