Nigerian Scam Emails


#1

This is the third one I have gotten. All I want to do is sell my camera. Fuck!

Anyone have any ideas on how to fuck with this person a little. I don't want to do anything drastic because they do have my personal info (only my name and real email).

This particular one has a history.

I wanted to sell my xbox360 and a nigerian ‘‘pastor’’ emailed me wanting to buy it for his kid. What they do is they send a fake paypal page saying that the payment is processed but the only thing you need to do is send the product and scan the proof.

What I did is I sent an email saying that I was gonna make him a gift and send the xbox for free because it was for his kid. I said he didn’t need to pay me.

I get these daily filling up my Email. I wish I could get off their lists. There is obviously a website
or two distributing Email addresses.

You will be shipping to West Africa Nigeria so just get back to me with your paypal money request so that i can make your payment.Thank you[/quote]

Played it out a little bit and would you have guessed it? Yup, Nigeria.

It’s great that the only interaction the western world has with Africans reveals that they are just a bunch of internet scammers.

I love fucking with the Nigerian mail scammers. The folks over at 419eater have literally turned it into an ART, but I do modestly well myself. I consider wasting their time a community service, as their scams actually work sometimes on the old and ignorant.

A good technique is to say that you’re in Nigeria and that you want to give them their “processing fee” in person. Find out where they are, search out some obscure corner of Lagos and say you’ll meet them there. Then email them and accuse them of standing you up. Its pretty funny. I had one guy make three stops in a day. I pictured some crooked Nigerian scumbag crammed onto a local bus, dreaming of the money he was about to receive, as I sat and enjoyed a cold beer.

Here, this is a better representation of what the good people at 419eater do. This is where they ask the scammers to pose in ridiculous photos.

I’ve won 850,000 (L) in the UK lottery. All I have to do is send them my personal info and a little bit of money. I’m the luckiest guy in the world, 'cause I win almost everyday.
