As I work in a computer shop we get a lot of the following.

Dear Sir/Madam,

Please quote us prices for the different computer parts, notebooks and lcd monitors you have in stock.

Your quick reply will be highly appreciated.

Yours faithfully,

These guys normally are a bit more specific with their needs (HP inks and laptops). After all cartridge ink is more expensive than champagne. I would have thought this is ideal safari material as it can be delivered and fire damaged in the airport of your choice, where of course the cash payment on the insurance could only be paid out.

Edited headers on request.

I think it is a fake cheque scam.

Close but no cigar, normally it is a payment by credit card, where the mugu has skimmed some poor tourists card while on visit, NB never let your card out of your sight.

In the early days of e-commerce we got loads of inquiries from Indonesia where card skimming is rife, so much so that we had to adjust our site to refuse all but European destinations, and then we got a large order from Sophia for the very first MP3 CD players, and although the card was "genuine" they cancelled the payment once they thought the goods were there. Good job we were insured.

As we are french speaking here we get a lot of hits from the ivory coast, and I really don't get the time to follow them up as I have to deal with "real" clients and you can image the b*llix if I ever got the two mixed up, but I am quite prepared, gentlemen and ladies, to throw these buggers to the wolves, i.e your good selves.

No it wasn't my idea, I must admit I paraphrased, but it came to mind that this "targeted" scam on e-commerce outlets seems tailor made for this kind of bait.

Typically (remember we are not much more than a computer corner shop with a website) I get orders for 300 or so HP ink cartridges, and laptops that are already out of date (and therefore unobtainable from the wholesalers), but are obviously the latest thing in Africa e.g. P4 laptops which have been discontinued here in favour of PMobiles as the P4's overheat.

Anyway you get the general idea, I will be quite happy to forward anything I get to future "Computer Wholesalers".

enjoy

OT:

mami - Can I just take the time to say how brave you are in showing us all through your lovely avatar, that beauty is deeper than what we see on the surface (much much deeper in this case).

Edit - this post was edited enourmously to lie withing grounds of political correctness.

I'm sure ScamPatroller would love another wack at donating some computers. Smile Only to have it burned up and an insurance payout ...

Hi boingboing--

They always ask to provide laptops/labtops and a few expensive watches as 'gifts of appreciation'. Sometimes female clothing too..It almost amounts to a bribe! Horrors!

It just so happens The Church of the Holy Excrement has a cache of computers lying around waiting to be donated. But they'd have to pick them up at the airport in ummm.. how 'bout Abidjan, Ivory Coast holding signage. Smile
