The number of African immigrants (primarily from places like Somalia) on the West Coast has skyrocketed in the last couple of years. What is suspicious about talking on a cell phone while walking? People do it where I live all the time, much to my annoyance when they don't pay attention to where they're walking. And there are hundreds of legit reasons he might lower his voice...maybe he noticed you observing him?

Maybe your instincts kicked in for a reason. Maybe he's up to no good, but that doesn't necessarily mean he's a 419 scammer. On the other hand, maybe you've just become hypersensitive to certain phrases because of baiting.


Ohh, my God. You hit a nerve. I hate cell phone walkers. I don't own a cell/mobile phone, and I go out of my way to stay far away from the annoying cell phone walkers, not paying attention to where they are walking. Drives me crazy.

Like I said, all the details I mentioned added up to the "image." Sorry if I'm profiling, or whatever, but trust me, our instinct is our best judge druing unsure times.

Peace everyone, and I'll be here enjoying everyone's posts.

@dr stephen williams

No it wasn't. I confessed on my 5,150th post. Hence the 5,149 reference. Pay attention.

@RL

I apologise. I'm going to film it and put it on youtube like every other saddo that doesn't have a life...excluding any members on this site, of course. You'll recognise me. I'll be wearing my cap back to front. I've never known whether I'm coming or going. Laughing

Sounds like when I update my macs firmware. Very much like making love to a beautiful woman. Takes ages to warm up and then makes strange grinding sounds before shutting off completely.

LOL. Yeah, I understand those guys love to talk on their cell phones, and probably won't be long before they're sending spam on their I-Phones! Damn scammers!

I just had a scary thought: yesterday, I was talking on a cell phone, to someone in West Africa, about a money transfer.

Maybe I'm a scammer? Maybe I've been baiting myself!

Also, I seem to be lost. I thought I was on the main forum, but I seem to have somehow stumbled onto the PWT. ..

Dunno about PWT, I think Tommo and I are totally alongside the OP, sheer, unadulterated bilge.

I'll definitely give an update to this thread, if I get anything.


Ya know, this guy you saw, and others like him, could be 'possible-maybes', and even if they really are scammers, can you really do anything?

You probably wont get anywhere with any one of them.

Meanwhile, at this moment there are thousands more definite scammers sitting at computers and they dont have a friendly neighborhood baiter assigned to them.

Instead spending time on the possible-maybes like this guy you saw, others like him), those other online scammers need baiters like us to waste their time, money, energy, and emotion. You'll have a better chance of helping to prevent another person from becoming victimized.

Just a matter of proper allocation of resources toward the most probable beneficial outcome. Smile

eye-ken-doo:

Excellent points again. What I meant was that I'd give an update if it becomes a trend around where I live/work. I seriously doubt I'll just happen to run into that same guy again. Doubtful. No, my scambaiting is limited mostly to my internet hobby.

I'd like to try another one, though and see if I can get a safari trip to San Francisco. That would be rich! That's what I meant when I said I'd keep you posted. I guess this thread is dead.

Thanks everyone.

The guy in front of me at Tescos today had three things in his basket: bread, fish and milk. That was it. No cat food, no cornflakes, no toilet paper. Just bread, fish and milk. Ill let you draw your own conclusions.

Strewth... I'd better make sure none of our African employees discuss documents for fear of arrest.

Whilst I think that there is certainly a possibility that a scammer could exist in SF I really don't see how an African on the phone dicussing documents (from what i've read he mentioned it once?) in the middle of a major city's CBD (dicussing business in the business district? surely not!) can instantly equal scammer. First you think he's West African, then you concede he could be from anywhere in Africa... I dunno mate, but if I were a betting man, I'd be putting my money on false arrest.

Welcome aboard btw! Very Happy

Was he on a cellphone, or speaking with an accent? Cool

Looking at my bank records, it seem that I inadvertantly sent myself on safari to San Francisco impersonating a tall, African man. It must have been me you overheard.

Everyone can go back to work now.

I was talking about baiting to a fellow Doc of Wiggling who i work with. There was a nurse sat nearby, she is from Africa, and she suddenly went quite and started writing something. I immediately thought, "Oh my god, maybe she is related to the lads in Ghana! Maybe she is writing the details of my bait, to send them on to her relatives later." Baiting makes you paranoid, but come on!! Rolling Eyes Rolling Eyes Rolling Eyes
Edit...Lotta. Just wanted to make my point. Sorry. Welcome McW, Bait safe etc.

Thanks Lotta. No sweat. I've done it enough to my pets, I can take it a bit. Say, these boards have gotten a bit more feisty, since my last visit some 6 months back. Hopefully you got my PM.

Thanks again.

LOL. No problem. Thanks. Trust me, I waited a long time before posting, cuz I know it makes me look paranoid. But your advice is well taken. I still stick by my story, but I've been "schooled."

Thanks everyone!
