This one strikes me as hilarious as it is so ridiculous. Interesting that he uses my character's name even though there is no hint of it in my e-mail addy (unless you are a real baseball historian, that is). Must be from someone I already baited or maybe he passed it along to a fellow mugu. Note especially the paragraph I highlighted in red! Laughing

Remember, this is not one of those Nigerian/African scams that "ripe you off your money." That's undoubetly why I have to send the money to Africa! And since when does Western Union UK have a Yahoo France e-mail?

This is going to call for some careful and deliberate de-education. Smile

I haven't received that one, but here are two other Western Unions that came my way.

Quote:
Dear Mr,.
I am writing you in related to your western union control number which was withheld by a "STOP ORDER" by Security forces due to acclaimed irregularities of origin of the money being transferred to you by your client/friend in the Union Togolaise de Banque branch of western union, of which I am the Controller /Manager.
I have offered to help you, if only you agree to my terms.
Firstly, I will not and never tolerate a third person hearing of this, it should be strictly between me and you, because I will not be led into losing my job and pride just trying to help you.
Since the Court order, obtained by the Security force men, stopping the sending of the money, I will assist you by helping you get two of the MTCN numbers, which we can do thus: On assisting you, for every 10,000 dollars as was sent to you, I get1,000 dollars from it, (i.e. for the 150,000 dollars, which is the number of "SEND MONEY FORMS" your partner sent, I will get the clerk to retrieve, I get 15,000 dollars). If you agree, then we can continue, if not do not even bother to reply.
I have arranged with the court clerk, where the "STOP-ORDER" suit was filed, so we have to appeal as has always been the case, then on sitting (since it will be an expedited sitting-the next day), then the court clerk who has the send money forms presented to the court as exhibits, will
help us in taking ALL OF IT from the "EVIDENCE ROOM", where it is being kept by the security men as "EVIDENCE" against your partner and the "WESTERN UNION MANAGEMENT" and replacing it with a " SUPPOSED FAKE" one (reduplication),so as I collect it from the court clerk, through the evidence room window, I will send them to you, for you to collect the money over there in your country and send me my share, and the forms to you and immediately the funds is released to you in your place.
All we have to do now is to file for an appeal, which will cost about 250 dollars, so we can collect the MTCN Send Money Forms used in sending the money to you. You will have to send the money for the Appeal case-(250 dollars)-DON'YT ASK ME TO PAY, BECAUSE I DON'T HAVE IT.I AM ONLY HELPING YOU.SO END IT TO THIS NAME PEACE DOGBEY AND CALL ME +233275128085
Send me your phone number, so immediately I get the MTCN numbers, I call you and give it to you, my office phone is connected to the INTERCOM, of MINISTRY of Finance, so I only call you, if I receive call with it the intercom operator will known that I am helping you with this claim.
For your information, do not ever send the money by western union or money gram to Togo, as it will be traced to me by Security forces, better off, you can send to Ghana; aflao-lome border branch of western union, so I can send someone across the border to receive it, not to be traced by the Security forces.
Thank you.
Dr
Controller/Manager Western Union Money Transfer, Union Togolaise De Banque (UTB), Lome-Togo


I didn't have any baits going at the time that involved Togo, so it's a mystery what that was about!

Then this one:

Quote:
Attention: ds:
The Western Union Money Transfer Africa has forwarded a report or rather has reported to our office that you are not willing to receive your compensation fund, More so you have been also told by one of the agent that failure to secure your International Remittance Certificate, your fund will be transfer to a charity home, is that true?
The Western Union agent complains that you said why the IMF have not contacted you directly, well you must be aware that it is not always quit easy for us to deal with client directly except when the matters are to hard for our agent to handle and that is why we are here to handle your matter.
I have to put this question to you, have you obtain your INTERNATIONAL REMITTANCE CERTIFICATE, if you have not I am sorry we cannot make this transfer to your account except your remittance certificate is obtain. I believe that the western union agent has discussed this matter with you.
For further enquiry and further discussion on this matter, call Mr. John Connor on this number +447045732004.
Thanks,
John Connor.
IMF CORDINATOR.
Hot line +447045732004.


That one I did bait, but not for very long!

Well, we're known to rinse and repeat... why wouldn't some of the lads? I can just picture some mugu, maybe having a slow month, sitting there thinking "Golly, my e-mails get a lot of responses, but for some reason I just can't close the deal. Maybe if I take another shot at the ones that looked promising but faded away... oh but I just couldn't use the same cover story. I better think up something more convincing this time."

No that's probably not how it happens. But it's nice to think that, isn't it?

I like to think that they either practice on themselves or think "Would I fall for that? Yes, if I was told this was not a scam and just to trust this man behind the e-mail, I just might send the money."
My other favorite is "Keep this confidential, for security sake." Boy does it get them riled up when you cc another lad in error!
