This guy says he'll kill and eat his rabbit unless he gets $50,000 before June 30. I don't think he really intends to kill and eat that rabbit, but I admire him for an amusing scam. And it appears to be working: as of this writing, he's made almost $20,000 as it is. I'm half tempted to send him money.
The hate mail this guy's getting is fantastic. I wonder if this would work with a cat?
