I don't know what it is about my relatives that attracts lads, but this takes the cake. My aunt, a mother of six kids who now lives alone, got roped into one of these.

Yesterday, I was at a little family gathering, and I mentioned the details on who lads are and why they are not nice people, and of course she goes pale in the face. Big surprise; she had been emailing and IMing one for over a year.

I had her forward all his emails to a dummy account of mine. She's still digging some up, so sadly I don't have the full text yet, but here's what I have so far. The bastard goes by the alias "Alvin Johnson," and operates out of "[email protected]" First, he tells her he works on an oil rig, sending this romantic gem:

Quote:
me and my collegue,i am the one in a blue overall
i love you
Image


The file is simply named "men.jpg," and it's obvious from looking at it that it's a stock photo. Then, he later hits her up for $2000, saying that, being a smart oil rig engineer and all, he has an idea that could make millions. My aunt doesn't actually have that much money, and she tells him that.

A few more heartfelt love letters follow, such as:

Quote:
Hi baby
i got your response,please baby just try to do your best okay
i love you and its okay to me me...LOL
take care sweetie
i am off to work now
alvin


He sends a few equally generic pictures of "Alvin," which he probably snagged off of a social networking site.

Quote:

Looks just like the guy in the overalls. About twenty years younger.

Next, he tells her that his daughter is sick, and he must fly to Nigeria. Big shock, huh? So now, he needs $700 to pay the doctors for her operation.

Again, my dirt poor aunt doesn't have that much money, so a few days later the lad claims his "daughter" died and that he was now stuck in Nigeria. She had to send him $400 for a plane ticket.

Quote:
Name;OKEZI OGODO
ENUGU,NIGERIA
this is the hotels manager info
he will help me pick up the funds
i love you
your husband


Glad to know they're apparently now married. Once again, she doesn't have enough money, so he's still "stuck" there. However, until I stepped in, they had been chatting on IM too. Luckily, she hadn't given out any bank information, or so she says.

This guy might send emails as long as fortune cookies...

Quote:
baby what you ask for
i love you....


...but he's clearly using a tactic of trying to work his mark down into giving him what they have. She doesn't have $2000? Fine, let's come up with another stupid scam for $700. Still doesn't have it? Work down to $400. I'm guessing if they kept talking, he'd eventually try to hit her up for $12.33.

I'm trying to bait the guy under another dummy address right now, posing as some wealthy, lonely stripper that wants to help him out with his new idea. We'll see how that goes.

Hate to double post, but I did a little IP tracing on the guy and found that there's a large possibility that he has also done scams as "Mr. James Putman" and "ABUDU KOFFI."

The latter of these has been dealt with on eater before: http://forum.419eater.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=143952.

The plan's going well so far. He didn't seem to have any problems with my random email. Not bad for not having his original scam letter.

Quote:
Alvin,
Recently, you sent me an email about a business venture you were having trouble with... something about an oil rig? I have a bad memory, I'm so sorry. But I really think you are a sweet guy, far too sweet, and I want to help you out.

I don't have all that much money, but I'll do whatever I can to help. Let me know what you need.

XOXO
Alexa (me)


And this evening, I got:

Quote:
hello alexa
thanks for your response,what can you come up with cause i still need
about $4000
alvin


Wish me luck.

EDIT: Now I found out that my aunt has actually been getting calls from this guy. Apparently, he called her five times today, all from different (most likely spoofed) numbers. I'm having her keep a log of em, and if he calls again, maybe some audio.

Go get 'em, icepick!

And I hope your aunt gets over him. At least she is aware of what this scumbucket is. I'm glad she didn't give him any money. She actually did a pretty good job of baiting - keeping him going for over a year without sending any money. Maybe in the future she could take up a new hobby.

I believe this guy also calls himself Alvino Johnson - an Italian "philosopher" who lives & teaches in England but also works at a university in the USA - lots of lovey stuff - phone calls from a gentleman with heavy accent - and then want to fly to Australia to meet me - sends "copy" of Air France travel arrangements - real flights but not verifiable - flew to Dubai travelled to Nigeria (surprise surprise) to buy "antiquities" - email address "[email protected]" - all sorts of problems, hotel raided & everything stolen, all sorts of danger, needless to say, never arrived in Oz - a week later, get an email from a "dr. Kelvin Usman ABu" the "Chief Medical Director of Divine Hospital" in Abuja telling me that my husband (didn't know we had married) had been in a motor accident on his way to the airport - all the typical scam crap. After months of him trying to get cash out of me, he eventually gave up but only after trying all sorts of intimidation tactics. These guys are grubs.

Well well, he's back! The idiot contacted me yesterday - let's see how long I can string him along this time. What a jerk!
Oh yay, he still loves me. He promises that he will write me an email to tell me why he wasn't in contact for 17 months. Despite my prompting, he wouldn't talk about it on IM except to say that his friend was shot in Nigeria and then he was arrested in the USA and that he's just been discharged from before the court and has now returned to England. Guess he couldn't think that fast - I was throwing questions at him so quickly. I've told him I that I REALLY want to continue our "relationship" but that until he writes to me, I won't talk to him. He promises me that he will send it tonight......can't wait!

I think your aunt is very lucky to have a family who supports her like you do. All too often relatives react quite differently: They blame the victims for their "stupidity" or ridicule them in a situation when they are already emotionally vulnerable..

Icepick and janettemydear, I have some pretty nasty stuff in mind for this guy.
It will take a couple of days to implement, but at the very least it will give him some blood pressure spikes.
