I got one of the British Lottery scam letters. Replied to it, and got The Form. I sent back the form, unfilled out (see, I filled it out before I hit reply...silly me, teehee) and in response to their request for a driver's license or passport, I replied that I have neither, would a High School ID be all right. Stupid move on my part? Or clever?

I think only sending real info would be a stupid move. Lottery scams are easy to come by It'll be interesting to see how he replies to a 'highschooler'

I vote clever! Clever I say! Surprised

Sometimes the lads aren't particularly keen on talking to people who seem to be young, largely because they don't think they'll have any money. As long as you let him know you've got cash he'll stay interested.

And remember, no information that could link him to you.

^ ^ ^ I tried something similar before awhile back but the lad lost interest straight away, maybe because he figured that I had no money, that I was baiting, or that I was just some kid who was messing around with him.

Make up excuses for not being able to send the info right away-- try and get him off script.

But now that you mentioned already that you were in high school, maybe you might try indicating that your parents are rich or something to that effect.

Since lotto lads are pretty much a dime a dozen--I get literally dozens on a daily basis, too much to keep track of-- if you lose this one, you can always move onto the next.

I've got a lotto lad at the moment who I'm up to about 80 emails of conversation with. It's difficult to keep them away from the Western Union transaction, but even once you're there you have so many options to waste his time with.

My lad has totally given up on the idea of me transfering him any money now, and instead has asked me to send him laptops and cellphones as payment for opening the supposed bank account I need.

Cue courier modalities.

Very true. I'm working a double shift at The Hotdog Emporium to earn sufficient money to collect my winnings. We're exchanging daily emails as I keep him updated on my progress.

Another alternative of earning money (mentioned here somewhere) is to sell used underwear on Ebay to wealthy Jappanese businessmen, but your character would have to be female for this to work .... but I guess not necessarily.

Well, I heard back from my lad, who told me to refill out the form. But, oops, silly me, I deleted it from my inbox. Now he'll have to resend it. Apparently this one's still on the hook. Wish me luck, guys.

^^^ If you do go down the kid route, you can always salvage it (if he's not keen on the idea) by introducing your parents to the bait. They usually have stacks of cash and don't know what to invest in Wink Laughing .

I play the kid modality regulary. Nice opportunities. Kids has no passports, so they cannot send it. I cannot send anything with WU because they keep asking for a passport, so I need a Bank account to send him the money.
My phone number does not work, because my mother has not paid the phone bill. Kids allways ask a lot of questions ...

<br>There is nothing to stop you playing a rich middle aged businessman and still send him the high school ID, just make sure it is in a suitable form (blurred/unreadable) to ensure that it cannot be reused by the lad.

I once sent Mr Soludo my Cycling Proficiency certificate from school - see my siggy. Laughing It didn't prevent the bait moving forward.

I couldn't be bothered to fake an idea. They accepted a bus pass from me ... Which I never actually managed to send, fortunately they accepted it anyhow.

JackDtenn^

I have seen lottery baits wherein the lads are kept on the hook for several months....

And a tip of my hat indeed to those who can do that, because when I don't delete and do reply back I know it's doomed in short time. The lads have a lottery of 6 or 7 winning #s out of 100. The odds on that are more than there are people on the planet. So for them to tell me that there also are OTHER winners w/ the same #s too-- it gets me antagonistic.

But I do like to tell them how unlucky all those #s have been in my life [e.g #37--my wife died at that age, #82--nephew stole $82,000 from me--and so on] and that I would never have played them in a net-lottery.
