419 Scam Letters

This is a collection of Letters relating to the ongoing 4-1-9 Scam. You'll probably get them in your email if you don't have proper SPAM or phisher protection. People writing these are really stupid and most reside in Lagos, Nigeria. Never trust anyone from Nigeria when it comes to doing business online.

First few calls

========================================================
This is a continuation of the previous stories
read the previous blog entries first before reading this
========================================================
========================================================
My First call was screwed up, with a calling card and her
international phone number I had to press like 37 digits
in the phone just to get into contact with Mariam Abacha
Then the stupid calling card ran out and it wasn't very
clear. I didn't calculate the timezone in Africa so I
actually called her at like 2:00AM.
========================================================
========================================================
I seemed to have lost the first call somewhere, besides
it wasn't really important.

========================================================
In the first e-mail she said her family members were
getting molested so I ask, "Are they getting molested?"
But she is stupid, but doesn't understand. I argue saying
its not 7am. But that was a miscalculation of the timezone
on my part. She is pissed. "I'm telling you this is 7,
not 9:11, its 7am in Nigeria!" "I'm telling you this is 7am,
verify your clock there, this is 7am in the morning.
not having e-mail working in American country at this
time of day so that she would talk over phone. Also I am
trying to speak with an accent, but not really working
perfectly. I also say I'm going to call in 2 hours but I
decide not to because I would have to wait til like 2am
and I was sleepy. Still 2 more calls to come, stay tuned.

Comments:
I love what you're doing here.

One suggestion though, get rid of the annoying Google ads. Those are almost as futile as the Nigerian money schemes.
 
Nothing is futile. The Google Ads monetize this blog significantly. If they disappear, this blog would not continue.

The Nigerian money schemes are not futile because out of the thousands of people they e-mail there is one unlucky person that falls for it and sends money back.
 
I too love what you're doing here.

And being a web developer, GoogleAds can be a significant source of income when used properly with the right content.
 
This is hilarious!
 
I commend you for fighting the fight and exposing these cybercriminals!

I join you in fighting back, too! My blog is about educating potential victims about the scams, schemes, frauds, and cons they pull or try to pull.

Beware phishing and pharming schemes!

Interesting... and what are your long term plans on this?
 
Nothing I just screw with them for fun I guess. Somepeople reverse the scam and ask them for processing fees ahead of time. Of course the money goes to charity.
 
I find this a novel approach to messing with people.

I always wiished I do what you did. I know it's a lot of fun to spam the spammers.
