This cracked me up, and it's why I love gmail.
I received the standard introductory letter from a lad
Quote:
Dear Sir,

thank-you for getting back to me regarding our purchase of machine
tools from your company. I am writing to confirm that we require the
following equipment, to be delivered to our works by Jan 1st 2008 :-

1x Archdale swivel-head vertical miller (Vader Imperial threads on couplings)
1x Mitchell & Webb ARX bottom grinder
2x Harrison M250 centre lathes - without enlargement pumps
2x KT-Price GT2000 flange lubricators
1x Union BFT63 horizontal borer - including Shatner's bassoon controller
2x Ant & Dec shaft polishers with grease-nipple attachments

Full payment will be on delivery but, as we discussed, we can send you
a preliminary down-payment of £5,000 immediately. Please let me know
how you want to receive this (bank draft / UK CHAPS transfer / Western
Union or MoneyGram wire transfer).


Yours sincerely,

Gustav Fenk

Now, unfortunatly the lad sent it to a few hundred people at once.. and someone responded to ALL the potential victims with this:
Quote:
My dear 419 scammer. You are a very silly fraudster. You have allowed
me to see the whole list of emails you've sent this silly attempt to
scam us.

As you already know collecting and distributing valid emails is an
illegal activity WHICH I have already reported.

I am also sending a copy of this mail to the whole lot of them so they
know that:

THIS MAIL IS A VERY PATHETIC WAY OF TRYING TO RIP PEOPLE OFF THEIR
HARD EARNED MONEY.

THIS MISTER GUSTAV FENK IS A FRAUDSTER A SCAMMER A THIEF!!!!!!!!!


With it being gmail, the emails show up in the same "conversation".. just pans out so nicely.

*edit*
I got a reply from the lady/gentleman who sent out the warning, turns out to be a fellow scambaiter Very Happy

I think the original email was from another baiter.

I've seen the name G F before.

I already highlighted these phrases in another thread just an hour ago.

Seems a few members are getting ASEMs from another baiter!

Ummm, yeah, if you read the list of "Equipment" you'll clearly see that it's a lark, e.g. "Shatner's bassoon controller."

But if anyone has such a bassoon controller, please let me know!

We're already discussing that here, so Iíll lock this one to prevent duplicates. Please continue in the other thread.
