In my e-mail box

[quoteb025672249]My Name is (SGT) JASON T. CAMPBELL; I am an AMERICAN SOLDIER, Serving in the military with the Armyís 4th battalion, 64th armored regiment. With a very desperate need for assistance, I have summed up courage to contact you.

I found your contact particulars in an address journal. I am seeking your kind assistance to move the sum of ($8 million U.S Dollars) Eight million united state dollars to you, As far as I can assured that my share will be safe in your care until I complete my service here.

SOURCE OF MONEY

Some money in various currencies were discovered in barrels at a farm house near one of saddamís old palaces in Tikrit-Iraq during a rescue operation, and it was agreed by my STAFF SGT KENNETH BUFF, SFC DANIEL V. ESS and I that some part of this money be shared among us before informing anybody about it, since we saw the money first. This was quite an illegal thing to do, but I tell you what? No compensation can make up for the risk we have taken with our lives in the hell hole. Of which my brother in-law was killed by a road side bomb last time.

The above figure was given to me as my share, and to conceal this kind of money became a problem for me, so with the help of British contact working here, and his office enjoy some immunity, I was able to get the package out to a safe location entirely out of trouble spot. He does not know the real content of the package, and believes that it belongs to a British/American medical doctor who died in a raid here in Iraq, and before giving up, trusted me to hand over the package to his family in united states. I have now find a very secured way of getting the package out of Iraq to your country for pick up, and I will discuss this with you when I am sure that you are willing to assist me, and I believe that my money will be well secured in your hands because you have the fear of God.

I want you to tell me how much you will take from this money for the assistance you will give me. One passionate appeal I will make to you is not to discuss this subject with any body, should you have any reason to reject this offer, please and please destroy this message as any leakage of this information will be too bad for us soldierís here in Iraq. I do not know how long we will remain here, and I have been shot, wounded and survived two suicide bomb attacks by the special grace of God, this and other reasons will mention later has prompted me to reach out for your help, I honestly want this matter to be resolved immediately, please contact ma as soon as possible with my private e-mail address which is my only way of communication.

God bless you and your family.

(SGT) JASON T. CAMPBELL.[/quoteb025672249]

People do it all the time, there is actually a website dedicated to it. One guy wanted laptops, he made the scammer pay for the shipping, the scammer had to rent a truck to go pick them up in a nearby city, and haul them back. When he opened them up it was just cinder blocks.

They also make them take absurd pictures, like tying a brick to their ball sack with a sign that says IMA DOOCHE. Pretty funny, gotta love those African Aids!

I personally see nothing worng with the email. I mean lets be honest they are scammers so their moral compass cant be too high. These guys are desperate to scam you for some money. I really dont think they care what kind of story they use. I, infact, commend them for becoming more creative in their attempts to scam. If you are going to be a scammer you might as well be the best and most creative.

"Nigerian scammers sink to an all-time low"

At first I thought this title meant that there were less and less Nigerian scammers nowadays. I guess not. (

I know its a scam because if you win money why would you have to pay them anything? Would you send them $300 or whatever it is hoping that maybe they're gonna stick 2 million in your bank account?

As for the info...I'm actually surprised you don't get these e-mails already because I started gettin em after I got into freebies and it seems a lot of other people get em as well so I figured they're gettin our e-mails from the offers we do or somethin...anyways, all of the messages are pretty similar to the one in the original post just with different people/scenarios so thats another reason I would never trust it.

GOOD DAY TO YOU,
GREETINGS IN THE NAME OF GOD,
My name is Mrs. Jennifer Woodward. I am a dying woman who has decided to
donate what I have to you/church. I am 59 years old and I was diagnosed
for cancer for about 2 years ago, immediately after the death of my
husband, who has left me everything he worked for. I have been touched by
God to donate from what I have inherited from my late
husband to you for the good work of God, rather than allow my relatives to
use my husband hard earned funds ungodly.

Please pray that the good Lord forgive me my sins. I have asked God to
forgive me and I believe He has because He is a merciful God. I will be
going in for an operation in less than a month and I decided to
WILL/donate the sum of £250,000 (Two Hundred and Fifty Thousand British
Pounds) to you for the good work of the Lord, and also to help the
motherless and less privilege and also for the assistance of the widows.

At the moment I cannot take any telephone calls due to the fact that my
relatives are around me and my health status. If you are a Godly person,
please contact my Account Officer and he will arrange the transfer of the
funds from my account to your preferred account. I wish you all the best
and may the good Lord bless you abundantly, and
PLEASE use the funds well and always extend the good work to others.

Hey if anyone's down for it, we should do a collaborative bait on somebody and see how far it goes. I'd personally like to freight bait them (that is, have everyone on FiPG send one person all the junk they can find and mail it to the lad, make him pay hundreds of dollars in freight charges in cash, then have him realize we shipped him bricks and broken electronics that can't be used! Then we do it again claiming one of us messed up the shipment!)

If anyone's interested, here's how I'm planning this

I'll start a new thread on Nigerian Scammers. It'll be a bait thread, so I'll be posting updates and you guys can just comment on it. We'll have like five to ten+ people in on this too. You guys will be my "employees" for something like "FiPG Phones and Laptops" (Lads love electronics by the way. And "lad" stands for what we call Nigerian scammers haha). We'll toss the guy around to a few of you to yell at him/bash him/whatever and then convince him that we're going to make him an international reseller of FiPG-brand phones and laptops.

What we do then is once we get his shipping info we FORCE him into paying for shipping on the spot. We get HIM to call DHL and send them to US, pick up the junk we gather in a big box or two, then ship it to him. From there on out, DHL will hold his goods until he brings them cash (they only do cash in Nigeria due to the huge amounts of fraud). The lad will then spend hundreds if not thousands of dollars, and realize that he just received some garbage.

He'll be mad. If we play our cards right and pretend to be sympathetic, we can freight him AGAIN claiming that one of the "employees" of FiPG Phones and Laptops "sabotaged" the package and that we're getting a different employee to ship it this time. Lad sends DHL to them, repeat.

And go on until he gets frustrated/pissed/hopefully too afraid to ever send another Nigerian scam letter to anyone again.

Anyone down?

anyway to get him to send us money so that we can profit from this?

[quote498a06d3ab="zr2152"]anyway to get him to send us money so that we can profit from this?[/quote498a06d3ab]

Not really. It's illegal to get money from the guy (and on top of that it's not in a lad's personality to send real money). The most we'd get is a fake Western Union money order or cheque. Actually, it could get to the point where he steals a person's checkbook and uses their funds to pay us. Also, note that he'd have one of our real addresses if this happens.

The goal is to come up with fake personas and fake addresses (preferably close to where we live) and have him send DHL to an alternate location to pick up crap from us at. The game is to not let them know our real identities and real locations so in the event that we screw him over pretty good and he happens to have goons living Stateside, he won't be able to find us in case. Fake names, fake addresses, fake "self-portraits", fake (Skype?) phone numbers, etc. have to be used =P

Not really worth it unless you CAN find an alternative location, even then it's unlikely that it will get far unless you know what you are doing.

The guy from Thescambaiter is able to pull this off. He tells the scammer to send DHL to one location and works in collaboration with DHL to come to his actual business storefront =P

Yeah, actually I read that big thread the other night. I thought it was pretty darn clever.

He told the guy he was baiting that an employee completely screwed up the order.
He also got the guy to take pictures of himself in ridiculous poses.

right but he has two things we don't

1) plans and knowhow
2) a business front

the business being one of the key features.

unknown uchiha

11-03-2008 16:54:01

He runs an actual business. His fake laptop front has a website that's open to all scambaiters to use freely. It's not too hard to bait a lad, I've strung one along for about three months before getting bored with him.
