Dear Sir or Madam, Thank you very much for your very interesting email, however I am afraid that I will be unable to help you at this time. These next three months are by far the busiest and most profitable period for my company and I cannot give any time to anything other than finding new artwork for our galleries, especially wooden carvings.

You may already know of me since it was you that contacted me. My name is xxxxx, and I am the director of xxxxxxxx division. We are dealers in fine art and ethnic art from all over the world. We run eight art galleries and two scholarship centres here in the UK. We also offer scholarship donations to aid up and coming new artists who may otherwise not have the financial means to be able to produce or improve upon their work. Our scholarship payments range from between $5,000 and $25,000 depending on the potential of the artist.

I am sorry but I am unable to enter into your business proposition at this time, however if you have any contacts in your part of the world who may be artists that you think may benefit from our financial help then I would be very interested to be put in touch with them. We are especially very keen on promoting new artists with experience in wood carving and will be happy to offer a very generous $5,000 to $25,000 scholarship package to young or old artists with good potential who may benefit from our help.

If you know of an artist who could benefit from our financial help and who would be prepared to produce work for us to sell or promote then please do let me know.

Again I am sorry that I am unable to help with your proposition at this time but I wish you luck in finding somebody to help you.

Sincerely,
xxxxx

xxxxx, xxxxxxxxxx,xxxxxxxxxxxx

i edited out the personal details just in case it is real.

It is a baiter. Not a scammer.

Sounds to me like you've got yourself a baiter ASEM in your catcher account. Wink

I bet the baiter responsible for that mail will respond in here or by PM shortly and remove you from his/her address list.

I'm sure I've seen this one before. I think it is from one of Shiver's baits.

Respond with 419 in the Subject line, but do it in Roman Numerals (CDXIX). Most baiters will take that as acknowledgment that you are a fellow baiter and remove you from their e-mail list.

Also since you are not baiting (and I am glad you respect your parent's wishes in that matter) have you thought about fake bank killing? It is a way you can contribute to this fight, and the best thing is that all you have to do is tell the truth to the ISP, so your parents should not get upset with that (but check with them first). There is a forum here dedicated to that.

/sorry for the thread jack.

Hi Sarah

I applaud you for deferring to your parents wishes. After all, only they have your welfare and safety at heart.

There are other ways that you can contribute to this malarkey without actively baiting. For example, you could post scam letters you receive in the 'Surplus' forum here for others to have a go at. You could also seed some guestbooks to grab even more lads. I have set up a catcher email account....

[email protected]

so that Eater members can take their pick of fresh lads. All you need to do is sprinkle it around a few guestbooks. If you do, always make sure you leave a nice comment.

I replied to the mail in my first post with the 419 thing but he said i dont know what that means. so i asked if he was a scambaiter. he said:

I'm not sure this means. What is a '419er' and what is scambaiting?

It may be a lad that stole the script that a baiter was using on him.

A 419'er is a someone who runs "419" or advance fee frauds. Scambaiting is where people (baiters) write to the scammers (lads) and pretend to believe the scammer. They (we) waste the time and resources of scammers.

Welcome to the board. Smile

It could still be a baiter. He might think you are a lad trying to flush him out.

Baiters get paranoid too sometimes. Wink

Unfortunately Gmail strips out originating IP addresses, so we cannot tell where this guy is from.

EDIT: The email address does not give me anything either on Google or other searches.
