This is the beginnings of what could be an interesting bait.

I only hope he's as stupid as he sounds...

Dear Arm1tage
Thanks for your email. I am very delighted.
I got your email address during my frantic search on
the internet. I have contacted only you presently and
I am very optimistic that my search for a trustworthy
person has ended. If you decide to assist me, you will
be working with me, I will employ the
services of a lawyer that will get all the necessary
legal documents that will present you as the
beneficiary of the funds. This process is a 100% legal
and you and your family are not in any danger
whatsoever.
We could have collected the money ourselves but the
present democratic govenment is putting me and my
family through hell. All our travel documents have
been ceased and presently my mother is under house arrest.
If I didnt need your help, I would not
have contacted you in the first place and if our
situations were reversed, I will gladly help you out
because I am also a helper.
I hope to hear from you soon with your contact
telephone number so that my i can call you
and fill you in with all the details.
Have a nice day

Hi Mustapha,

I am glad to hear from you so soon. You seem like a man in desperate need of my help, and you did email the right place. Myself and my brethren at my church are always willing to help those in need.

The fact that you point out that this pricess is 100% legal and that I will not be in any danger is very reassuring.

It is unfortunate that your mother in under houe arrest. how did this come to be?

I am glad you say you are also a helper because I and my church may be able to use your help. In what ways do you enjoy helping people?

I look forward to hearing from you.

Hello Amitage,

I have only one question for you, do you really want to help us out? if yes, I will like to have your telephone number so that I can call and discuss with you, if you have any question for me as soon as I call you, you can ask me any question, I wait for your reply.

Regards

Hi Mustaph4,

As you know, I am a man of strong religious views, and this includes helping people such as yourself. I would be glad at the opportunity to help you.

Unfortunately, the downside of my religion, is that we believe the telephone to be the work of the devil. So I have sworn never to use one.

I hope we can work around this problem.

Unfortunately, mustaph4, this is simply impossible.

Is there any other way in which i can help you?

Hi Mustaph4,

Thankyou for your prompt email.

As I do not use the phone, is it possible to do our negotiations via email?

All the best,

Arm1tage

Got your mail, can you call me?



Ahhh... circular conversations. I really do hope he gets stupider as the bait goes on.

This could be fun.

Ha ha, apparently this script requires a phone to continue to STEP 2.

I recently had a similar experience. I offered to forward the scam email to a friend with a phone. The offer was accepted and my bait came to an end!

Keep up the good work, I like the direction (I guess a circle is a form of direction) this one is going...

It is so incredibly frustrating to me when they asked for a phone number! Its like that is how they determine that we are for real or not. AH! I've had months of work go down the drain just because I don't have any way to use a phone without giving out any personal info...

You could always open a skype account.

That way no number comes up to id you when you make a call.

But personally, I don't want to spend a single piastre on these towrag mugus.

So if you want to talk on the phone, you could open a yac.com account.

It's free and you get a yac number which you can divert to any number you like. You can use it for faxes too.

Yes I notice that there always seems to be an urgency for the lad to get a phone number out of you. I am sure that it adds to their frustration to call a k7 number repeatedly never to find you at home.

All part of the bait. I think moderators should give extra points for baits completed without phone calls.
