I responded to a relationship scammer a few days ago. Impressive "She" actually held out for two emails before converting to a 419.

Mr. McF1urr13s is lonely and lookin for a little African love!

Ms. K4zim,

Since my wife left me for my business partner and cheated me out of half our net worth (she took just over 16 million USD) I have been lonely and looking for love.

But I am a rather vain person you might say. If you don't mind me asking, how old are you and what to you look like?

I would like to see a picture or a few pictures of you.

I am rather wealthy, even after my divorce, and if you turn out to be the one for me I would gladly make sure you never wanted another thing in your life.

I hope sincerely to hear from you soon.

J. McF1urr1es


UHOH! She forgot who she was!

Hello ,

Thank you very much for your mail.I am very glad to read through your mail todayand i am admired with you. Let me write you my biography.I was born in Sierra Leone in West Africa.I am a single girl of 26 years and i do not have kids. But i am presently living in Dakar-Senegal which is neighboring country to my country due to the civil war and crisis in my Country Sierra Leone.

I am presently residing here in Dakar as a result of the civil war that was fought in my country some years ago. My late father was a politician and the managing director of a Gold & Mine Ind in Sierra Leone before the rebels attacked our house one early morning and killed my father in cold blood.It was only me that is alive now and i managed to make my way to near by country Senegal where i am living now as a refugee through United Nation Security Agency.

I would like to know more about you.Your likes and dislikes,your hobbies and what you are doing presently. I really want to have a good relationship with you,Once again, A relationship of deep feeling that will construct a mutual understanding. I will tell you more about myself in my next mail. Attached here is my pictures and i will like to see yours,

Hoping to hear from you soon .
Yours in love,
Miss K4tim4,


So K4zim, Kat1ma, whatever. I also got a pic, which I'll post at the end.

But to my reply. J4meson is excited, cuz she's hot!

My dear Katima,

I am joyous to recieve your letter. In response to your questions, I enjoy expensive cars (of which I have a moderate collection), travelling to exotic beautiful locations, and riding horses. I own two stables here in America and a breeding farm in the UK.

I have lived here in California all my life but have visited Africa, Russia, Italy, most of Europe, and China. I hope to visit Japan in March with my business partners.

I have been very successful in the world of international investing, but that topic would probably be very boring for you to hear about.

I want to know more about you! What o you enjoy? I would also like to see more pictures of you, doing things you like to do.

Sincerely,


OK, so we have the name-changing temptress, the horny and lonely millionaire, and as of yet no scam.

Enter K4tima's father, the gold miner.

My Darling,

I am more than happy in your reply to my mail and How was your week? hope fine. Mine is a little bit cold over here in Dakar-Senegal.Like i told you in my last mail, in this camp we are only allowed to go out from the camp only on mondays and fridays of the weeks.Its just like one staying in the prison and i hope by Gods grace i will come out here soon. Redarding your age is no problem to me, what i need is a man who will be caring for me and love me and fulfiled my heart desire.

I don't have any relatives now whom i can go to all my relatives ran away in the middle of the war, the only person i have now is ( Rev.H3nry Bik0) who is the pastor of the (Church) here in the camp he has been very nice to me since i came here but i am not living with him rather i am living in the women's hostel because the camp have two hostels, one for men the other for women. The Pastor's Tel number is ( +***-*****-**-** ) if you call and tell him that you want to speak with me, he will send for me in the hostel. As a refugee here i don't have any right or privilledge to any thing be it money or whatever because it is against the law of this country.I want to go back to my studies because i only attended my first year before the traggic incident that lead to my being in this situation now took place. Please listen to this (it's a secret,even the Revrend don't know about it),i have my late father's statement of account and his death certificate here

with me which i will send to you latter,because when he was alive he deposited some amount of money in one of the leading Financial House which he used my name as the next of kin,the amount in question is $7,000,000.00(Seven Million US Dollars).So i will like you to help me transfer this money to your account and from it you will send some money for me to get my travelling documents and air ticket to come over to meet with you.I kept this secret to people in the camp here so in the light of above i will like you to keep it to yourself and don't tell it to anyone for i am afraid of loosing my life and the money if people gets to know about it.

Remember i am giving you all this information due to the trust i deposed on you.I like honest and understanding people,truthful and a man of vision,truth and hardworking .Have a nice day and think about me.Awaiting to hear from you soonest. The attache here is my picture and i will like to see yours.

Yours in love,
Miss K4tima.


So she wants me to serve as executor of the estate, and wants to see my picture. Unfortunately, J4meson is very self-concious because he is unbearably ugly (see my avatar, or if you have a great ugly pic please post it).

I'm excited. But these don't seem to be pics of the same person...maybe it's her sister!

You don't need to rush to send a picture. Just be patient and waste its time. Rename a .dll file to .gif or .jpg and send that. Do that a couple of times and, of course, you don't know why they can't open the file. There must be something wrong with their computer. They will probably just give up asking for the picture.

Don't bother pointing out that there are two different people in their pictures. That might be enough to warn off some other potential victim.

Also look for ways to de-educate. "Oh are you in the...( Salvation Navy, United Open...etc.) refugee camp over near Rufisque (or make up a city name)?"

I'm looking to give the scammer openings to bring in other characters, thereby making them more busy and increasing the confusion factor.

Also, I've heard of using .dll files to screw them up. Do I just use any .dll file on my computer or are there ones I should avoid?

Don't actually change the .dll file name of the original file. Make a copy of an older one someplace else on your computer and than change the name of that file. I don't think it matters which file you use, but I'm sure some of the more experienced people will be along soon to advise.

Also don't try to over complicate the situation just yet. The idea is for you to do as little work as possible, and to keep them busy. Don't over-think it and try to be too elaborate. Try to drag it out.

ALWAYS be sure to make a copy of a .dll file before renaming it. They can be vital to your PC working correctly. But as long as you do a copy, paste, and then rename that you will be fine. It doesn't really matter which file you use either.

@high-seas:

I never go mucking about in my computer's own files. You can make a junk file whatever size you want here: http://www.xnet.se/fd/

I've made several with different extensions titled "passport" "mypicture" etc, save them in a baiting folder and just use them over and over for different baits.

You may use any DLL file off your system you want. The larger, the better.

Simply copy any DLL to a new name, such as "myface.jpg", "passport.jpg" or what you like. If you like to increase confusion, you can open the copy with a text editor and convert the first lines with some photgraphic stuff, such as "jpg produced 20090206" or similar.

In a recent nice little bait with a gentleman from Ghana, I sent him a real JPG instead of a binary (Using Linux, I normally give them some renamed kernel stuff to chew on).

I am not sure whether thermographics have been used with baits so far. It was a nice experience. My friend down in Accra got really upset when I told him after his sixth enquiry that my photograph was sent clear and perfectly visible on my computer screen.

For an example, just have a look at this (this is a lent picture I found in the depth of the net. Condider it just for demonstration. The colour scaling at the right side would need some Gimp or Photoshop treatment, of course).

Enjoy.

Very Truly Yours,

Thanks for the comments, guys. Keep the great info coming.

@riffraff,

The thermoimaging is a great idea. If you don't mind, I'm going to take your pic and 'shop out the scale to possibly use in this and other baits.

I also came across a really cool ASCII camera online (thank you StumbleUpon) that works off your webcam.

http://www.krazydad.com/asciicam/

There's also an "alien cam" and a "kaleidoscope cam" that I plan to use in making some completely unusable pictures with. Think George Bush's face translated into ASCII. Razz
