Our friend Charly, a music teacher in Arizona, had a spectacular run-in with a Nigerian Advance Fee Fraud Scammer. This exchange is hilarious and will delight Star Wars fans. I don't know if this scammer really understood what was going on...but thankfully we do.

3.FULL NAME AND ADDRESS....
4.YOUR PHONE NUMBER..."
don't hesitate to e-mail with your total charges.regardadams

Hello Adams,

I am happy to provide this service for your son Larry. However, before we proceed you need to understand that I do not accept any payments from or to Nigeria.

Let me know if this is a problem.

Best regards,

Charles

hello gorgan,
Thanks for your mail....well i want to know the price of the lesson.....
----------------------------------------------------------------
My name is Grogan, not gorgan. Perhaps you are confsing me with a "gorgon" which is a hideous ancient mythological creature with snakes instead of hair. I do have snakes but I don't keep them in my hair. And I'm not hideous. Well...not very.

Anyway, for payment I'll accept $2000, plus $15,000 when we reach Alderaan.

----------------------------------------------------------------
Hello Charles Grogan,
Thanks for your mail....well.....which price is $2000, plus $15,000 ,
explain to me...
waiting to heat from you soonest.

Hello Adams,

It depends on how far you want to go. If you want to stay only at Mos Eisley then $2000 will do fine. You could probably get that amount just by selling your land speeder. However, if you want to go all of the way to Alderaan then it will cost you an extra $15,000. The reason for the price difference is to avoid any imperial entanglements. Further, if Alderaan happens to be completely blown away and we are pulled via tractor beam into a space station then I will have a bad feeling about it. That will certainly cost you extra. First of all there is the termination fee for the princess. And then there is the dry cleaning fee if we happen to be stuck in a filthy trash compactor. Adding more to the cost is if our Jedi master happens to be struck down by Darth Vader or any other Lord of the Sith. Yes, I realize that in the event that the Jedi master is struck down he will become more powerful that you can imagine but that doesn't entirely compensate for the loss of companionship, etc.

On the other hand, if you are able to provide a replacement Jedi master, say in the Dagobah system, then I will consider that adequate compensation. I will need transit to that system, though, and preferably in a craft that does not sink in swampy areas. So, in summary, I believe that $2000 will be adequate and look forward to meeting your son Larry. One thing you should be aware of in advance is that he may need to be addressed with a different name in keeping with Jedi customs. I hope that this will not cause undue stress on yourself or your son. Keep in mind that he will receive the best training possible and at the end of the month will receive a discount on any light sabers that he may want to purchase.

Best regards,

Charles (A.K.A. Master Whoa-be-gone)

Hello Charles Grogan ,
Thanks for your reply......Well .......i want to stay at Mos Eisley which is $2000.i am not going to Alderaan and i will need your address information for sending the payment to you and i will want you to tell me when the lesson start.

waiting to read from you soonest.

Dear Adams,

Please, it is preferable that you refer to me as Master Whoa-be-gone. You stated that Larry would be here for the month of June so the sooner the better, seeing that June has already started. First we need to take care of some details:

1. At the end of the month no more training will he require.

2. They let us go, it's the only explanation for the ease of our escape.

3. I will be giving Larry information vital to the survival of the rebellion. It is imperative that he guard this information with the utmost secrecy.

4. You must do what you feel is right, of course.

5. I can only take Larry as far as Anchorhead. From there he will have to get a transport to Mos Eisley.

6. He can waste time with his friends after his chores are done.

If these terms are amenable to you then send payment to:

Master Whoa-be-gone
1138 Tashi Station
Mos Eisley, AZ 100-100-1 SOS

Thank you, and may the farce be with you.


----------------------------------------------------------------

Let me make myself clear:

3. You are a scammer.

4. I am NOT going to send money to a nanny.

5. Don't bother me any more.

Do you understand me now?

You're such an idiot.

I'm pretty sure this could have carried on!
I liked the references - and felt very sad as I recognised most of them.

I once baited a lad dropping the names of British childrens TV characters and programs in as many times as I could.

How about a bait using Star Trek? (Or has it been done)

I agree. That one could have gone on for a long time. Love the references though!

I was laughing so hard and loud that when my roommate came in from work she said, "OK, what bait are you reading now?" I told her about it, and she laughed as loud as I did.

A bait can often go on a very long time despite being packed full of pop-culture references that go unnoticed by the scammer. this is often a very good way to get used to the way scammers communicate in their messages (notice how this one kept right on task as if all the info was real). sometimes you'll catch a lad who's aware of the pop culture stuff, but their reactions can be amusing as well. even if a scammer catches you on these references, you can often keep it going anyway. Even if he knows you are using fake info, he may still think you have a chance of paying him.

anyway, it was probably best that your friend ended this bait when he did, and in the way that he did, since the scammer contacted him through his real music teaching business. this is a good way to end a bait if the scammer has your real life info.

Of course I agree about the real info stuff. Good idea to end it there when that is invovled. But it would be great to get this same screen going for one that doesnt have anything on you.

I'll admit I never seen Star Wars, but I was laughing quite a bit at this, this definitely could have gone on. Someone mentioned pop culture, 2 years ago I published a bait, utilizing all the names of Beatles songs (and then some). If bored, check it out. Don't necro (meaning don't respond in the ad) as the mods here will get excited.

http://forum.419eater.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=73300&highlight=beatlesbait

Even if your not a Beatles fan, anyone should be aware of any of their hit songs. How this went on, I never knew. Recently when I showed this to friends at work, someone pointed out that originally in the bait I claimed to be Jewish, then I turned Christian. I hadn't thought about that back then, hilarious stuff nonetheless
