Hi guys, I really must say I'm new here, I've created my account few minutes ago, but I've managed to read a couple of topics.

Actually, I am from Poland and my good colleague has lately received few mails from a barrister from Zambia. He informed her that she is "a next of Kin" and she's inherited few million bucks, her distant relative died in a terrible accident in an oil shaft somewhere in Africa (LOL!) and there are money, funds waiting to be transfered to her bank account, thus he ordered her to send him a scan of her ID and some other personal informations.
My colleague, well, she is a clever girl, she asked me for help in translating those letters, of course we didn't believe in that shit at all. We sent him a message ( I didn't know this site then), that we don't believe him, we checked his identity, its fake, we gonna inform Police, etc. We thought it's the end of this story, but...

Yesterday, he sent another message (i've changed my friend's name to KASIA (Kate in English):

My friend put an advertising on one of polish sites, when she was looking for new clients, probably there he found her name and email. I'm quite surprised that a guy from Africa visited a polish website, well i'm fresh. I'm impressed by his knowlede of English, he constantly uses formal language, I found few mistakes, but still he's damn good in using English.

What could you tell me about scammers like this "Stuborn Guy". He invited her to the capital of Togo, is he serious or it's just a bluff? What next step do you propose? I would like to have some fun ^^

Hi Markinkowski. Welcome to eater!

Odds are that he's not expecting you to come to Togo, rather he wants you to say you can't come, and he will make arrangements to hire a lawyer, etc. for you.

If you want to bait him be sure and do it from a safe account, and not your regular email account. Read the stickies and sign up for a mentor.

If he has your friends real life info which I assume he does just stop all contact with him, we never bait using any real life information. These guys might be a long way away but it is possible they have a friend close by who could pay you a visit if you start to mess with them. Never use any real info if you want to bait, welcome and read the stickies and get yourself a mentor before you start. It is unlikely a lad would come after you in your own country but we do not take any kind of risk here. There are plenty of similiar lads out there who you could bait who have no real life info on you or your friend.

Regarding the invite it coud be a bluff, on the other hand it could be a genuine invite to his country so he could kidnap you/hold you to ransom and even in worse case scenarios kill you as well. I don't have the link to the report of the guy who went to West Africa on the invite of a scammer and was brutally murdered but I'm sure someone will post the link sooner or later.

I can sense tunes of unnecessary logic in your mails, meaning that you can never work with us to actualize this project no matter how we try to convince you - Mr. Chidi 0kpala

You will have to munch the statistics of the transfer so I can give to them - Mr. James Hessom Hessom

If not that you only hide behind computer and be playing prawns with us - Benny Clifford

WOW, that's little scary, to be honest with you.

I really appreciate all these tips for a beginner like me, thanks guys, of course I'm going to read all stickies, faq and to start my own "career" as a scambaiter. I've told my friend to do not respond on his next messages and just to block his email account for a safety reasons.

Cheers Smile
