I never noticed it until now, but this lad seems to have much better English than any others I've baited up until now. Take a look:

Quote:
I mentioned to you earlier that the officials vested with the authority to pay this money to you will be contacting you any moment from now as the bona-fide owner of the funds. Please let me know immediately you hear from them.

I also told you yesterday that I am working on the other documents. I have met with the officials who will issue the contract documents to us and they have agreed to help us out. However we will be required to pay some money to them to get these documents given to us. Therefore I would need your financial assistance to meet their demand. What we need is US$2,450.00. I am making arrangements to get US$1,500.00 so please I want you to send the remaining US$950.00 to me immediately. Kindly send it to me via Western Union Money Transfer as follows:

I only noticed one syntax mistake that most native speakers wouldn't make... does this mean he may be a BADger, or just much better at English than most scammers?

I think the latter of the two, as I've had a few like that. Keep going & see what occurs.

Probably just a good script. Can't tell if the lad has typed that himself or copied and pasted it. Only time will tell but it's not unheard of.
Try asking him some specific questions that will force a typed reply.

He or his scriptwriter has good English skills.

What's the IP on the email?

I vote for script. It sounds too perfectly worded. Try asking something odd to get him off script (weather, strike in Nigeria (if his IP is there), or some other odd question that needs answering).

As others have said, it sounds like script to me as well.

If you ask your lad a question that requires him to get typing, his skills may not be all that after all. And if it is............I had a few lads writing in flawless English. In my opinion, enjoy! I always like baiting the ones that reply in full sentences Laughing

Buhuaha! I only just now realised that the mods have fiddled with the word-filters again and k-i-t-t-i-e-s is now being automatically replaced by kitties Razz
It's like April Fool's day all over again...

Remember: kittys do not exist!

words that do not exist.

/EDIT: Nanu, nanu? It doesn't seem to recognise the plural of kittys. So one kitties doesn't exist, but many kitties do? How weird! Confused

Ah! I was wondering where all the fluffy kitty-cat posts were coming from.

Remember, there is no such thing as a badger!

<br>Sorry, but I hate cats almost as much as I hate trolls.

They shit all over my garden without so much as a thank you, kiss my arse. The cats I mean, not the trolls who are just in there for the magic mushrooms. Laughing

Very Happy Back on the the planet of topic....

Some lads do have relatively good english.

It depends where they come from.

Remember that some of these countries are former british colonies and probably have formal english grammar schools where they would learn english from a young age.

of course, most of these people are not scammers, but it is possible some of them are.

my understanding is that the scripts are written by well educated associates who do not correspond with victims themselves, they just write up templates.

I had a lad from the ivory coast whose (who's?) english was very impressive, completely off script and still very good.

I would say check the IP... you'll know if it's not a lad pretty damn quickly.

NAveryW,
Why on earth would the fact that a scammer writes in good English suggest that there is anything wrong? Confused
English is the first language of many scammers.
Even some that may speak English as a second language may have excellent writing skills.

Using your logic a huge number of scambaiters can't be genuine because their English skills are sadly lacking. Rolling Eyes

Just read a few threads here to prove the point. Smile
