I have decided to register on the 419eater forums after I have recieved a very peculiar email on an old discussion board account I don't use anymore. I've had a read through some of the Scambaiting Stories on here, and this email seems to bear all the hallmarks of a possible scammer. Therefore I thought it would be best to bring this one to attention, who knows how many people could be taken in by this email.
Below is a copy of the notification of the message I recieved:

Certainly appears suspicious, something like a romance scam.
Therefore I thought it would be best to bring this one to attention, who knows how many people could be taken in by this email.
If you are interested in sticking around to bait, make sure you reply from a different e-mail address.
Information on this is found in stickies at the top of the page. Once you're settled, ask for a mentor, & you're well on the way to annoying these scammers!
Baiting really is the only effective deterrent to messages like that. You've already helped by posting the message: if someone has received something similar, they will be taken straight here, to be educated about this type of scam.
