Im going to post the bait shortly, as he is trying repeatedly to get the mtcn and has emailed customer service as well lol. My question is, when I reply to the customer service email, do i need to keep the headers in the body of the email? Or can i delete everything but his message and simply reply? My concern is that the system wont deliver my reply to him because im doing it wrong. Thanks for any help!

Nevermind it worked! Ok gonna start posting the bait.. its my first one that I got the mugu to keep re-trying even though he doesnt want to lol. My emails in Blue, his in Red.

So about a year ago, before i knew about baiting, a scammer contacted me on craigslist when i was selling something. I knew it was a scam and told him to get lost. I thought of him and found his email address and sent out a message seeing if it was still active. It was!

*Gave him bogus address so I cant actually receive check*

Mike you must have written the address down wrong, the package
didnt get to me. How much am I supposed to wire you? Ill just do
it now and then go to the Fedex office and pick up the check. Let
me know

Thanks so much for your mail and i realy appreciate your kind gesture
that you want to sell the item to me, The amount on the check is
$3500 all you need to do is deduct your own money for the item and the
rest to be wire to the shipping company via western union and from it
you going to deduct the western union charges and extra $100 for your
running around



Name : Jeremiah Colon
ADDRESS : 23 North Wood Drive
CITY : Barstow
ZIPCODE : 92311

And once you get the money send to them Via Western Union Money Transfer,

you will be provided with a western union receipt in which you are to get back

to me with the western union information below:

The Sender Name & Address
Total Amount Sent
M.T.C.N (10 digit the control number on the reciept #)
And also the Mapquest to your location for the shipper to locate you easily

when comong for the pick up

Hi Mike I went online and transferred you the $2900. On the site I listed you and Jeremiah as recipients so either of you can claim
the funds. See below for how to access the MTCN number and claim
your funds. Let me know when you recieve so I can get ahold of the
shipper. Thank you

*Attached was the m7cn s3cur3 email*

Youve got to be kidding me Mike. I am sorry but I am getting angry
now, this has been going on for too long. I SENT the money
already, did you get the email with instructions?? The $2900 has
already left my account, I cant just re wire money that isnt there.
I have transferred money online like this many times and never
have had a problem. The process to get the MTCN is in place and
cant be altered. Please tell Jeremiah to simply follow the
instuctions and retrieve the money, its alot of money to just be in
limbo and I just want to be done with this.

Okay thanks so much for your mail, Since you are the one that
>transffered the money can you retrieve the M.T.C.N online and

>COLON to make everything easier

Mike I am work and cannot be bothered with this.. The system to get
the MTCN tracks your IP address for security and I cannot log on to
get it anyway. Mike, what is the problem? I would think Jeremiah
would want to get his $2900 back. You know I havent even cashed
your check yet? I have it here and am going to the bank shortly. I
did this out of good faith and now its becoming so much of a hassle
that I may have to reconsider the whole transaction. Have Jeremiah
call the customer service number or email customer service if he is
having a problem. The system is not difficult though so im not
sure why he cant just do it.

*He didnt respond promptly so I sent this*

I guess you dont want your money. Fine, I am going to reverse the transfer and sell to someone else. Thank you for wasting my time.
If you do not reply that you are going to log on and retrieve your
MTCN number as directed, then im canceling with you. I must hear
from you by Monday as to how you want to handle this or im

Thanks so much for your mail am going to follow your instruction
>when do you want the shipping company to come for picked up in

The money is still showing as being not picked up, please let me know when the funds are retrieved thank you.

Hello Charles,

Mike I dont know why he is having trouble, the process should only
take a few minutes I am being told. I called Western Union to see
what else we can do, the customer service rep told me to tell you
to email them. She said there is an email address on the website
that you and Jeremiah are on with the boxes. She said to email
that address with whatever the problem is and she may be able to
get you the MTCN. Let me know if that helps.

*Now all the while he has been logging off and on trying to get the mtcn.. he had about 70 correct clicks and 33 refreshes lol. So then he emailed "Customer Service"* Twisted Evil

Hello we are sorry to hear that you are having trouble retrieving
your MTCN number. This process is in place to ensure security and
has helped many people retrieve their MTCN number quickly and

I show per our records that you have clicked a total of 70 boxes
correctly, so you are doing it right. Please continue and complete
the process to retrieve your MTCN and collect funds. The funds are
currently available for pickup once the process is completed and
the MTCN is disclosed. Thank you and please let me know if you

If I remember correctly, you would have received an e-mail with instructions on how to reply. I'm pretty sure, though, that leaving the headers in the body of the e-mail is not a very good idea.

Heres the latest he sent to customer service and their reply:

These process is given me problem can you please help me to retrieveit because the sender told me i can email you to help me
retrieve it kindly help me retrieve the M.T.C.N

The best way to recover the MTCN from this system is to make a grid
and tape it your computer or monitor to accurately keep track of
the blocks. In other words, you would label each block with a
number so you can quickly count. An example is below of how to
track the rows and columns.

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9

Simply make a chart like the one above and tape it to your computer
or monitor and count the blocks to complete the process. I hope
this helps thank you.

His profound grief over the loss of his mother is quite touching. I hope clicking all those boxes will help him recover. Laughing
