I've gotten this jackass to already Federal Express a "Certified Check" to me twice. (A safe address) I've been baiting him from 2 other accounts too. He's so fun, I thought I'd share the lad. Below is his initial script that he used to reply to my legitimate Room for Rent ad.
Have fun and please let me share your bait with me!

Hi Host,
I am a lawyer in AFRICA and would be coming down to the states in a couple of weeks and i am looking for an apartment to stay for the time i would be spending which is going to be about 4 months.
The bills for the apartment would be paid by my client who recides in the UK but has his family in the states so he would be coming around soon,so i would like you to get back to me immediately you have received this mailso that we can conclude on the terms and conditions of the apartment.
THANKS AND HAPPY NEW YEAR TO YOU.
love kelly.

He's a lot of fun. I only wish he really did need a place to stay. Id love to bait him from one room over and hear him race out the door to the Western Union office every two hours.

Howdy there,
Sorry for the late reply, but i have been out of the country for about 5 months, and have only just returned. I notice you are looking for a place to stay. Well sir, would it by any chance be in Texas? i am the owner of a small oil and petroleum company known as 3MU fuels. I think i would be able to help you with your situation. Also i noticed you are a lawyer. Maybe while you are here i would be able to hire you? money is no object. Please forward me any relevant details and i shall see what can be done.


Regards,
Mik3 Ump3nc3

and have got this back

Well, since you're an oil tycoon, and the lad would be staying in your 1 bedroom poolhouse complete with private bath /kitchen/ and daily maid service. I think 1500.00 should be adequate .

He sends me checks for $3200 for some reason. Hopefully you have a safe address and you can get him to Fed Ex the check.
This guy is great! I'm working on him on a new account as we speak.

@ Lagoskid, how do you set up fake address ? Is it just a local P.O. Box or what ? Just trying to learn.

For apartment prices, say $500 a month for a 1-bedroom apartment. I don't live in Texas, but I assume they are cheaper than California apartments.

That (lad) first reply is 100% cut and paste ..... if you want a fake cheque just play it straight and go along with everything he asks ..... keep your answers short and sweet.

This lad is, more than likely, a Street Lad who passes his victims address details up a chain of command . .... I suggest a straight bait until you have a Tracking Number for the cheque that you can confirm, and then turn it into whatever bait you want ... and watch the quality of English go severely downhill Smile


<Promotion> ....turn you eatername Orange and get access to some established drop boxes.

Spot is 100% right. This guy is crude enough in his technique that he will FedEx a fake check right up front and hope you wire him the "change".
If you play it real straight and normal, he'll spend the money to send the check.


Then its fun to watch him start to panic. He never threatens me at the end, only promises to report me to the Federal Authorities for scamming HIM!
