Scammers have their own community, they have developped a small industry. it's like @krmills1 said...there will always be people that will fell for it...it's our job to protect ourselves.

FBI site tells you to:
To report potential e-scams, please go the Internet Crime Complaint Center and file a report. Note: the FBI does not send mass e-mails to private citizens about cyber scams, so if you received an e-mail that claims to be from the FBI Director or other top official, it is most likely a scam.

If you receive unsolicited e-mail offers or spam, you can forward the messages to the Federal Trade Commission at spam@uce.gov.
