Only if the person sending out the fraud is a comcast customer (doubtful)... The answer here is to delete them, collect them as curiosities, or as some of the folks over at Spam, Scam and Phishbusters  do, play with them. (I don't reccomend the last unless you really know what you are doing..
TANSTAAFL!!

The Secret Service used to have a task force to deal with 419 scams, but it was dissolved when they were merged into Homeland Security.

Try googling "reporting 419 scams" and you'll find some resources, although some of them seem out of date, and others could be people trying to sell you unneeded software to protect you.
