Frikkin' gmail! I accidentally forwarded the wrong (ahem) Barrister reply to my distraught-euro-female-missionary-trapped-in-Africa lad.
Dear Mary,
As you requested, I am forwarding Mr. 's email to you. I'm not sure what he is asking me about brokering a debt to someone in Canada or the Deed of Assignment. Maybe you can explain for me?

Lad is either fearful of the chopping block, or (more likely) is just anxious that another scam might alert me that he's up to no good.
Oh my God, who is this man and how do you get in contact with him? I am very confused here, I directed you to the security company in South africa.Mr.xxxxx and nobody else.

Please, I don't know what this man is talking about, please disregard this mail and forward the mail I asked you to forward to me, that of the security comapny in south africa or have you not heard from them since today?

Please and in the name of God , don't write this person again. cancele his mail and make sure you do not disclose this matter to any body to avoid divert of this money. Really , i am confused and surprised on how this could be.

I don't know who this person is please. This money is all my life.

Let me hear from you soon.

Oh, the tangled webs yet to be woven! Twisted Evil

I did that, too, but answered an email with another name (I have more than one victim). Had to explain wbout my "proper" name. Tangled web, indeed...

He may have a trojan virus, he should do a scan or move to a newer box.

Mr kelvin Jordon that call you from our branch office in canada explain that the chicken background voice has been querried, claiming the voice was his telephone ringing tone, therefore accept my deepest appology for that.

I think we've all done this at least once. My method of dealing with it is the same as my method of baiting: Boolsheet through it. I'll say "but this guy contacted me and said he was working with you" and create some paranoia (an easy thing to do - lads are twitchy by nature), or insist that "no no, I'm sure you gave me that exact barrister. I have your e-mail right here" and then fake up (with fake headers) an e-mail instructing me to do it, which also creates paranoia.

If I screw up and the lad calls me on it, I often just use that as an example of how ineffective it is to deal with third parties - especially when confidentiality is so important to the "business" at hand. I then insist on dealing solely with them, and for some reason they always agree, and the bait moves on most of the time.

Either way, who cares? You got your lad off script and caused confusion, so mission accomplished. If your lad twigs, he twigs. Go get another one (they're not expensive) and try not to drink so much when you bait next time.
