In the early part of 2006 I had an ebay store and was at home recovering from a major auto accident that ripped my face off and crushed my leg. I had a woman purchase some of my listings named mariam scott. She over paid and not knowing at the time my wife and I returned to her the balance of the funds. She said that it was a mistake and that it wouldn't happen again. She ordered multiple different items from me again so I didn't give it allot of thought. We deposited the check, shipped the items and a month later our bank notified us that the deposits were held. It took our bank an entire month. We were out $2500. When I confronted the [Woman] she claimed that it was an error and would take care of it immediately so she sent us checks from someone else totaling $3000. We did some checking and the checks were fake. Here my wife and I were in financial ruin and this scumbag and sending us fake checks. It took us 1 year to get out of the hole. Our business went under, Our bank accounts were closed and we cannot open another account due to suspicion of fraud. We have spoken with the banks and they won't do anything about it. Now that I look back I think to myself: boy were we idiots. But then I see that others get duped far worse than we did.

Now that I feel better and I continue receiving emails from from these low life's I feel that it is necessary to help keep others from suffering the same fate. Plus it's a hoot to see them get so angry. I'm not really doing it for the revenge but more for the fun of messing with their heads. Knowing that every email I send they are spending time on me dealing with it instead of someone else who is a real victim.

I am in the middle of my first baiting and I don't think I've laughed so hard in months. My wife thinks I'm spending too much time on it but boy what a blast.

And I do it for the role-playing thing. Plus I feel really bad for victims and want to help out somehow.

Cheers John. Best of luck in your continued recovery (financial and health-wise). The lads are a good source of amusement once you know what you're dealing with. And if you feel like screaming at someone, well you have a line of them beating a path to your inbox.

Hi johnnu.

I guess we won't have to worry about any ethics threads from you? Wink

I'm sorry your introduction to baiting was so expensive and unpleasant, but I'm glad you're here all the same.

Don't bait angry, bait mean. Twisted Evil

Welcome. Sorry to hear about the loss of money to one of these idiots. The fake check scams are, in my opinion, by far the most convincing. They don't require the victim to be greedy. So, you are one of many. Don't beat up on yourself.

Great to have you along. Best of luck with baiting. It is definitely a fun hobby.

Welcome to eater.
The only advice I have is to make sure you're baiting to stop others suffering as you have. If you're baiting for revenge you're more likely to slip up and lose the lad, or worse, give away personal information. Plus you won't have nearly as much fun Twisted Evil

Welcome Johnnu! Read the stickies, then, as I like to say, hit em' with all guns blazing and go invisible. No real info givin to them. Waste their time, and drive them crazy. Bottom feeders, all of them.

Welcome johnnu!

Baiting can be real therapeutic. It sounds like you are getting better. Baiting with an emotional attachment does take a lot out of you. Setting aside the personal damage and acting more like a surgeon is the best way to bait.

Take care and read the stickies, find your niche and enjoy your new found hobby. Don't be surprised if your wife gets jealous... Shocked

Welcome johnnu. My wife did not like me baiting at all until I let her make up her own characters. I am usually a medical doctor and she has been a racing driver, horse trainer, police officer and a test pilot. She also gets to make up personalities for the children. I always go deeply into my family situation. Gives me plenty of irrelevant stuff to talk about and it will keep your lad busy too. They are always very polite and feel the need to advice me on family problems.
Stay safe.

Welcome to the Eater johnnu! AFAIK you're the first who came here out of previous experience with victimhood. I'm always interested in the reasons why people do this.
