Hi people

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:

Hi OpFor,

Certainly appears suspicious, something like a romance scam.

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.

Hi first apply for a mentor here http://forum.419eater.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=122306

Next disguise your details in your post.

AND post email headers and some more information on the 'scammer's' profile.
