I am in the process of baiting a guy pulling a "company has pulled out of Nigeria but there is money that can be claimed if you pretend to be a member" scam. The plan to claim the fake money is VERY detailed, comprising of a number of steps. After about a month of messing him about I finally got started on step 1: Contact the Corporate Affairs comission (with a mail2world address) and tell them I need a copy of some certificate because I lost it in a fire.

I was expecting a reply telling me to pay them $x00 dollars but instead I get an e-mail telling me that I must find a way to contact Nigeria's federal court and get an affadavit to prove that the certificate I need was lost in a fire. Then they will e-mail it to me for free. I found this kind of strange: they were purposely delaying me paying them. Furthermore the IP and ISP of the computer that sent the e-mail is different from the guy I've been in contact with, thus it is a different person in a different location. Quite strange since it is such a minor role...

So I e-mailed my original contact asking him for advice. His reply was "I'll look into it. Let me get back to you" rather than "I was prepared for this, we need to bribe someone. Give me money."

It seems very odd that they are delaying my payment. I gather that the plan is to make this whole deal seem more believable by throwing in pitfalls that may happen in real life, but doing it to this extent seems unusual for a scammer.

Has anyone else seen a script that does things like this to them?

Erm, in short, no. All my lads have always gone for the jugular so to speak in as short a time as possible.
At the very most, some have dilly-dallied on some niceties before cutting to the chase.

Generally though, you know how it is. Point "A" (Greetings sir) to point "B" (MCTN) in as few steps as is believable.

It's nice to see someone putting some time into his craft through, and it makes things slightly more interesting for you. It'll keep you on your toes at least.

The good Sgt, that I have quoted in my sig and is now back for more pain Laughing, did something similar. He would write and talk about sending the trunk box. I would have to check my emails but it was almost a month in before the courier company asked for money. This is just a psychological thing to get you to trust them more. If they can talk to you and get you to think of them as a real person with real issues, then you are more likely to help. It is the same thing love scams do.

@UncleNed

you can assume that you have two differnt lads here. They might be new to cooperating and hence not doing it seamless enough. Perhaps the Corporate Affairs Comission guy has no way to collect the money securely and depends on his naija based partner.

Most probably though, it is just part of their scipt. If step 1 means for you to contact Corporate Affairs Comission and step 2 would be a bill, some of the more gifted vics might twig. This way the original lad and the comission can allways claim that they never demanded any money from you and that it was you who asked for help on the affidavit.

Sooner or later a bill will come your way, just bait along Very Happy
