Nigerian scam emails - revenge

Postby Baron Greenback » Thu, 23 Feb 2006 4:40 pm

I am sure you have had them, the emails promising you millions of dollars if you could only help get the money out by sending a few hundred first, type thing.

You probably just delete them (like I do), but these chaps respond & delight in getting the scammers to pose in ridiculous photographs (like holding a fish on their head) before any money can be given.

If you have some time to kill read the correspondences, if not just have a quick peak at the photos:

I knew about this scam before I started getting the famous emails. After I did not pay attention to ten of them, I thought of some other options in the next one. I replied back I think with my phone number and actually forgot about it. On one fine sunday morning I surprised myself with a surprise phone call from the scammers. It was a rough African voice. I was in confused state initially becuase I had not expected it. Well the conversation ended in the middle shortly after I falsely said I work for INTERPOL :cool: . But it was quite fun. So if you want to have a nice time prepare with a nice story other than interpol one and have fun. Although even now when there is a lot of awareness about this scam still some people are caught in the web.

There was an email of this sort that I received. I decided to bait the dude.
During our few exchanges, I told him to head down to a local bar in the capital city and take a photo of himself there with a 'mate' of mine, who would be working behind the bar.

He came, took the photo and before you could say 'kunta-kinte', he ran like a roach.

That 'mate' of mine....

..was me, I was in Lagos on work assignment at that time.
