Guidelines for posting in Surplus 419 Scam Letters forum

**********************************

Subject Layout

To make it easy for everyone to find the type of scam they are looking for, please use this format for the Subject:

Quote:
Type of Scam - Sender's Reply To Address


Examples might be:

Quote:
NOK- [email protected]
Loan - [email protected]
Gold - [email protected]


If the scam mail is particularly interesting/amusing, then a description of its noteworthiness could be added. Please use this sparingly:

Quote:
Pet - Selling Unicorns - [email protected]


If the 'type of scam' is not immediately obvious (lotto, loan, employment, pet scam, etc), these questions might help determine the best description:

1. Who currently has the promised money?

A dying widow? A soldier in Iraq? A refugee? A banker who has found some unclaimed funds?

2. Why is the money being offered to you?

Compensation for being scammed? Overdue contract payments? Somebody needs help?

3. Is there anything you need to do in return?

Stand in as next-of-kin? Invest the money?

4. Is the writer offering friendship/a relationship and the IP address shows the mail was sent from either Côte d'Ivoire or Senegal?

If so, then this is probably a refugee.

5. Typical Types of Scams:
Examples of typical categories include, but are not necessarily limited to:

  • Lottery
  • Next of Kin
  • Dying Widow
  • Unclaimed Funds
  • Romance
  • Credit Card Overpayment
  • Check Mule
  • Check Overpayment
  • Refugee
  • Pet
  • Recovery
  • Fake Charity
  • Adoption
  • Gold Lad
  • Loan
  • Employment


**********************************

Sender's Reply To Address

Often, in order to email large numbers of scripts and prevent having their own accounts flagged, lads will use a re-mailer, SMPT server, throwaway account, or phished email address. It is important to post the Reply To address, if there is one. Where a Reply To address is present, please do not include the original sender's email address as it will, likely, be an innocent third party.

**********************************

Headers

Once upon a time, in the "good ol' days, you could track the originating location of an email via IP address. Most free email providers are now masking the IP and setting their servers as the point of origin. We no longer require the full header, but may make the occasional request for it.

Visit here to learn how to access headers from some of the most popular email providers.

You can attempt to trace IP location here.

**********************************

The Script

Before the script, include the subject line. Then, include the entire script from the email.
