My daughter answered the phone and was having trouble understanding it but it appeared the caller wanted to speak to my wife. So, she got it and was having the same trouble, so she hung up. I asked her who it was, and she said it was hard to understand, but some guy said she won $2.5 million. My eyes lit up....I asked if it was like a sweepstakes, and she said "no" it was some foreign person saying she won the money due to some death or something.

Well, 2 minutes later, the phone rang again and I got it. Asked for my wife (who has a different last name than I -- modern women, you know). Anyway, I said she wasn't here -- there were the tell-tale pauses of an international call, anyway I asked him who he was..."Mr. Fred" it sounded like. I asked him what he wanted. He said Mrs. XXXXXXXX has won $2.5 million and could he please speak to her again. "Oh really," I replied. "And how does she claim these funds?" "Oh," he said, "you must call another number for a lawyer who will tell you the details." Mugu city.

I asked how much the courier fees were -- major pause here. So I asked again and he said he didn't know. I said but the lawyer would want me to pay for the courier company so the check could be sent to me right? "Oh yes, but you must call the lawyer." I asked then if I also had to get a anti-terrorism certificate, or perhaps a diplomat would be arranged for the delivery -- another major pause.

I then decided to cut it off b/c I didn't want this small boi asking me to be his oga. I told him I knew the scam and he wasn't to call back again. I figured no need to get all hysterical on him -- I obviously showed more than enough knowledge that he'd have to conclude I was wise to his little game.

Anyway, I was very paranoid for a few moments, wondering if I had somehow let my identity slip through somehow in a bait, but given that my wife has a different last name, and there was no way for that to get out, I just considered myself lucky to have been the recipient of a call. I can tell you the last thing the mugu expects is those such questions -- they figure on either hang ups or interest, perhaps cursing, but not a diagram of how the scam works. Wink

Very fun call -- again, I really would have liked to play with him but it is my home number. Good times.

While it's sad that he called your number directly... I just want to say that I laughed out loud when I saw those questions that he was not expecting. I have yet to receive a scammer calling my number, but I'm sure in the future that I'll meet a scam artist. Great job on handling the situation and very good job on not baiting him when he has your wifes name, etc.

scary thought if the lads are going to start calling people and scamming them instead of using internet... getting a VOIP?

I get a lot of lads calling me direct from Ghana. I can only assume that my baiting phone number is on display in a cafe in Accra!

the task is to see how long i can make the call. The lads can't use VOIP to call me either!! Very Happy

If the lad is really unfortunate he gets to speak to my SO who is brilliant at winding lads up by being very polite ( rather like a doctors receptionist)

Yeah, it was fun, but I'd rather not egg these fellows on and have them speaking to my daughters, etc. My wife knows I pay attention to these scams so she just laughed when I told her the details of how the lads like to operate.

^^^^ JM, I think you missed a chance here. Maybe this way a love scammer and you would have gotten a rather cheap divorce this way? Man, you have to take the opportunities that life offers you!! Wink Laughing Laughing

nope...sorry...forgot....you already told us once, that you are both lawyers....no way for anything cheap there Wink Laughing

my wife knows about my little sport, too. And she dislikes it a lot. A lad calling our home phone would scare her a lot and probably start a dispute about my baiting career ... Shocked

Reminds me of the time a scammer phoned me up while I was eating xmas dinner with the family. The scammer ended up speaking to my dad for a good 5 mins. He had no idea who it was, all he knew was not to give him any details under any circumstances. Laughing

I love it when lads call me when I am with friends who know about my pastime. When my friends want to talk to the lads it is allways very funny Very Happy

Funny and a bit discomforting at the same time. I always worry that maybe I've let my details slip and it will catch up to me some day. (That's why I thought better of putting a 419Eater sticker on my car). Maybe this is the start of a new cold-calling modality since the scam is always evolving. It still amazes me just how much these gobshites love chatting on the phone.
