This mail came from Togo:

Good Day!

My name is Martt Mario, I am with the US Army and I am serving in the 1st Armoured Division in Iraq. Me and my partner discovered and moved funds belonging to Saddam Hussein.

The total is $25,000,000.00 (Twenty Five million US dollars) this money is being kept safe in the security company in Lomé-Togo. Click on this link to read about events that took place here.

http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/middle_east/2988455.stm

Basically since we are working for the American government we cannot keep these funds so we want to transfer the funds to you, so that you can keep it for us in your safe account until after our service.

We will divide the total fund this way, 80% for me and my partner while 15% will be for you and the other 5% will be set aside for any expenses that might be incurred.

This business is should be kept confidential due to the nature of our work and present status. If you are interested send me an e-mail signifying your interest including your private telephone/fax numbers for quick communication.

Anticipating your immediate response.

Sincerely

Martt Mario

The Iraq booty one pops up quite frequently.

You'll find he's as straighforward to bait as many other 419 stuff, only more fun if anything. You'll get some pretty freaky ID cards, and some really laughable forces stuff like made up military ranks. Obviously give him lots of praise on that front.

I did one once where the lad was a Staff Sergeant, a Lieutenant and a Captain all at once.

It reminded me of:

Quote:
Sergeant Frank Drebin, Detective Lieutenant, Police Squad!


Some people take this type of scam very personally indeed..... I see it as no worse or better than many other scams.

Go ahead and enjoy! It's amazing how many forces people there are serving in Togo. Laughing

Welcome to Eater, Exile! Very Happy

After a while, you'll realize that this email, and variations of it, are very common. If you look in the surplus letters forum, you'll see many more like it.
You might want to start out baiting straight for a while and learn a bit before you tackle a safari. . . just a thought. Wink If you keep the lad on the hook for a while, a safari isn't out of the question. Might be hard to get a supposed soldier stationed in Iraq to be able to head to an African country, though.

Have fun with the bait, post questions for veteran baiters in the help forum. Sign up for a mentor too!

Thanks for the advice.

I think that 15% is not enough for me, though... Do you reckon it will take too much to get a 40%?

^^ No need to work too hard on that, you don't want to spook him.

Go ahead and ask, he'll probably offer another 5% if you haggle.

This always makes me laugh. He'll haggle and argue over 5% of something that doesn't exist, to the point that he'll even drop you if you protest too much.
That's how stupid some scammers can be. Confused

I guess that's because, somehow, they end up believing, to a certain measure, their own stories. Or maybe they're being taught dramatics by some Stalivnasky (sp?) follower.

His IP address will tell you he's in Togo. He won't know the difference between a Captain and a Sergeant. His ID will look like something in a GI Joe set. He will claim to be both a US marine and a Navy Seal at the same time.

There are many pointers. His spelling of "Armour / Armor" is the least of these! Wink Laughing

I think some lads think that if you're gonna haggle about percentages you're gonna be hell as soon as they try to make you pay unexpected fees.
They rather have the people that don't haggle, not even on their cars. *I've heard there are people out their that pay showroom price*

Only 15%? What kind of niggardly offer is that? My lad offered me a full quarter of the proceedings. Razz

My Iraqi funds guy was a US Marine Captain (who offered me 14% of the $7.2 million) and the scam was based in Ghana. It ended up with the Lad and my baiter character's brother, an SAS Captain, swapping threats; it also gave me one of my sig lines.

@Chain Yanker

I'm really angry now. Probably the guy offered less cause he thought that me being a girl he could get away with it. I will teach him a lesson.
