I was looking to sell a Fujitsu Lifebook online via Kijiji.com and buysell.com in my city. Where I received the following email from Frank Larry:

"hi Rolly. hope you are good today? hope it's perfectly working? and what is your firm price? the shipping will be to my daughter who went for a charity work in nigeria because she just called me this morning that she needs laptop. so i will have to add extra $80 for the shipping and handling via USPS EXPRESS for her over there. Hope you will accept payment via western union or paypal because am located here in University of western ontario.awaiting for your prompt response.
Frank."

Personally I found his email was very interesting to me for a couple of reasons:

1. They used the University of Western Ontario (in London, Ontario) which I thought was very creative.
2. The shipping instructions said to use the United States Postal Service (USPS) and that we both live in Canada. (I don't think we have that service here) Wink

So I decided to reply and have some found with him and I would blog on the trials and tribulations of Frank Larry, a Nigerian Scammer.

I created a Table of Contents to make the viewing easier:
