If based on statistics (from 2004), then I think we should block California, New York, Texas and Florida:

Those 4 together exceed all foreign countries for fraud origination.



To those suggesting a block of 41/8 to stop the Nigerian 419 problem or
any other percieved problem:

C'mon Africa != Nigeria.  It's an entire friggin' continent with 53 other
countries besides Nigeria.  How does that saying go?  "I encourage my
competitors to do this."  (Oh yeah, don't forget to block all Chinese IP
addresses while you're at it.  That's only one country... 8-)  Do you
REALLY think blocking 41/8 will stop those emails?
