    Just to let you know, it this guy contacts you, I'm already doing business with him. No need to propose your help, the money is mine.

    I will keep you updated about my imminent wealth.

    That's so bad that it's almost certain to work on someone pretty much immediately.

    I have a theory that people who actually fall for this sort of stuff serve a really useful purpose. By becoming victims, they remove the need for scammers to become more plausible and so they ensure that this level of low quality nonsense continues, from which the skeptical majority of us are completely immune. Without the gullible folks, scammers would have to raise their game and we'd all become more vulnerable. So let's give collective thanks for the easily-ripped-off and the service they provide for the rest of us.

    Someone put out great commercials on TV showing people receiving these scam solicitations as phone calls. To a person, they all gave the phone strange looks and hung up. I thought it amusing that no one would even consider giving bank info over the phone to someone who called them, but have no problems giving it up via email for some reason.

    ROFL I want to give him access to my old savings account with 3 dollars in it, so I can laugh when he gets let down terribly.

    You should see some of the stuff that got sent to me over the course of the last 2 years from having an un-captcha-ed internet contact form. Everything from naked Japanese women, to Viagra offers, to love letters from my ex soviet lover.
  7. 10.5 monopoly dollars? Damn, wish I could have that kinda scratch :(

    And how could you insult a GOD fearing man like that !
  8. Hmm, he sounds like a stand up guy. Good luck with Mr Issac Caleb.

    If he doesn't work out for you I would like to recommend Kerikeri. He is Nigerian after all.

    Truth be told, I haven't actually received my "contract payment" yet. He assures me I will any day now. It's cumming straight from the President and Commander- in - Chief of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, so I believe it to be totally trust worthy.

  9. Is your name really Patrick Bateman? If so, you should kill this guy with a chainsaw.

    I'm waiting for him to catch on the double-reference of "Bateman", "Bait-man". But if his english is really of this level, I guess nothing of the kind will happen.
  11. Two- count 'em- two Biblical names. GOTTA be legit. :rollno:

    You're too late on Isaac Caleb. I have already given him my bank info, DOB, and SS#. I should have the money next week!:hyper:

    I call BS. He wants me to come over to Burkina Faso, not to give him money.

    Hey guys, be careful with these people. Yes, I know that none of us TB'ers are stupid enough to fall for the bs, but I know someone that had major trouble from the nigerian email.

    The crafty sods simply used the internet and her email address after she replied with a "sure, just send me the cash" joking email, found her name and address on a distribution list for her kid's little league team, figured out that it was in a rich neighborhood in DC (they do have deep pockets), tried to blackmail her family and went so far as to come to one of the kid's games. I won't bore you with the following details, but it ended up ok thanks to her father being retired FBI. You can find all kinds of crap online and it never goes away so we are all traceable to some extent.

    Just delete the emails, harmless to you or not.
    (not that I wouldn't want to string the jerks up by their naughty bits and leave em hanging)

    I think Patrick Bateman will not go further than this.

    EDIT: It seems the man shares this phone number with Dr. Eduardo Luciano Duque, Vice-President of STAKES LOTTERY PROMO :p

    I'm taking a trip this weekend, because I heard about that other guy, who supposedly knows. I don't have his exact address. You guys know which door I should knock at?
